Anybody Notice Harvey Martin's 23 sack season in 77 was reduced to a 20 sack season?
Notice it when or where?
In record books, like this one
Official NFL.com record book
I have noticed it in other ones, but I dont remember which and where.
From the link you posted, here's the list of players under the category "Most sacks in a season"
Not sure what you're looking at, but it shouldn't be listed at NFL.com. Sacks weren't an official stat until 1982 (it even says that on the link that YOU posted) so Harvey Martin could of got 89 sacks in 1978 and they still wouldn't be listed.
Here's what it says about him at wikipedia...
Exactly. Martin still had 23 sacks in 1977 -- that's the Cowboys' record. But the NFL doesn't recognize it because sacks weren't an official stat until 1982.
