    How come all these people with disabilities and less limb do more stuff?

    I don`t... I just do what I want, which doesn`t include overwhelming success.

    that first tackle was a facemask penalty. He should have been taken out of the game

    That is one respectable man, epic.

    @ CZX11: He grabbed his shoulder pads, not the face mask.

    Uh, that first tackle was a horse collar tackle. Not cool and you can hurt somebody (now illegal).

    Kidding... it just goes to show you that it`s what you have, not what you haven`t. (I didn`t make that up. Paraphrasing somebody.)

    To be honest, he isn`t the greatest athlete of all time. Athletics is about physical ability, which he lacks. Most amazing athlete, I`ll believe. It is impressive the way he still added to the game despite a maor disadvantage. Also, having Roger Staubach compliment you can`t be a bad thing.

    My dad actually played against this guy back in high school (I live in the county right next to Madison,(taylor county) they`re our schools main football rivals) He said the kid was absolutely amazing on the field.

    Admirable but sad, cause no matter how good he is, he still can`t kick someone`s a*s without eating dirt...

    "JimboH if you knew anything about High school football you would know that there not illegal that rule is specific to the NFL."

    Actually, you`re wrong there, kiddo.

    The horse collar tackle is not "specific" to the NFL. It`s now a penalty in college and the CFL, too.

    Roy Williams of the Oklahoma Sooners, and then the Dallas Cowboys, made the tackle famous, as he specialized in it. And yes, he used it in college, too.

    As far as your contention that I don`t know anything about high school football, you`re right; I know very little about high school football rules. Then again, I said I was kidding. Thanks for pointing that out, though.

    No wonder he had so many tackles. If I was a QB about to throw the ball, and out of my peripheral vision I see a dude with one leg hopping like a rabbit out of hell towards me, I`d immediately stop everything I was doing to watch.
