    The face of the franchise!! Andre Johnson! Take it to the bank!!

    How cool was it to see him, someone usually so quiet and soft spoken, get riled up and tell the little possum squallor trick Finnegan what was what AND back that up on the field! That got me excited Sunday! Finnegan tried to rattle the Big Dog's cage one too many times!

    Love AJ!!!!

    Gotta love Dre slamming Finnegan to the ground just before "The Brawl"
    Keep your eye to the far left of the screen, just after the play ends.
    Dre has Finnegan blocked, and when the play is over, he slams him down to
    the ground. Dre got da FIYAAAAHHH!!

    yeah, I saw that on NFL Replay last night (hard to miss since they circled it in yellow). AJ got tired of that punkass talking trash, and not only schooled him (again!), but backed it up with action. More power to him. It sends a message to the Titans, as well as his fellow Texans.

    Unfortunately, it looked like AJ had Finnegan's facemask for about 5 seconds yanking him all over with it. I hope that doesn't result in anything and certainly nothing more than a fine - which no offense he can afford and we don't have to pay (well anymore than we already did).

    It did look like a fist full of facemask. Maybe it was the momentum of both players and the angle of the camera, but the highlight sure looked like AJ was throwing that punk to the ground by his mask. Hopefully nothing substantial comes from the NFL looking at it again.

    I still like the attitude, though. :wild:

    Loved that part. I just wish he had used the facemask to drag the little punk into the pile where the cameras couldn't see him.

    I believe there is one in the Brawl thread. You may have to go back a few pages.

    Agreed. He can pay it but I'd chip in a couple of bucks to help. :P

    Maybe this is where the NFL will see Dre's character previous to this and just slap his wrist as opposed to someone who is always causing problems.
