NFL: Hit That Hurt Tom Brady Was Clean, Chiefs' Bernard Pollard Won't Be Fined
Some Patriots players -- including Randy Moss -- have already suggested that it was a dirty play, and my own informal survey of Patriots fans indicates that plenty of them agree. But the NFL says otherwise.
Cris Collinsworth reported on NBC's Football Night in America that he had been in touch with the league office, and that the league has already determined that there was nothing dirty or illegal about what Pollard did.
I agree with the league: Pollard came in on a blitz and was blocked by Patriots running back Sammy Morris, and he was just trying to fight through the block -- he wasn't attempting to take out Brady's knee. Pollard's not a dirty player.
