They didn't record sacks back then (70's), but I'm pretty sure Harvey Martin achieved that feat at one stage or another. 15 sacks or more is quite an achievement though, certainly not to be taken for granted that's for sure.

I don't see the Cowboys having a 15 sack guy anytime soon either, especially with Rod's rotation.

Its a huge achievement in one season, no chance this yr agree to that. Think Rod is hoping for 3 or 4 from every player? interesting this season is contract yr for D Law, maybe he can finally break out-if he stays clean that is.

Didnt realise they didnt record sacks in the 70s, otherwise i,d say Randy White would have gone close to 15 in pro bowl years 78 and 79, he got 12.5 in 83 and 84

There are stats out there, just not 'official' ones. HM's Wikipedia page states he had 15.5 sacks in 1976 and 23 in 1977. Hard to trust those 100% but I'm guessing they aren't too far wrong. RW's page has him down for 111 sacks over his career.

Deacon Jones reckons he had 27 sacks one season in a 14 game season!

This seems to have fixed itself, 25 sacks so far, 5th overall in the league.

(The sceptic in me would look at the shaky O lines and occasional inexperienced QB we've faced but hey, why put a downer on things. )

Not sure about fixing itself-more to do with D Law hoping for big money and the rest chipping in! But hey we have monsters all of a sudden
