The Brady Slide
Tom Brady hasn't been immune to controversy, some of his own doing, some from others. Here's a look at some of the more memorable moments, beginning with the quarterback's cleats up slide in the 2013 AFC Championship Game against Baltimore that drew a $10,000 fine from the NFL. Late in the first half of that home game, Brady slid to avoid a hit from Ravens safety Ed Reed with his right foot high and cleats exposed to Reed, almost like a baseball player breaking up a double play. "You've got to keep the legs down," Ravens safety Bernard Pollard told Comcast SportsNet New England. "We all know and understand what's going on there. And as a quarterback, when you go to slide, we're taught ... we can't do anything. When you come sliding, and your leg is up in the air trying to kick somebody, that's bull crap."
