    If Herr Goodell Was Truly Concerned For Player Safety...

    ...he would make an example of Bernard Pollard by suspending him for the Super Bowl...

    Not that I think this will happen, or even should happen...

    I have zero faith in Goodell's sincerity...

    Brady's slide vs. Ravens under review
    Tom Brady could be fined if the NFL believes this slide violated player safety rules.

    NEW YORK (AP)
    The NFL is looking into Tom Brady's leg-up slide that hit Ravens safety Ed Reed in the AFC championship game.


    Brady could be subject to a fine if the league believes he violated any player safety rules.


    During the final minute of the first half, Brady slid at the end of an impromptu run. The quarterback's upraised leg hit the onrushing Reed, who temporarily limped away. Reed was not injured.


    Reed says Brady attempted to apologize this week for the slide.


    ''He actually reached out to me, texted me,'' Reed told WJZ-FM in Baltimore. ''I tried to text him back, but the message exploded after 12 seconds, so I had to call him. ... He's just apologized and what not. But I told him, `You know, it's good, man.'''


    Reed did not believe Brady was trying to hurt him.


    ''I know he's a great player,'' Reed said. ''I respect Brady and his game for all it stands for, and I know he's not a dirty player. And emotions get going in the game.''


    Ravens safety Bernard Pollard said Monday that Brady should be disciplined by the NFL, which levies fines on defensive players for helmet-to-helmet hits.


    ''If you want to keep this going in the right direction, everyone should be penalized for their actions,'' Pollard said, adding Brady ''knew what he was doing.


    ''It has to go both ways. Hopefully the NFL will do something about it. If they don't, that's fine. If they do, then that's fine.''


    Baltimore beat New England 28-13 for the AFC championship Sunday.

    With the intensity in that game I am surprised Reed did not get back up and point a finger @ Brady as a warning. He basically let the whole thing go.

    Pollard didn't do anything illegal. All is fair game on a RB

    I must of missed the hit you were talking about. I thought the only other H2H hit was Ray Lewis on Hernandez and on that it seemed Hernandez lowered his own head right into Lewis....not that it matters as we saw Colt McCoy do the same exact thing...lower his head by 2 feet so Harrison, aiming at his chest, ends up going H2H on him.

    I'm wondering what illegal hit Pollard had that should get him suspended.

    The worst one was Brady's shady slide kick. WTF was that about? Blatant too...

    He is not concerned with player safety. He is concerned that people think he is concerned about player safety.
