Aqib Talib, Chris Harris rip Harry Douglas for ‘dirty’ hit
Aqib Talib and Chris Harris had harsh words for Harry Douglas after the Denver Broncos lost to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
Douglas went low on a block on Harris late in the first half of the game that had the Denver CB on the ground. On the very next play, Harris’ Broncos teammate Talib got into it with the Tennessee receiver, sparking a brawl (here’s video).
Following the game, both Harris and Talib called Douglas’ block “dirty.” Harris said Douglas should be fined.

Talib called Douglas a “sorry” player.
“It was a dirty play by a sorry player..He tried to do something dirty so that’s why I’m going to beat his a–,” Talib said via The Denver Post’s Cameron Wolfe.
And he threatened to beat up Douglas:

The Broncos may have had some sour grapes over the 13-10 loss, but they certainly have a legitimate gripe in this case. Douglas went low on the block, which is always murky territory.
