    The putz still is in denial that his own player knocked Henderson into him.

    There's nothing more classless than holding a grudge.

    What a pussy, that was not intentional.
    Bust him in the knee caps this time, if you're taking the blame it might as well be real.

    What a ballerina, maybe EJ can give him a nice massage on the way to a turf salad this weekend.
    Give a little happy feet a chance, what a prima donna.

    What hit? His own player knocked EJ into him & it wasn't even a hit, EJ was already on the ground & got rolled into him.

    Article from last year.....

    [size=13pt]Defending E.J. Henderson[/size]

    By Eric Krupka on October 25, 2006 12:27 AM

    As most of the football world knows, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was injured in the third quarter of Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings . He sustained a grade II sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee, which is expected to keep him out for at least three weeks.

    Hasselbeck thinks that Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson intentionally injured him. He claims that not only was the hit dirty, but that the Seahawks' defense would never have delivered a similar shot to Vikings quarterback Brad Johnson.

    After the game a visibly upset Hasselbeck said, "I'm sure he [Henderson] didn't try to put me out for a long period of time. But they didn't want me to finish the game, either."

    Is the signal caller out of his mind, or what?

    He went on to say, "I don't think it was unavoidable, but only he would know. Who knows? He does."

    Pretty harsh words for a clean hit. Let me say that again, a clean hit. After the game, Henderson denied trying to injure the star quarterback.

    Hasselbeck even compared the play to the devastating injury suffered by Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer in last year's playoffs, when he took a similar hit to the leg from then-Steelers defensive lineman Kimo von Oelhoffen.

    "You look at the play with Carson Palmer last year and you look at E.J. Henderson and me this past week. Hey, whatever," said Hasselbeck.

    Just insinuating the hit was a cheap shot is bad enough. Then again, when you get hurt and your team loses, the only thing to do is look for excuses, right?

    The fact is, after looking at the replay numerous times, one can see that the Vikings' linebacker, while running full speed, was pushed from behind by Seahawks fullback Mack Strong, knocking the defender to the ground and subsequently into Hasselbeck.

    Maybe you should check out the footage again, Matt, before staking false claims. It's unfortunate that you were injured, but let's be honest with ourselves. The Vikings and E.J. Henderson had no intent to hurt you. Accidents happen, and injuries are a part of sports, especially football.

    After the game, the only talk surrounding Henderson was about the roll into Hasselbeck. It's sad, because the complaining by the Seahawks' quarterback has clouded a tremendous performance by the Vikings' fourth-year linebacker.

    Henderson led all Vikings defenders with nine tackles, all solo, and notched his second interception of the season, and second in two games. Unfortunately, if you didn't see the game, you wouldn't know this.

    The 'backer played one of his best all-around games as a pro -- flying all over the field, stout in the run game and strong in pass coverage.

    So, was the roll into the legs intentional?

    Absolutely not.

    However, Matt Hasselbeck would like you to think otherwise.

    Just don't believe him.
