    Sammy Morris was asked what happened during the play that Brady got injured and here's his response:

    "Pollard came in and as I was trying to let him get back up . . . . "

    Trying to let him get back up? When you have a player down don't you just continue to keep him down? Either continue hitting him or sit on him, but don't "let him get back up" until the play is over.

    Perhaps he didn't want to get called for holding??? I don't know.

    I realize it wasn't intentional and Morris had a great game. I'm just looking to place blame somewhere and by letting the player get back up Brady was injured. Sorry, I'm just venting and that quote struck me weird.

    All these views and only a single response from a troll. Is no one else bothered by that quote? It didn't rub anyone else the wrong way?

    Maybe if he is seriously hurt he'll use one of the three lombardi's to elevate his leg, you know while he get's better.

    I logged in then realized you had answered your own question. Landing on a guy to keep him held down will be called holding, Morris' intent looked like he needed to let Pollard get up just enough to start driving him back again.

    I saw that clip too and I thought Morris was referring to Tom when he made that comment? I'll have to check it again-my first listen didn't set off any alarms.

    I know Moss has commented on the play but it's Sammy's take I was really interested in. In the beginning he indicated it was a dirty play but later on in the interview he tempered that a lot, basically saying "sh*t happens".

    I figured that was the case but in retrospect holding would have been awesome :) Oh well.

    Thanks for you Shmessy for banning that guy.

    I'm sorry to the OP, but to look for blame in what was obviously just a ****ty accident isn't fair to the players. After all, the whole thing happened in a matter of seconds. In hindsight, sure...alot of things could've beeen done differently. However, if you want to point blame on Morris, then why not point blame at Brady for stepping up so far back into the pocket before making his throw?

    Either way, it was an accident, which is obvious. If Brady is out for the remainder of the season, then so be it, he's out. We can't change that and neither can anyome else on the team.

    Let's all just wait this out, not point out every rumor on the web, and just wait for an official release. No matter what though, Im a patriots fan first and a tom brady fan second. Let's just keep these wins comin'.

    I've seen this team win it all with less.
