    On the von miller sack and again toward end of game when woodyard (?) got after him to cause the fumble; it seemed like they made an extra effort to target TBs knees.

    Particularly the von miller sack. he went after TB and it seemed to me he didn't need to go low; but he did and then reached up high (around the collar) and then pulled TB back down so that he (v m) would be on top of the lower legs while he pulled the upper body over vm's chest. I didnt think that was a normal approach or how our guys would tackle a qb.

    Then on the brady fumble it looked like the guy was giving some extra-curricular torque to brady's rt knee and that was when the ball came out.

    Just wondering if anyone else thought they saw it that way too; or it's just my homer-conspiracy mind at work.

    They probably were, but I'm glad that Brady is no longer worried about it. The first couple of seasons after that injury, I could tell that he was worried. He isn't worried about it anymore and that's a good thing. Desperate teams will do dirty ***** to win sometimes. It doesn't always work.
