Chuck Muncie  

He has a gaming experience of 9 years.

Chuck Muncie was considered by many as one of the best running backs in the game until cocaine problems forced him into retirement.

After graduating college, the New Orleans Saints selected Muncie in the 1st round of the 1976 NFL Draft with the 3rd overall selection. Muncie went to the Pro Bowl and was named the game's MVP after the 1979 season with the Saints. Muncie became the first Saints player ever to reach the 1,000-yard rushing plateau when he ran for 1,198 yards in 1979.

During the 1980 season, Muncie was traded to the San Diego Chargers, where he again was selected for the Pro Bowl twice, including 1981. He retired at the end of the 1984 season after he tested positive for cocaine.

Muncie finished his 9 season career with 6,702 rushing yards, 263 receptions for 2,323 yards, 20 kickoff returns for 432 yards, and 74 touchdowns.
