i know its a little late to bring this up....but watching a replay, i thought...man that was dirty, he basically bear-crawled into griese's knee...

anyone else think different?

EDIT: sorry mods, thought i was in the game commentary forum....if it needs to be moved, please do so...

No..It was definitely not a cheap shot.

Thomas tripped over someone in the pile and was falling and made the tackle towards his legs. It's football anyways..The idea is to take the QB down. He just got him in a bad spot. It was clearly unintentional in my opinion.

I think Pittman went for the typical RB block, low at the legs, and Thomas tripped and rolled into him

I didn't think it was intentional but all I saw was the highlight of the hit. I would view this as just wrong place at the wrong time for Griese.

Or to try to trick the ref into thinking it was an accident...

The person that says that they didn't do it...usually did it. I point you to the famous proverb: "Thou who hath denied it, supplied it."
