This here sponsored post is designed to get me to share with you my favorite highlight from the season that just went by. I'm happy to oblige.

Between Julio Jones catching the ball in rush hour traffic, Michael Turner flinging a helpless Eric Weems forward as a human shield and watching John Abraham tear out Blaine Gabbert's soul with his teeth, there's almost too many highlights to count from last year, even if they were matched by lowlights in the playoffs.

There's only one that can win the title of favorite, though, and I have selected this:


After the jump, a short explanation about why I love this play so much.

This play has it all, frankly. It has a lesser-known running back catching a pass against the hated Saints and bringing it in for a touchdown. What really makes this excellent, in my humble opinion, is the sheer force of will Snelling's displaying on this run.

Watch him run over dudes. Marvel as he crushes more dudes. Look at him somehow stay on his feet despite having roughly two tons of human being launched at his legs. It's utterly amazing, and the circumstances somehow make it even better.

What's your highlight for 2011?
