    Did anyone see what Nalen did on that play where Olshansky was ejected?

    ON A SPIKE, he intentionally goes for Olshansky's knees trying to injure him (by the way... on a spike ball, OLmen DO NOT block, let alone CHOP at knees). Just completely despicable, I wouldn't blame Olshansky at all for what he did. Nalen should be fined at the very least.

    Not only did he go after his knees, he did it after the ball hit the ground.

    I agree, at first I didn't have a clue why that guy just started punching him. Then when I saw the replay it was plain as day. Everyone else was just standing around and Nalen just dove at his knees. Since he didn't get ejected, I expect to see a hefty fine coming his way.

    It sure looked that way. No need for him to even be moving across the LoS on that play. Unbelievable.

    Seriously, good for Olshansky. Shame he had to hurt his team, but Nalen deserved it. Only wish he landed something harder.

    Pretty ironic that you are posting comments in a thread about dispicable behavior eh Nem? I would think that drumming up a bs story about not having enough money to pay for the Mrs. prescription and you'll be dead in 48hrs is FAR more dispicable than trying to injure another players knee.

    Nice Ukrainian Jewish response to that dirty play - punch the prick in the head. I wish Olshansky got a better shot off causing a concussion or something so the pervert Nalen would never do it again.

    Nalen's play was preplanned. The Donkeys were desperate, and he intentionally did that to provoke a reaction. The Charger was a major league idiot for falling for it.

    IMO that was almost as dirty as when the guy on the Titans (his name is not coming to me) stepped on the guy on Dallas' (his name is not coming to me either) face. The difference is that the Titans guy just lost his cool during a play, although he really lost it. Nalen's action was obviously thought about before the snap, in the huddle, and wasn't provoked (or so it appeared). As we saw with McNabb, ligements can be torn by just puting ones own weight hard on a knee. Nalen could have done serious damage, similar to what Carson Palmer suffered and possibly ended a career. I hope Nalen gets fined and suspended the same if not more than the amount of the San Diego player.

    Lord knows Denver wasn't going to get all of those yards with Plummer at QB. Still a total bush-league move, glad to see the bad guys lose in the end :)

    The Bromcs are the dirtiest team in the league. IIRC Nalen was the guy who broke one of our Brian Cox's leg with a leg whip in 2001.

    NEM -
    While he has no business mentioning it in this thread, how is it that he even KNEW about your situation. Sounds to me like you posted it somewhere to begin with. That opens you up for it to be used against you. Period. Don't like it? Don't post it.

    You are a mean-spirited jerk and this comment is way, WAY out of line. Once again a Newbie drags down the level of discourse here. Seriously - just leave.

    I absolutely agree.

    If ever there were a case for a player being fined and banned this is it. What's more, the franchise should be warned that if there are any repeat performances, there will be sanctions against the team as a whole.

    Not sure NEM,think that was Brian Cox who was hurt by the Broncos a few years back,he stated at the time it was a chop block that did the damage.Dont recall if Nalen was the culprit ,anybody out there remember that? (I'm sure someone will......)

    First, I never intended to hi-jack the thread. But I cannot let Nem off the hook for his behavior. Pretending to be in the poor house and on death's door while using his wife to add to his story is dispicable. He was sent to the A$$clown Asylum (almost as bad as banning) over at Patriotsplanet then, to attempt to get back in the good graces of the forum, he drummed up some story about being bankrupt and not having any money to buy his wife her prescription & that he had 48hrs to live. All while posting in his usual frequency. So I came to Patsfans to see if he was still posting (essentially to verify his ramblings), thankfully he is still alive and well.

    For those of you who disagree with my tactics, so be it. I wanted to publicly call Nem out and for all to see the levels to which he will stoop.

    Nem, I wish no harm on you...but you truly are a POS, and scum of the earth!

    Olshansky was ejected.

    The way I saw it, it looked like Olshansky was duped into committing a PF by Nalen. All Nalen did was make a few waves at his knees, he did nothing illegal nor anything close to injury-threatening. While my opinion of the Denver OL is the same as everyone else's here, and while I agree Nalen has not blocked cleanly in the past on all occasions, this was a case where Nalen was trying to induce a PF in the late stages of the game, and it worked. Schottenheimer nearly blew a fuse in screaming at Olshansky, and deservedly so.

    The replays clearly showed that all Nalen did was literally wave at his knees, he didn't do anything illegal. Olshansky needed to keep his head in the game, that PF could have led to a game-tying TD for Denver.

    As quoted from the YouTube page:

    Madden is also a douche. It's "okay" to take out a player's knee, even after you know it's a spike play? Give me a ******* break.


    Madden is a total dumbass, just retire you old clown.

    I saw the play and it is typical Denver/Shanahan BS. The 49ers did the same bush league crap in the Montana/Young years until teams started going after Michael Carter's knees...it soon stopped. The Nalen play was more bush league by the mere fact that it was a spike. Players on other teams should do a little vigilante justice.

    I don't agree with your assessment. After watching the replay, it looks like a blatant attempt to take his knees out

    Thanks for the YouTube.

    Elsewhere fgssand (i think) asked whether Seymour's reprehensible stomp
    could have been a retaliation against Tarik Glenn.
    Would it then have been justifiable?

    I'd be interested if anyone with film of the Indy game finds whether Glenn committed anything like what stinker Nalen did.

    The zebes seem to watch and see ... without caring.
    Only rough n ready justice from the front sevens themselves
    can stop all this stuff.

    I just watched it too. And I stand by what I said. Nalen was just waving at his legs and Olshansky took the bait. I think if Nalen really intended to injure him, he would have done so.

    I agree with everyone's assessment of Madden's statements. Since when is it okay to go for someone's knees? You can maim someone if it's a spike play? That was the stupidest thing Madden has said since "I think Brady should kill the clock and play for overtime!"

    OBTW I'm sorry that Olshansky didn't get more bang for his buck. If he was going to be so incensed as to take a swipe at Nalen, I would have liked to seen Nalen turned into roadkill. That way, if you are going to get fined, suspended or screamed at by your coach, at least make it worth the trouble.

    Players swing (and hit) each all the time. In the heat of the battle, your emotions get the better of you. In Olshansky's defense, I would agree that the only player on the field who moved more than a couple of feet was Nalen and He's diving into a nearly defenseless player at the knees......

    It was a shameless act that fortunately did not hurt anyone but I can speak from experience here..It does not take much to tear your knee up.

    The Bronco's have a history of this with Shanahan as the coach. Articles have been written about the Bronco's chop-blocks in the past and how many players suffered season-ending injuries. Denver is a dirty team. Its not a secret and I hope that other teams will do the same to them. Too bad we can't send the tight end from Penn State up to Denver to take out Shanahans knee......
