I'm serious though... how can these guys do that every game for 5+ years and other guys get concussions and other head injuries after one hit? I know a lot of them a unlucky and some can be really bad... but I still don't get how fullbacks survive..
I wonder that, too. Could be they're just the baddest MoFos who play. Like in that video, there's two kick returns where Diehl just SMACKS into a coverage guy, they both fall down... And Diehl's the one who gets back up looking for someone else to hit. He's done his job, because he put a guy in the turf. And that's pretty much all his job is. A linebacker's actually got to come off a block and still has to tackle his guy, and linemen are typically bigger than the guys they're blocking. Guys like Diehl just have to be strong enough and tough enough to play a position where they're literally just trying to hit someone so hard that they're knocked away from the guy they're trying to tackle.
