“God Don’t Like Ugly” – Trent Green Accused Of Cheap Shot

Posted in Gridiron at 12:04 am by

A 57 yard field goal by Kris Brown as time expired lifted the Houston Texans to a 22-19 win over the floundering Fins Sunday, and a franchise-best 3-2 mark for Houston. After the game, however, Texans DT Travis Johnson was hardly in a celebratory mood after being upended by Miami QB’s Travis Green’s low block —- Green was injured in the collision and left Reliant Stadium on a stretcher. From the Miami Herald’s Jeff Darlington.

‘At 12:01, I had a lot of respect for Trent Green,” Johnson said. “At 12:20, I said [expletive] Trent Green. To hit my knee like that, that’s uncalled for. He’s like the scarecrow — he wants to get courage while I’m not 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. When I was up in the air, looking at the ceiling, I was wondering what was going to happen if I came down on my head. It was a dirty play. Football’s not like that. If you want to hit me, hit me in my shoulders, not my knees. That just showed what type of man he is.”

Green was not available for comment because of medical reasons, but his teammates were outspoken about their disdain for Johnson’s taunting after the play.

”He has to live with what he did. That’s pretty classless,” Dolphins tackle L.J. Shelton said. “I don’t want to elaborate on it, but everybody saw it. Hopefully, he’s a better person and he feels about it. But he has to live it.”

    Trent Green is a QB…QBs should avoid hard running DTs at all costs. Ted Ginn Jr being tackled for a loss is not worth a starting QBs loss of consciousness especially a QB with a history of concussions. Its hard to side against Travis Johnson’s disdain for Trent Green’s decision. A DE dives at a QB below the waist to get a sack and he is villified & fined. That hit on Johnson looked like it could have severely damaged him and Green’s resulting concussion was well deserved for his own stupidity. He should have known better than to sacrifice himself on such a meaningless endeavor. Its better his career ends from it rather than Johnson’s! I agree with Travis’ rant “BLEEP Trent Green”
