Fearsome, nasty, fast, and large, Jon was a true road grading offensive lineman who struck fear into opposing defenders. Considered one of the dirtiest players of his era- he fit right in with the Philadelphia Eagles. Jon was also remarkably durable, despite his 6’8″, 299 frame, he started 190 straight contests. His son followed in his footsteps and was drafted by the Packers in 2020.
At the time of his retirement in 2009, Jon was the last remaining player who had played for the HOUSTON Oilers franchise.

Patrick appears in not only Tecmo Bowl but also in Tecmo Super Bowl, but didn’t have that many cards. He had a few off-brand and Topps cards, but these represented the only set needs I really had. He had a really interesting helmet. I believe that it was the same issue that the World League used during 1991-92.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
