    Jake Locker questioned Texans 285-pound defensive lineman Antonio Smith after a questionable block at the end of last Sunday’s game, but the Titans quarterback said he wasn’t trying to “create an altercation.”

    Smith blindsided Titans center Fernando Velasco in the final moments of Tennessee’s 24-10 loss, after Locker threw an interception.

    “I didn’t agree with what happened, and I’d hope somebody might do the same for me,” Locker said of his on-field chat with Smith. “I don’t know. I just thought it was something that didn’t need to go unnoticed.”

    Smith didn’t appreciate Locker’s words.

    “The little young whippersnapper tried to come and tell an old cat how to play football,” Smith told the Houston Chronicle. “He faked like he was gonna dap me up. And like grabbed my hand and said, ‘I just want to tell you that was a (dirty) block.’ I just told him, ‘Are we playing football, or is this something else?’ ”

    Velasco and coach Mike Munchak both said the hit was totally unnecessary and a “cheap shot.” The Texans were penalized 15 yards.

    Why should Locker have to apologize? It's was a cheap hit, but it's football - it happens. Locker stood up for his guy, Smith was a d-bag about it. This is an example of the media trying to blow up a story... this happens in every single game, who cares.

    Glad to see Locker sticking up for his teammate, but Smith is a cool guy.
