This clip was from the 2006 Pro Bowl, featuring the late great Sean Taylor. He was 24 at the time of his death in November of 2007. He was selected to 2 Pro Bowls, and is the only player to be voted into the NFL’s All Star game posthumously (2007). Despite only 3 NFL seasons, Taylor was one of the most feared safeties in the NFL. His bone crushing hits earned him the nickname “Meast” (half-man, half-beast) among his Redskins teammates.
In the clip above, Bills punter Brian Moorman tries to take off for a 1st down. Sean Taylor hawks him down from about 20 yards away and drops a hammer to prevent the AFC from keeping the drive alive. This play will go down as one of the greatest in Pro Bowl history.
