    I like how they take the Travis Johnson part out of context (again) and make it seem like he was head hunting Green because he had said something to him in the parking lot.
    Then immeadiatly follow it up with Branch saying Harrison "isn't that type of player ... to go into a game and try to hurt someone"

    I love journalists.

    Guess Branch would have complimented Green for going at his knees.

    As usual the media has it bassakwards.

    I, for one, am glad that TJ is that "type of player". We need more like him!

    Go 'get em' TJ....:bat:

    Deion... We get that you are sticking up for your teammate, but; A) Harrison IS the dirtiest player in the league and B) Comparing TJ's situation is about as comparable as apples and oranges. Use a better argument like, "Harrison is not as dirty as Conrad Dobler was..."


    Asshat!!!

    John Runyan has always been one of the dirtiest players in the league.

    Yes, definitely Roy boy......and for someone that is pretty new to the league, keep your eye on Laron Landry.....very dirty player. He should have been fined a few times last year.

    I hate how that is worded. It should have been "Travis Johnson accidentally knocked out Trent Green last year when trying to tackle someone on a botched play. Trent tried to cut block Johnson blindly, and unfortunatley took a knee by a unaware Johnson trying to make a tackle. Now what happened after the play, was unacceptable".

    I might have worded it this way:

    Trent Green, the 36 year old, 14 year veteran knocked himself out while attempting a low block, aimed at Travis Johnson's knee. The hit could have caused irreparable damage to Johnson's knee, and in addition, caused Johnson to land awkwardly on the top of his head, barely escaping permanent neck injury. Not recognizing that Green had knocked himself out cold, Johnson was overheard saying "Mr. Green, that was very impolite and unnescessary" as Johnson continued towards the sideline without stopping...

    This is why you can't trust reporting on anything you didn't see yourself:

    1. Travis Johnson did not knock out Green with a legal hit. The nouns, actives and passives got all messed up. Here's my description from last year:

    2. If you watch the play in real time, Johnson does not stand over Green. He yells at him on his way to walking to the bench. You know, because uh, it's football, you get mad when someone puts a helmet on your knee and makes you do a somersault in the air and land on your head.

    3. Irony irony. If we are talking about dirty play like we normally mean it, it is Green who did the legal but arguably dirty block on purpose. He said he hit Johnson low intentionally because that was the only way he figured he could block a guy Johnson's size. By hitting him on the knee with his freaking helmet.

    I predicted that this was going to happen because most of the national media reports at the time were written in misleading, more sensationalist ways.

    When this play happened, I recall reading on the Notre Dame site I goto how misinformed they were about the whole inccident. because of the writers in the eras they live they did not see the actual game or the full speed play just the replay and TJ comments just after the game. I corrected the assumptions and misleading thoughts of the game with the help of your original article.

    Unfortunately, the national media are like a bunch of parrots once one says it ... it is truth no matter how much it is fiction. If you ask most fans of other teams what is the two main issues the texans have, I can bet it the O-line will be the answer a lot of the times (as well as runningback). Our line is no where near as bad as the media made it outbut that has never benn corrected by the so called journalist out there.
