    Two weeks into the NFL's regular season, and two fines for Flozell Adams.

    Adams was slapped with a $12,500 fine by the league today for tripping New York's Justin Tuck in the first quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Giants. The fine seemed inevitable, given that it was (a) really obvious, and (b) resulted in Tuck missing the rest of the game, and possibly the Giants' week three game against Tampa Bay.

    Last week, Adams was fined a cool $5,000 for unneccesary roughness, when, on an end-around, he "unnecessarily struck his opponent in the head area."

    Safety Gerald Sensabaugh was also fined $5,000, the result of Dallas' favorite personal foul, the horse-collar.

    That Adams is batting 1.000 with respect to being fined isn't all that surprising. Adams is the most penalized active lineman in the league, committing infractions with such regularity, it's a wonder he wasn't drafted by the Oakland Raiders.
