    Fox sports says Hasselbeck's injury a "Cheap Shot" by EJ

    Seattle blue
    The Seahawks' 12-game home-winning streak went up in smoke with a 31-13 loss to Minnesota, but the news could end up being worse on Monday when the results of a MRI exam on Matt Hasselbeck's right knee are known. You hate to guess, but Hasselbeck could have a torn a ligament on what definitely looked like a cheap shot by Minnesota linebacker E.J. Henderson.
    On the play in question, Henderson seemed to keep on rolling onto Hasselbeck's leg in a slow-motion routine. It definitely looked like he could have stopped if he wanted to. Yes, the Seahawks may get MVP Shaun Alexander back in a week or two, but this offense is built around Hasselbeck. That's why they traded with New England for Deion Branch and signed Nate Burleson in free agency.

    Seattle knows its window of opportunity — another Super Bowl shot — is this season. Seneca Wallace may keep the Seahawks in the race, but they aren't winning any playoff games with him. Also I'm sure that Seattle coach Mike Holmgren noticed that his favorite All-World guard, Steve Hutchinson, helped spring running back Chester Taylor on his team-record 95-yard touchdown for the Vikings.

    - I didn't think it was, but what do you think?

    That is crazy. Everyone who saw the game and the replays, would be able to see that Henderson never tried to hit Matt.

    It was simply an accident.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    On the replay it was obvious he was pushed into Hasselbeck.Not a cheap shot.

    I do not think it was a cheap shot. It happens all the time, he got hurt this time. It is unfortunate.

    Complete BS.
    That was obviously accidental.
    Conspiracy theory BS.

    Absolutely not a cheap shot.
    Morris, Strong, or some Seattle OL definitely pushed him into Hasselback.
    Even if EJ could've physically stopped his body from the continued roll, he wouldn't necessarily known he was about to hit Hasselback.
    It was definitely unintentional.
    That is the way it goes.
    I feel bad for Hasselback, but you can't possibly blame EJ.
    Ahh PURPLE is the color of all my Dreams!! GO VIKES!! Bring us a Lombardi!!

    Same scenario that got carson palmer in the playoffs last year.
    EJ was blocked into matt, plain and simple.
    EJ is not a dirty player.
    Frankly, I think we still would have beaten their jiggly butts had hasselback stayed in.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    Well given the standard of some of the commentating from Fox Sports then I'm not surprised that this jerk says its cheap shot - obviously having the ability to watch the game and see what is happening is not a requirement at Fox.
    Some of these guys don't know their arse from their elbow
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
