Default Ten hardest hits in the Super Bowl

Ten hardest hits in the Super Bowl


Posted Jan. 25, 2010 @ 10:13 a.m.
By Bob McGinn




1. Ronnie Lott, S, 49ers, XXIII: Furious at his teammates for not playing better, Lott takes matters into his own hands. From deep in the middle, he charges up and crashes into Bengals RB Ickey Woods. "It was like a train wreck, or two rhinos hitting each other full force," 49ers CB Eric Wright said. "That hit set the standard for us."


2. Jack Tatum, S, Raiders, XI: Early in the fourth quarter, WR Sammy White hauls in an 18-yard pass from Fran Tarkenton. Tatum hits White under the chin with his helmet, sending White's helmet flying. White hangs onto the ball. "Tatum knocked him out," Oakland LB Ted Hendricks said. "I've got a great picture of that."


3. Larry Cole, DT, Cowboys, X: Terry Bradshaw's last pass is the game-winning 64-yard touchdown to Lynn Swann with 3:02 left. On the play, Cole drives his helmet into the left side of Bradshaw's jaw, and the quarterback is out before he hits the ground. Backup Terry Hanratty plays the last series for Pittsburgh.


4. Glen Edwards, S, Steelers, IX: Late in the first half, Fran Tarkenton throws on target 20 yards downfield to WR John Gilliam at the Pittsburgh 4-yard line. Edwards delivers a two-armed shot to Gilliam's head. When the tipped pass comes down, it's intercepted by CB Mel Blount.


5. Nick Buoniconti, LB, Dolphins, VIII: With a minute left in the first half, Vikings RB Oscar Reed tries to run off right tackle on fourth and 1 from the Miami 6. Buoniconti cuts inside of pulling guard Ed White, crushes Reed, and causes a fumble.


6. Doug Swift, LB, Dolphins, VII: On a Washington third down late in the first half, the Dolphins line up LB Bob Matheson outside and Swift inside. When the Redskins turn their protection toward Matheson, Swift shoots through untouched and buries QB Billy Kilmer, whose pass in the flat is intercepted by Nick Buoniconti.


7. Martin Mayhew, CB, Redskins, XXVI: Early in the fourth quarter, Jim Kelly scrambles to his right for 9 yards and is unloaded upon by Mayhew. Kelly appears to be out. He sits out a play and then returns, but his memory seems to be spotty after the game.


8. Bob Sanders, S, Colts, XLI: On a simple run up the middle by Bears RB Cedric Benson late in the first quarter, Sanders roars up from the deep middle and flattens Benson with a form tackle. The Colts recover the fumble, and it's the beginning of the end for the Bears.


9. Aaron Brown, DE, chefs, IV: With about five minutes left, Brown, a second-year starter, comes around the edge and slams Vikings QB Joe Kapp, causing a fumble that the Vikings recover. It is Kapp's final play of the game.


10. Ken Norton, LB, Cowboys, XXVII: On third and goal from the Dallas 1, Buffalo RB Kenneth Davis tries to run high against Norton, but the linebacker doesn't budge an inch. On the next series, Norton leaps over Thurman Thomas and hits Jim Kelly, forcing him from the game with a sprained knee.

The Atwater hit should easily be in the top ten Super Bowl hits.

Yet again, Steve Atwater is passed over. Knocked out 3 people (including himself) in one hit!

It should be number 1.

The top ten list above has been denied.

It's a pretty hard hit, but it's on his own guy. I don't really see how that makes a top ten list.

I would also have voted for Romanowski's sack on Falcons QB Chris Chandler in the next SB. Romo leveled Chandler out parallel to the ground and planted him hard. Up til that point, the Falcons' first drive had moved easily down the field. Chandler stayed in the game, but the Falcons never recovered their momentum.

Atwater set the tone in that Super Bowl vs the Packers. I distinctly remember hearing pads crack on almost every tackle he made. He played like a man possessed that game.

Damn I miss him.

Take a closer look at Robert Brooks hand and multiple dislocated fingers before assessing damage on Hilliard alone. He made sure Brooks wouldn't be catching that pass.

I was thinking the same thing! Blind sided him, then taunting him as Davis ran towards the goal line to get the go ahead score. Maybe top 10 block but that hit was sweet.

I was thinking of that one also. Romo charged through that line, straight up the middle and planted Chandler. It was great.

I have to agree. If he hits the Packers player instead of his own, it's the best hit ever.
