Following the Super Bowl, most of the attention goes to the winning team. They get to celebrate in the confetti and enjoy the greatest feeling they can in their career. Bud, there is another side to it all. While one team feels pure joy, another experiences incredible heartbreak.
Josh Norman showed the other side of it all. The Panthers had a truly amazing season. They went 15-1 during the regular season and ran through the playoffs. It was a six-month road that was wonderful the whole way until the end. That's a lot to sink in and Norman had to do it under the national spotlight.
There is always next year.
