    In regards to the talk about the late great Darryl Stingley which I can honestly say was the WORST hit ever given to a Patriots player on an NFL field can you give an opinion on what you think was the biggest hit ever laid out by a Patriots player on another teams player?

    Did the hit require a stretcher for the injured player and what game/year it was and was it a hit that put the player on IR? -Thanks

    Asante Samuel's hit on Wayne or Stokley

    Also had 1 against Putzier, Ricky Williams

    Colvin destroyed Pennington in playoffs i believe

    ^not biggest but honorable mentions of recent ones

    um they didnt require stretcher but required a few tissues

    Samuel had the hit on Stokely, Wilson had the hit on Wayne.

    Both were brutal.

    I remember one hit by Andre Tippett on Bill's QB Joe Ferguson that was vicious. The hit knock him out for few games.

    That one where he bounces Frye on his head is pretty nasty.

    I remember a blind side blitz by Patriots Linebacker Steve King who hit John Hadl of The Rams in the pit of the back and knocked Him out cold.It was the hardeset hit that I have ever seen.

    Re: What was the hardest,most vicious hit ever laid out by a Patriots player in a gam

    The Bryan Cox hit on WR Jerome Pathon of the Colts was a memorable one. IIRC, that was in '01.

    Tebucky's hit in the SB vs a Rams WR, occured in the first offensive series -- which definately set the tone the rest of the game, sending the strong message that the Pats came to play.

    There must be a Rodney highlight hit in there somewhere (probably a late one :D).

    Re: What was the hardest,most vicious hit ever laid out by a Patriots player in a gam

    here is one that is kind of out of nowhere but when TBC was a rookie I had high hopes for him being a converted DE who I was hoping would develope and he was PUPed for the first half of the year, it was his first game and he was playing STs and he flew down and nailed the returner full speed. I dont know if it was the hit or the excitement of his first hit but that was as loud as I remeber yelling after a hit. I yelled hell yeah Tully and my college roomate was like why you yelling so hard and who the hell is tully. He laughed pretty hard at me when I told him he was a 7th round pick playing his first game.

    1. Tebucky Jones on lamar Smith in pats/dolphins game at Foxboro (dec 01) caused a fumble inside the 5 recovered by patriots.
    2. Marvcus Patton on Drew Bledsoe (Nov 93) bent Bledsoe backwards on a scramble up the middle.

    3. Mike Jones on Stan Humphries in the 45-7 game (Dec 96). Humphries blinked about 1000 in aminute.

    Bryan Cox on either Reggie Wayne or Jerome Pathon in 2001. That hit, the hardest I've ever seen, was the catalyst that turned the season around and led to the Super Bowl run. Never has one hit meant so much for a team, I think. Cox basically chokeslammed the guy.

    The one that comes to mind is during the snow game against the Dolphins. On a blitz Rodney came in unblocked on Fiedler's blind side and clobbered him forcing a fumble.

    Funny thing about Rodney is since he's been here, he hasn't had many highlight reel hits, but his regular tackles are just harder in general than anyone else.

    I think the Eugene hit on Reggie Wayne was pretty impressive. I have a few others in my mind, but can't quite pinpoint the who/what/where of all of them.

    I believe that hit was used in the menu of Madden 2005.

    Which Geno hit was it where he was fined for "launching" into the WR with his helmet, but it was clearly his shoulder. Was that the Wayne one you're all talking about?

    I'm not 100% sure who it was (Willie or Vrable) who absolutely crushed Warner in sb36. Pepper was on the sidelines screaming, "They knocked him out! I think they knocked him out!"

    I completely agree with this hit. I remembered the hit but was trying to remember which Patriots actually made the hit.

    That was a scarey moment. Humphries had a blank gazed stare look. He had know idea of where he was or what was going on.

    What about the hit that Rodney gave Edge in the playoffs, I believe, in 03... The one where Bruschi was "toying" with Edge, and Rodney finished him off... Ouch... Hit him from behind...

    Re: What was the hardest,most vicious hit ever laid out by a Patriots player in a gam




    YESSSSSS thats the one that easily hurt the most. It happened at the 2 minute warning in the 05 playoffs. They were trying to drive down for a complementary TD but the Patriots D wouldnt let that happen. On the 3 games to Glory DVD you can just see Edge's persperation just fly off his face. His back bent pretty good and probably knocked the wind out of him.

    2nd place could be any defensive play on the 36 superbowl. Hits on everyplay even away from the ball. I still remember Vrabel mauling Faulk even if the ball was on the other side of the feild.

    3rd place would be the Broncos vs us because Brady just always seems to get hit even though the D-line is terrible on the Broncos. They always seem to get in his face and knock him down.

    That was such an aware play by Bruschi. He knew he had Rodney coming to lay the wood so he went for the strip.

    didnt Tippett nail Ken O'Brien in the '85 playoff game? I seem to remember hearing reports how the Jets sidelines heard O'Brien on the phone to the coaches trying to order a pizza.

    i know i know, we're taking football, but this may have been the most important hard hit (besides Mo Lewis on Bledsoe) in New England sports history. It turned around the series and gave Boston a title
