• Chuck Muncie dies at 60

    Former NFL running back Chuck Muncie has died of a heart attack at the age of 60. But off the field, Muncie also ran fast. The death of former Saints star running back Chuck Muncie starts this edition of "Black and Gold Today." Muncie was even better in San Diego than he had been in New Orleans, and his presence as a runner bolstered an already strong Chargers offense. At the time he spoke those words, Muncie was helping run a scouting service for high school football players, in the process of starting an Internet company to broadcast high school games and also was immersed in his work with youth. Muncie arrived in New Orleans with the reputation of a Cal-Berkeley flower child - a breezy, articulate free spirit who attended his first Saints press conference in a wide-brimmed straw hat. In 1981 he led the league with 19 touchdowns, and he was outstanding in the playoffs after that season: He rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown as the Chargers beat the Dolphins 41-38 in one of the greatest games ever played, and he was one of the few Chargers who played well the following week, when San Diego lost in freezing conditions in Cincinnati, gaining 94 yards on the ground while the Chargers lost to the Bengals 27-7 in the AFC Championship Game.
