The Most Violent Game in Football History
This is a great piece about a game between the Raiders and the Bears in 1984. The descriptions of the damage the Bears inflicted on the Raiders quarterback, and the Raiders inflicted on Jim McMahon are enough to make you cringe. My favorite part is the (now) avuncular Howie Long's threat to beat up a Bears offensive tackle in the parking lot in front of his family.
