I don't think Brady meant to do it, but I am certainly not sure. If he did, it was really dumb, especially after Suh did something similar. Luckily for him, everyone will move on with the SB hype.
More importantly, I think the comparisons of how these QBs scrambled was really telling of how the teams performed in general. Brady just didn't want to get hit, and even threw an incompletion when he could have run for a first, whereas Flacco was going to fight for every yard.
Love this team.
I think the only reason they didn't flag Brady is hat they WOULD have had to throw him out and there was no way they were throwing Tom Brady out of the AFCCG unfortunately. They should have, but they would have been crucified before making it out of town. That aside though, the disparity in PF calls was awful. As soon as I saw Ridley get taken out I knew the game was over.
The 3-second sideline pass, OTOH, was ridiculous.
BRADY IS A PUNK... unreal
From that angle its pretty obvious, isn't it?
NFL should really fine Brady.
If a flag is thrown on Brady, it stops the clock and gives the Patriots about 17-18 seconds to compose themselves and take a couple of shots into the end zone. Instead, they fail to call a time out, the clock runs down, and they settle for a field goal.
No flag on that play actually benefited the Ravens.
