You make the call: Was Tom Brady's punt a classless move?
Tom Brady was unquestionably great against the Denver Broncos on Saturday night. He threw for a record-tying 6 touchdowns and had his way with the Denver defense the entire game. Oh, and he also was the game's leading punter with a 48 yards-per-punt average.
Yes, you read that correctly. Up 45-10, on 3rd and 10 with a little more than 3 minutes left in the game, Brady unleashed a 48-yard booming punt, pinning the Broncos back at their own 10-yard line.
Broncos rookie linebacker Von Miller was clearly upset, and responded with a pretty clear cheap shot on Patriots center Dan Connolly. Both Miller and defensive end Robert Ayers were flagged after the ensuing scrum, and the Broncos wound up starting the drive at the 5 yard line.
Obviously the Broncos were frustrated at the way the the game was going, and the punt was the straw that broke the camel's back. Even some Patriots fans are saying it was a typical, Belichickian move without any class at all.
Was Miller right to lash out at the Patriots? Was the punt a classless act, or just another genius scheme? What's your take?
Bonus: Here are all 6 of Brady's touchdown passes. Enjoy.
