Default Former '70s Steeler Jim Clack Dies

Jim Clack, who played guard on the first two SB champs, has passed away at age 58.

http://www.postgazette.com/pg/06097/680485-100.stm

He played at 6'3" 250, which now may seem hard to believe was a typical weight for an OL in those days (see link below to OL for 1970s teams)

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/04245/363094.stm

May he rest in peace

You are not kidding. How many former OL have died in the past 5 years?

They're dropping like flies!!

I know it's been said that playing pro football literally takes a few years off a persons life span but I'm wondering if there are other "contributing factors"??
