To find out he's been fined.

Pro Bowl cornerback Cortland Finnegan ... is in his third NFL season after being a seventh-round draft pick out of Samford. He's in his second year as a starter and was selected to his first Pro Bowl as an AFC starter Tuesday. He plays with so much intensity that after tangling with Baltimore receiver Derrick Mason in a game Oct. 5 that his own teammates had trouble calming him down.

He's also drawn his share of personal fouls, including in last week's 13-12 loss to Houston in which he was flagged for roughing the passer with helmet-to-helmet contact with Matt Schaub and unnecessary roughness for spearing at the end of a tackle in the same series.

The NFL fined him $25,000 Thursday for the plays, and Finnegan told The Tennessean he planned to appeal.

That dude is a major douchenozzle, but he's also a hella CB.  Can play man, zone, whatever.  Put him out on an island against anybody and he holds his own.  Solid tackler and not afraid to stick his nose in on run support too.

His only drawback is the gray matter between his ears.  I've seen Bulluck have to get in his face on more than one occasion. 

Guaranteed he and Ward get into it on more than one occasion Sunday afternoon.

Let's hope he has at least one drive-extending personal foul!

When you're a head on a pillow, how the hell else to they expect you to make a tackle?
