was a segment featured on the halftime show of Monday Night Football
. The segment was hosted by Tom Jackson
. He highlighted the five biggest, hardest hits of the week in the NFL
. Chris Berman
, the host of the show, made it perfectly clear that no hits that cause an injury or draw a penalty are ever shown. He is complemented with other sportcasters like Michael Irvin
& Steve Young
. The segment began in the 2004 season
and is no longer running. Critics argue that the segment glorified the violent aspects of football which can cause severe injuries, although plays where players get injured were ineligible. Lots of players got on the list but there were some regulars on the list Brian Dawkins, Roy Williams, Joey Porter, and Sean Taylor.
In 2007, Jacked Up! was discontinued by ESPN.
