Ahmad Brooks' Sack Sparks Debate

Posted Nov 18, 2013

Ahmad Brooks' penalized sack on Drew Brees has sparked a debate around the National Football League.

Agree to disagree.

The passionate fans of the San Francisco 49ers and the rest of the National Football League have bantered back and forth about Sunday's controversial penalty involving Ahmad Brooks. Some say it was a clean, aggressive football play. Others say it went too far.

The 49ers linebacker was flagged for a fourth-quarter sack on Brees that knocked the ball loose and into the arms of Patrick Willis. It could have been a huge swing play in a three-point game. But the 15 yards assessed on the penalty helped the Saints tie the game, one they would eventually win 23-20.
