Re: The Hit on Brees

Marginal - wouldn't have been upset if Personal Foul wasn't called...

Don't wish it on him, but Drew increased the likelihood of this scenario with his Tom Condon contract...

Now, would you rather have 14mil/year and be able to enjoy some quality of life?!?

...or would you rather have 20mil/year with your food fed to you threw a straw in your forty's while your wife is in the next room with the Hans the physical therapist?!?

Re: The Hit on Brees

If you watch the play 2s earlier, he winds up before he close lines.

If Drew loses his head who gets his "spirit"

Y! SPORTS

More delusional BS- writer and Brooks flat out say Brees gets star treatment,

Brees NEVER gets the PF or UR calls

I'd of been upset with a no-call just because they're dang sure throwing the flag for a lot less these days ... .

Re: The Hit on Brees

If Brees is 6"4 it would have been a great play. We have had calls against us for far less. That penalty negated a really great call and play . Crucial mistake cost the 9ers the game

Re: The Hit on Brees

If we are going to get upset over referee calls we should seek Prozac first. Some go our way, some don't go our way.. Its split second subjective.

Re: The Hit on Brees

Okay, I think it was a good call, but, I have to say this...

I love that this happened against the 49ers. Some of you may not be old enough to remember this, but, when Montana and Rice played for the 49ers they got ABSOLUTELY EVERY call. When in doubt, give Jerry Rice the touchdown.

The high profile player getting the call is nothing new to the league. Others have already pointed out how Vick was protected when he came into the league.

Re: The Hit on Brees



Tony Corrente got the call right in New Orleans. With 3:18 left and San Francisco up by three in a crucial game between the Niners and Saints, linebacker Ahmad Brooks sacked Drew Brees and forced a fumble, which the Niners recovered. The problem was the sack, and the mechanics of it. Brooks clotheslined Brees on a hit that started above the sternum and finished with him forcibly sending Brees to the ground by contacting the neck with his forearm. Corrente called a personal foul on Brooks, gave the gall back to New Orleans, and the Saints went on to win with two Garrett Hartley field goals in the final three minutes. Emotional call, obviously, one that hurt the Niners grievously. But if youíve seen nothing else in this league over the past three years, youíve seen that officials are charged with protecting the quarterback above all others. And Corrente was protecting the quarterback. He did it wisely. Brees was tossed to the ground because of a forearm that finished on his neck. I thought the call was obvious.

Re: The Hit on Brees

What was BS was us NOT beating this team by 14 points.
