As pretty much everyone in the NFL knows, Steve Smith is not to be trifled with, and Aqib Talib went at the veteran Panthers wideout early on Monday Night Football.
Talib and Smith battled twice a year when the corner was with the Buccaneers and there’s a little bit of history there. So as soon as Smith pulled in his second catch of the night, and enthusiastically popped up to celebrate a first down, Talib went for a little extra after the whistle to keep him down:
Williams, who plays offensive tackle for the Redskins, claims umpire Roy Ellison called him a “fat a**” during the course of the game. Williams was livid in the postgame locker room, regerring to Ellion as a “garbage a** disrespectful mother f***.”
The league should have plenty of evidence to examine, as Washington guard Kory Lichtensteiger told members of the media Sunday that he was wearing a microphone during the game, and that Ellison’s comments would be audible on the recording.
This race is anyone’s game. Orlando’s victory over Philadelphia Cheap Braves Jerseys was not good for its tanking chances. The Knicks rested several players against Portland to ensure a road loss.
Who has the tougher schedule? The Magic have five games remaining against teams competing for playoff position. The Kings have two such games, the 76ers have five, and the Knicks have six and have reduced Carmelo Anthony’s minutes.
What’s at stake? Nothing but higher odds at landing a draft NFL Cheap Jerseys Nike pick. Philadelphia has the option to swap first-round picks with the Kings.
