NFC East rivalry led to more tussling between the two. In an interview with GQ, Beckham reignited the feud.
“If I wasn't playing him twice a year, maybe people wouldn't bring it up so much,” Beckham told GQ. “But now it'll be a lot more media attention for him, attention that I don't really look for, attention that I don't need. The reason that he’s become so relevant is because of me.”

"I'll be straightforward," Norman told Fowler, "I couldn't care less for the person by any means. ... Presently don't misunderstand me, he's a decent player or whatever, yet he's not what he supposes he is. In the event that you hit folks like that, on the off chance that you totally stick them and shake them up, they can't identify with that. So they begin rationalizing like, 'Goodness, he touched me.' They don't know how to react in light of the fact that they never got hit that way. So me, each time I see him, I'm going to hit him in the mouth. I couldn't care less. Until he quits crying and (swearword)."
Norman explained on the March subtweet episode.
"He's yapping over yonder," Norman told Fowler. "Furthermore, (Beckham doesn't) sound like he's appearing well and good. He just went (in the draft) in the first round and everything is given to him. He gets to New York. ... He gets one imbecilic little ball, and everyone in New York (cherishes) this person, since that is the greatest measure of media on the planet. ... So all that went to his enormous old head, and oddly enough he supposes he's someone else."
