In case you missed it, here's a replay of Ravens linebacker Antwan Barnes' hit on Eagles punter Sav Rocca in Monday's game that's making the rounds on the Internet. I believe the Eagles' TV analyst taking exception to Barnes' shot was former Philadelphia linebacker and Pro Bowl special teamer Ike Reese.

Luckily, the Eagles didn't follow Reese's suggestion about what to do in retaliation considering how much kicker Matt Stover or even punter Sam Koch means to the Ravens. Rocca is a former Aussie Rules footballer who is making a bid for an NFL job. It's a good thing Buddy Ryan wasn't on the other sideline for anyone with a long memory regarding a famous Thanksgiving Day incident involving Buddy, who was once the Eagles coach, and Dallas kicker Luis Zendejas. Ryan was accused of putting a bounty on Zendejas, who was knocked silly on a kickoff. For the record, the penalty on the play here was against an Eagle for shoving Barnes.
