That's the PC thing for D Brown to say, but it looks like a punch to me, and my homer eyes think it looks like a retaliation-type punch.

Dude, if that was a punch D Brown better find a new line of work. One that might entail becoming, say a designer? A florist?

Default Re: D.Brown Getting Dirty

if he was going to throw a punch he wouldnt be getting up, he'd be throwing a punch. i'm with duane's explanation, it looked like he was getting up and got pushed back down - and put his arm out to catch himself. he probably did add a little extra in retaliation, but the jags can blame their own for that particular outcome.

Yeah, he punched him. Without context it's impossible to be able to say for certain what that punch means but it was definitely a punch.

And most everyone here is right. It wasn't much of a punch. Just a little tap to let the guy know Brown was paying attention I suspect.

Default Re: D.Brown Getting Dirty

I hate seeing stuff like this from the Texans, I expect it from teams like the Jets, but not the Texans. I know it's football and all, but throwing a punch during a game is just asinine as it can get you kicked out and hurt the team. Do you really want to lose our LT for the rest of the game because he wanted to jab a guy after giving up a fumble? I don't. Make your statement with your play, crap like this is petty and stupid. I hope he gets fined because we all know Kubiak won't do anything about this. If Brown got ejected for that, he could have cost us the game. Stupid stupid stupid.

If he would've thrown a punch, the guy with the black and white stripes standing relatively close would've thrown some laundry.

It's one of thems there optical delusions.

I agree. Brown will have to answer for this though, for sure. The O-linemen have an ongoing thing amongst themselves that if any of them gets singled out, said player has to pay a fine. Their thinking is that they're a single unit and should not be identified individually. If you do something like holding, or personal foul, or get called out publicly.... you pay the fine. Certainly that isn't going to be a huge wallet killer for Brown but the point is that it isn't just going to go unnoticed. I also think Kubiak or Benton will definitely have a talk with him since this has become so apparent. Like you said, it could have had a huge impact on this game... or future games.

Default Re: D.Brown Getting Dirty

It was cross between a shove and a punch. If the Glitter Kitty was standing it would have been a shove. Players push down on players getting up all the time, Brown just had further to go. Was it called for, not really, but it happens 50 times a game every weekend. This isn't exactly a Zapruder Film, if you went in to the NFL Films vault, I sure I could find just as many Jags doing something along the same lines last Sunday.

Hey Jags STFU, you suck this year, accept it, Houston has suffered through it for years. Bieng little whiney b*tches doesn't make it any easier to live with. You can still root for the Los Angeles Jaguars in a couple of years.

Whats the Jacksonville mascot? A Jaguar you say, nope it's a tarp.......

You need to watch the replay before casting your stones, Dutch, all due respect. No way that was a punch, especially a punch with intentions behind it. If is was, I'm taking his lunch money tomorrow.

Default Re: D.Brown Getting Dirty

Honestly the punch looks weak, kind of like the punch you give a friend for whooping your ass in a video game. Dude had a good pick up, and duane was dissapointed in his effort but kind of giving the guy a punch like 'damnit man! but good play anyway'. Real PUNCHES go THROUGH someone. Duane never followed through with the punch, you can tell by the way he snaps his fist back up, kind of like a friendly judo chop. If he was angry his fist would have stayed through the players abdomen without snapping back.

Another anology would be karate. When you 1uped your opponent and have the final strike, they do a fake punch to signify that they have won. Furthermore if it was a real punch the guy wouldnt have gotten up. Folks in the NFL get prissy over shoves, what makes you guys think this was a real punch? If it was the guy wouldnt have been a good sport about it.

Session didn't really react like it was a punch. Session just hopped up and went on.

D Brown got into it with the guy who pushed him but that was edited out.

Default Re: D.Brown Getting Dirty

One of the comments mentioned that the "punch" was with his left hand. Brown is right handed.

What I saw was Brown getting up, a Jags defender grabbing at Brown's arm, and Brown doing the "get the ******* off of me" arm movement. Which looks like a punch when it connects with someone at your feet.

I can see the Jax guy clearly grabbing his left arm, but even if it was just a breakaway move from the guy holding his arm, the movement doesn't match the description. Easily could have been a personal foul, possibly an ejection if the refs were looking to issue one. It looks like an intentional jab to me.

Just watched the full play on NFL Replay, calling it a punch is pretty out of context.

Schaub gets tackled, fumbles, Duane Brown goes to make the tackle on the return, makes the tackle, is getting up and then #69 reaches to pull him up by his left arm, when Duane pulls away he comes down on Session.

I don't see any intent on a punch, nobody on the Jags team was any bit angry in the heat of the moment, there were 2 refs in the vicinity with no flag thrown or any separation or anything. I would think if Duane had an intent to punch Session he wouldn't have turned around so quick to get at #69.

It's clear that Duane was already on his way to his feet when #69 came over and was pulling him up, he shrugged him off and accidentally made contact with Sessions.

Whole thing is getting overblown

The video looks worse than it actually is. The best telling sign is that Session didn't retaliate at all! Who would get punched in the gut, and just get back up as if nothing happened?
