Aqib Talib on Michael Crabtree scuffle: It's unfortunate

"Where Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree got into it and it escalated, I think they have a little bit of history with the chain snatching from years back". He came out here on his extra stuff - one thing led to another, man. He made it clear getting tossed is "unacceptable", but he also supported Talib for defending his teammate, Chris Harris, who claimed Crabtree sucker-punched him in his gut the play before the fight ensued.

Talib and the Broncos will face the Miami Dolphins in Week 13, while Crabtree's Raiders will square off with the New York Giants. Sunday was the first time they have played since because Crabtree missed the Week 4 matchup in 2017 with an injury. The first half, that was him.

"I don't like it and it's unacceptable", he said.

"There was. I guess the second half of it definitely could have been defused", Talib said.

Harris continued, per Troy Renck: "He didn't come to play football".

White House backs Roy Moore in all but name
Ms Corfman originally told the Washington Post how she was approached by Mr Moore outside a courthouse in Etowah County in 1979. The Republican National Committee also ended its joint fundraising agreement with Moore.


"I'll say this, I'm not sure how it all started".

Talib pulled off Crabtree's helmet and the two threw punches as they were separated by their teammates. Talib was suspended for one game in the 2015 season for poking then-Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen in the eye. And when those things start, guys, it's a fine line between once it starts, not defending yourself. I told our guys I don't want it, but once it happens, how does a guy not defend himself?

The altercation came just three minutes into the second meeting of the season between the two bitter AFC West rivals. "If there's any chance you can get out of it, you should, for the betterment of the football team".

"I hope the league sees basically how it started and sees I didn't come out there to fight and wrestle with him. I wouldn't even want to but because I knew my daughter would see the footage, I would have to do it".
