    Maybe it is the low def tv, but he looks slow.

    Definitely a different era and a different game.
    Any thoughts?

    He definitely was a dominant force.

    Players and ex players always talk about how the speed of the game has changed.

    Watching old clips definatley makes it look like they are right.

    Wow - there were a lot of hits that wouldn't be legal now.
    Did you see the face mask about 1:30 into the video. LOL.

    Anyway, a great player from a different era.

    Butkus was a beast.
    One tough SOB.
    I would have enjoyed to had the opportunity to watch him and Ditka go against each other in practice every day.
    Two tough Mofo's.

    That was a Golden Age in football history. Butkus was a true monster of the midway. He used to spit on the ball when Tinglehoff was our center.

    I would have to go with the guys playing in leather helmets as being tough mfers.
    The gear sucked ass and you could feel everything.
    Like putting tricycle tires on your car and removing the shocks.
