HIGH UP ON MANY A DRAFTBOARD IN THE'22 NFL CAMPUS RECRUITMENT DRIVE WERE PREMIUM EDGE RUSHERS... AKA, SACKIN' STAMPEDERS WHO ARE LIKE PURE GOLD , AND AMONG THE MOST PRIZED DEFENDERS IN FOOTBALL...

GOOD AND REFINED ONES ARE AS COVETED AS PRECIOUS METALS... THEY'RE ALMOST AS RARE AS THE FRANCHISE SIGNAL CALLERS THEY ARE PAID TO HOUND AND HARRASS ALL OVER GOD'S GREEN TURF. AS FORWARD PASSING IN TODAY'S GAME HAS BECOME MORE CREATIVE, INVENTIVE , AND ABUNDANT , THE SCORING HAS BOOMED ALONG WITH THE SURFACE-TO- AIR EXCITEMENT. ADDITIONALLY, THE MULTI GIFTED FIELD GENERALS OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM, NOW COME, NOT ONLY WITH A CANNON ON THEIR SHOULDER , BUT MOTORIZED WHEELS TO DUCK AND DODGE THE ENEMY... THEY CAN ATTACK AT WILL AND OFTEN WITHOUT FIRING A SHOT... THEREFORE, SACK SPECIALISTS MUST POSSESS IMMENSE POWER, SKILL, FINESSE AND QUICKNESS TO RAM THOSE MOBILE CANNONS BEHIND THEIR FORTIFIED WALLS, AND DOOM THE PASSING ATTACK.....

IT'S THE OFFICIAL 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SACK... IT WAS 1982 WHEN THE NFL ACKNOWLEDGED IMPORTANCE OF THE SACK AS A RECORDABLE STATISTIC... WITH (11.5) SACKS THAT SEASON, DEFENSIVE END, DOUG MARTIN OF THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS WON THE FIRST OFFICIAL SACK CROWN..

IT'S NOT LIKE HE WAS THE FIRST TURF TOSSER , IT'S JUST THAT THE NFL WASN'T COUNTING THEM UNTIL THEN... WE KNOW BETTER, AND SO DID AN INDEPENDENT STAT GROUP, WHO RECENTLY (WITH SO MUCH TIME DURING COVID) COMPILED A LIST FROM ARCHIVES AND FOOTAGE DATING BACK TO 1960... THEREFORE, BE NOT DECEIVED , THERE IS AN UNOFFICIAL LIST THAT GIVES US MORE MODERN DAY CLARITY (AND CREDIT), AND AN OFFICIAL DOCUMENT THAT PROVIDES FOUR RECENT DECADES OF FACTS.. BEFORE WE PROCEED, HERE'S SOME ANNIVERSARY SACK HISTORY THAT INCLUDES THE TRAILBLAZERS AND PIONEERS WHO CAME TO THE STADIUM IN "COVERED WAGONS".

THEY TOILED AND LOVED THE PIGSKIN GAME JUST AS MUCH AS ANYBODY, AND INCLUDES THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS WELL: THE FIRST UNOFFICIAL CHAMP IN 1960 WAS DEFENSIVE END, GINO MARCHETTI , OF THE BALTIMORE COLTS , WITH (11) FLINGS OF THE FRANCHISE FAVS... THE MOST OFFICIAL SINGLE-SEASON TURF SLAMS GOES TO NEW YORK GIANT, DE, MICHAEL STRAHAN WITH (22.5) IN 2001 , AND TJ WATT OF THE PITTSURGH STEELERS, (2021).

HOWEVER, UNOFFICIALLY, THE DETROIT LIONS', AL BUBBA BAKER'S (23) IN 1978 LEADS THE ENTIRE SACK PACK.. THE "GODFATHER OF THE SACK" , AND TO HE, THE TERM SACK IS CREDITED IS "DON", DAVID "DEACON" JONES, WHO MADE OFFERS QB's WANTED TO, BUT JUST WEREN'T ABLE TO REFUSE... HE STRONG ARMED AND PULVERIZED HIS WAY TO (5) UNOFFICIAL SACK CROWNS IN 1964,'65,'67,'68 &'69 , WITH (20.5), (19.0), (21.5), (22) & (15) RESPECTIVELY... NOW, THE ALL-TIME CUMULATIVE SACK CHAMP, UNOFFICIAL, OFFICIAL OR OTHERWISE, IS DE, BRUCE SMITH, BUFFALO BILLS/WASHINGTON RKINS... KING BRUCE , SACK DADDY EXTRAORDINAIR, NEVER WON A SINGLE-SEASON CROWN, THOUGH ACHIEVED A MASSIVE BASKETFULL OF (200) SACKS IN HIS (19) SEASON CAREER , OUTPACING DE, REGGIE WHITE BY TWO TAKE DOWNS... THERE WERE OTHER FAMED "CHUCKER CHASERS" TO LEAD THE REVOLT ON QBs, AND OFTEN CAME IN NOTORIOUS GROUPS, SUCH AS FEARSOME FOURSOME, AND PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS , ETC... THEY DID THEIR TRADING AND FLIPPED QBs LIKE LUGGAGE IN THEIR HANGAR AT SHEA STADIUM WITH THE JETS...

