Football is such an emotional sport that at times, things get out of hands. We frequently see fights in the stands and also fights between players. Also, Sunday’s Schwartz-Harbaugh skirmish goes to show that even head coaches can let emotions get the best of them.

Fortunately, we do have at least one feel-good story. After passing away in late September this year, former Titans/Broncos offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger was recently honored at his funeral by many of his NFL colleagues such as close friend Mike Shanahan and also Jeff Fisher.

However, one guy I did not expect to see was Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak. The Titans and Texans are fierce rivals and last year’s Cortland Finnegan-Andre Johnson fight was a microcosm of this rivalry. This year, the Titans and the Texans are battling for the AFC South crown as the Jaguars and Colts have combined for one win. After a loss to the Ravens this past week, the Texans will travel to Nashville to take on the Titans in what should be a huge game for both franchises.

Neither of these teams like each other — but Kubiak and his wife flying to Tennessee to attend Heimerdinger’s funeral is a very classy move. This demonstrates that while football is an intense sport, everything should be left on the field. Life goes on.

RIP Mike Heimerdinger (1952-2011)
