It was a bad call.
Brooks hit on Brees was violent, but legal. With that being said, 49ers had opportunities after that to win the game and made a bunch of crucial mental errors.
I understand Brooks frustrations though.
“I didn’t hit him with my hand or my helmet,” Brooks said. “I basically bear-hugged him. That’s just how football is played. I think this s— is bull—-. Football, the way they call stuff these days, it’s watered down. It ain’t real no more.”
“It was at home,” Brooks said. “It was Drew Brees. And maybe the officials were for the New Orleans Saints a little bit more than the 49ers. I think it’s B.S., man.”
