Things got ugly in Raiders vs. Broncos on New Year’s Day when Aqib Talib ripped Michael Crabtree’s chain off his neck.
After the game, Michael Crabtree told reporters that Aqib Talib is “fake” as a football player, according to ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez.
"You hard? You tough? You snatch a chain in front of the police and run off?" Crabtree said. "I could have cut (block) him. I could have hurt him."
Gutierrez added that Crabtree said he made a “business decision” by not reacting to Talib. "I react, they kick me out of the game." Crabtree also said officials were "disrespectful " to him, and that they were "talking to me like I'm a criminal."
Talib was pretty straightforward as to why he ripped it off:
