Jadeveon Clowney “past” hit that knocked out Carson Wentz

It’s onto Aaron Rodgers for Jadeveon Clowney.

The Seahawks defensive end is done talking about his hit on Carson Wentz that left the Eagles’ quarterback with a concussion.

We’re still playing,” Clowney said Thursday, via Gregg Bell of The News Tribune. “I’m past that. I’m on to Green Bay. Looking forward to this game.”

The NFL is expected to fine Clowney for his hit on Wentz that knocked the quarterback out of the game after nine plays. But Clowney wouldn’t say whether he has received punishment yet.

He shook his head side to side and said, “Past it.”

Officials did not penalize Clowney, ruling it was “incidental contact.”

The Seahawks had seven sacks against Wentz and his backup, Josh McCown, on Sunday. They hope to do the same to Rodgers, who was sacked five times in three different games this season.

“I’ve been watching their game, them against the 49ers,” Clowney said. “The losses that they did take, it was all because of the pressure, applying as much pressure and get off [the field on] third downs. I think it’s going to be the same thing for us. We’ve got to get pressure, and get off on third downs.”

Clowney has never faced Rodgers.

  1. I’m glad you’re past it. Unfortunately, Wentz is still feeling the effects of the concussion you gave him with that cheap shot and he probably will continue to be affected by it to some extent his entire life.

  2. I am not sure he will be fined. It wasn’t spearng and he had his head turned to the side. All the outrage may force the NFL but I am not so sure it is a done deal.

  3. Wentz did not slide and was a ball carrier in that situation. Football players get hit.

  4. The Hawks can win the Super Bowl if every opposing Q.B. is given a head shot like Wentz received.

  5. Wentz didn’t slide because he was on the ground after being tackled but whatever makes you sleep at night.

  6. Wentz was knocked out of the game after nine plays. I’ll bet Rodgers can make it longer than that. Maybe twelve plays. Good luck, Aaron.

    Maybe Wentz should retire if he can’t figure out how to use the myriad of NFL rules protecting the QB to save himself, and he can’t handle NFL hits.

  8. You know how many ‘CHEAP SHOTS’ Russell has taken this season…and they are way worse than this shot! But it’s Philly…so let’s cry about it. East Coast bias didn’t get there wish! GO HAWKS!

  9. Philly has become a bunch of hypocrites. Tackle football bad, but throwing batteries at Santa is acceptable. Careful what you cry about, NFL is about to become flag golf.

  10. Vegas has a prop bet that Clowney will knock AR out of the game. Even if Clowney gets fined, Seattle will make millions advancing in the NFC championship. Clowney will get a new contract that will make more than enough to pay for his fines. Other teams take notice.

  11. Typical weak and whining Philly… Clowney owns that team and they know it. But even worse they know there’s nothing they can do about it. He changes team, division and conference only to OWN them yet again.

  12. Wentz was down. Clowney lowered his head and intentionally hit him in the back of his helmet with the crown of his helmet. Doesn’t matter if he is a runner, QB or RB, that is a penalty. It was also an egregious cheap hit. I think the Texans are glad they moved on from this guy. He is the most overrated player in the league. He has a whole 3 sacks this year and people talk as if he should be a probowler…LOL…Hell he underperformed across from the greatest defensive player of the last decade….

  13. He took a cheap shot at Josh Allen last year, head-butting Allen’s elbow well after the ball was out of his hands. Allen ended up missing several weeks with an elbow injury, and I don’t think Clowney was ever disciplined for it. Unfortunately, this is becoming a pattern of behavior.

  14. Every news outlet is publishing only still pictures of the hit right at the time their helmets meet. If you watch the play in real time, there’s absolutely nothing dirty about it. You try stopping yourself in midair when you’re running full speed towards another person. It’s not even possible that he could have avoided the hit. Just a lot of talk about nothing.

    Typical Seahawks fan. I think Wentz was trying to protect himself with the NFL rule that says it’s illegal to hit a player in the head with your helmet when he’s lying on the ground after being tackled. Didn’t work.

  16. The new era of QB play in the NFL……run holding the ball in a throwing position and pump fake to make closing defender fear hitting you after you have fake thrown the ball, sprint hard towards the sidelines like you are headed out of bounds then cut up field once everyone has stopped pursuing you for fear of a penalty, and like Rodgers, just half run acting like at any moment you might feet first it but don’t until defender is almost hitting you to draw a cheap 15 yard penalty. It’s the James Harden moves on a football field now.

  17. are you guys still talking about this? It wasn’t dirty it was incidental contact and i am eagles fan. I already hate how defenders pull up when a qb is running and they gain extra yards because of people like you crying about it. A qb is a runner and should get no preferential treatment. All it does is water down the game even more than it already is. Stop looking at the end result when you know no one would of said a word about this play if he didn’t suffer the concussion.
