Titans CB: Get popcorn for rematch with Johnson

continued from page 1

Houston coach Gary Kubiak said as a coach he appreciates watching great players working so hard to win a game. Kubiak doesn’t know what happened last time.

“I don’t think you ever know personally exactly what’s going on out there between two guys, but they always play hard and they’re always getting after each other and they challenge each other and they both rise to the challenge. That’s what makes them both great players,” Kubiak said.

Finnegan insists nothing will happen this time around beyond just football.

“Retaliation is for the birds,” Finnegan said.

Johnson says that wasn’t him that day. He isn’t proud of what he did and wants to just move past that fight.

“It’s over with, and there’s nothing I can do about it, ” Johnson said.

Texans running back Arian Foster expects the men to talk back and forth but almost guaranteed no repeat brawl.

“That’s a big fine they give you,” Foster said. “I know I ain’t going to fight anybody, I can promise you that.”
