How many of these hits would be legal in today's NFL?


LINK

I would say about 10% or maybe even lower than that.

Horse colar
Unnecessary Roughness

The hardest hits I've ever seen on TV are not recorded. They were by Dick Butkus in his first years in the NFL. Brutal stuff.

@11:20 - Former Tiger Leonard Marshall taking down Montana. Big play in that game. Montana broke a bone in his hand on the play.

Dude, I've been drinking the kool-aid lately that football has gotten way more violent/players have gotten stronger/pads are turning players into missiles/etc., but after watching that video, it's clear that all those media narratives are complete bull shite. What I just watched was straight up carnage. Those guys were fricking insane. Players today look like absolute pussies compared to that. Crazy...

All of the hits on QBs would be illegal

All of the hits above the waste on pass catchers would be illegal

All of the hits near the sideline would be illegal

The worst part about those hits is the lack of padding they had back then that players have today. Those hits had to hurt at least three times as much as hits do now

That shite was fricking awesome. I forgot how much I miss seeing some of those type of hits.

And yeah, lot of brain damage and the game needed to change. But I can still enjoy the violence of those old school use the crown of the helmet as a weapon and lead with a forearm to the head when possible type of hits as well.
