Stu Scott: Next up on Monday Night Countdown, we take a look at one of the more disturbing hits this week when Ahmad Brooks took a shot at Drew Bree…
Ray: This is the most embarrassing call in the National Football League since the tuck rule and Tom Brady. I’m serious. I’ve just never seen this type of insult to defenders. Defenders have a killer instinct to attack. You can’t stop when they’re ready to kill.
Trent: I wouldn’t disagree, I’m personally offended as a quarterback.
Ray: When you do your job, when you make the perfect play – when you look at the hit, Ahmad Brooks took hit him exactly where he was supposed to hit him. First of all, for that to be a flag is embarrassing. Brooks knifed through that line and got a solid hit.

Ray: The second part that’s embarrassing about this is for Drew Brees to say, ‘I got hit so hard I knew it had to be a flag.’ This is the National Football League. I don’t understand what that means. When you get hit like that from the blind side, it’s supposed to hurt! That’s some serious foul play by Drew Brees and the Saints got off easy.
Ray: But I’ll tell you this, if they fine this kid, if they go on record and they fine this kid, Ahmad Brooks, I’ll gonna do something personally. I’m gonna pay half. HALF. Defenders have to be respected as men before anything else. That cost the San Francisco 49ers a complete football game yesterday and could have cost them in the playoffs. The Saints got away with murder.
Stu: Hey, can we get that guy to shut off the power again?
