I hope it's big one.

He was livid. If Brady* would have been hit like that, the guy would have been ejected.

not only would he have been ejected from the game, goodell would have then suspended indefinately also .

i dont think i have ever seen ben get that peed about being hit, good to know that he has some fire in him, i would put my money on ben beating the dude down though

I agree with you a 100%. Ben probably gets hit like this more than once a game and hardly any of them are ever called, but they would be called on Brady or Manning. And that's what they all say too because Ben is so tough.
I hope the guy gets a huge fine for this

Somebody with mean intentions misses Brady and there is still a flag.

Ben is just one tough hombre. He's like one of those punch clowns where you knock him down and he bounces right back. Must frustrate the living shit out of opposing D's.

I haven't heard anything about a fine, but dude definitely should have one levied on him. That was as CHEAP as it gets.
