Cheap a$$ play.
Brady would've deserved to pop a knee on that
If Suh would have done that it would have been on the frontpage of ESPN
Why was it dirty? All he did was lift his leg up to protect himself. He did not kick.
I don't know
If I'd wish him malice, but Brady just pulled a weak arse stunt on that one. Love to see Reed get an open shot on Brady
Man. He absolutely tried to kick him
It's like sliding high in baseball.
Never Gets Old
Yep, he should have laid there and let a 200lb. safety run into him. Obviously, he tried to kick him without even moving his leg (once it was in the air), because football is a slow, methodical sport that allows for such calculated decisions. Instincts, such as moving something in between you and a large object heading toward you, don't play a role at all.
This is so stupid. Once again, he didn't make any kicking motion. You people are ridiculous.
Dude. You are crazy. In the slow motion video he absolutely raises his leg UP to kick him. Harbaugh also is telling the refs that should be a personal foul that he kicked him. Go watch
Exactly. And sliding high is considered a dirty play
He raises his leg UP to put something in between himself and Ed Reed. You seem to have a lot of trouble with reading comprehension. Last I checked, kicking someone meant moving your leg forcefully at them. His leg never moved once it was in the air. That is not a kick.
The slide is his protection. If the D hits him they get popped with 15 yards.
I have Never seen a QB raise his leg up into a defender when sliding. Once he slides the play is dead.
In fact, he put reed into danger. Reed was ready to go over him but could've easily been hurt by the kick to his leg and hyper extending his knee
Unnecessary. And cheap
Yeah...because Reed never takes cheap shots. Give me a break
Done with this. Bet he gets fined.
Well then it must be impossible. As we all know, quarterbacks are robots, because people are instinctive and unpredictable. Wait...
It may not be kicking but you can damn sure cleat someone by sticking your leg straight into someone's thigh
I'm not saying it was something that he should have done or that it wasn't dangerous. Hell, he was risking injury to his own leg. That's a lot of force to put on it. But that doesn't mean he was trying to kick anyone. I guess we should just defer to Brady's long and storied history of taking cheap shots.
Not saying Brady is dirty at all. Just think that was a questionable slide. And I agree he could've taken himself out if the game easier than cause real injury to Reed there
Brady no doubt has a history of manipulating the rules designed for QB protection. I have seen him innumerable times begging for a flag for extremely marginal late hits, contact to helmet as well anytime he gets hit as he begins to initiate his slide. He freakin begs for flags.
The rules in place to "protect" high profile QBs are ridiculous. And so yeah it pisses me off when the bubble wrapped QBs do crap like this.
Lulz. He did not kick. He never bent his knee. Oh, I guess I forgot about the treacherous limp leg kick.
That I agree with. And to that point I think it's total BS when a safety is coming in to tackle a WR chest high, yet the WR ducks into the contact leading to helmet to helmet contact. Yet the Safety is expected to be superman and adjust mid air to avoid it. Penalty called.
dL comes in and jumps up in an attempt to bat down a pass, misses and brushes across the QBs helmet. Intent? Hell no. But that umpire will throw the flag anyway.
Again in this case Reed wasn't even coming down to hit him. He didn't even anticipate Brady's slide so Reed was coming in high. The QB is protected by the slide and Brady has slid a million times. He knows he is protected by rule.
Different views I guess but I don't buy for a second that he was just "reacting"
I now feel vindicated!
exactly. Allow those skull shattering hits or fine it both ways.
