Re: The Hit on Brees

Rule 12 Player Conduct Section 2 Article 9 It is a foul if a player initiates unnecessary contact against a player who is in a defenseless posture. ...(b) Prohibited contact against a player who is in a defenseless posture is: (1) Forcibly hitting the defenseless player’s head or neck area with the helmet, facemask, forearm, or shoulder, regardless of whether the defensive player also uses his arms to tackle the defenseless player by encircling or grasping him.

Re: The Hit on Brees

He said he was going for the ball. BS. The ball was down so why hit that high and move your mass behind the player. I do think though if he hits mid section with all his force Brees gets hit much harder but I doubt he took any physics in college. Brees sheered a lot of the force . That doesn't happen if he gets hit in the mid section.

Niners play cheap and dirty.

They finally lost a game because of it.

Now they're crying like a child.

My hate for them continues to grow.

Re: The Hit on Brees

Frisco is a physical dirty team that gets away with a lot of cheap hits. Brooks was trying to rip Drew's head off replay the tape, good call by the Ref's. As said in an earlier thread we are lucky Drew got up.

I agree the hit was marginal at best, certainly not blatant. Defenses just can't take a chance with anything high anymore. 9/10 times the refs are gonna throw the flag, it's not a secret.