THEY WERE DT, ABDUL SALAAM, KENT STATE ,'76 , DE, JOE KLECKO,'77 TEMPLE , DT, MARTY LYONS, ALABAMA,'79 AND DT, MARCUS DELL GASTINEAU, EAST CENTRAL OKLAHOMA STATE,'79... ALL WERE GRADUATES WITH BS DEGREES IN SACKOLOGY , WITH ELECTIVES IN RUNNING BACK ROPIN'. A FEW OTHERS JOINED THE BAND LATER.. BACK IN THE SIZZLING 70s , THE HIP CROWDS WERE JAMMIN' ON SOUL TRAIN , OR BOPPIN' ON AMERICAN BANDSTAND...

LATER, THEY WERE CATCHING THE FEVER ON SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DISCO. BUT ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON , IT WAS USUALLY THOSE FOOTBALL PHENOMS WHO BEGAN CELEBRATING IN THE END ZONE AFTER "HOUSE CALLS"... BILLY "WHITE SHOES" JOHNSON, RETURN SPECIALIST OF THE HOUSTON OILERS , (NOW TENNESSEE TITANS), TURNED A TOUCHDOWN INTO SOMETHING MORE THAN A SCORE WITH HIS JOYOUS, "FUNKY CHICKEN" ENDZONE DANCE...

HIS TALENTED AND HUMOROUS ANTICS BECAME INFAMOUS AS AN ADDED ATTRACTION, AND WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE ENTERTAINMENT REVOLUTION IN FOOTBALL... HE STARTED A TREND , AND OTHER PLAYERS CHIMED IN , INCLUDING DEFENDERS.

CELEBRATED AMONG THOSE DEFENDERS, AND WILDLY CELEBRATING AMONG THEM, WAS GASTINEAU "THE SACK DANCER" WHO PRANCED LIKE THOSE WRs AND RETURN SPECs WHEN HE MADE A QB SCORE... HE WAS AMONG THE FIRST DEFENDERS TO GYRATE AND PIROUETTE IN EXCESS OVER HIS PREY OF FALLEN FOE FLIPPER... HIS DANCE LOOKED AS THOUGH HE WAS POSSESSED BY THE LOONEY TUNES, TASMANIAN DEVIL AS HE GROWLED, STOMPED AND TWIRLED... HE WOULD BECOME THE SECOND OFFICIAL SS, SACK LEADER IN 1983 WITH (19). THEN UPPED HIS TOTAL TO (22) IN' 84 FOR CONSECUTIVE CROWNS...

MG WAS A MONTROUSLY POPULAR JET, HOWEVER, HIS DANCE ANTICS AND OTHERS WHO DEVELOPED ONE, WOULD INFURIATE SOME OPPONENTS, ESPECIALLY O-LINEMAN... THERE WOULD BECOME A CAVALCADE OF HOOPLA AFTER SACKS AND SCORES, AND THINGS BEGAN TO GO OVER THE TOP , AND EVENTUALLY DOWN THE GULLY... PREMEDITATED CELEBRATIONS WERE BANNED BY THE BIG BRASS AS UNSPORTSMANLIKE IN 1984 , THOUGH NOT RIDGIDLY ENFORCED UNTIL 2004 WHEN THE AXE FELL.. WATCHING THE GAME THESE DAYS, IT'S OBVIOUS THE BAN HAS BEEN LIFTED ON CELEBRATIONS SOMEWHAT, WITH SPECIFIC RULES ON WHAT IS AND ISN'T ALLOWED... IF ONE IS SO FORTUNATE AS TO MAKE AN NFL TEAM, SOME RESEARCH MIGHT BE HELPFUL ON.

UPON SUCCESSFULLY SCORING A TD, SACK, SACK FOR LOSS, PICK, PICK SIX , OR OTHER ACT WORTHY OF ENTHUSIASM , IT MAY BE WISE TO HAVE CHECKED WITH THE BRASS IN NEW YORK CITY PRIOR... THEY COULD ADVISE IF THE "DIRTY BIRD", "CALIFORNIA QUAKE" OR THE "FUNKY CHICKEN" PRANCE, DANCE IS NOW ILLEGIT, OR TOO LEGIT TO QUIT!
