This is a decent countdown so far. I know what my number 1 pick would be (Ben against the Colts on the fumble by the Bus). Time will tell if it is number 1 here as well.

I'll try and post the new one each day.
Ben did something more than make the tackle, what he did was he slowed Harper’s sprint towards the endzone almost to the point that Tuman may have made a tackle if Ben whiffed.

good thread and that was a great play. My pick is the blocking Carvan that escorted Harrison to the endzone in the Super Bowl.

One of my favorite hustle plays was on Parker’s 75 yard scamper in Super Bowl XL. While it’s hard to describe Max Starks as hustling, but without Max making two key blocks, that play would have been good for about 4-6 yards. True, Faneca makes a killer trap block, but Max cleared out the last two defenders that had a chance to make a play. I can guarantee with 100 degree of certainly, this will not make the list.
Top effort plays 3 - 4. My pick for #1 comes in at #3.

Ben's tackle is definitely #1 IMO.
#1 and #2 finally posted. #2 is James Harrison interception return in the Super Bowl and #1 is Franco's Immaculate reception.

Can't name a specific one, but has to be one of Troy's timed leaps over the Offensive Line into the backfield for the loss of yardage.

The best one was against Tennessee when Collins was the QB. Troy attempted it several times in other games, but didn’t work quite as well.
Troy Polamalu Interception / Ravens AFC Championship. Loved the fact he sealed it off. For once Steeler fans could enjoy the win 2 minutes before the end of the game.
I liked Troy's interception against the Chargers. Great effort and got the interception while the ball was literally inches from the ground.

Troy also had a great interception Pick 6 called back but later the NFL said it should have been an interception, but they wanted the game to end in an 11-8 score I think.

Troy has had many great plays.
Carnell Lake had a great poke strip against Carl Pickens and the Bengals in 1997 and my personal favorite is Hines Ward catch against the Bengals in Three Rivers in 2000. Ward made a catch after beating a Bengals CB, caught the ball and got clobbered by the safety coming over the top and stayed on his feet, running it into the endzone for the td. Great catch.

I remember the Carnell Lake play, it was awesome!
I also remember a game against the Colts where Rod Woodson literally shoved the blocker into the running back to make the tackle. It was a great play.

That was vs. Indy in the '96 playoffs. 

Rod literally literally uses Hall of Famer Marvin Lewis' body to slam Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk to the ground.  Scared Pi_shocked Rockon
