Sellers Discusses The Hit
"What did I do now?" Sellers asked when he was surrounded by the media yesterday. "I didn't do anything. The week just started, I haven't had a chance."
If you recall, on Sunday, Sellers said he didn't really have a good feel for the hit that leveled Kenoy Kennedy. "Apparently, I ran him over," Sellers said at the time. So yesterday, he was asked whether he had seen it yet.
"Yeah, you know, I was telling somebody earlier, I kind of impressed myself," he said. "I didn't realize it was that bad. I knew I hit him, but I honestly did not really know it was quite that bad."
"For real?" he said. "I don't know, maybe I can get to the Pro Bowl one of these days then, who knows. Hint, hint. Vote, all y'all."
After the game, as you'd expect, Sellers's cell phone blew up.
"God, I had so many freakin' text messages," he said. "I turned my phone off it was that ridiculous. Seriously? Probably about 40 or 50 within three, four hours after the game."
I asked what the messages said.
'Aw, why'd you have to do him like that?' he offered as an example. "You ain't that good."
On the other side of the locker room, teammates seemed well-versed in the hit as well.
"Sellers is a beast," Marcus Washington said. "Sunday after Sunday he's knocking guys down and beating guys up.... You don't want to see your guys be on the other end of that lick. We always say in this game, with the collisions that we have, you're either gonna be the bug or the windshield. It's good to be the windshield. Mike was definitely the windshield on that one."
Later, I asked Sellers whether he had spoken with Kennedy about their dual time in the spotlight.
"Nah," he said. "What am I gonna say to him, 'Sorry for running you over'?"
