Hasselbeck Appealing Fine for Horse Collar Tackle

Posted Nov 7, 2012

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck says he will appeal a $15,750 fine for a horse collar tackle in Tennessee's 51-20 loss to Chicago after a turnover.

Hasselbeck dragged Bears cornerback Kelvin Hayden down by the back of the jersey at the Tennessee 4 following a fumble by tight end Jared Cook early in the fourth quarter last weekend.

The 14-year veteran said Wednesday he understands the intent of the rules and obviously tries to play within the rules without trying to hurt anybody. He says Hayden probably didn't notice, and Hasselbeck hopes NFL officials agree with the Titans.

Hasselbeck says he has been the target of plenty of jokes over the fine but it's not funny to a quarterback who obviously doesn't practice tackling.
