Re: The Hit on Brees

The rules say you can't go at the head of a QB, looked like he tried to decapitate Drew with the clothesline. Good Call in my book

BS or No BS?

No BS.

Not only was it a tomahawk to the neck it was helmet to helmet. Surprised that Brees survived.

1975 vintage highlight reel. 2013, 1975 is only cool at a thrift store. Should have been ejected.

Re: The Hit on Brees

To me it was a good call, not because of the location of the hit (it obviously wasn't to the helmet), but because of the way the defender swung his arm. You can't swing your arm at a player's throat like that and not expect to get penalized.
