Whitner's hit meant more because that one hit alone set the tone for the entire game. It was more meaningful in the sense we were showing just how physical we were as a defense. And how "you just got a wake up call."
Whitner's hit came in a bigger game. Playoffs? Fogettaboutit. I love me some Goldson, so that bone-jarring hit against the Bucs are a close second. Knocking the ball loose only helps. But I also enjoyed Willis' hit against Brad Smith, simply because #16 had to compose himself shortly after. I bet his insides were bleeding and he probably threw up in the locker room at some point. So yeah:
All great hits. Made me sound like Ric Flair when I saw them, "Wooooo!!!"
Voted for Patrick's hit. Love that play. Brad Smith looked like he got broken by Patrick, then popped up like nothing happened, then realized "yeah I did get broken by Patrick Willis" and dropped back down.
