Still, with the Niners managing to take home the victory, I'm glad it wasn't called - one less thing for the losing team to gripe about.
If there were no timeout, this would have been a delay of game penalty (5 yds). I guess the ref decided (or actually heard what Brady was screaming) that Brady's little tantrum wasn't directed at him.
