Around the NFC West: Hasselbeck apologizes

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

Frank Hughes of the Tacoma News Tribune says Matt Hasselbeck is apologizing to the Cardinals for suggesting Adrian Wilson should be fined for hitting him. Hasselbeck isn't pushing for a fine and he regrets what he said Sunday night. This didn't seem to be a case of Hasselbeck's emotions getting the best of him after a tough defeat. He just seemed out of it. Coach Mike Holmgren said Hasselbeck did not suffer a concussion, but the quarterback did become ill after the game, so he was probably more drained than usual.

Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat says the 49ers were back to work Monday instead of celebrating a Victory Monday. Coach Mike Singletary wanted players to be around one another a day after winning.

Bill Coats of Around the Horns says the Rams have already ruled out Steven Jackson for their next game. This thigh bruise is a lot worse than the Rams thought in the beginning.

Darren Urban of azcardinals.com says Hasselbeck might deserve some leeway for his postgame comments given how out-of-it the quarterback seemed following the game.
