Peter King breaks down the Finnegan-Johnson fight (while completely missing the play before it that lead to the whole reaction by Finnegan, but whatever) and speculates that both players will be suspended for a game. If I'm Roger Goodell, I make them play every snap in the next game, but they have to do it while wearing a dunce cap, jean shorts, clown shoes and a Tap-Out t-shirt, because if they're both going to act like jack-offs, they might as well dress like one to.
The Titans had every reason in the world to galvanize over the messes that have happened over the past week, but instead they tucked their tail between their legs and scampered away. That's easily the most damning indictment against Fisher so far... even worse than the winning percentage and lack of playoff wins over the past 7 wins.
Mike Heimerdinger is set to begin chemotherapy today. Right now there's no timetable for him to return to the team in even a limited capacity; he and his doctors will just have to see how the therapy progresses before deciding anything like that. Here's to hoping that Dinger is healthy and happy again quickly, and if he's as hard on that cancer as he has been on some of his wide receivers, he'll be back to 100% in no time!
Chris Johnson got completely out played by Arian Foster yesterday, but the bigger disparity was between the Titans' offensive line and the Texans' group when it came to run blocking: one was high-school level and the other was dominant.
Dirk Hoag at Predator's blog On The Forecheck points out that right now, there isn't a high-level team in Nashville that knows how to play offense.
Jeff Fisher was pretty upset about the fact that a horse-collar tackle penalty was called on Griffin when there was no tackle. I was pretty upset that he didn't throw the challenge flag on the Schaub sack that was probably a safety.
Congratulations to Glover Quin for getting his first three interceptions in the NFL. You may now go back to completely sucking.
Just putting this link up in case you want to remind anyone else that Andre Johnson may be quiet, but he's still a jackass with a history of fighting.
