Ray Lewis on Ahmad Brooks penalty: I’ve just never seen this type of insult to defenders

Nov 18, 2013 at 8:53 PM--



On Monday Night Countdown, former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis gave his opinion on the penalty against 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks during his sack of Saints quarterback Drew Brees. The call cost likely cost the 49ers a crucial win. Lewis called the penalty "the most embarrassing call in the National Football League since the 'tuck rule'."

While holding up an American Express card, Lewis would go on to say that if Ahmad Brooks is fined by the league for that hit, he would pay half of the fine.

The former coach didn't hold any punches and slammed the second-year player. "I've never seen anything about this kid that was encouraging at all," Martz said, per Alex Espinoza of 95.7 The Game.
