Me, I don't know what to think.
I didn't like it as a former catcher. I know it's a different sport, but cleats up is something that just rubs me the wrong way. I really don't think it was malicious, and what bothers me most is that the way he extended his leg, he was leaving himself susceptible to injury.
Oh well, it is what it is...
He played baseball and should know better than to slide cleats up. Didn't like it.
I didnt like it. But, I think it was a subconscious defensive move. He has been getting a lot of late hits during slides. He was down and had a defender honeing in on him. It wasnt a penalty , so I guess not everybody agreed it was "wrong".
Not a very nice move. I didn't like it. Mostly because I know Brady is going to get blasted for it.
I think he could have gotten injured much worse than anyone who might have run into hom there.
If it keeps Ed Reed from smashing into him with his helmet (like he's done to other players three times this year w/o getting suspended), then I'm OK with it.
So it was dumb AND smart at the same time.
The man is a contradiction.
I agree. In the end, it wasn't smart; but it's a rough game and ***** happens. If the Ravens want to be upset about it, I get it.
Brady isn't athletic
Not a good look, besides if Reed WERE to rough him after he gave himself up we get a clock stoppage, half the distance closer to the GL, and 3 more downs. Sometimes you gotta be willing to absorb that in the case it would happen.
Are we as Patriots fans not the most reasonable?
I've said it a bunch of times already. He played scared and didn't want to get hit. It was the same reason he ran into the ref, and the same reason he didn't try to outrun the Ravens fattest defensive player.
His ****ed up slide and horrendous attempt at a scramble contributed to losing so many seconds at the end of the half.
In a game where 3 guys got helmet to helmet hits all the talk is about Brady sliding with his foot up? I understand the baseball analogy but the guy Brady was sliding into was padded from head to toe. Maybe a penalty/maybe not but the fact the Raverns and media are talking about it after the fact is pretty rediculous. If it was any QB other then Brady it wouldn't be getting any attention at all.
And all the while Belichick sat there dumbfounded on the sideline not thinking himself to call the timeout.
He has a total lack of running ability and didn't want to get hit late again.
I'm sure Belichick will cop to that later.
I agree, both of them screwed the pooch there. They didn't want to risk not getting any points, but Brady has to realize at that point, he has to throw it in the end zone or throw it away.
I've never seen Brady do that before, so I assume it was an accident.
If it was calculated, then I chalk it up to trying to protect himself against the cheap shot thugs he was playing against.
Well, the voice of hypocrisy speaks, it must be wrong. Bernard Pollard Calls Tom Bradyâ€™s Slide â€˜Bull Crap,â€™ Says â€˜Youâ€™ve Got to Keep Them Legs Downâ€™ (Video) | Baltimore Ravens | NESN.com He should have kick him in the jewels. And to anyone saying he should have taken the hit for a penaty. I'd like to see you take Ed Reed pummeling you (again) with only QB gear on.
