Chuck Bednarik’s Hit On Frank Gifford 1960

One of the most devastating hits in NFL history took place in 1960. Chuck Bednarik aka “Concrete Charlie”- and his hit on Frank Gifford. Bednarik stood over Gifford’s seemingly life-less body. The game ends and the Giants are going to their lockers. They walk past a room with someone laid out on a table and a sheet over them. They thought it was Gifford and Bednarik’s hit had killed him. As it was Gifford would miss the rest of the 1960 season and the entire 1961 season due to that hit. Note- “Concrete Charlie” Chuck Bednarik died this March.
