Found November 27, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
Just when you thought that the 49ers have maybe moved on from that dubious personal foul call on Ahmad Brooks for his tackle on Drew Brees that cost them a win, here’s Donte Whitner refusing to move on, drumming up more controversy. Brooks’ penalty subsequently led to a $15,750 fine (he’s appealing), which a couple ESPN talking heads offered to help pay. The Player (Hopefully) Soon To Be Known As Hitner was hit with $21,000 by the league for a vicious hit this year (he’s also appealing), so if there’s anybody who can empathize with Brooks, it’s him. Here he is Wednesday sounding off on the Brees, via the Sac Bee: “He did everything he’s supposed to do,” Whitner said of Brooks. “It’s not his fault that Drew Brees is a little guy and can’t really take a hit. But that’s football. And (that play) really would have won the football game. With three minutes left in the game, if we get one first down … Even if we have to punt, we feel we would have won that football game. We feel like it
