    Travis Johnson. Was he right or wrong?

    The block Trent made was bad but Travis was wrong for taunting him while he was unconscious.

    The taunting wrong, the point is very correct. You can end a career with a chop like that..

    I know that the block like that can end a career..... but....
    the pooh he said after the game about Green and the situation, was just indignant.

    I am surprised he was still talking after getting carted off.

    The guy that Green was trying to block taunted green while he was laying on the ground. Then basically called him cheap for trying to take out his knees. Basicaly an idiot.

    At the PC, he basically called Green a coward and basically said that he deserved what he got.

    Johnson sounded anything but apologetic after the game when he first met with the media.

    "At 12:01, I had a lot of respect for Trent Green," Johnson said. "At 12:20, I said (blank) Trent Green. To hit my knee like that, that's uncalled for."

    Later, Johnson changed his tune and this time apologized for what he had said.

    "We D-linemen, when you have someone going at your knees, it's kind of tough," he said.

    Re: Travis Johnson. Was he right or wrong?

    More quotes....

    http://canadianpress.google.com/article/ALeqM5gUwR3KlKxPe4_RtLIpt2LANYm-eQ
    Texans defensive tackle Travis Johnson hit Green in the head with his knee before Ginn was tackled by Anthony Weaver. After the play ended, Johnson stood over Green and taunted him, drawing a 15-yard penalty.

    Johnson apologized to Houston coach Gary Kubiak during the game for the penalty. But Johnson was furious later, accusing Green of blocking him at the knees on purpose.

    "The bottom line is, it was a malicious hit. It was uncalled for," Johnson said. "He's like the scarecrow. He wants to get courage while I wasn't looking, and hit me in my knee instead of trying to hit me in my head. God don't like ugly, you know what I mean?

    "My knee ain't never hurt like it hurt today," Johnson said. "If you want to hit me, hit me in my head, hit me in my chest, don't hit me in my knee. I'm trying to eat just like everybody else. So, to hit me like that, that showed me what type of man he was."

    The Dolphins ripped Johnson after the game...........

    If I remember right, he did get flagged for the taunting.
