Who do you think is the hardest hitter?
james harrison.. he murders people.. those 2 are just more known for their overall athleticism and speed
Bad comparison you cant compare the 2. Where they play on the fild and who they are trying to tackle.
Lol,okay guys,just choose one.
Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
Of all time has to be Steve Atwater!
James Harrison is the hardest hitter in the league.
In this poll: Matthews; due to his size. Linebacker vs Safety.
Brian Urlacher. done
I want to vote neither but out of those two it's Clay without a doubt.
outta this two, clay mathews, troy is an excellent player but he doesn't really hit anyone, just kind of dives at legs.....hardest hitter in the nfl is probably james harrison, the guy just blows ppl up
I Force Anabolic Minion, Eat, Train, Grow
Clay Matthews is a beast...don't get me wrong...but when I think of "big hitters" Clay Matthews isn't even on my top 15 list....top 25 if he's lucky. On the Steelers alone you have Polamalu, Farrior, Clark, and Harrison who are all bigger "hitters" than Clay Matthews.
So are Ray Lewis, Patrick Willis, Merriweather from the Pats and a plethora of other players. Matthews isn't even the biggest hitter on his team.
I'm not trying to take anything away from him, I'm actually a huge fan of his, but to this point Clay Matthews has done nothing to be regarded as a big hitter.
Now..as far as playmaking goes...he's up there at the top of the list w/ Polamalu, but still not quite at the level Polamalu is on yet.
The validation you're looking for in this question (ie, both guys running full steam ahead directly at eachother) is pretty stupid as well. Really?? 260lbs vs 210lbs? Who DO YA THINK is going to win that?
James Harrison FTW
Does nobody remember Steve Atwater? Dude, the hit he put on the Nigerian Nightmare, Christian Okoye, on Monday night football will go down in NFL history as one of the most viscious hits of all time! Okoye at that time was the most feared RB in the NFL, 260lbs of pure power who was running over every linebacker in the NFL. Check out the hit below!
