Yeah, but Plunkett didn't really excell until he went to the Raiders. Was average for us.
Brodie was known for being an excellent passer but having difficulty in big games. Of course, in big games he was playing great teams so...whatever! He could really thread a pass, strong arm, good touch. Strong in the pocket and a smart player...Stanford QB.
Brodie threw the most beautiful spiral and he was a great golfer. I go back to Y. A. (Tittle that is), if you ever get a chance check out his bootleg at the goal line, it's textbook.

I was very young when Tittle was playing but recall my dad and grandfather arguing who was better...Tittle or Albert. My grandfather had played before the NFL was formed and loved guys who played the entire way, as he did.

After football, 'cause they didn't make much money way back then, one of the ways Brodie made money was playing golf with various suckers and winning money on bets they made during the round. He was that good an athlete.

That clip is awesome. I remember watching that highlight show with brookshire and summeral every week as a kid. No Internet or espn! Man was it a different game. Did you notice the hit on Namath? That is a penalty now....he did not even look at the ref for a call. Thanks for posting this. Can you tell me where you got it?


And the guy who put that hit on Namath was a real bada**, #86 Cedrick Hardman, the 49ers' all-time sack leader.
