St. Louis Rams have embraced the ‘smack cam’ social media trend (Video)

Cortland-Finnegan-Chris-Long-smack-camFor those of you who haven’t seen it, “smack cam” is one of the latest — and most violent — trends that is sweeping the world of social media. Basically, smack cam consists of people whacking their friends in the face with any item that is readily accessible and posting a short video of it on Vine. The St. Louis Rams are fully on board with it.

Defensive end Chris Long was smacked in the face with a plate of whipped cream by cornerback Cortland Finnegan during a recent interview with NFL Network. According to Long, Finnegan is the one who started the war. But the video you see above may have been payback for this:

Andre Johnson Mic’d Up During Cortland Finnegan Brawl (Video)

Is this mic’d up stuff fun or what?  If you enjoy listening to what goes on inside the trenches on a normal day in the NFL, you’ll love getting a glimpse into the action that leads up to the best brawl we’ve seen all year.  Read and React tracked down the Sound FX video of Andre Johnson mic’d up on Sunday leading up to his throw down with Cortland Finnegan.  It’s definitely entertaining stuff and gives us the feeling that Finnegan is even more of a douche than we originally thought.  Check it out:

Both guys were obviously taking a fair amount of shots, but you can tell Johnson is a patient guy who just lost it.  Finnegan has a reputation for doing this type of thing, as evidenced by his trying to pump up the Texans’ crowd when he was heading to the locker room after being thrown out.  I’m glad he got up and clapped after Andre banged him out.  Johnson deserved the applause.

Cortland Finnegan and Andre Johnson Ejected After Fight (Video)

The Houston Texans put a good old fashioned whooping on the Tennessee Titans in Houston on Sunday, but that won’t be the biggest story of the day.  Cortland Finnegan and Andre Johnson were both ejected from the game following a brawl unlike any other we’ve seen this year in the NFL.  For a few seconds it looked like a UFC fight.  Finnegan is known for being a dirty player — something he’s proud of — and apparently managed to get under Johnson’s skin to the point where both players’ helmets ended up flying and punches were exchanged.  Johnson definitely got the best of Finnegan.  Check out the Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan fight video, courtesy of YouTube user poontogen:

Now, the question becomes what will the punishment be. Roger Goodell is certainly not going to appreciate this incident, and hefty fines are a guarantee. Suspensions aren’t out of the question, either. It’s getting down to the wire in fantasy leagues, and I’d definitely be worried if I had Johnson on my team and was fighting for a playoff spot.  Thanks to Twitter users JenKay1988 and onealty for the pics.
