    Titans safety Michael Griffin delivered the big hit – and he paid for it.

    Griffin on Tuesday was fined $21,000 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness after delivering a sideline hit on Vikings receiver Michael Jenkins in Sunday’s 30-7 loss to the Vikings. Griffin was also penalized 15 yards on the play, when he led with his helmet while making the hit.

    Griffin has been criticized by fans for not being more aggressive. Earlier last week, Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said he wanted his players to be more physical without worrying about fines.

    “It is easy for everybody to say “Take the shot.” But how easy is it to come out of my pocket?,’’ Griffin said. “It is one of those deals where I am a dumb (expletive) if I don’t make the hit, and I am a dumb (expletive) if I do and get penalized and fined. If I don’t take the hit, fans and everybody else is pissed off. If I do, it comes out of my wallet. So it’s a no-win situation.”

    As a result of the fine, Griffin can’t help but wonder what might happen if he gets another.

    Will that make him more tentative on the field?

    “The fine could double, or you could get a one-game suspension if the league thinks you didn’t learn your lesson,’’ Griffin said. “It puts you in a tough spot. But you just have to play and try not to worry about it.”

    He went in high and lead with his helmet. HE sucks, if he would have lead with his shoulder and hit in the stomach area he wouldn't have been fined. LOSER

    If I were Griffin, I'd submit game film to prove that any contact is unintentional.

    He can take comfort knowing that he's a " key member " of the first defense in NFL history to give up 30+ points a game in their first five games. Dudes a record setter! What a joke.
