Default Posh McDaniels calls Harrison shot on Orton a cheap one

Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton almost had his night shortened by a big hit from linebacker James Harrison.

After Harrison picked up a loose ball and rumbled toward the end zone in the second quarter, Orton tried to tackle him low but Harrison put his helmet down and hit Orton on the back of the head and his left shoulder.

"I don't know if I went after him or he went after me," Orton said. "You have to try to save a touchdown and took a pretty decent shot, yeah. Just got the wind knocked out of me. Felt pretty good afterward."

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels stopped just short of calling Harrison's hit a cheap shot.

"It kind of looked like Harrison knew he was going to go low and then he took the liberty to go ahead and go after the quarterback," McDaniels said. "Whether or not it was a cheap thing, I'm not sure. I'll have to see it on film, but it didn't look right."

Harrison said it was just a smart football move.

"I was being aggressive on the play," Harrison said. "I play aggressively. I was going to the ground and wanted to get as many yards as I could."

McDaniels is from the School of Whiny Belichick Clones. If anything, Orton tried a cheap-shot tackle on Harrison & got what he deserved.

I think Harrison saw a great opportunity to hit Orton and took it. All the great LB's had that mean streak in them, thats why we love them!

Orton was not a QB at the particular moment. He was a defender!
Harrison would have laid his shoulder low on anyone, any player at that moment.
First to gain more yards, to put out punishment, and to protect his knees (hence reason to go low).

But nothing is being said that Orton flung himself down on the ground to potentially take out Harrison's knees? Silverback does what he does: DELIVERS THE BLOW. Orton was a compete dumbf_ck for even going and trying to make the tackle. Everyone knows and you're taught at an early age that when such a turnover occurs, anyones game, including the QB (who tried to make the tackle.) In fact, I would have been dissapointed if Harrison wouldn't of taken that approach.

I don't think Silverback's intention was to injure...make him think twice about it next time, sure...but not to injure. At least it didn't look that way to me. I'd have to see a replay of it again myself.

I bet the next time a defensive player is running toward him, he'll see an image of Silverback stormin' towards him and fall flat on his face and covering his eyes.
