Found October 15, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
How can you hurt your team more? Throwing a punch that makes you look like a girl and hurts your team. That is what Eagles first-round DT Fletcher Cox was ejected for in Sunday’s Week 6 loss to the Lions. With 10 minutes left in regulation, Cox found himself at the bottom of a pile and said he felt someone hitting him. So he started punching his way out and the refs caught him. “I must admit I did throw a punch,” he said afterward. Cox, the No. 12 overall pick, has been the Eagles’ best interior run-stuffer this season. I don’t care if they are biting you, you are a big burly football player that cost your team a penalty, which ultimately cost you the game. Expect a fine big man, but they should force you to take Boxing lessons.
