NFL: Browns WR Greg Little Claims Ravens S James Ihedigbo Choked Him

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little claims Baltimore Ravens safety James Ihedigbo choked him during the Browns' 24-18 win on Sunday.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little claims Baltimore Ravens safety James Ihedigbo choked him during the Browns' 24-18 win on Sunday. 

It all started with 1:16 remaining in the first quarter when Little blocked Ihedigbo, per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. The latter then placed his right hand on the back of the former's helmet and pushed it down.

Little shoved back, with Ihedigbo and his teammate, outside linebacker Pernell McPhee, both pushing the Cleveland wide receiver. Little fell onto his backside and that's when the alleged choking incident took place. 

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, "Little said he ripped off Ravens safety James Ihedigbo's helmet during Sunday's 24-18 victory over the Ravens and threw it because Ihedigbo was choking him on the bottom of the pile." Little was given a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. 

Nonetheless, he was adamant about Ihedigbo's actions.

"I know the ref was saying 'let go of his face mask,' but he was choking me, so I'm not (going to let go).There's a thin line between football and just morals and if you're a man, you're not going to let a guy spit in your face, and you're not going to let a guy choke you.

"You're not going to let a guy have (his) way with your kids or your family or your wife. It's just how it is.

"I don't have anything to say to the ref. At that point, (Ihedigbo) crossed the line." 

Little also referred to a screen shot of the incident that went viral online. "The picture is reality," the Browns wide receiver quipped.

He also said,"You can't argue with a stop sign, and you can't portray in a picture something that it's not." 

For his part, Ihedigbo vehemently denied Little's accusation, saying he just put his hand on his chest, per ESPN's Pat McManamon.

"I would never personally cross the lines or play outside the rules in any manner. You can freeze the clip so some surface looks like whatever. I have my hand on his chest. It is what it is. He ripped off my helmet and threw it. 

"I guess he's looking back on him losing his cool and saying what took place that didn't take place. The refs would've seen it. Other players would've seen it. I would've been punished for the play as well." 

Little said he hasn't been informed of any fine from the NFL, but insisted that if he does get fined, Ihedigbo should, too. 

The two traded barbs at the end of the game with Ihedigbo saying Little is "just trying to be a tough guy." Little countered by saying the Ravens safety is "far from tough" and that they can settle the matter on the field when their teams square off again.

Despite Being in Last Place, Browns Fans Should Stop and Smell the Roses

Oct 27 2014 6:02pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In a week-to-week league like the NFL, it can be tough sometimes to stop and smell the roses. With only one game per week, teams, fans and media overreact, overdramatize and overanalyze every single play. The Cleveland Browns have a 4-3 record for the first time since 2001, and the fans need to start sniffing those flowers. Perspective is a tough thing to keep. Fortunately, a short history lesson can help the cause. At this point in 2013, ...

Hue Jackson's Bengals Offense Must Find Balance with Running Game Immediately

Oct 22 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Cincinnati Bengals were supposed to be more focused on running the ball this season with Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator. Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill were to be featured heavily in a offense that would be more balanced, taking the pressure off quarterback Andy Dalton Instead, the Bengals have veered away from the run, and it's leading the entire team astray. It was the most evident in Cincinnati's 27-0 loss in Week 7 to the Indianapolis Colts, a game in ...

Bengals WR Marvin Jones out for the season due to ankle injury

Oct 14 2014 9:04pm CDT | Source: Fantasy Football Toolbox

The Bengals placed wide receiver Marvin Jones on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season before he even played a down. The 24-year-old Jones had a bunch of bad injury luck this year that prevented him from playing in any game, exhibition or otherwise. He suffered an ankle injury prior to training camp which kept him out of action until early August. Then he broke his foot soon he was activated to join the team in camp practices. That injury required surgery, and just as h ...

Tennessee Titans Are Stuck In Limbo Thanks To Betting On Tools

The Tennessee Titans are stuck. Since winning 13 games in 2008 behind the last successful example of Jeff Fisher's ground-and-pound run game, the franchise hasn't won more than nine games in a season. It won just six games in 2012, seven in 2013 and is on pace to finish right around that mark in 2014 despite a head coaching change. The one consistent truth the Titans have faced since letting Fish ...
