    Personally I do not want to see Norwood wear a Broncos jersey ever again.

    Hopefully this doesn't get flagged or come across as trolling, but many people, including the coaching staff must have been blinded/encouraged by Norwood's Super Bowl return. To be honest, it was kind of a bone headed decision to not call for the fair catch and stumped Carolina so badly, it lead to a large return that I can't believe he didn't score on. With an offense that we all knew would be suspect, bringing in a skilled returner should've definitely been a focus in the offense. With all of the undrafted RBs and speedy guys, I think we definitely needed to find a specialist and make a roster spot for him. Norwood clearly showed he's not that guy Sunday night.
    OMG, I said the same thing today. CAR thought it was a fair catch so they stopped. It had nothing to do with him.

    Norwood made two major mistakes in a critical game - alone. I can completely understand how a player or two may get emotional and shove or smack the top of his helmet...these are competitors. Talib showed Norwood that he felt he took it too far and apologized today. Norwood should have felt like crap...his one mistake if it was not made could have changed the outcome.

    I would have benched him but apparently Kube is being stubborn as usual expecting a different result every time he tries the same thing. Refer to the endless rushing attempts that come with loss of downs and yards.

    I just want to know which draft guru hired this idiot? I don't think he makes the roster on any NFL team. I bet if we had NO returner and just let punts wander into the end-zone or bounce around we'd still come out on top!

    I guess Talib is sick of him too.

    Nope, it's not fine for teammates to push each other on the field. If you have an issue talk to them on the sidelines, or deal with it in the locker room. Pushing a player as they walk off the field is wrong. As for how fans feel about that player, it doesn't matter to the issue of Talib and Norwood,

    The team needs fowler or Taylor. They might not be the most physically gifted out there but I gaurentee they have a much higher football iq then Norwood.

    We just need someone to call fair catch or take a knee in the end zone on kickoffs. Most importantly to think on the fly.
    Talib has done it before and a return is big for flipping field position. Not only does it put your offense in a better position, but it also helps the defense out, if the offense doesn't gain a yard.

    I hope Elway finally realizes that it's worth spending a roster spot on a player who can instantly flip the field for you. No more guys who are slightly serviceable returners, get a guy who can change momentum.

    I just read that Talib has apologized to Norwood and that there's no hard feelings. Fair enough, move on to next week. But the entire team needs to know they can't turn on each other.

    Now, who should be back returning punts next week?...How about Talib?

    The only time I would condone pushing a teammate is if they were out there giving no effort, just going through the motions to collect a check, and even then it would be tough to condone. Norwood's mistakes weren't a lack of effort, just screwups, kind of like accidentally shooting oneself.

    I didn't know until reading this tonight that it was Talib, but after reading that, I hope Elway moves on from Talib after the season. You can't have a cancer in the locker room, Talib is a big talent, but he's a headache.
    Not sure what Elway will do after the season but this is an opportunity for Kubiak to hold Talib accountable.

    It's a garbage move. I hope that some teammates called him out on it. I was disappointed in Norwood fumbling two punts last night, and I question whether he's a guy who should be back there, but teammates shouldn't act that way, and I'd actually hope they suspend Talib for a game because of it, conduct detrimental to the team. I don't remember anyone shoving Talib when he was absolutely atrocious in the first half of the Super Bowl and was taking 15 yard penalties like it was grabbing a drink of water.
