Found November 25, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley was ejected in the fourth quarter of Sunday's NFL game in the Superdome for kicking San Francisco 49ers offensive guard Alex Boone in the head. Boone was on the ground after a Niners field goal was blocked, while Bunkley stood over him and kicked him in the back of the head as he was getting up. In addition to being ejected, Bunkley will likely face a fine and/or suspension. GIF via TheBigLead. H/T Cosby.

Video: Saints' Brodrick Bunkley ejected after kicking opponent in head

 Is it just me or has there been a spike in unsportsmanlike behavior in the NFL this season? New Orleans Saints lineman Brodrick Bunkley attempted to one-up Ndamukong Suh's groin kick on Thanksgiving by delivering a little swift kick of his own on Sunday. Watch as the former first round draft pick takes out his anger on San Francisco's Alex Boone by booting him in the back...

Saints schedule could doom playoff chances

You have to give credit where credit is due and the New Orleans Saints have found a way to dig themselves out of a 0-4 hole and crawled back to a respectable record. The playoffs aren’t out of the question for Drew Brees and company, but a brutal schedule could leave the Saints on the outside looking in. With only a handful of games remaining, the Saints are only one game out of...

Drew Brees feels Saints defense is coming together at the right time

New Orleans started out the season at 0-4 and has fought back to a 5-5 record, a three-game winning streak, and winning five of its last six games. The fallout from bounty gate is slowing going away, and the Saints are getting their groove back. Sunday the Saints have their biggest game of the year against the San Francisco 49ers. Drew Brees has thrown for 3,066 yards and 28...

Vernon Davis wants Alex Smith to start

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to commit to either Colin Kaepernick or Alex Smith as the team's starting quarterback.  Tight end Vernon Davis thinks Alex Smith should be the one under center. "It's difficult, but I think Alex is still the man," Davis said after Kaepernick led the 49ers to a 31-21 victory over the New Orleans Saints. "In my...

Marques Colston Flips and Lands on His Head

Marques Colston went up for a pass during the Saints game against the 49ers and landed right on his head/neck after getting undercut by a defender..  Not a very good looking play for Colston.  Colston went into the locker room after walking off the field under his own power.  He later came back into the game and continued to play.  Real man's game right there.  The Saints...

Marques Colston lands on his head after hit by 49ers defender (Video)

I'm still trying to figure out how New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston didn't end up seriously injuring himself on this brutal hit from yesterday's Saints/49ers game. The incident happened in the third quarter of play as Colston was hit low by 49ers safety DaShon Goldson and was sent helmet first into the Superdome turf: Thankfully for Marques...

Colin Kaepernick’s Big Play Potential Fun to Watch, But 49ers’ Quarterback Controversy Not Worth Gamble

Jim Harbaugh already gambled in going with Colin Kaepernick over Alex Smith on Sunday. He now has to decide whether to let his winnings ride, although it might not be long before the 49ers head coach realizes the best course of action would have been to avoid the table completely. Kaepernick has shown in his two starts that he has the potential to be an electric player in the NFL...

49ers QBs still in limbo

Jim Harbaugh has watched each of his two quarterbacks lead the San Francisco 49ers to big wins in hostile, road environments - Alex Smith in the season opener at Green Bay's Lambeau Field back in September among others, and Colin Kaepernick on Sunday at the New Orleans Superdome. Which one gets the ball on Sunday when the 49ers travel to St. Louis? Harbaugh is still mum on that...

Colin Kaepernick Stands Out Against Saints

Niners sting Saints with convincing 31-21 win

With Colin Kaepernick again effectively leading the offense and a defense that got downright offensive on its own, the 49ers were simply too much for a hot New Orleans team on Sunday afternoon, taking control after halftime on the way to a convincing 31-21 victory over the Saints at the Superdome.

Brodrick Bunkley’s Non Suspension Suggests NFL is More Concerned With Public Relations Than Preventing Injuries

With all the talk of helmet-to-helmet hits, concussions and long-term disability, regular football on-the-field violence just seems so mundane, doesn’t it? It’s absolutely true that concussions have become the sexy injury in sports — so to speak — and certainly the sexy topic in terms of the safety of athletes. For years there had been stories about the challenges NFL players...

Talking #Broncos and #49ers on Twitter

On Wednesday, I declared that Denver’s Von Miller was a more complete player than San Francisco’s Aldon Smith. Later that evening, a 49ers fan, @CHerrera1106 on Twitter, responded to my proclamation.  Unfortunately, Chris’s mentions remained unnoticed on my Twitter feed until Saturday morning.  Fortunately, I was able to respond to Chris on Saturday evening, starting a...
