But replays tell the truth. No doubt about it. Kimo went for that leg.
Palmer's leg is the only thing he could possibly tackle after being blocked down and in toward said leg. Kimo didn't TARGET the knee. That's what you fail to understand. In fact, until the offensive lineman blocked him down and in, he wasn't even going in that direction.
A number of things had to go terribly wrong for Palmer's knee to pop. All of it did. None of it late, negligent, or intentional.
