Default The Brawl

Jerome Solomon's article is about Kubiak's Saturday night pregame speech bringing the team together, but I really liked this one part...

Did you see the Texans come together and respond when Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan acted as if he wanted to tussle on their sideline? A host of Texans — the finesse squad that was manhandled by the Jets in the season opener — jumped into the fray.

To protect the guilty, we won't name any names, but one Texan, not wanting to get ejected for throwing punches, left LP Field with a small chunk of red hair that used to belong to Finnegan. If Finnegan wants it back, he can try to retrieve it at Reliant Stadium in November.

The Brawl was definitely good "team building" for us, no matter who's hair was pulled.

I remember once when Cushing tackled Johnson and then literally picked him up off the ground by his shoulder pads instead of grabbing him by the hand to help him up. I think he was trying to put it in the little speedsters head that he was a lot bigger and stronger than him.

I have to rewatch it to confirm my first impression but I thought I saw Mario trying to throw a haymaker over the pile and was worried about an ejection.

I saw Mario jump right it and I saw furry in his eyes. I didn't see him throwing any haymakers though. He looked like he was just pushing people out of the way then starting pulling Titans off of his own men.

So did my wife. Mario was trying to swim into the pile, and a fist shot out that I was 85% sure from the angle wasn't his. Just looked like it because his arms had been flying from trying to swim to the middle.

I noticed him too. I'm not sure what he was trying to do, but the dude was pissed.

I might get flamed for saying this, but towards the end of the brawl Finnegan came out of the pile with his helmet off. I was soo wanting a Texan player to drop him like a sack of rocks. Shut that prick up for a while and have him eat from a straw for a while.

The thing I found funny about the whole brawl was that David Anderson came out of it with the penalty. The wife and I just looked at each other and laughed. The smallest dude on the team! LOL!

That sounds real likely. I didn't back it up to re-watch it at the time but there were some huge Mario looking arms going over the pile.

Interesting comment at nfl.com:

Quote:
I don't think the Titans have to worry about anyone but the Colts right now in the division. Though the Texans won yesterday, I think it's going to get a lot harder for them to win the next few weeks if the NFL does the proper investigation of the incident on the sidelines yesterday. There should be good video proof of Texan players beating Cortland Finnegan's head against a bench during the scuffle, which is why Jason Jones waded into the melee to get Finn out of there. Looked like Mario Williams was in on it. Texans aren't too tough without Mario. Hope NFL sits those involved for a few games.

Finnegan is just mad he got owned all day by who ever he was on. JJ and AJ lit him up.

Also, if you suspend Texans for fighting, Finnegan has to also be suspended for wading into our bench and starting the fight.
