It's supposedly in that fracas that occurred when Frank fumbled. But in that vid there is no damning evidence imho. I watched this thing 3 times and unless there is something available showing another angle the Bears will get away with one. Not like they didn't anyway.
But as I said I saw an illegal hands penalty that was ticky tack if the Refs had decided to throw it.
I just can't get over the fines for Battle and Brown of 5k each for Facemasking(
) and Brown for Taunting(
) because Battle didn't get flagged for the call that I recall(though I was watching on JTV.com, so could have missed when the league shut down channels) and Brown's flag you can't even see or hear him taunting the player which made it completely laughable.
Goodell needs to be run out of NFL HQ on a rail imho. I don't mind him being proactive. But fines for 2 minor "offenses"?!? Makes you wonder who else got fined through the course of the season and whether or not these fines were even worth the time to levy on the players.
