GREEN BAY, Wis. --?Josh Norman has no doubt spent time this week watching film of Aaron Rodgers in preparation for Sundays game at FedEx Field.But it wasnt game film that came to Normans mind Wednesday when asked to describe Rodgers. Instead, the?Washington Redskins cornerback channeled The Lord of the Rings.That is pretty much Gandalf the White over there, Norman said of Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers quarterback, during a conference call with reporters. Thats a wizard. Thats who he is, to me. Tom Brady is Gandalf the Grey and hes just an upper class of that. For me, thats the best of the best, man.I think a wizard pretty much describes everything there is to know about the type of quarterback [Rodgers is]. ... Thats him and Tom Brady. Of course, you have others. Yeah, I mean, thats the crème of the crème.Norman was referring to J.R.R. Tolkiens series of books and Peter Jacksons movies, in which Gandalf the Grey is killed but returns as Gandalf the White.When asked what he thought of the comparison, Rodgers said, I love it, man. Hes one of my favorite characters. I appreciate the comparison. Gandalf kind of fell into oblivion and then he came back and hes the White. Hes a lot more powerful as the White. I dont really have any gray in the beard yet but Ill take any compliment from Josh like that, especially a Lord of the Rings one. He didnt say Gimli so I felt pretty good about that.Norman, who is in his first year in Washington, has apparently integrated himself into the Redskins Lord of the Rings culture. Quarterback Kirk Cousins made reference to the series last season.Week after week, opponents have praised Rodgers despite the Packers struggles this season. Theyre coming off a 47-25 loss at Tennessee that dropped them to 4-5. Theyre on a three-game losing streak and have lost four of their last five as they prepare for the Redskins in Sunday night.Diagnosing whats wrong with Rodgers and the Packers has become a popular topic this season, but Norman wouldnt partake in any of it.Man, I dont pay no attention to that, Norman said. Thats all people that are on the outside of the game and not an insider. Thats all people who like to point out the Xs and Os but, at the end of the day, look at the overall thing. That guy can hit you at any time, any place, anywhere, any given day. Any given game.I really dont care what the outside noise is. I know who were facing and thats a cerebral quarterback thats the best of the best at what hes doing. Regardless of what others may think of him, I know for a fact that that is the toughest quarterback challenge to face because he has everything in his toolbox, in his arsenal, to make them win.Norman said he wouldnt be lulled into thinking the Redskins were getting Rodgers, a two-time NFL MVP, at anything less than his best.What Im concerned about is facing a cerebral quarterback that can light you up at any time, Norman said. Yeah, Im sure theyre going to come in hungry. They took a pretty bad beating last week, they really did. I dont feel like theyre going to come in here and lay this thing down. Theyre going to come out here fiery hot.A-Rod already said that its on him, so Im pretty sure that hes going to come out ready to go. Ive got to be ready to go, too, because hes not going to shy away from nothing, I know that. I need to be on top of my Ps and Qs, for sure.
