Enjoy the win .. think the refs were in position to make what they thought was the right call.Why are you not bitching about the leg whip on Johnson or Talib grabbing Smittys face mask?
Of course I did say the Patriots played dirty in the OP. Also, I was very happy to see CJ come back on the field. I much rather have him healthy again, even more than a win last night. It's awesome we got both.
First off, whatever bear hug you saw happen outside of the goal line. Grun overan his play and Kuechly was right with him. You could see from the tape that Kuechly and Grunt so called hug happened outside of the endzone and the ball was like 6 feet infront of him.
Answer me this question, do you think if Cam was on the other side of the throw instead of Brady the media would have been carrying on the way they are? If you answer is NO, then there is no controversy. We cannot keep living and judging every outcome of a game based on the mindset and attitudes of those who believe they are the gate-keepers to the NFL.
As far as the media goes, I believe the same fuss would have been made if this happened with Cam and Olsen. I don't care much about the media going crazy. I do believe the last play cheapened the game though. Yet there is no question, Kuechly made illegal contact against Gronk, and had Gronk made any kind of attempt to come back for the ball (or if Brady threw it further in the endzone), Kuechly would have been called for a penalty. The ball wasn't that far from where the contact occured, it wasn't like Brady threw it to the one yard line, it was in the endzone.
I'll be back to respond to some of the other posts.
