Seahawks' Owen Schmitt Beats Himself Bloody with Helmet: During the pregame ceremonies at the Seattle Seahawks game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, fullback Owen Schmitt hit himself in the head twice with his helmet, opening up a bloody gash that required stitches. And it wasn't the first time, either.

This is the guy that I don't want to hear some sob story about in 25 years. If he ends up with some form of PCS induced dementia, Alzheimers or worse, is the NFL's lagging effort to prevent head injuries/concussions really to blame?

As dumb as his move was, it doesn't appear he's giving himself a concussion.

Yeah, but it seems like he's a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

Chad Ochocinco has volunteered to help him change his name to:

0 - Schmitt

Sounds like he is already looking forward to retiring from football and starting his next career in professional wrestling.

Didn't seem to hurt the squad out on the field today. Maybe they needed a little crazy blood lust to get out of the slump they were in. That and Hasselbeck.

He may have mistook himself for a Schmidt hammer.

If they didnt have a helmet on, they would have been hurt too.
