I am still pissed about the game, but this is the one play that gives me some joy. I know it is mean that I am getting joy about hurting another player, but DJ Fluker just choke slammed the crap out of that Raiders player.
Is that really a penalty? I never knew if it was and it is the first time that I have seen someone body slam a player like that. Didn’t Ryan Mathews do this to a Raiders player also a couple of seasons ago?
When a defender leaves their feet, they are going to get dropped down hard. I know I have done it before. It happens. Fluker is just a huge dude and that drop down to the ground is a long, long way.
If I can get any joy in the game, it is the fact that DJ Fluker is out there playing the game like a man and is beating up Raiders.
