. Certainly not in the ironman kind of tough and resilient way most people would think about the term. Put it this way, Buck is getting misjudged as "tough" on the basis of getting frequently injured. If he wasn't getting frequently injured people aren't voting him "toughest". In essense they're voting for the guy that falls on the field in a crumpled heap the most times..
Really its silly to suggest that the player that in the entire league is the least suitable for playing football is the "toughest" player. Its a strange notion and voted on by people that really didn't think it through apparently.
I didn't mean that. Getting back up is however :tough".
I guess a few hundred pro football players definition of "tough" is different than a couple of posters on HF. Honestly, if you get back up after taking the hits that Buck takes, you are tough and that's all I really see to it.
