The part I don't like was that the Pats were rewarded for the hit. The play was ruled a catch, but was challenged and overturned. Well it wasn't a catch because of an illegal helmet-to-helmet, but that can't be reviewed.
So Pats get both the incompletion and knock Ward out of the game, ending his consecutive games with a catch streak.
While it didn't have the ferocity, it was just as illegal if not more so than Harrison's hit on Massequoi.
Yeah, that was the most infuriating thing for me. I would have liked to punch Belichick in the face-- only BB would have the audacity to have the refs watch that in slo-mo. And of course, why not? The league will pretend this never happened.
Goodell will never come down on that asshole. Billy must have film of Goodell doing something really shameful.
