  1. How many sacks did Jackson have in 1981, before they were “officially” kept in the books?

  2. Cam Jordan has a chance to break 100 before his career is done. By the end of this season he should be all alone at #5.

  3. I believe you are right about Rickey Jackson’s 1981 sacks.
    This is what I’ve found on him so far.
