“He used to put some awesome hits on receivers.”

And in one case, crippling.

I remember that hit, and either one or both of those guys could have been seriously injured. There was no flag on the play and league officials played and replayed it ad infinitum to determine if Tatum should be held responsible. It just didn’t look like anything but hard-nosed football.

Stingley was bitter about it and Tatum didn’t want to face him. Tatum became diabetic and suffered numerous serious medical conditions related to that. He obviously didn’t take very good care of his diabetes.
