Okay, it's not Bills-related but it's football.

Would you take a sack at full speed?

I already played football in high school and college. If I did that now I would be going in for surgery the next morning.

Considering the worst part of the impact is usually being driving into the ground with the 300lb guy on top of you he saved himself a lot of pain by having a pad to land on.

This.  Those shoulder separations are the result of a ground/QB/DE sandwich.  Landing on a pad takes the realism out of it.

I would only do it if I could be pancaked on concrete.  No kitty pad or grass stuff.  and I want to lambasted by Wilfork of some other tubby DL-man.

No I would not. I was going to give my reasoning but it should not be necessary.

Yeah the pad was nice.  But I'm in my 50s and had back surgery last year.  That hit - pad or no pad - would have put tears in my eyes.

Yeah, that's not that impressive.



This I would not do.

Thanks! but now I am watching the Kate Upton spin around with body paint on GIF. I doubt I will watch the sack thing.

Besides landing on the pad, the "sackee" was not exactly a small guy either… not exactly a pencil-necked geek.

Still being in my 20's and not all that small I wouldn't have an issue with that.  I think the mat on the field is retarded. Although having played football I know you're more likely to get hurt standing still expecting to get hurt.  It's a situational drill but taking a free hit is an easy way to get injured.

Happy Friday indeed!  Of course I'd do that!  ...what sack thing?

Funny how they put his blood type on his helmet "O-Neg"

No, I wouldn't take that hit voluntarily.
