Johnny Sample’s Ratings: Wide Receivers

Last week, I posted 1960s’ cornerback Johnny Sample’s ratings of quarterbacks Bart Starr and Zeke Bratkowski from Sample’s 1970 autobiography, Confessions of a Dirty Ballplayer. Here are his assessments of Packer receivers Max McGee, Boyd Dowler and Carroll Dale according to the criteria of speed, ability to run pass patterns, ability to catch the ball, blocking ability and susceptibility to intimidation. The Packer trio does fairly well in the ratings of the brash corner:


1954bmmcgee2  1960fmmcgee

1959tbdowler2  1960tbdowler

1965pcdale1  1970kcdale

McGee custom cards are colorized.
