Joe Theismann

In an ESPN poll, Thiesmann's career ending injury was voted as the NFL's "Most Shocking Moment in History." Indeed it was. The injury was delivered by none other than Lawrence Taylor and Harry Carson of the New York Giants and was apparently so devastating that even Taylor was shocked by what he had done and was calling for help. At 36 years old, Thiesmann retired from the NFL.
