    Brodie's #12 un-retired.

    KFFL
    49ers | Brodie's No. 12 coming out of retirement
    Fri, 14 Jul 2006 20:26:24 -0700

    Dennis Georgatos, of the San Jose Mercury News, reports the San Francisco 49ers are bringing former QB John Brodie's No. 12 jersey out of retirement. QB Trent Dilfer will wear the jersey as a tribute to Brodie, his longtime friend. Sue Brodie said team owner John York has agreed to the request and she added, "He said we'll put it back into mothballs after this. There's an agreement between the 49ers and John that this is a one-time deal. They've signed off on that." Dilfer hopes to build a sentiment for a drive to get Brodie into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and raise public awareness about stroke victims by bringing the number back into circulation.

    COOL!!! Dilfer is a good guy!

    But if John Brodie belongs in the HOF, then so does Jim Marshall...and Mick Tingelhoff too!!!

    Is Dilfer the right person to do that?

    Ya, its TRENT DILFER. Shure, he's won a Super Bowl, but seriously were not talking like he's going into the HOF.



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    I was thinking that he'd married Brodie's daughter, but a couple minutes of googling shows me that that is Chris Chandler.

    I'd forgotten that Brodie had a stroke a few years back.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
