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

    Oh jesus christ.

    He got pushed by the RB who picked him up on the blitz, his body was moving sideways, and he was looking downfield, there is no way he even knew Hasselbeck was there, even after he hit him it seemed like he didnt know or care.

    It's just another way the media is trying to make the Vikings look bad, even after a dominating victory over the NFC champions.

    Stupid comment. This just proves they don't watch film.

    I feel bad for Hasselback, but you can't possibly blame EJ.
    I believe it was the FB. Or atleast that's what I heard from a commentator on some highlights.

    [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.

    It was 100% Mack Strong the FB.

    They stalked about this on ESPN last night.
    All three analysits, when asked if they thought the hit was dirty or avoidable, said absolutely not.
    The only people who think the hit was dirty are Seattle fans and players.
    They are quickly turning into the crybabies of the NFL.


    Waaah, we lost the superbowl - it was the ref's fault.
    Waahh, we lost our starting QB - it was a dirty hit. Waaaaah.

    I don't blame Henderson for being upset. I would be livid.
    This is a non-issue. Get over it, Seattle.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
