SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- On Tuesday, I wrote about the NFL's issue on whether to fine San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks for a controversial -- and game-changing -- hit on New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees.On Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the NFL fined Brooks $15,750 for the hit.During Sunday's game, the 49ers appeared to get the ball on a turnover with about three minutes to go, but Brooks was called for a personal foul for a hit to Brees' neck.
