Yesterday, Bernard Pollard implied that Tom Brady should be fined for kicking Ed Reed in the umm groin area on a slide. Today, it appears as if the NFL is looking into it. JUST IN - Tom Brady is being reviewed by league officials for his slide/kick in AFC Championship (via @edwerderespn) — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) January 22, 2013 To me, it looked completely accidental. Brady was sliding down but had too many defenders around him to get all the way down, thus that weird slide with his foot heading straight for Reed. I'm not really sure there's any evidence of intent here. A lot of Patriots fans were crying for Pollard to be fined for his hit on Stevan Ridley. The hit knocked Ridley - and the ball - out and he did not return to the game. That hit, however, was legal since Ridley was a runner and not defenseless. Still, ironic that Brady could get fined for something that had no impact on Reed or the game. While Pollard's hit to the helmet is fine. Legal, but ironic.
