    Concussion is all I know of. Since this isn't his first concussion, retirement has to be considered.

    He should have retired after his last one... and really he should know better... you are old, you have a history of concussions... don't try to block a really big guy by leading with your head.

    And with that said... the ***** who taunted him (his name escapes me)... should have been benched for the rest of the quarter. I can understand being upset about Green going for your legs... but you don't taunt a guy whose hurt and still down... and you don't taunt a guy after your defense just made a HUGE play.

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Trent Green rejoined his team after he sustained a concussion in Sunday's game against Houston and was taken to a hospital.

    Green was back in the locker room after the Dolphins' 22-19 loss, with a bandage behind his right ear. He was not made available to the media, but he was going to fly back to Miami with the team, coach Cam Cameron said.

    That idi0t that taunted him was #99 Travis Johnson. It was classless, and almost cost the Texans the game. It did cost them a TD, because it gave Miami a 1st down when they most likely would have had to punt. If there was a way that the Texans could legally fine him, I would hit him with the maximum.

    Thanks! I couldn't remember right off the top of my head... was a horrible play by him... was glad it looked like his position coach riped him a new one afterwards.

    give travis a break.. he was (rightfully) pissed about green's dangerous block that could've cost him HIS career.. im sure he didnt think green was seriously injured, just slow getting up so prob just said something like 'that'll ********** teach you to do that'... which i have no problem with him because i know i could easily do the same thing if i was him

    So you have no problem getting a 15 yard penalty after your defense just made a great play?

    I have no problem with him angry... yelling at him while he's on the ground is an easy flag for the refs... and from what I could see Greens block was low but legal.

    This is crazy. He mouthed off to a guy who took a cheap shot at him and he's the jerk? An open field block must be above the waist, no? He started to call him out on it when he realized Green wasn't getting up. At which time he promptly STFU and quickly jogged away. Nothing wrong with his actions. Now if he would have leaned over Green, spit on him and yelled "How's that concussion feel beotch?" Then I would have had an issue with his actions. That was not the case though.

    Yep, Travis could have blown out a knee, shoulder or broke a wrist/hand on that block. That taunting was heat of the moment. It's not like travis laid him out with a block & then stood over him sneering:cowboy1:

    I don't think an open field block needs to be above the waist but I could be wrong

    He didn't propmply jog away from anything... he got up, went right for Green, pointed and yelled for a good while.

    Not saying he's a jerk, but what he did was a penalty...

    What I REALLY disagree with though is on one of the post game shows they were talking about a fine or penalty on TJ for the taunting... which would be stupid IMO.

    Let's just all agree on the following:
    o no one wants to see anyone get a head injury
    o angry or not, taunting is a penalty. Ergo, if you taunt, you realize you are putting your TEAM at risk of penalty.

    And I will add:
    These guys are not emotional college kids. I expect a PROFESSIONAL to be able to control his emotions.

    I am not a pro, but I am a fanatic. I about LOST it when TJ got flagged for taunting. The coach was well heeled to rip TJ a much-deserved new one.

    TJ -- you got to keep it together, man. Channel it into something else.

    Go Texans.

    I agree with it. He damn near cost the Texans the game. I initially saw Green lying there not moving, and knew right away that he was hurt bad. When I couldn't see him moving, I thought he might have been paralyzed. Then I see TJ walk up, stand over him, and angrily point at him while yelling. I knew it was going to be a taunting call before the flag was thrown. It was an easy call.
