12s in is the best shot. He clears the blocker takes 2 steps puts his hand on Neals back then dives not trips into Brady's leg shoulder first (When you trip or lose your balance your legs tend to bend and travel close to the ground not extend and drive off of it). One thing to note is in the first replay his eyes are focused on Brady's knee. It's pretty clear that he was aiming for his knee.

Thanks for the link. This was hard to find on YouTube.
I thought it was a cheap shot when I first saw the game. This video affirms it. Suggs is most definitely diving to break Brady's knee. If I had to guess, it looks like a "bounty" play.
I read King's MMQB and I just cannot believe he thought this was a bad call. In addtion, he said the ga,e was poorly called in favor of the Pats, and that the NBC crew all thought so. Oh yeah? So these five guys all watched the entire Pats/Ravens game by early Sunday night? Bull!
I thougth this was one of the cleaner games called in a while. Every flag was spot-on. There were a few missed flags of course. Naturally, the Ravens DBs were tackling Pats' receivers en route a' la 2007, and a number of those calls were missed. And I saw a few holds at the line by both teams that prevented all-out sacks, that were also not called. But that happens every game. Reffs can't get them all.
Suggs is a thug. He has already been accused earlier this year for cheap shots in other games, and he showed no recalcitrance, remorse or regrets. He is a scummy player.
Shame on the whole Ravens team, starting with the Harbaugh. What an embarrassing bunch. Shame on the talking heads for sympathizing. And shame on the talking heads for doing everything they can to try to diminish the Pats. Meanwhile, last night's MMF crew was giving Favre a virtual BJ. I could have puked!
