My all time favorite Dolphin....he’s still going strong and the amazing thing given current data on head trauma resulting in rules specially implemented to help stem the tide of concussions, that if anyone suffered head collisions, repeated collisions, it was this guy. He actually created the collisions with his style of running. Recall Jack Tatum hard hitting safety of the Raiders bouncing off Csonka in a run up the middle and Tatum usually made the other guy bounce off him!

And to think the great Vince Lombardi one time said the he didn’t see anything special in Csonka after his Packers played Csonka and the college-allstars, a game played in pre-season. And Lombardi was usually not wrong about much, but Csonka proved him wrong.

Csonka overcame head trauma early in his career when it was rumored he might have to quit the game, then after modifications to his helmet it was never an issue again.

Wish him a long and healthy life up there in the Alaska wilderness, a reminder of great Dolphins teams of yesteryears.

He didn't catch it with his fishing gear. He dove in and headbutted the fish.

And he did it with two eels and an octopus trying to hold him back.

That's the thing about Csonka. It wasn't his hard hits that was impressive to me. It's the fact that he could run into the middle of the line and drag 2-3 guys with him and still get you 5-6 yards EVERY TIME.

I was thinking maybe the ol forearm shiver running style may have helped him too.
