    I'm surprised he wasn't slapped with a $1,000,000 fine for the "late" hit on Manning.

    The fine was not associated with the Manning hit because the NFL did not want it to seem as they were protecting the "untouchable Golden Boy."

    I'm all for what the new Commisioner and the league is doing to clean up the NFL, but I do have a problem with the inconsistency of the fines being levied.

    The guy who hit Schaub in SD got a $15K fine for flagrantly giving a concussion and knocking a QB out of a game, while TJ is assessed $5k for a borderline late hit on a receiver.

    IMO, either the Schaub assassin should have been fined more, or TJ should have been fined less.

    I agree. Since the 2000 election Texans everywhere have been unfairly discriminated against. It is part of a vast Oklahoman/Lousianian/Fresnonian conspiracy.

    Not that I condone it, but TJ's bang for the buck was very poor. :)

    we need more players who arent afraid to hurt someone and hit the snot out of other guys. the way they were throwing the ball around up 30 points, I think we should have taken a shot at Manning and sent a message. Make them pay for their greed.

    Most of his Personal fouls are back lash from the Trent Green thing. He is a "monster" to the refs and the masses and they treat him like so.
