    The roughing call can be argued...I guess...but this?

    Baltimore pass rusher Terrell Suggs after getting a questionable roughing-the-passer call by referee Ron Winter for brushing against Tom Brady's knee while Suggs was on the ground at New England Sunday. The Ravens spent much of their postgame period with the media biting their tongues so as not to get fined by the league for criticizing Winter's crew after a few ticky-tack calls.

    I love how people are totally ignoring how Suggs purposely dove at Brady's knees. He wasn't blocked and there was no reason for him to be falling that way. If it wasn't for Brady dodging him, it wouldn't have been a "brush" and could have been another potential season ending injury. Total BS.

    I am so tired of Peter King ... really ... he is so irrelevant ... the NFL has passed him by.

    Hey, that is Brady's rule. If it was not invoked for him, for who else they are going to.

    And I absolutely cannot believe the number of jerktards all over the Internets who insist that Suggs was shoved. It couldn't be more clear in the replay that he wasn't even nudged towards Brady.

    I hate people.

    They said that on ESPN tonight too. I re-watched it several times and although Neal's arm did extend it looked like it was all Suggs' momentum - and the reason he only brushed Brady is because Tommy got out of the way; Suggs was aiming dead center for the knee.

    As fans, we need to move on. Nothing we say or believe will change how things are perceived by the non pats fans.

    The players have, I think Brady even made mention of the hit not being intentional.

    Doesn't Peter King live in Boston?
    I somehow think that he feels the need to pile on when it comes to us.

    Of course he piles it on. I can't stand him and haven't read one of his articles since spygate. I just let that blowhard bother me anymore. :D

    Man, imagine if that was Brett Farve's knee Suggs dove at. Suggs would have been banned from NFL and charged with attempted murder in the first degree.

    Peter King is just a like an annoying uncle. Damn stories he comes up with are empty and desperate for attention.

    Peter King definitely wasn't on his game today. Although he corrected his mistake later in the day in the power rankings section on his MMQB, he originally claimed that the Ravens would have scored and won the game on their last play if Clayton held onto the ball . Apparently, there must a special rule rule that in the final seconds of the game you can score a TD by completing a pass on the opponent's 9 yard line.

    I wish I posted his comments from his orginal article before he changed it.

    King has been an assclown since at least '07 when the spy gate story broke. What i found worse was Borges on Sports late night, besides saying the Suggs penalty wasn't justified, he said Brady should be ashamed for turning to the ref. and asking for a flag on such a ticky tack thing.

    I have never been a huge fan of King. For the longest time, he was a Patriots homer and I found it quite boring. Almost as boring as his school girl crush on Brett Favre. Eventhough he is more critical of the Pats, I still find him boring. I basically scan his articles for anything remotely interesting, but I can't read his ramblings all the weay through. I guess I don't need to know about his daughter's field hockey team or the latest from Starbucks. But maybe that is just me.

    King also is a fan of handshakes
    he said the same thing about the rex ryan handshake failing to mention that they talked postgame
    and in harbaugh's case he didnt care to mention this. Wonder why he thinks everyone hates BB just because he sees some quick handshake from a coach who has just lost a tight game.

    It is so exshausting and tiring to hear all these reporters/beat writers try to make up some drama for NFL. I mean I really could not careless about the drama. If I wanted drama, I would be watching soap opera or TNT. Seriously, does football really need this stupid 'OMG HE DIDN'T STARE AT HIS EYES WITH HEART FELT SMILE WHEN SHAKING OPPOSING COACH'S HAND'? Bimbo with triple D breast implant auditoning for Extra can write that crap.

    Wrong. He'd have been subjected to the ultimate sanction on the spot - death.

    OMG I said I was not going to comment any more on this subject but ARE YOU SERIOUS??? He likes to "pile on the Pats??"

    King is the biggest Pats homer alive. Everyone from Boston to LA knows that.

    Unreal.....just unreal.

    That comment made me LOL like nothing I have read in quite a while, thanks for the laugh.

    While I thought the call was correct, it is so difficult to hit quarterbacks "correctly" now.

    I think the Patriots had just as much (if not more) right to argue about in the case of Mike Wright's "blow to the head" of Joe Flacco.

    Coach Belichick was talking about the issue of hitting the QB and in the grasp on his Monday WEEI appearance a couple weeks ago. He kept mentioning the helmet catch play (he called it the "Manning Play") in the Super Bowl where he felt it could have been called in the grasp. His point was it is hard to get the QB down if they don't call in the grasp and they penalize so many hard hits. This was in response to the Adalius roughing penalty a couple weeks ago.

    If only the refs would have called one of the numerous infractions the Giants O line committed on that play, it wouldn't have mattered.

    If it were Vince Wilfork diving at Joe Flacco's knees pretty much everyone would be torching the Patriots as "dirty MFers". With that said, I wouldn't mind seeing someone take a hard shot at Peyton. Payback is a ***** with a capital B.

    He was definitely a homer until Spygate, where he became one of the worst of the worst. Since then, he vacillates back and forth depending upon the national sports zeitgeist.

    I blame the refs.

    It extended because he was trying to HOLD Suggs. If he had been successful, this would be a moot point and the Pats would have been assessed a five yard holding penalty. These guys are just such blind Pats haters that they'll say or do anything to make the Pats look like the bad guys.

    Rodney provided more fuel for this fire with his skirt remark. I know he was kidding, but that remark was just stupid, especially coming from someone whose season was ended by a hit to the knee.

    Not to get too nit-picky, I believe it was Koppen that was trying to block Suggs.
    After watchining replay many times there's no way that Koppen blocked him into Brady. Suggs was balanced, and in control after going by Koppen, and IMO chose to go down at Brady's legs. Correct call.

    No, the rule is pretty clear on that. you touch the helmet, penalty.
