Denver Broncos: The best of Aqib Talib
Talib Doesn’t Hold Back on Harry Douglas
Broncos Country should remember this one well, even if it’s not an exact football highlight.
In Week 14 of the 2016 NFL season, the Broncos would lose a heartbreaker to the Tennessee Titans, 13-10. This game was pretty much the end of the Broncos’ hopes to return to the playoffs following the retirement of Peyton Manning.
However, the score isn’t the most memorable thing about this game. What fans will remember about this game was the cheap shot Chris Harris Jr. took from Titans’ wideout Harry Douglas, who aimed low and chop blocked the back of Harris’ knees.
Considering CHJ’s prior ACL tear, this was a terrifying moment for himself, his family, fans, and teammates. Fortunately, he was alright.
Talib didn’t hold back, going after Douglas in the game and throwing punches, although he was eventually restrained by officials.
The most epic part of Talib’s retaliation was his presser following the game.
“It was a dirty play by a sorry player. He don’t come to the game, don’t catch no passes” Talib told the media. “He come to the game and chop guys from the back. He’s got the same agent as me, so when I see his a** in Atlanta, I’m going to beat his a**”.
