A vicious collision between San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson and fellow defensive back Tarell Brown during the NFC Championship game against the New York Giants left Brown sprawled out in the middle of the field before he was assisted off the field.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw the ball in the direction of his wide-out Hakeem Nicks when the two 49ers players both dove towards the errant pass and met each other helmet-to-chest.
Goldson rolled over the prone Brown— who was lying on his back motionless on the ground.
A medical team surrounded Brown as Goldson nervously watched his teammate from the sidelines. Brown sat up after a few minutes, refused the services of a stretcher and was assisted off the field by two men. He later walked unassisted to the locker room for observation.
The Giants should consider themselves lucky because it looked like an easy INT if the two players didn't crash into each other.
The nasty smash-up occurred with a minute left in the 3rd quarter with the 49ers leading, 14-10, in the defensive tug-of-war.
The 49ers fell one game short of playing the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Wait let me rephrase that, Kyle Williams muffed two punts to keep the 49ers from going to play the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

The rest of his winter will be most unpleasant. How does a player come back...

Does ESPN have an East Coast bias?
Not really if you believe Deadspin. The San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh made headlines -- on the West Coast only presumably -- early in the NFL season when he complained that the NFL Network and ESPN did not cover his team despite its early success.
Deadspin tracked what teams, athletes and sports ESPN mentioned the most in its 11...
