Dick Butkus was a player that never took a play off, and each snap was a chance to hurt someone. Oh how the NFL game has changed. Players today have a union, share the same agents, and look forward to off season trips to someplace tropical with one another.

The stories about Dick Butkus on the field are pretty unbelievable. Running backs for the opposing team asking him out loud to "take it easy," or Dick TELLING them what damage was coming their way...and then doing it.


I think what makes this video even more special, it is set to "Steppenwolf - Born to be Wild." Pretty perfect, don't you think?
