Washington Redskins fullback Darrel Young isn’t happy with the actions of the Seattle Seahawks in the Redskins’ 24-14 season-ending loss on Sunday.

According to Jim Corbett of the USA Today, Young says the Seahawks took cheap shots against running back Alfred Morris and said cornerback Richard Sherman was taunting the Redskins sideline. Morris came to the Washington sideline yelling obscenities after defensive end Red Bryant allegedly stepped on him following a play.

“There was a cheap shot — Red Bryant tried to step on [Morris] after a play and hit him in the head,’' Young said. “Alfred Morris is one of the nicest guys you’ll meet.”

“We’ll see them again. When Alfred comes to the sideline cursing, you’ve got a problem because this is a kid who doesn’t curse.’”

Washington offensive tackle Trent Williams took a shot at Sherman in the post-game aftermath on the field Sunday. Williams later apologized for the action, but he wasn’t the only one wanting to go after Sherman.

"[Sherman] was taunting Mike Shanahan on the sideline, telling Mike, ‘You can’t throw over here.’ I wanted to go over and punch him myself,” Young said.

The two teams met in Seattle a season ago and couldn’t even make it to the coin toss without a fight breaking out. The Seahawks have now knocked Washington out of the postseason the last three times they’ve made the playoffs.

None of this is going to cool the growing rivalry between the two teams but they are not scheduled to meet again in 2013 unless they meet once again in the playoffs.
