    Titans center Rob Turner was fined by the NFL for his peel-back block on Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt last Sunday, and while he doesn’t like it, he understands.

    What was a legal block a year ago is now illegal.

    “I’ve been taught to cut on screen (plays) ever since I was a kid,” Turner said. “It was a rule change this year and it was something I didn’t think about, I just reacted.”

    Turner declined to reveal the total of the fine except to say “it wasn’t exorbitant.” He said he doesn’t think he’s a dirty player.

    “I am a hard-nosed guy and that gets misconstrued sometimes,” Turner said. “I know J.J. was saying all sorts of stuff to the media down there about him (telling me he has) a family to feed and stuff like that, but all that wasn’t true and he’s full of it for saying it. That was a lie about him talking to me.”

    Watt, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, had two sacks against the Titans. He unloaded on Turner after the game and said the peel-back block was “absolutely” dirty.

    “I’m not trying to get my knee blown out. That’s why there’s a rule in place,” Watt said. “And it was clearly blatant.”

    Turner was flagged for a personal foul.

    “Whether you call it an apology or whether you call it a professional courtesy, I was trying to say, ‘Hey I wasn’t going after you like that, and you can see that on film,’ ” Turner said. “And it bothered me he made a big stink about it.

    “For the record, he wouldn’t even look at me, and I don’t have a problem if you put that in print. In fact, I’d encourage you to put that in print and he’s full of it by saying that.”

    Get em Rob! He hasn't played very well, but I love that he just publicly sh*t on JJ Watt! Watt's reaction after the game was way over the top and ridiculous. F*ck him.

    Turner isnt all that bad. People see 3 plays and make up their mind off nothing. Im glad he beat out Velasco cause thats a guy with nothing going for him.

    Turner can hold it down til Schwenke is ready.

    Watt, Cushing Foster... they are all a big bunch of babies. They have bought into the hype and think they are the greatest ever. Nothing would make me happier than to see them fall flat this season and watch the City of Houston commit suicide for buying into this crap. A bunch of sissy babby whinners.
