Danieal Manning fined $15,000 for punching a Packer in a pile

Texans safety Danieal Manning was at the bottom of a pile during Sunday’s game against the Packers, and he didn’t enjoy having Packers offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse on top of him. So Manning started swinging.

That turned out to be costly for the Texans, as Manning picked up a personal foul penalty, and costly for Manning, who was fined $15,000 for punching Newhouse.

Manning said afterward that he was upset because Newhouse was lying on top of him and not getting up, but that he went over and apologized to Newhouse afterward.

I was hating on him at that moment,” Manning told the Houston Chronicle. “But it’s over. Things like that happen all the time in games.”

And when things like that happen, 15-yard penalties and $15,000 fines are the result.

  1. I hope the Texans also fine his stupid ass for keeping a Packer drive alive which led to a touchdown at the time of a tight ball game.

    Generally a very good player – stupid momentary lapse of reason.

  2. Can I donate $10 to the Daniel Manning Punch a Packer in a pile Foundation?

    It’s for a good cause.

  3. I don’t know, the way his knee was bent backwards I’d be trying get out of there too. Though hitting a guy twice your size clearly wasn’t very effective.

    I’m just glad it wasn’t Patrick Peterson. “Patrick Peterson Punching a Packer in a Pile.” Try saying that 5 times fast.
    ================

    Would have been even better if one of the Pouncey brothers played for the packers.

    Patrick Peterson Punching Packer Pouncey in a a Pile.

  5. Did anybody else see the same style of block that ended cushing’s seaason used on a packer LB by a texan OL? Where are all the texans fans that were crying about how that jet guy should be suspended?! I guess its ok when your team does it, huh???? Losers

  6. With any luck it’ll catch on and become a fad. Punch a Packer at a Party. Punch a Packer in the Post Office. Punch a Packer in your Pyjamas…….Punch a Packer Purely for Pleasure……

  7. I dont know why Danielle got so mad, he should be used to losing to us by now after all those years on the Bears.

  8. Penalties cost the Texans any chance of winning this game.
    Title could have read; “Player penalized per punching a Packer in a pile.”

  9. Always liked Manning with the Bears…Maybe some leftover animosity from the Bears-Packers rivalry?

    Post on here and let me know when you are going to try any of those. I want to be there to see the Packer`s reaction.

    Same deal as with Suh last year. Green Bay olinemen playing dirty with the hope that they get a reaction and a penalty against the opponent.
    ==============================
    simpleghost with a simple mind, the typical Lion’s fan! Suh is an idiot, and would never want to play for the Texans, he wants to stay on the dirtiest team in the NFL.

  12. He and dirty Jared Allen probably make out… they have so much in common.

    They’re cheap, they don’t have any relevance anymore unless it’s headlines showing how dumb they are, and neither of them would even make the practice squad for the Packers.

    Then again, only two or three Vikings would make the Packers squad.

    The Vikings are pathetic, and will end up at least 4 games behind the Packers. The best part? Jealous viking fans know its true…

  13. You know what the difference in that game was? It wasn’t talent, because both teams have talent. This was a very important “statement” game for both teams. The difference was experience. This was an early-season playoff atmosphere event and the Packers “have been there before.”..the Texans have not. It sounds like a cliche, but that’s the funny thing about cliche’s…..they’re true.

    If the guys on GB’s practice squad are so good that Jared Allen couldn’t make the cut, they should be starting.

  16. You guys are losers – everyone of you would do the same thing if you had a 300 pound lineman laying on you with your leg pinned behind you.

    And the hit on the Packer player was totally different than the hit on Cushing – he hit him shoulder pad to shoulder pad. It was unfortunate but not illegal.

    Yeah, except in this case it’s not true, especially since the Texans have been in the playoffs and won before.

    This was a case of a team that was totally prepared and a QB who played out of his mind and had one of, if not the best, games of his career.

  18. All of you people saying that the Texans are a dirty team didn’t watch the game obviously.

    Mannings knee was pinned and turned in a direction its probably not supposed to go. This was more a reaction to pain and a plea to get off of him than a malicious punch. Honestly, him punching an O lineman’s helmet probably caused his hand more harm than anything else.

    Plus do dirty players go and apologize afterwards? I never though Joe Mays was dirty. Richie Incognito on the other hand…

  19. I’m guessing nobody saw that the Newhouse had Manning’s knee in an awkward and painful place and the reason for the punching was to get him off fast before Manning hits IR.
