Chuck Muncie dies at 60; was standout Chargers, Saints running back
Ken Trahan, general manager of the Saints Hall of Fame, said Muncie was probably the most talented runner New Orleans ever had.
“Once he got the corner, to see that guy get north and south with that speed for his size was frightening,” Trahan said. “Chuck could lower his shoulder and run over people, run through people as well as just run away from them.”
Muncie has been nominated for the Saints Hall of Fame, which is run independently from the club, but has not been enshrined as Galbreath has. Part of the reason, Trahan said, is because members of the Hall’s selection panel say the drug use that coincided with the Saints’ decision to trade him also was detrimental to the club, which went 1-15 the season he left.
“Clearly he had some issues off the field and he ended up paying a price for that,” Trahan said, alluding both to the damage to his reputation and his jail time. “The beauty of that is he really overcame that, grew up and became a much better person.”
