    There's no rule against sticking your leg up when you slide, and whether or not he was kicking Reed (I think he was), that's going to be a subjective judgement by the officials on the field- and later the guys who decide if you get fined.

    I doubt any of them are going to believe Future Hall of Fame Quarterback Tom Brady was trying to kick Reed. I may think he was, but I doubt any of them will. I'm positive none of the officials on the field did.

    So, while it's illegal to kick another player, it's not illegal to slide with your foot up in the air and waving it around. There's no rule like there is protecting a QB or defenseless receiver from hits to the head, where intent or even what happens during the play doesn't matter. It doesn't matter on those plays if the QB or receiver moves to put their head in the line of fire. It's up to the defender to avoid contact with the head regardless of what the offensive player does. There's no "intent free" rules when it comes to lifting a leg in the air while sliding.

    The 3-second sideline pass, OTOH, was ridiculous.[/QUOTE]

    Wasn't being paranoid, sorry if it came off that way. Honestly didn't know that.

    I actually don't think he was intentionally trying to kick/hurt Reed. I think he got really scared and didn't want to get hit so he put up his leg to try to deflect contact. Brady is so so soft...further evidence was when he let the ref tackle him because 52 was coming for his ass.

    He had "malice in his heart", no doubt.

    What a punk.

    Yup so some commentators have just taken to pretending that it never happened and not commenting on it at all.

    Its sickening I was watching ESPN just a few minutes ago listening to the commentators go on about how every bad play was not his fault. Even going to the extent of saying he had not chance to make the first down on that 4th pass to nobody when it appeared that running it would have given him a better chance.

    Here is the truth folks that ESPN is just to chickenshit to say. Brady and Belicheat are both talented guys. To deny that is to diminish your credibility. They are also guys who were aided by knowing what their opponents were going to do secondary to spygate. It took them from good to great and they have NEVER been quite the same since despite superior talent to those teams. But ESPN will never say that ....to busy kissing Brady's posterior

    No doubt in my mind it was intentional on Tommy Ugg's part. I don't think he thought, "Oh, this is Ed Reed coming. I'm going to Rochambeau him." I just think it was a punk-ass reflexive move, worthy of 15 yes, minimum.
    Frustration, fear and failure sometimes exacerbate poor decision making.
    That, plus Tommy Ugg cries more than a Japanese anal porn star.

    Everytime they show this play all they talk about is the botched clock management, and they totally ignore the fact the Brady tried to kick out Reed's knee.

    If Reed's knee had been planted in the turf this would have been a horrible knee-buckling injury.

    If Flacco did what Brady did you would have seen at least 3 flags thrown, the pats always get an advantage from the refs.

    Three flags and probably an ejection from the game!

    I have watched a whole lot of football in my life and have seen literally thousands and thousands of QB slides. I have NEVER seen another QB pull that crap. If Flacco did it I would be critical of him also. It was a punk move regardless of what name was on the back of the jersey

    I agree, I noticed this as well.
