    For me it was and always will be the Atwater/Okoye hit because of the aura of invincibility that Okoye had at the time. Was the biggest back in the league at the time and was a tank, comes to Denver and gets blown up by Atwater.

        If you're old enough to know the backstory to Okoye - was growing up during that time and knew who/what he was about then you'd agree Atwater all the way. Just clicking the link and seeing 2 hits doesn't tell the whole story.

        Loved watching Smith knock Potts out but as far as "impressive".....Atwater.

            The Potts/Smith hit makes me physically ill now... both men did damage to their brains on that hit that will last a lifetime.....

                I love Atwater's hit but for just pure collision power I give it to Smith. Smith put him down. Okoye was surprised and popped back up. Potts couldn't walk straight after.

                  Atwaters hit looks more impressive to me. Okoye was just gigantic.

                        That Ed block is just like the Kenny Bell block that resulted in a 15 yard flag.

                          That Eddie Mac block was huge. it's possible that hit would have drawn a 15-yard flag for hitting too hard, then had him ejected for taunting, and finally cited for committing a hate crime these days.

                              Atwater taking down the Nigerian Nightmare is one of my favorite football plays. It gets my vote.
