(Yahoo)   Article confirms two widely suspected beliefs from the 2012 NFL season: There was a reason the Rams were able to inexplicably out-play the 49er's, and Cortland Finnegan is a giant douche   ( divider line

my_cats_breath_smells_like_cat_food: And yeah...Finnegan knows exactly what he does, and he is good at it. He knows how to push buttons and get a (oftentimes illegal) reaction out of teh WR's he is up against. And that is in addition to what you noted, which is that he knows the nuances of the rules applicable to his position, and has the alertness/presence-of-mind to know when he can take advantage of them. It isn't gaming the system is a legit strategy/skillset...but dammit if it isn't annoying and makes everyone NOT on his team (or their fans) hate his guts.

I'm a Titans fan, and I was watching that game when the fight went down. And as a fan, watching the best defensive back on my team getting pummelled by the best WR in the division, I could only sit back and think "Well, it's not like he didn't have that ass-beating coming".

Just because a guy plays for your team, doesn't mean you always have to defend him.

Formally known as "Jon Gruden's path to the Super Bowl"
Currently known as the "hire Tim Tebow for OTAs and dump him after pre-season" strategy.
This is nothing new.

If you think the Texans aren't talking to Ed Reed and the Bengals aren't speaking with James Harrison, then you are crazy.

AdamK: so basically the rams did what every team in the history of ever does? hell studying game film made peyton manning's career

Pretty much.  It is a little odd to me that the Ram's were the only ones able to figure it out though.

scottydoesntknow: Of course he is. He's the only person in the NFL who actually caused Andre Johnson to snap and utterly beat his ass into the ground.

This is the only thing I think about when I hear Cortland Finnegan.
