    On Sunday, Saints defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley kicked 49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone in the back of the helmet. "That's out of character for Brodrick Bunkley. It really is. With all the folderol about whether Ndamukong Suh did or did not kick Matt Schaub in the man-parts during the Houston Texans' overtime win over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving day, the move that New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley put on San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone on Sunday might slip under the radar.  But it really shouldn't. Boone was flagged and ejected for the maneuver, which occurred with 65 second remaining in the game. Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt, who had warned his players all week to keep from getting chippy in the rematch of the game that bounced the Saints from the 2011 playoffs, was less than happy with Bunkley's response. With 1:13 left in San Francisco's eventual 31-21 win, the 49ers were set up to kick a 33-yard field goal, but the attempt was blocked by Saints cornerback Malcolm Jenkins. The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the league has not announced any punishment and a fine is still possible later in the week.
