Oh God I remember that hit, and the way he folded over was completely unnatural. I was so effing glad he wasn't paralyzed, it looked that awful. I take absolutely no pleasure in that. That wasn't about laying a great hit on a guy, that was just about really awful luck, bad positioning, and a huge dude coming down on you at the time. I had nightmares about my back bending that way afterwards.
I'm glad the dude's OK. I'm really sorry to hear his career's over. And really sad that it was because of that play. I don't want ending peoples' careers to a part of our identity, even though there was nothing wrong with the hit.
