On that same play, Coach Jim Harbaugh of the 49ers was screaming to the refs that Klein was also guilty of grabbing the facemask of his QB Kaepernick. I only saw Kaepernick's blatant facemask grab foul, and I think the coach was fabricating a lie to try avoid a loss of yards by getting the refs to call offsetting penalties. His willingness lie reduced my respect for Coach Harbaugh's integrity.
My favorite play was when Tolbert unloaded a major can of whoop ass on 49 safety Eric Reid. This was as close as you can get to Looney Tunes cartoon hit. I actually heard "tweet, tweet, tweet" sounds from the impact.
(seriously, I am glad the players were not injured)
I dont so much question Otah's work ethic or toughness. He played with agressiveness and a mean streak when healthy. But bad knees on a 330lb man are not a good combo.
What I am curious about is the media blackout that has surrounded most players during the lockout. Anything that prevents the press from locating players and conducting interviews? If Iwas in the press and was covering the Panthers, I would seek out Otah to see how he is doing.
