Response to Upton (Reply #2)

5. Did either of you actually look at the gif?

The tackle is high with the upper part of the arm striking the neck before the elbow and lower arm strike the upper chest and the right hand grasps the shoulder. This tackle forces Brees neck to hyper-extend.

A clothesline does not need to be passive with the offender just sticking his arm out to catch a running player. The tackle you have pictured is highly dangerous and was rightly penalised.
