Erik Palmer-Brown USA Jersey . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. ASHBURN, Va. -- To no ones surprise, Josh Norman is sticking to his style, on and off the field.The Washington Redskins cornerback is not about to let the NFLs fines or officials yellow flags deter him from doing what he does, whether its speaking his mind about what he considers bad calls or sticking a hand in an opposing receivers face.As his Redskins (4-3-1) get set to host the Minnesota Vikings (5-3) on Sunday, Norman is sure the league is keeping a particularly close eye on him.Hes also certain hes not going to alter anything because of it.What am I going to change, my aggressiveness? ... For what? No. Its what we do. Weve been doing it since Day 1. Whys it going to change now? Because its aggressive? Hands to the face? So? Im going to come back and Im going to be aggressive in the same way the next time -- and the next time after that, Norman said. Youre going to have to actually physically run through me to beat me. Thats whats going to have to happen. At the end of the day, thats how I play, that style of football.Washington is coming off its bye. In the teams most recent game, a 27-27 tie in London against the Cincinnati Bengals on Oct. 30, Norman was whistled five times as he was matched up against wideout A.J. Green, including four flags for illegal hands to the face.Afterward, Norman ripped the field judge for poor officiating, a diatribe that prompted a fine of $25,000 from the league that he is appealing.He also was docked $9,115 earlier this season for a bow-and-arrow pantomime that drew a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct after an interception.I enjoy the refs. I love them. They love me. We out there, were playing with each other. They say (my) first name; I call them by theirs. We have fun with each other, Norman said. I dont think thats one of the things thats the problem here.Normman has picked off only one pass since joining the Redskins as a free agent after the Carolina Panthers surprisingly let him leave over the offseason.dddddddddddd He generally has managed to play the same sort of shutdown defense he displayed as an All-Pro a year ago.Norman hasnt always been deployed as a traveling cornerback assigned to the opponents top receiver -- remember Washingtons Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Antonio Brown? -- but there is no doubt he is a major cog in the defense.He cuts off one side of the field for us, defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois said. Thats a plus.And coach Jay Gruden leaves no doubt how he feels about what Norman has done in a Redskins uniform, whether its during plays, between them, or in front of reporters microphones.Ive been very impressed with Josh from the day that he got here, Gruden said Wednesday, referring to Normans work ethic.Then, turning to the rest of what having Norman on the team entails, the coach added:As far as his off-the-field antics or on-the-field penalties that hes gotten, hes a physical football player. Hes in your face and hes very competitive. You dont want to change that about him at all.Game notes WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) missed practice Wednesday, while S Will Blackmon (left thumb) and RT Morgan Moses (left ankle) were limited. ... .
