Seahawks react on Twitter to ‘dirty’ hit on Chris Carson week three
By Lee Vowell
Seahawks running back Chris Carson was injured in week three when Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill seemed to intentionally hurt him.
Chris Carson suffered a mild sprain of his knee in the Seahawks victory over the Cowboys in week three. He was tackled in the fourth quarter by Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill and the play at first was fine. It was after Hill kept holding on to Carson’s leg…and then kept holding on to Carson’s leg…and then kept holding it and then twisted it.
The play was dirty. That is a fact. Players are taught a “gator roll” tackle but this is to keep a player from gaining extra yards. A player shouldn’t do a gator roll after the play is basically dead. Carson got hurt on the play and the fault lies with Hill. And a few Seahawks let their disapproval of the player be heard.
K.J. Wright is not only one of the most respected Seahawks off the field but he is just a generally nice and decent person. For him to use an expletive when tweeting something means he is really upset. If Seattle plays Dallas again this year it would be in the postseason and no doubt Wright would have some words to say directly to Hill.
Quandre Diggs got tossed in week two for the Seahawks after a helmet to helmet hit on a Patriots receiver so he knows something about what it takes to get thrown out. He is right, of course. Hill should have gotten thrown out, fined and suspended.
The play itself
If you haven’t seen the play in question, see above. Wait until the end. If you don’t see any problems with it then you simply hate the Seahawks without objectivity.
Pete Carroll was upset
Pete Carroll normally espouses optimism and if he mentions a player screwing up it’s basically like implying someone has committed a dyer crime.
But Pete spoke for all 12s when he says the play “pissed” him off. Again, the play was dirty. Carson hopefully won’t be out long and Hill deserves to be suspended.
