Mike Mitchell to Drew Brees: "Stop being soft" | ProFootballTalk

20
Bulletin board material in two weeks? I think so. Mike Mitchell clearly doesn't understand or care to understand current NFL rules. His description of the Brooks hit on Brees shows he has no idea what he's talking about. ____________________________________________________________ "The thing that I hated about the play, the whole thing, and this is what these offensive guys are doing, they’re kind of running with it," Mitchell said. "Drew Brees is throwing a fit in the post-game interview saying how he got hit in the chin and he was dazed, and all this other stuff. And it’s like, dude, the replay clearly shows he did not even touch you in the chin. "Stop being soft, get up off the ground," Mitchell said. "You fumbled the football, that’s why the only reason you were acting like you were hurt, is so you could draw a flag." Mitchell predicts that receivers and quarterbacks will "roll around on the ground" in an effort to get a flag, and he’d like to see the NFL implement a flopping rule. "You saw the play with Drew Brees," Mitchell said. "He did not get hit in the chin. He got hit hard, which he should have got hit hard because we are playing full speed tackle football. And he fumbled the football. And I think that’s really was the reason he was down so long. He was really trying to sell that and trying to get a flag. And obviously it worked, and their team was able to steal a win because of that play."
