John Lynch is rather upset over the hit he took
from the Falcons' Brian Finneran.
Lynch was angry enough following the play that, after the Broncos medical staff helped him up, he chased Finneran into the Falcons huddle to express his displeasure.
Three days later and facing the prospect of missing two to four weeks because of the injury, Lynch didn't feel any better about it.
"After viewing it, it was a legal hit," Lynch said Wednesday. "Again, we've talked about it before: There's legal and I think there's also - etiquette and football don't really go together - but there's a code of conduct.
"Thirty yards away from the ball, I don't think that's necessary. That's the great thing about this game; you always have an opportunity. My parents taught me in life not to be a vindictive person, but one of the great things about football is it doesn't always carry the same rules.
"I'll have my opportunity, and when that comes, I'll do it cleanly, but that's really my only feelings on that whole situation."
I don't remember Lynch taking his former Buc teammate Warren Sapp to task when Sapp gave Packer Chad Clifton a similar cheapshot in 2002. Clifton was hospitalizied for a month after the hit. Where was Lynch's outrage then?
