Jaguars accuse Texans of dirty tactics

Some of J. Hill's teammates accused Houston of playing dirty (US Presswire).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

In the week leading up to the Texans-Jaguars game, Jacksonville defensive tackle Terrance Knighton let us know how he feels about the Houston franchise.

"I hate Houston; I hate the Texans. That’s probably the team I hate most in the league. I don’t know, they have an arrogance about them I just can’t stand. We watched the bad game last year. I just got angry and I’m ready to go out there and get that bad taste out of my mouth."

Then, the Jaguars went out and got toasted by Houston. But maybe that’s not even the worst part for Knighton, and afterward, he told us exactly why he hates the Texans.

"I still don't like them, and I have no respect for them at all," he said, via the Houston Chronicle. "It was just the dirty stuff they were doing. I don't want to get into specifics; I just don't like them. … I'm not going to get into names or anything like that, but we play them again.”

This is the second time in two weeks that a Houston opponent has accused the Texans of dirty tactics. After the Titans lost 41-7 last week, they echoed some of the same remarks.

“They're some nasty guys," Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey said. "I was on the ground, and some guy stepped on my head. They're very dirty."

It is strange though. Like John McClain wrote in his story, “When the Texans wallowed in mediocrity for years, no one accused them of being a dirty team. Now that they're winning, they're being called cheap-shot artists.

Bwahahahaha this is funny TexanBob quoting Jerry Glanville when his team played the Steelers!!!! He was 2 and 2 against them in the regular season with a stellar overall coaching record of 63 and 73....Oh yea he lost to the Steelers the only time he faced them in the playoffs.....I would suggest a Bum Phillips quote next time at least he had some success!!!!!!

look at all the cry baby Jag fans. It is a sport played by men. Maybe you little girls who think contact is dirty need to start following women's chess.

The Cushing hit on Gabbert when Gabbert slid was not dirty. It was illegal and should have been flaged. All Cushing did wrong was not recognize the slide and instead went after Gabbert like normal. It is not dirty. It is a 15 yard penalty.

You people need to cut Cushing a break.  It's so easy to say a guy is dirty.  I suspect his actions are some of the lesser known side effects of being overtrained.

The jags are just being a bunch of little babys,watched the whole game and didn't see anything over the top,and yes we play them again which will be another beatdown.The titans who are they to whine the punk DB from last year kept provoking Andre until Andre kicked his a** and got him ejected.Bring it on kittens and little titans the Texans will smoke you both again.If anything the Texans have been flagged several times that took away touchdowns and big gains and the replays show the Texans did nothing wrong.When are the kittens moving to L.A.

Of course, that one player did just that the entire game - Cushing.

He plays like that every week. That is why we love him. Maybe you got lost on the way to the WNBA thread.
