Gus Frerotte has called out Titans defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch over a low hit that left the Vikings‘ QB curled up in an agonized ball on the LP Field turf. “It was a direct shot,” Frerotte said. “That just isn’t called for in this game. To take and just spear somebody like that. That’s pretty ridiculous. I mean, the guy plays hard and he goes all out, but he wants to do those kind of things.
“I’ve been playing this game a long time and that’s no different than a guy coming off the side and hitting you in the knee without anybody touching him. Those kinds of things just can’t happen.”
Vanden Bosch was called for roughing the passer on the play. This helped the Vikings at the time, giving them a first down that allowed them to subsequently punch it into the endzone and cut the fourth quarter deficit to 23-17. Vanden Bosch was unapologetic. “Unfortunately it could have cost us the game,” he said. “It was a big penalty. If I hit him low I need to use better judgment. But I felt like it was a clean play.”
In what league is driving your helmet into a man’s jewels a clean play? The National Shameless Scumbag League? Vanden Bosch needs to be fined if not suspended. Jesus, what is it about Tennessee Titans linemen? If it isn’t Albert Haynesworth trying to stomp guys’ heads it’s Vanden Bosch attempting to flatten their testicles. Do the coaches there teach that kind of stuff? The whole organization needs to be investigated. What a bunch of bush-leaguers.
