Aqib Talib Talks Fight with Michael Crabtree, Potential Suspension or Fine

The two threw punches at each other - igniting a brawl - and were ejected during the first quarter of the Raiders 21-14 win on Sunday.

Talib has since come forth to explain his side of the story, saying all he did is come out "to play football on Sunday". He came out here on his extra stuff - one thing led to another, man. On Monday, Talib was asked about the brouhaha, and he placed the blame directly on Crabtree's shoulders.

While the Denver Broncos lost their seventh straight game on Sunday, they went down fighting. The first half, that was him.

The two then exchanged punches, but Talib's punch came closest to landing.

Harris accused Crabtree of punching him in the stomach the play before Talib and Crabtree renewed their rivalry with fisticuffs. "We can't lose our best players because of personal battles".


With the waters murky on who and how the fight started, Joseph said Talib will not face discipline from within the organization and said if the league takes their own disciplinary actions on the veteran cornerback, "That's their decision". "If you see the play, I didn't defend Chris".

"There was. I guess the second half of it definitely could have been defused", Talib said.

Joseph said he wouldn't consider any additional discipline for Talib and would wait to see whether the National Football League would hand something down.

"I'll say this, I'm not sure how it all started". Talib was suspended for one game in the 2015 season for poking then-Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen in the eye. "When those things start, it's a fine line between once it starts and not defending yourself... So, I wasn't even defending Chris this time, it wasn't a problem". It eventually turned into a full-on brawl with punches being thrown and others getting involved. "I want our guys to simply defuse and walk away, that's what I want".
