Andre Johnson Fights So He Can Feel

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is one of the NFL’s more pleasant fellows, so it stands to reason that Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan really pissed him off in their matchup on Sunday. Neither guy would fess up on how it all got started, but once it did, it was rather awesome.

Finnegan pushed up Johnson’s facemask, and the Texans’ wideout responded by aggressively ripping Finnegan’s helmet off by the facemask.

Johnson threw at least two punches to Finnegan’s head and neck before the cornerback tore off the receiver’s helmet in retaliation. Teammates and officials intervened, preventing both teams from turning the fisticuffs into a full-fledged melee.

Johnson was tossed right away, and then Finnegan was soon after. Considering Herr Goodell’s swift brand of justice, it’s almost a forgone conclusion that Johnson will have to sit out Houston’s Thursday night game against Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Tennessee, meanwhile, might be without their 2008 Pro Bowler much longer, considering that he nearly turned an NFL game into an episode of “Jersey Shore.” All I could say to Roger Goodell is that, sir, nobody is starting Cortland Finnegan on his fantasy team… And honestly, the little sissy that turtled after acting like a tough guy all game is really the guy that should be suspended more.

Video of the skirmish is on the next page of this post.
