Ahmad Brooks records best encroachment penalty ever
Ahmad Brooks recorded the most amusing encroachment penalty of all time.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The 49ers have done a stupendous job of keeping the Panthers out of the red zone in the Divisional Round matchup, which is the only reason Carolina's not up more than 10-6. But Ahmad Brooks did make one huge, tiny mistake in the red zone.
Trying to time a snap near the goal line, Brooks jumped before Cam Newton could snap the ball. I think this may be against the rules of football.
There's a lot to love here, particularly the Panthers offensive line basically staying perfectly still. But don't sleep on Newton's ability to sell Brooks hitting him.
Newton's lucky he doesn't play in the NBA. Otherwise he'd be hearing from Adam Silver.
Cam will be hearing from league offices. flop warning hahahaha— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) January 12, 2014
It was actually a really heads-up thing for Cam to do. If he draws a personal foul flag from Brooks on that play, it would be half the distance ot the goal line and an automatic first down for Carolina.
