Yeah, different tackling rules back in the old days. I think back then even if someone tapped you, you could get up again and keep running; you had to have someone sitting on top of you before they'd blow the whistle.

I wonder how old-school QBs like Van Brocklin would do with the heavy passing offenses we're running these days?

Back then though, your defensive linemen were also trying to tare the QB's head off on every down.
