In his heyday, James Harrison was one of the toughest, most intimidating players in football. The five-time Pro Bowler was a menace to opposing quarterbacks, racking up 80.5 sacks across his 14-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

But few of those sacks were as impressive as this hit he delivered on then-Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young.

Sandwiched in between Harrison and another Steelers' defender, Young takes an absolutely brutal hit on this one. But while finishing the sack, Harrison somehow manages to perform a WWE-style bodyslam on the Titans QB. This was the first of Harrison's two sacks on the day.

The 2010 season was a special one for Harrison. He finished the year with 100 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 21 QB hits, 10.5 sacks and 6 forced fumbles, but few were more memorable than this one.
