Obviously, those of us here at the Pride of Detroit don't think much of a young punk who thinks it fair game to take a cheap shot at our quarterback during an interception return. I was interested to see what this 4th round pick from Vanderbilt had to say, and he did not disappoint.
"You can't just go to my head and try to end my career like that," Moore told CSN Chicago after the game.
I only saw one player attempting to alter the career span of another player on that play, and that was Moore taking a running start and aiming for Stafford's head well after the play was blown dead.
Admittedly, Nick Fairley had taken a cheap shot at Jay Cutler, driving him into the ground in the end zone on the previous drive. However, Chicago raised the stakes when Lance Briggs went high on Calvin Johnson, leaving Johnson stunned on the turf for a moment. Calvin, in post-game interviews, said that he had gotten his "bell rung a little bit. Neither was this the first time the Bears targeted Megatron. The fumble on the Lions' first drive caused by Julius Peppers would probably more appropriately been flagged as a person foul.
I'll be interested to see how the fines come down regarding the fight on the field, but as far as "dirty" goes, I think we can give the award to the Bears this week.
