Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith might want to think twice before scrambling after a shot he took Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Smith, who is an underrated runner, got loose after the pocket collapsed and rushed down the field for a massive gain. (RELATED: The Detroit Lions Start The Season With One Of The Worst Games Of Football Ever Played [VIDEOS])

However, he made the big mistake of not sliding or giving himself up. The end result was him taking one of the biggest hits we’ve seen in the NFL this season. It was absolutely brutal. Take a look below.

That’s the kind of hit he won’t be forgetting anytime soon. His dome got absolutely rocked.

The most impressive part of the whole video is the fact he immediately popped up. There was literally no hesitation. He hit the ground and shot right back up.

I’d be in the hospital for a year if I took a hit like that one. Hell, I might just be dead. I guess that’s why he’s an NFL QB and I’m not.

We’ll have to see if he’s more hesitant in the future before the odds are high.
