he was the super bowl winning qb of the first super bowl i watched in the 1970 season.
first round pick of the 49ers in 1957.
played 21 seasons.
he was a very solid qb; not elite, but solid.

he did a great job for the dolphins when griese got hurt in 72. when i was a kid watching him play , for some dumb reason i thought the players really looked cool when they taped their wrists
He was a classy guy.

RIP sir.
I wasn't aware that he was originally drafted by the 49ers.

Everyone has had nothing but nice things to say about him. RIP
If he had beat the Jets in the 1969 Super Bowl...................
