I read another interesting Whitlock article today.
In the fourth quarter of the same game, with the Colts trailing by nine points, Philly’s Trent Cole beat Indy’s left tackle and executed the perfect tomahawk-chop sack/strip on fourth-and-18. Game over.
A ref flagged Cole for unnecessary roughness. Cole’s hand hit the back of Manning’s helmet as he chopped down on the ****ed football. The penalty gave Indy a first down. The Colts scored a touchdown, cutting Philly’s lead to 26-24.
So tell me, how is that play somehow worse than Ben getting hit in the ****ing face hard enough to break his nose?
I guess we can at least take a little comfort in knowing that this bullshit isn't going unnoticed. Don't expect it to change though.
