Someone mentioned Harold Charmichael in reference to Clark. Hyperbole but the first time I've heard anyone compared to Charmichael. I remember him when I was a little kid as a fan of the Eagles. Why was I an Eagles fan? Because in 1981 the Packers sucked and I liked eagles.
Back in those days, '81 was actually a "good" year for the Pack as they traded for San Diego All-Pro WR John Jefferson in mid-season and they made it to 8-8. Sorry you missed that as an Eagles fan.
Truth be told, I rooted a lot for the San Diego Chargers (R.I.P. NFL Football in San Diego) a lot from 1979-1981 so I can relate to rooting for another team during that era.
No I remember that clearly but wasn't JJ fat and slow/unmotivated by time he got to GB? I don't remember 81' being an 8-8 year but my memory from that age isn't crystal clear. I was also a Chargers fan (because I liked chargers, as in 69 dodge, and also lightning bolts) that year and remember Fouts, Winslow, JJ, Muncie and Chandler. I was hoping for a Chargers/Eagles SB.
