It was not the LAST series of the game. Even after the penalty the niners could have stopped the saints, they didn't, they had the ball with 2min left, kap could've moved them down field and kicked a game winner, they didn't, again on the next series they could've stopped the saints again and possibly went to OT they didn't. My theory is that this is a smokescreen to take away from their offensive struggles and inability to stop the saints so they blame it on one play. I f they lose to the redskins next week the hit will seem like it happened last year and now one will even remember it.
You make some good points ... the Whiners were up 20-17 at that point and the fumble recovery after the hit would have hypothetically put the proverbial nail-in-the-coffin with 3:12 left. Giving the ball back to an explosive offense like the Saints is what frustrates the Whiners most, because everyone on the planet knew NO was gonna' win that game/score with the ball back ... hehehehe, .

Re: The Hit on Brees

So the dude who got away with murdering someone and then taking steroids so he could come back and play in the superbowl has aligned himself with an overrated mouth breather (who, arguably, only won the superbowl cause his coach video taped the other teams play calls) to say that Brooks was wrongfully accused of blatantly tomahawk chopping a star qb in the throat? Sorry, I'm not drinking the kool-aid.

Re: The Hit on Brees

Even if the initial contact was legal the continuation of the tackle is a clear cut foul. Watch Brooks' right hand and arm.

Isn't Kaepernick a runner in this situation? Someone brought this up on Twitter last night during the game and someone else had commented that since Kaepernick was out of the pocket, that it's not the same hit. IDK though. I'd like to hear y'alls input.

Re: The Hit on Brees

I don't know if this was posted but I feel like it's a pretty easy call to make from this view, which this is about where the refs view was when he threw the flag
