So I was watching the Atlanta Falcons and Washington Redskins game, when a kick down drag out fight got going – it was totally smack!!
First the good (or bad news) – Game score: Falcons 31 – Redskins 17
So, the whole fight/scuffle thing started when Falcons quarterback was running for a first down and had just stepped out of bounds when LaRon Landry hit him in the back late in the second quarter.
Yellow flags flew like a windy New England fall day, Redskin’s DeAngelo Hall jumped into the middle of things and was entirely surrounded by Atlanta players and coach Mike Smith. Hall appeared to be pulled away before any punches were thrown.
To me, it looks like Hall came over to the sideline, mixed it up a bit and then got grabbed by the Falcons coach with the shaved head. The scuffle got a little bigger and Smith, who had been screaming at officials about Landry’s foul, got in the middle and started exchanging words with Hall.
Blowhard, douchebag, yahoo, punk, or a loudmouth; take your pick on the word you’d like to use to describe DeAngelo Hall. But Mike Smith should be above crap like this – right? A head coach shouldn’t be mixing it up with opponents unless an opponent directly mixes it up with him. It’s not wrong, per se, but it’s also not becoming.
“Through the whole time, I’m trying to get guys hands off of me. Later on Coach Smith – Mike – came over, grabbed me, talked [trash to me, saying hed kick my [butt]… I definitely stay in Atlanta in the offseason, so Mike Smith want to see me, he can find me.”, said Hall.
Later, Hall said, “Our quarterback was hit late and there was a skirmish over there. All I was trying to do was restore order to the sideline and did not want to get into a situation where any of our guys were injured. That was my view of it. Again, it happened very, very quickly.”
So, I guess jumping into the middle of a fight and yelling and the other guys will get order restored. Yeah, right…
