The NFL’s decision to fine Jerramy Stevens seemed defensible based on the unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty for head-butting Stuart Schweigert. I just never saw compelling visual evidence suggesting Stevens tried to strike Tyler Brayton with a knee to the groin, as the NFL alleged. I’ve watched the play probably 20 times from start to finish. ESPN’s replays showed the entire fracas, and then some. There was a point when Stevens’ leg raised off the ground, but it appeared he was merely off-balance while tangling with Brayton. I could see no intent to deliver such a blow. However, another part of me thinks Brayton probably thought Stevens had made such an attempt. This would explain why Brayton would suddenly strike Stevens so blatantly. The league surely watched the play from additional angles available on the coaches’ video shot from above the end zone. Perhaps another angle showed more than what we could see on TV.
