He’s one of the best to ever do it in a Philadelphia Eagles jersey. You can place him in every era of NFL football, and he’d be successful. Harold Carmichael made four Pro Bowls in an Eagles jersey (1973, 1978–1980). That’s probably where the process of ‘snubbing’ started. he should have been elected to more.

Hey, if we’re being truthful, the accolades that he’s earned over his football life would require a separate story to list them all. Here are just a few of the highlights. He’s a member of the NFL 1970s All-Decade Team. He was the NFL Man of the Year in 1980, but that’s not all.

He’s a member of the Philadelphia Eagles 75th Anniversary Team, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, and the Florida Sports Hall of Fame. Add that to his induction into the Southwest Athletic Conference Hall of Fame, the Black College Football Hall of Fame, the Eagles Hall of Fame, and, on January 15th of 2020, he finally received enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Here’s what’s crazy. That was news to some as there were quite a few football fans who just assumed without looking that he was already there.

On April 21st, the Philadelphia Eagles dropped a clip of Carmichael getting a first look at his gold jacket via social media.

This is something you’ll want to check out if you self-identify as a Birds fan. Try to fight the tears back or the smile or both.
