I saw that live... and remembered the Suh situation where he kicked a guy in the groin and tried to explain that was "how you fall" in the NFL.

That leads to two possibilities:

1. Suh was right, and Brady confirmed that is how you fall... kicking up a foot in the air.

OR (more likely)

2. It was a conscious and dirty play.

FYI, I'm not jumping on the "Patriots are the dirtiest team ever" bandwagon... just nodding in agreement that this particular play didn't feel right when I watched it live.

Well, the two plays weren't really similar. Brady was looking right at him and put his leg up in a controlled slide. Suh hit a guy that was basically behind him while he was somersaulting.

Brady doesn't seem to have a reputation of doing dirty things like that (but it doesn't mean he'd never do it, of course), while Suh has just such a reputation.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

Quite true, but that doesn't mean that everything Suh does is deliberate/nasty and nothing that Brady does is.

I agree. Keep in mind, however, that because of Suh's reputation, people are more likely to believe he'd do something dirty than would Brady.

Fair or not, one's prior actions lead to these presumptions.

Yeah, I was wondering about that "leg lift slide" myself. The announcers at the time said that it might have been an attempt at protecting himself BUT that, more often than not, it injures the person DOING the sliding because it's exposed the leg and knee to all sorts of danger.

Heard on ESPN not too long ago (today) that Ed Reed said Tom Brady had reached out to him and apologized.

I'd also say it could be a natural reaction to a 250+ monster looking to collide with you— however dangerous an extended leg might be to both parties.....

Tom Brady reportedly fined $10,000 for slide.

So...

Why no Pro Bowl Pick 'em?

I say east/north beats west/south (or whatever they will be called)... and there will be several almost plays that nearly look like something you might see in a real football game.

Story here

Not the Patriots, no! Shocking, I say! Shocking!!!

I heard Belicheat hired Lance Armstrong as "special advisor" to the team that year. :lol:

Meanwhile, more controversy. This was actually known a few weeks ago but officially announced today.

Several current NFL officials are claiming the NFL intentionally changed Boger's ratings to get them up to the #1 spot so he could be assigned the Super Bowl as referee.

I've seen him work, and personally, he never struck me as being that good.

I don't know... Faulk says there were plays they had not ran before, and that the Patriots defended them too perfectly, as if they knew they were coming... but IF the Rams had not ran the plays in a game all season, maybe they didn't run the play to perfection themselves.

All told... I watched that game... and the Rams seemed to stop running the ball and using Faulk as they had previously... *that* is what lost them the game that year.

And to be fair... that same team went on to smaller and lesser things with Martz at the helm, and Martz hasn't done well at his other stops since then. I'm inclined to hold Martz to the fire for that.

The year before, they barely beat the Titans in the Super Bowl anyway... so while I loved me some "greatest show on turf" those years, they were not an invincible team as Faulk might want to remember them.
