Is it me or do the Pats get fined for every penalty they commit?
Re: Mankins Fined
posted at 10/16/2009 3:13 PM EDTMy comment on the Mankins penalty is this; although he did commit a late hit after the play was dead, my feeling is that Mankins has earned some additional respect in the locker room as he was protecting the running back (Faulk) who was down and getting his leg twisted by the Denver defender. The Denver player was getting in a cheap shot and I think Mankins reacted instinctively, although illegall.
