Cool Sheldon Brown: 'It Was Like Running Through A Cardboard Box'

"Seriously. Cardboard box."

That was Sheldon Brown's response to what it felt like leveling Saints runningback Reggie Bush in the playoffs last season. A cardboard box is certainly not among the first 48 things I'd think Reggie Bush would feel like hitting. We posted the image here at FanHouse minutes after it happened last January and this week the hit will grace the cover of Sports Illustrated appearing in a feature titled "Big Hits."

My favorite part is when the author asks one of the leagues best linebackers about the hit.

The play resonated throughout the league: Watching it on TV a thousand miles away in Chicago, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher rose in appreciation. "Those are the ones you dream about," he'd say later. The New Orleans crowd, frenzied only seconds before, fell silent.
It was one of the most amazing clock cleanings I've ever seen. I went so far as to make the image my background on my laptop.


To his credit, Reggie Bush bounced right back in that playoff game and helped end the Eagles season. Let's hope Sheldon Brown can do it again in 2008 -- crush Reggie Bush that is, not end the Eagles season.

"Everybody talks about the hit and rightfully so, it definitely was a great hit, but that play showed me something totally different. After regaining my breath, seeing Reggie get up than drop and crawl on the field, Reggie show everybody that praised that hit that he was one of the toughest kids in the game today. Not only did he return to the game, he played like that hit never happened, going on to help the Saints to victory. So Sheldon you won that battle, but Reggie won the war."
