In most youth football leagues there is a weight limit for quarterbacks, running backs, and receivers -- the theory being that in the name of safety, 120 lb nine year-olds shouldn't be running full speed at the normal puny 60 pounders across the line.  Kids above the weight limit are only allowed to be linemen and they get four red stickers ("red-dots") for their helmet to make sure there's no cheating.

The NFL doesn't have such a mercy rule so we're insituting our own system in the form of an award. Mike Sellers (FB, #45) gets the award for the biggest hit of the weekend. A man among boys

Disclosure: Townhall.com is obviously in D.C. so most of us are partial to the Redskins but we defy you to find a bigger hit from this past weekend.
