Texans Have Annual Scuffle With Saints

Fighting may not always be the answer, but neither is pulling someone's hair. I expect NFL players to at least be bosses when they get in scuffles, but such a case isn't true for the Saints.

In what seems to be an annual theme nowadays, the Texans and Saints had another on-field fight, elementary school style.

"I guess they liked my hair," Henry said. "They were always pulling on it. I didn't mind; it's not going to come out...When somebody pulls your hair, it's like they're saying, 'I can't do anything but pull your hair.' So I take it as a compliment."

It's no secret that the Texans' backfield took a hit by losing Ben Tate for the season, but the backfield isn't going to keel over any time soon. Chris Henry, Arian Foster and Jeramiah Johnson may not be household names, nor do they sport Super Bowl rings.

But when push came to shove (and pull, for Henry's case), the Texans' backfield showed heart. If the Texans plan on making the playoffs this year, they're going to need that attitude.
