re: How many of these hits would be legal in today's NFL?Posted by MI LSU on 11/14/12 at 8:46 pm to Bench McElroy
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...
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.
