Best hits of all time?

Recommended Posts

How many here have seen a particular Bronco get a safety in OT to win a game in the playoffs? Best hit I've ever seen.

I had the same exact experience. I was hooked as a bronco fan after that.

Von Miller’s strip sack in the SB vs Carolina definitely has to be one of the best hits/defensive plays in Bronco history.

Here is a great summation of classic Bronco hits.  Dennis Smith knocking folks out cold.

Not gonna lie.. a lot of those are really tough to watch now a days. Some great clean hard hits (is there anything more satisfying than the Dumerville Brady sack?!) in there but also a good amount of cringy CTE inducing ones.

For sure.  But you also have to remember a lot of that was in a different era.  And even then as fans if a Broncos player gets a head shot we all scream it’s intentional.  But at the end of the day when you talk about those huge hits it’s guys that are 200-250 pounds running sub 4.60 trying to make split second decisions.

Football is violent.  I hate seeing a guy get knocked out or take a bad hit.  But it will always be a part of the game.

It's pretty hard for me to classify modern day hits. In the 60's and 70's hits that would get you a multigame suspension today happened in every ballgame every weekend.
