well that's just, like, your opinion, man
Ball carriers and footballs alike rejoice today as former Bear and Panther Charles Tillman has called it a career. As a Bears fan he was amazing - his nickname "Peanut" lending itself to the "Peanut Punch". He forced more fumbles as a DB than anyone over his time in the league (43, to the next closest, Charles Woodson's 24).
One of the awesome things every time the Bears played the Lions was seeing Peanut go up against Calvin Johnson. I think they battled better than most and had some serious respect for each other. There's some great writeup on their battles here: https://www.profootballfocus.com/charles-tillman-trapped-within-not-made-by-zone-scheme/
Over two games, the Lions threw at Megatron 14 times with Tillman in primary coverage. Johnson caught five passes for 70 yards. Tillman got his hands to four of them, and was in position for another but it was picked off by safety Chris Conte. He was flagged once for defensive pass interference down by the goal line on a play that didn’t look much different to half of the other physical encounters the two players engaged in over those games.
Anyone else really miss football?

The gist of the articles is what most here believe - Tom Brady didn't intend to break the rules, didn't instruct anyone to break the rules, and likely didn't actually break the rules. All arguments made before, but in the inimitable Poz style.
