Frank Gifford on Pro Football

New York Giants' Halfback Frank Gifford epitomizes his quote about pro football.  Gifford took a hit by Chuck Bednarik of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1960 which knocked him out and caused a severe head injury which caused him to retire from football.

However, after 18 months, Gifford re-entered the gridiron playing flanker (a.k.a. wide receiver), where he earned a spot in the Pro Bowl before retiring for good in 1962.
