Was Eric Fisher's hit on JJ Watt dirty?

New, comments

On the same play that Jeremy Maclin was injured, JJ Watt was hurt. Texans fans are upset about this play because Eric Fisher gave him a little something extra at the end here:

Maybe I don't know the rules or the etiquette here but isn't the play still going on? Couldn't Watt stand back up and run after Alex Smith? I'm sure I'd look at this differently if I were on the other side but I didn't see a big problem with it. It probably didn't help for the Texans that Watt was hurt on the play. And there is a referee right there and there was no call so...

As for this tweet. I love it. Fisher needed some nastiness.

UPDATE: And Watt's reaction...
