Fokou says Chargers tried to break his arm


Titans linebacker Moise Fokou has a pretty good excuse for an unnecessary roughness penalty he drew in the first quarter of Sunday’s win over the Chargers.

Fokou claims that, basically, the Chargers tried to Fokoup his arm.

They were trying to put my arm in a blender,” Fokou said, via Terry McCormick of  “That’s what they were trying to do.  It was kind of like a fight or flight kind of feeling, just mano-a-mano, survival of the fittest.  I felt that my arm was in a compromising position and when I got up my first instinct was to kind of defend myself, right, wrong or indifferent.  That’s just how I felt.”

Fokou said he’ll appeal if he’s fined, as he should.  The “All-22” film from the game shows Chargers guard Jeromy Clary clutch Fokou’s arm and then fall to the ground while holding it, in what looked like clumsy pro wrestling move.  Only after that does Fokou take a shot at Clary.

If anything, Clary should be fined for blatantly trying to injure Fokou.

    Chargers should trade R. Mathews for B. Tate

    I sense an arm lawsuit…

    Did they throw a slice of pizza on the floor of his car? Otherwise, I can’t believe it…..

    I could see that happening but as a person getting paid really well you should see this happening and avoid it. After all you are a professional!

    The Chargers did this!?! You mean the same Chargers team that has a QB who throws more temper tantrums than TDs?!?

    Cant be true!

    Props for the ‘Fokoup’ bit

    Everybody knows that Ndamakong Suh is the only player that plays dirty, or so the media would have you believe.

    “Fokoup” his arm……well-played Florio!!!

  9. realestwhiteboy says: Sep 25, 2013 9:36 PM

    Wow. This should be a suspension. Player safety first.

    You know the Fisher era has truly ended in Tennessee when a Titans player is calling out another team for trying to inflict serious injury.

  11. sharkt says: Sep 25, 2013 9:40 PM

    No doubt Suh was somehow an accomplice. Speaking of, has Florio acknowledged that Winston has no issue with Suh’s “vicious blow” to his head that got Florio all hot and bothered?

    That must have been after the Titans D tried to rip off Ryan Mathews helmet off his head when he was already tackled on the ground on his first or second carry of the game. So the Titans can dish it out can’t take it huh?

  13. juvegol says: Sep 25, 2013 9:55 PM

    Kinda like how the Titans broke Shawne Merrimans knee??

  14. ahs2 says: Sep 25, 2013 9:55 PM

    It was Suh’s fault!

  15. radrntn says: Sep 25, 2013 10:02 PM

    Fokoup. i see what you did there.

  18. mydogsnameisvick says: Sep 25, 2013 10:53 PM

    Chargers will find a way to lose 10 games this year.

  19. chargersdiehard says: Sep 25, 2013 11:11 PM

    We were playing with a makeshift o line. Can you blame clary for trying to even the playing field?

  20. aintthenazz says: Sep 26, 2013 12:50 AM

    Yet when Suh makes similar statements, no one believes it.

  21. hyzers says: Sep 26, 2013 1:29 AM

    Dirtier than anything Suh’s ever done.

  22. icdogg says: Sep 26, 2013 1:32 AM

    I think that every Titans fan should own a Fokou jersey. That would be a sight to see on game day.

  23. dodohead418 says: Sep 26, 2013 1:34 AM

    Wished we had the play in question.

  24. ambitoos says: Sep 26, 2013 4:00 AM

    Damn Chargers never do anything right.

  25. hess97 says: Sep 26, 2013 5:44 AM

  26. unrulyondamic says: Sep 26, 2013 7:44 AM

    You can’t outrun the “long arm of the law”

  27. joetoronto says: Sep 26, 2013 7:56 AM

    Usually, teams that cheat a lot win Super bowls.

    Not the Chargers.

  28. dannymac17 says: Sep 26, 2013 1:44 PM

    Throws more temper tantrums than TDs?

    Hes thrown 9 temper tantrums this season?

  29. finitesd says: Sep 28, 2013 12:44 AM

    Watch the replay. This dude had Clary by the facemask. Clary wasn’t playing dirty, he was trying not to be flung to the ground by his facemask. WATCH THE REPLAY!!
