Click here for the video. While Bears fans think this is yet another dirty hit by the nasty Packers in a colorful rivalry, truth is, Ken Stills did this all the time. In fact, I think Ken Stills was just one of those guys who suffered from a timing problem. The number of times he hit people who were already out of bounds was staggering. I’ll bet in conversation he’s the kind of person who comes in a tad late to everything, throwing off the rhythm of the conversation.
My reaction to this hit at the time, I believe, was a simple shake of my head ecause it was another 15 yard penalty. But I knew it didn’t happen because it was against the Bears in a heated game – it happened because Ken Stills was playing football the only way he knew how.
