New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was nearly decapitated by San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks on Sunday. Whether the hit was legal or not has become a hot topic of debate, but I think we all can agree that Brees got throttled. The hit also happened to lead to one of the best GIFs of the year.
LandThieves.com has presented us with a GIF of Brees chatting with FOX Sports’ Pam Oliver after the game. As you can see, the ruthless hit that Brooks laid on him led to somewhat of a stretched out neck. Brees may want to see a chiropractor this week to get that taken care of.
Between the GIF of Andy Reid as the Kool-Aid guy and now this masterpiece, we may already have our finalists for 2013 NFL GIF of the Year.
