Linebacker Joey Porter ran over and verbally lit into Brown, excoriating the second-year pro for letting Spach get the better of him -- exactly the type of direction the Cardinals expected from Porter when they signed the veteran pass-rusher.
"Don't accept anything from anybody, even your teammates," Porter said. "I don't care if he grabbed your face mask or did something dirty. Let him know that is not acceptable. You can handle it right there on the field and get it over with in 30 seconds and come back in the locker room and all be on the same page. But you let anybody get away with something once, they are going to do it all the time. My message to him was, 'Don't let that happen, especially not in front of me.'"
