The beauty of the broken tackle is that there are many forms. Sometimes, it's an arm-bash to the dome, a la Adrian Peterson, that simply clears a defender out of the way. Sometimes it's a LaDanian Tomlinson head-fake that leaves jockstraps in its wake. And then, once in a lifetime, Joey Walton of Lewiston High School in Idaho comes along and does this: (via Jimmy Traina, who may have appropriately called it the "greatest TD run ever").
Okay, maybe the run isn't the greatest part, and I probably have seen better full-on runs, but I'm willing to call that flip --> landing the "best broken tackle of all time."
