NFL investigating Landry spittle, pregame scuffle

In the wake of Michael Vick and the Eagles dropping some record-breaking offense in Washington last night, some alleged details emerged that didn't paint some Redskins defenders in a flattering light. Namely that LaRon Landry and DeAngelo Hall taunted DeSean Jackson about the concussion he suffered a few weeks ago, and that Landry spat on Philly center Mike McGlynn several times.

Naturally, the NFL is investigating -- a spokesman told the Philadelphia Daily News that they were looking into both the alleged spittle and the pregame skirmish between players (which occurred because of the alleged taunts directed at Jackson).

This is the second week in a row that the NFL's had to investigate an incident of spitting during a game. Last week Channing Crowder and La'Ron McClain got into a nasty little war of words after the Dolphins-Ravens game, although the NFL concluded that there wasn't enough evidence to warrant punishing McClain, despite some video that seemed to indicate otherwise.

Landry's denied that he spit on McGlynn (the two incidents in question were on an extra point to put the Eagles up 21-0 and then again with four minutes remaining in the game), claiming that the proof he didn't is positional, as there'd be no reason for him to line up in the A-gap at any point during the game.

"This is my answer: When would I ever be in touch with the center? I never blitz the 'A' gap." Landry said, according to the Washington Post."Extra points? Still, when would I ever be in the 'A' gap? Extra points I'm on the end. With that said, that's your answer."

Hall also, according to the Post, denied taunting Jackson before the game and Landry "downplayed" it.

Given a lack of video evidence (that we know of so far anyway) on Landry spitting, it seems like a long shot that he'll be punished by the NFL, given that McClain received no punishment the week before.

As for the taunting, though, that might be more serious of an offense given the way in which the NFL has handled concussions this year. The notion of one player threatening another one with physical harm and/or making light of what is a very serious injury probably won't go over well with the league office.

Best Payback is a Ass whipping they gave them

Classless dudes who spit on people, have no idea how immature and ridiculous that really is.    And to taunt and injured player, when your like one play away from being in the same boat or worse, shows a general lack of class, and forethought....

So, with that said, the best way to deal with it, other than fighting is to go put a basketball score on them, and torch those responsible directly.   Landry should do way more defending and covering than spitting and chasing.   Jackson should have put advertising on his shoe bottoms, for Landry and the Defense to see while they chased him, unsucessfully, all over the field. 

In Short, Play, and in some cases, lose, with Dignity.   I am sure Landry's fam is real happy to, 1. , watch him get toasted, and 2., hear he is a punk for spitting on people....

He got what he deserved.....so nice.

I wish I could take credit for this.  But, I actually read it on another website.

  I don't think Landry spit on any Eagles Monday nighht.  In order to spit on someone, you have to be close to them.  Landry wasn't within 5 yards of any Eagle all game.

Oops, the Eagles just scored again!!!!

 They ran their mouth before the game, And DeSean Jackson promptly burned them on the first play of the game for 88 yards.
I guess they will STFU from this point on?  Probably not.  Same goes for any sport...you can take the player out of the hood, but you
cant take the hood out of the player. And just like Tom Jackson said on NFL Countdown...if someone spits on me, I am gonna do anything I can to pay them back.
