“I don’t know,” Reed told the media when asked he he thought he will be punished by the league. “I don’t know what is going to come of it. I had the referee whispering into my ear on the second play. All I like to do is play the game.”
Fans have argued that the game is too soft and that those that hit like Reed are being targeted, but it doesn’t matter. The rule changes have been implemented and Reed continues to break them. Whether you agree or disagree with the rules, Reed has to abide by them if he wants to stay on the field.
“I don’t really know what to do with it. I don’t really know what to do with that. I thought it was a decent hit. He [Victor Cruz] got up from it. I think Cruz got up.”
For what it’s worth, Cruz told reporters after the game that he thought Reed’s hit was legal. However, Ryan Clark thought Reed’s hit on Sanders’ was too.
