Video: Dick LeBeau Tackles Haywood Jeffires

Since the Steelers are playing Houston this upcoming Sunday this seems like as good a time as any to post this completely random video of a 1989 Bengals-Oilers game.

Why? Because Bengals defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who looks the same as he does today, 22 years later, performed a perfect textbook tackle of Houston wide receiver Haywood Jeffires during the Oilers’ 26-24 win.

It’s that kind of tackle that gets a man into the Hall of Fame. Hopefully the Steelers don’t need to rely on him to tackle Andre Johnson on Sunday…

    What a hilarious clip!
    Dick probably didn’t like the facemask applied to his guy by Jeffries.

    LeBeau leapt to his feet and said, “Now your name is Haywood Jablome!”

    Even today at 74 years old I would NOT mess with Dick LeBeau. That man could still take your head off!
