Oh it was obvious too, this was a no brainer call, I have no idea what was going on that game. Are you telling me, that a guy like Brady gets TAPPED on his ankle, and gets a flag? Favre got hit 15 times! Sacked once I believe? And, there was not one flag thrown in that area!
I guarantee you, if the same thing happens to Manning, players will not be getting away with in, it was the NFL's agenda that day to try and get the Saints in the SB.
Oh they got Hargrove with a roughing the passer when he came in and lifted Favre off the ground and smashed him into the turf. Troy Gay Boy Aikman was stating that was a legal hit and the refs were smoking something for calling that. What gives. Joe Buck agreed with the refs on that particular play.
But yeah, Favre looked like he was in a boxing match, his face all bruised up during the post game press conference. If I was Childress I would have told my D to lay in a few late hits on Brees to give the Saints a taste of their own dirty medicine.
