I think the niners were trying to get pay back for bountygate. Yet the saints played with more class and came out with the W.

Re: The Hit on Brees

It wasn't helmet to helmet but the clothesline is why they called it which is no-no on any player

League source, penalty on Ahmad Brooks “absolutely correct call.”

The rules prohibit forcible contact with the head OR neck area. Brooks hit Brees in the neck.

Niners fans who are upset about the outcome should be upset with Brooks for choosing not to make clearly legal contact with Brees. If Brooks had, the 49ers possibly wouldn’t currently be tied with the Cardinals for second place in the NFC West.

How are they (49'ers fans) crying about calls when that's what kept them in the game they didn't have to go more than 40 yards on those possessions

Re: The Hit on Brees

I remember a game a year or two ago where our defense was flagged for touching the helmet of the opposing quarterback, "touching" mind you. I don't like the rules, but if you're going to make ****ty rules you should apply them equally across the board.

We use to deal with **** like that in the Haslett era when Michael Vick was running around like a skint dog. Those little touches still get called today.

Re: The Hit on Brees

It was absolutely a good call. It was basically a clothesline tackle and the rule refers to "head and neck area" of a quarterback.

Let me put it this way: it's a lot better of a call than the totally phantom PI call against Corey White.

It is only because of the whine-power of the whiner nation that this is even a talking point.

100% flag.

Read this on some chat thingy:

Actually, William, initially the blow was to the clavicle area as you state, but his arm slid up around his neck as he whipped Brees to the ground, and THAT is why the flag was thrown. Watch it again carefully with an open mind. If that doesn't alter your opinion any, let me pose this to you in another light. First, I'm not a big fan of all the rules they have put in to protect the quarterback, but rules are rules. With that in mind, I will urge you to obtain a copy of the NFL Rulebook and read the section on roughing the passer, then keep in mind your interpretation that it was "a quick, violent hit." The section on roughing the passer clearly states that when in doubt the official shall ALWAYS call roughing the passer.
