Blast From the Past: Former Eagles Legend Brian Dawkins Says His Biggest Hit Ever Was on Michael Vick (Video)
Brian Dawkins is now on Twitter, where he was asked by a fan to reveal the biggest hit he ever put on somebody.
Dawkins didn’t say the mammoth hit he put on Atlanta Falcons tight end Alge Crumpler (from the 2004 NFC championship game), which is easily his most famous hit in a Philadelphia uniform.
He didn’t list the hit he put on Green Bay Packers tight end Bubba Franks in 2005, a hit so powerful that Franks was carried off on a stretcher.
The hit he did choose? Ironically, it was a hit he put on current Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.
In the 2002 NFC divisional playoffs, Dawkins delivered a blow on Vick as the Falcons quarterback crossed the goal line. The hit knocked Vick sideways and kept him down on the ground for a full minute.
Vick’s play, originally ruled a 20-yard touchdown that would have tied the game at 13 in the third quarter, was called back due to a holding penalty.
The Eagles ended up winning the game 20-6.
