Default Re: F The Associated Press

here's how i would've written it, to make it seem as unbiased and accurate as possible:

The Dolphins had the ball at the Texans 25 on Sunday when Green gave the ball to Ted Ginn Jr. The rookie fumbled, then picked the ball up and reversed field as the defense chased him.

Texans defensive tackle Travis Johnson hates Trent Green and wanted to hurt him.

Johnson apologized to Houston coach Gary Kubiak during the game for the penalty. But Johnson was furious later, accusing Green of blocking him at the knees on purpose. This is because Johnson hates Green.

Darn it! My rep on a message board just went down!

And God Forbid that I actually expect a professional football player to keep his cool or at the very least say something semi intelligent after a football game... especially when talking about a guy who got injured.

At the very least he could have said he thought it was a dirty hit, apologized for it, and left it at that... but nope... he wanted to get his sound bites out there... I'm sure the Texans will enjoy the negative publicity they get all this week.

unless Johnson is a complete *****, i'm pretty sure he knew that, as he's pointing and yelling at the motionless rag doll on the field, that said rag doll isn't probably in good shape. unless of course he's an *****, as i mentioned before.

there is a reason people get fined for hits, they're illegal, flagged or not.

so when you say cheap shot you mean what? hits you dont like, hits that hurt players, what?

The fact is Green brought the injury on himself. The reader has no clue as to what actually happened by reading that article.

Report the facts. Why is any spin necessary at all???

Default Re: TJ Worst person in the NFL

btw, as a QB, you're taught that, when there's a fumble or interception or designed play or whatever, you have to go low to block. just doesn't make much sense for the QB to try and block the 300 pound lineman. physics don't work in the QB's favor there. so you will ALWAYS see the QB go low. always.

For the record...

I don't believe that Green was trying to take out TJ's knee.
I don't believe that Green is much of a tackler to be honest.
I don't believe that TJ was trying to take out Green by kneeing him in the head.
I don't believe TJ even saw him until he felt the contact.
TJ didn't stand over a motionless, helpless Green and taunt him. TJ fired off a few choice words at the guy who he thought (mistakenly IMO) tried to block him low. When he saw that Green wasn't moving he dropped it and moved away.

Much of this is nothing more than misunderstanding and people judging it by what they heard or read. TJ isn't Albert Haynesworth. He didn't jump on somebodies head.
