Jags prepare for Finnegan

Much has been made this week about the Andre Johnson-Cortland Finnegan fight from last Sunday – the actual bout itself (Johnson won on points), the fairly-benign punishment of $25,000 apiece in fines and no suspensions, and the fact Johnson was mic’d up during the game. But we haven’t head much about what the Titans think about Finnegan – known around the league as an instigator and a dirty player.

Apparently, Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher is OK with Finnegan’s antics.

"I have no issues with how Cortland played in the game on Sunday," Fisher said, via the Florida Times Union. "Cortland Finnegan did not throw a punch, so I have no issues with that. Cortland Finnegan was hit in the face; helmet knocked off, and pushed from behind the play before. So I have no issues with how Cortland responded.

"I have issues with the incident, I think it's bad for football, I think it's bad for the league, and I think it sets a bad example, but I don't have any issues with what Cortland did in the game and how he played."

This week, Finnegan and the Titans will face the Jaguars. Which means Jacksonville will be on the lookout for what many consider to be a “dirty” Tennessee squad. And unlike Steelers WR Hines Ward, who garners respect because he’s physical while not making a mockery of himself during the game, Finnegan has developed a not-so-nice reputation.

"He's chippy, man," Jaguars WR Mike Thomas said. "He is what he is; he's Cortland Finnegan. He just tries whatever he can do to get an edge on you. Get you frustrated. Talk some noise. After the whistle he might try to get a little physical."

But Finnegan has a weakness. As Johnson showed, he’s susceptible to the uppercut. If you can land that on him, it might make for an early night.
