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

Green Bay Packers v Houston Texans Getty Images

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.

    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.

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

    Beautiful use of alliteration in the title.

    Perfect fit for the Lions………………

    Danny delivered a “piledriver” while flat on his back. Like Rocky.

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

    It’s for a good cause.

    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.

    Later on he was spotted picking a peck of pickled peppers.

    Every time I see his name written, I think it’s a typo. The NFL should consider fining people who spell their name incorrectly.

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

    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

  12. thegreatgabbert says: Oct 17, 2012 5:59 PM

    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……

    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.

  14. thegreatgabbert says: Oct 17, 2012 6:02 PM

    In issuing the penalty, the league took into consideration that at least he didn’t Punch the Packer in his Package. Which has been known to happen in a Pile.

    Texans are the dirtiest team in the NFL

  16. scrapingthefloorioforstorios says: Oct 17, 2012 6:06 PM

    he’s a former bear, so no surprise he did it. that’s $5000 a punch!

  17. gaykegayden says: Oct 17, 2012 6:07 PM

    I hope they fine Scott Robinson for once having the worst blog in the history of the Houston Chronicle

  18. neer music says: Oct 17, 2012 6:12 PM

    something about the packers just makes you wanna punch em’.

  19. daaabears says: Oct 17, 2012 6:13 PM

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

  20. droop says: Oct 17, 2012 6:16 PM

    Well thank God there are no such thing as a 50 yard penalty. $50,000, anybody?

  21. sevensgottago says: Oct 17, 2012 6:27 PM

    ‘Giving him the business..’
    There’s a blast from the past!

  22. larryboodry says: Oct 17, 2012 6:29 PM

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

  23. thepvyharvin says: Oct 17, 2012 6:42 PM

    They should award 15k for pile punching pouty Packer pinheads,,,

  24. jonny42671 says: Oct 17, 2012 6:48 PM

    Oh no, did the Packers talk about boycotting on the plane ride home?

  25. simpleghost says: Oct 17, 2012 6:50 PM

    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.

  26. purpleguy says: Oct 17, 2012 7:06 PM

    There should be no fine for purposely punching a pile of pickled Packers players.

  27. philo13181 says: Oct 17, 2012 7:13 PM

    Texans are a dirty team

  28. barroomhero80 says: Oct 17, 2012 7:15 PM

    Shoulda hit em twice

    If I had 350 lbs laying on top of my knee bent in half about to snap I be trying to punch my way out to.

    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.

    Why wasn’t he tossed?

  34. beerbratscheese says: Oct 17, 2012 8:11 PM

    Go ahead, punch a Packer, but then you’ll get positively and precisely pummeled by that player.

  35. dd393 says: Oct 17, 2012 8:56 PM

    $10,000 for the punch. $5000 for being dimwitted enough to punch a helmet.

    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.

  37. tecmobowl34 says: Oct 17, 2012 10:13 PM

    I had a pile once. Sure wouldn’t want to be punched in it.

  38. thetokyosandblaster says: Oct 17, 2012 10:16 PM

    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…

    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.

  44. htown1035 says: Oct 18, 2012 8:23 AM

    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.

  46. dukemarc says: Oct 18, 2012 1:56 PM

    Alright, now where are the fines for Duane Brown and JJ Watt?

  47. 8to80texansblog says: Oct 18, 2012 4:57 PM

    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…

  48. johnalex819 says: Oct 18, 2012 10:11 PM

    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.
