When Lawrence Taylor sacked Joe Theismann in 1985 and caused a compound fracture in Theismann's leg it was a major event. It was replayed over and over and really, it still is.
Under the player in the orange helmet is Tarkenton and you can see the terrible angle his lower leg takes as Burley's weight applies pressure.
To both, all we can say is, "Yikes!".
Remember, though, Mr. Fran Tarkenton healed-up & in 1978 had probably his best statistical season (his final season).ReplyDelete
Theismann never played again.Delete
