Jeff Fuller. Niner linebacker/safety. Suffered a spinal injury in a game vs the Patriots in 1989. Lost use of his right arm. Niners gave him a lifetime front office job.



Steve Young. Never played again after getting kicked in the head.

Fuller is a good one I forgot about him.

Dan Marino's achilles tendon tear in 1993? If so, that injury didn't affect his career at all other than 1 years worth of stats, which is what Marino is known for most: stats and not wins.



His knee injury at Pitt no doubt hampered his overall ability.  Take that back, and who knows how much more he could do?   Give him even one more step of mobility and you might have never made a big deal out of John Elway.

All the knees in the world doesn't make someone clutch.  Elway was a winner.  Marino liked putting up numbers.  Elway dragged some awful Broncos teams deep into the playoffs and the Super Bowl single-handedly, and then as soon as he got a team around him he won 2 in a row.  Marino was never going to make people forget about Elway.

The knee is not an excuse for Marino. Lest we forget: Elway had a bum knee from a high school injury that affected his entire career. It's the reason he always had/has that funny little hitch. He played his entire college and NFL with a gimpy knee...and still performed exceptionally well in both the passing and running game (ask Joey Browner about the former).

Had Elway NOT had that gimpy knee-- who knows?

I had forgotten about Marino's Terry Gordy knees. They did affect his mobility, although I don't think his lack of mobility was much of a problem since he was one of the best pocket passers in NFL history. Marino's problem was, although he was a great passer, he was an average QB. He was a narcissist who constantly yelled and blamed his teammates for his own shortcomings and he supposedly didn't want Don Shula to draft a RB, probably out of ego. Marino once threw 7 pics in a single game against Dallas. The great ones never throw 4, let alone 7.

Aeneas Williams, one of the dirtiest cheap shot artists in NFL history ended Steve's career after another douche bag Lawrence Phillips failed to pick up a CB blitz. It was on MNF for all the world to see. Steve was knocked out cold and never played another down.

Jeff Fuller was a bad-ass Safety/ILB hybrid who was just coming into his own. Great guy.

That was a clean hit on Steve no fault of Williams.

I didn’t list Montana or Young in this thread even though I was a mega 9er fan growing up because they are hall of fame players even though I would have loved to see them both play longer.

I’d list Marcus Allen being injured by Al Davis’s decisions before I’d list them.

Bullshit. He had a clean run and made the conscious decision to lower his head and take him out. It may of been technically not a penalty but it was dirty. Another reason why, as much as I respect Tom Brady, he simply did not play in the same NFL as his predecessors. Montana and Young are exhibit A & B on this. Brady played in an era where if a pass rusher cuts a fart within 5 yards of the QB, it's a 15 yard penalty.

That’s how people were taught to hit back then as much as people want to look back and apply today’s rules to the past it’s not possible.


As far as Brady v Montana or Young I agree it’s apples to oranges and Montana will always be the greatest to me.

I'm not looking back at jackshit. I watched the game in real time and I pointed out specifically that it wasn't a play to draw a penalty for the era. It was still a dirty play. It's Douche Bag Williams for cryin' out loud, legit one of the dirtiest cheap shot artists in his era.

It’s not a dirty hit for the time.
