had two great seasons in Philadelphia leading the league in receiving yards in 1969 and 1973. It is too bad that Jackson was the only one playing well for those dreadful Eagles teams.
This isn’t to say that Jackson didn’t have good campaigns at other times in his career. He became a Ram and was part of a very good squad there. Ironically, he went from being hidden on a bad team to being overshadowed on a fairly good one. Jackson was a Red Zone Specialist and a deep threat throughout his career.
Harold Jackson’s career numbers are quite good, especially considering that he tallied most of his numbers at a time when Wide Receivers were not setting the NFL on fire. However, considering he was not selected to the 1970’s All-Decade team, it is hard to see how he can make the Hall; especially considering other great wideouts from the ’70s are still out.
