Best Hit of the Week, Hands Down

Zack Follett. Danny Amendola. Awesome hit. Must watch: That’s what happens when you put an aggressive, rookie linebacker who was a 7th round pick desperate to make the team, on special teams. And that’s what happens when he gets a clear path to a much smaller, rookie returner. Ouch. Talk about living a car crash,…Read More

Video: Ray Lewis Hits Ahmard Hall, Knocks His Helmet Off

Ray Lewis may be 33 and in his 13th year as a pro, but there’s no doubt he hasn’t lost much over the years. As if you needed confirmation, Lewis sent a message with this bone-crushing hit on Ahmard Hall of the Titans in their playoff game. Fasten your seatbelt for this one: It was…Read More

Video: Major Wright Major Hit on Manny Johnson in First Quarter

I’d like to say this hit set the tone for the game but that really wouldn’t be accurate considering it wasn’t much of a hard-hitting contest. Instead, I’ll just be satisfied to say this was probably the hardest hit of the game. Florida safety Major Wright displayed exquisite timing on this play when he crushed…Read More

Video: Tavaris Jackson Hit by Chris Clemons After Interception, Ouch

Video: Jeff Garcia Hit by Quentin Jammer, Gets Face Bloodied

There’s a reason I had picked the Buccaneers to win this game, and Jeff Garcia was a big factor in that decision. I said his playmaking ability and desire to win would be a difference. That didn’t exactly turn out to be the case, but Garcia showed once again that he’s one of the tougher…Read More

Video: Santonio Holmes Hit by Chris Crocker, Comes Up Woozy

I’ve posted lots of big hits here on the site, but I really feel bad for Santonio Holmes when I post this. He got crushed. Lit up. De-cleated. Destroyed. You could see how woozy he was after he got up from the shot, his legs all wobbly like he just took a combination from Mike…Read More

Takeo Spikes: NFL Getting Carried Away With Fines for Defensive Players

I’m all for penalizing unnecessary roughness on the football field and discouraging late hits or helmet-to-helmet hits, but I believe the NFL has become too aggressive in doling out fines to defensive players. Take for instance the fine on Eric Smith of the Jets. Smith was just laying a normal hit on Anquan Boldin of…Read More
