    Yes, Brate should have caught that pass just like Kenny Bell should have caught his when he took a wicked hit. No excuses for that either. Hold on to the damn ball.
    As for the hit on Brate, I hope that guy gets hit with a wicked heavy fine by the NFL. He was definitely head hunting and in a meaningless preseason game at that. What a low life scum sucking pig of a player. That was the kind of hit that can not only end a career but paralyze a player as well and it was intentional.

      I agree Dick wad move. Fine that f***er. I think Brate actually had two 15 yard penalties called from players that committed personal fouls on him that night.
