Illegal late hits on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the key to the Broncos winning and heading to the Super Bowl, according to former Denver QB Danny Kannell, who’s now an ESPN Radio host.
It’s all about setting the tone, and if you get a few penalties on the way, it’s for good cause.
“Like, they’ve been talking about him crying, I almost feel like this is the type of game where you have to send a message like in the first and second quarter, the first half, hit him a couple of times where it’s a little past the whistle. Like, let him know you’re around. Get those knock downs, get those hits on him, make him aware that you’re coming after him.”
Kannell also said he wasn’t advocating injuring Brady, just sending him a message.
