I won’t harp on the questionable hit all week, but it must be discussed a little bit more. The Dallas Morning News reports today that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terry Glenn isn’t so sure Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry (learn how to spell his name Calvin “Tattle-tale” Watkins) was really “going for the ball.” In fact, what he says is pretty damming for the Redskins. You can watch the play here.
“It shocked me,” Glenn said. “I had no idea that was going to happen. Those guys were out there trying to really take it to my knee. They know if they see us again, they will have problems, especially in Dallas. I think they were trying to hurt me.”
Landry was asked about the questionable hit. His snarky reply will cost the Redskins if they make it to the second round. This is starting to irritate the Cowboys, Landry. It’s embarrassing that you even carry the same last name as such a legend as Tom Landry.
Punk Landry said to Glenn:
“Then stop playing football. I’m not getting a big head or anything, but if he thought the hits were a little low and this and that, it doesn’t matter. It’s all part of the game. It’s going to be physical.”
I think Landry has a guilty conscious and his reply solidifies this thought. But why were the Redskins trying to ruin this guy’s career?
Coach Wade Phillips says Landry’s hit was not a late hit nor was it dirty. Fine. I will live with Phillips’ decision. I won’t bring this up again unless it is proven that Landry’s hit was on purpose and that the Redskins we’re trying to cripple Glenn.
“No, on tape he is going for the ball on the ground and then he slid,” Phillips said.
