    So can anyone tell me why this fight broke out? I just missed it, and from what I heard it was just playing tough that eventually broke out. Pretty sweet that Jackson left with a bloody lip though!

    Jackson stiff armed Pollard on the previous run and Pollard didnt like it.

    Pollard was playing like a punk for a stretch.

    Lucky that Jackson punched back otherwise it would've cost us 15. I was surprised they didn't eject Pollard.

    Stephan Jackson's helmet came off several times during the game. I this his big fancy hair causes the helmet to slip.

    Notice Hoculi in the background. He could have body slammed both of them if he wanted.

    I never actually saw Pollard throw a punch (like I saw Jackson CLEARLY do). If an open OR closed fist punch is thrown, it's supposed to be AUTO-ejection.

    I don't know how much the stiffarm had to do with it. Pollard recovered pretty well, & came back to make the tackle that Steven is referring to in his presser. They were jawing with each other after that.

    I think it was two plays after that, Pollard went in on a blitz, where Jackson was picking up the blitz. There was a little extra push by Jackson, & retalliation by Pollard which led to ripping the helmet off Jackson.

    They got tied up, then went to the ground. When they went to the ground, I believe it was Pollards helmet landing on Jackson's mouth that caused the bloody lip.

    I'll have to watch it again but what I remebered is Pollard and Jackson engaged and Pollard's right arm pulled off Jackson's helmet as he swung it to the left. Then Jackson took a swing at Pollard's helmet.

    Swinging a fist at a guy in a helmet makes soooo much sense.

    "Playing like a punk" isn't this team criticized for being soft?

    Does stupid and out of control lead to 2 more wins? Our O line acting like punks sounds good to me. Didn't people here want benson and larry johnson? Doesn't jackson have a few lbs on pollard anyway?

    people ask why did kc cut pollard?
    things like today is why! i love his attitude and his fire but just because a really really good back got the better of him on one play is not a reason to go all kimbo slice on the football field

    Not picking a fight but did he get caught up in the intensity that this team lacks? People want a coach with intensity.

    I don't know and I would have to see a replay of what happened.
    I was pissed at first about Pollard because I thought it was all on him,but it was offsetting so...

    now that I think about it .. I wish some of our Offense would take heed and show some "controlled aggression"


    it is kinda funny looking at the defense and the offense .. with players like Cushing and Pollard there and players on offense like ...hell the whole offensive line ..two different philosophies

    What if chris meyers and the rest of the O-line had his fire? Would everyone have a problem then. What if his fire is what this entire team lacks in the 4th qtr. No problems with him getting after it. He is everything this team lacks.

    like i said i like the show of emotion.
    but it just seemed like he was embarrassed and was trying to make up for it
    if everyone had just a little bernard in them this team would be alot better
