Injured Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is quoted as saying his knee injury could have been avoided. Replays show Seattle FB Mack Strong pushing Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson to the ground. Henderson rolled into Hasselbeck's legs, straining his right knee. He will miss the next three games.

Much like Kimo VonOelhoffen falling into Carson Palmer last season, this looks like nothing more than a part of football; there was no intent to injure, and what's more, it looks very much like if Strong didn't push Henderson, it wouldn't have happened.

Hasselbeck, known as one of the whinier players in the NFL, disagrees. Your thoughts?

This is NFL. He is lucky he walks off the field alive. Poor guy. Now he has to sit out 3 games to collect paycheck. Hope he breaks a leg when he returns.
