    The original passing QB. I saw a bunch of the features on him on NFLn and was impressed. Cheers to him and his great career. May he rest in peace

    A true original and icon of the NFL.
    Guys like him built this league.
    Godspeed Sammy.
    Incidentally- one of the best pics I ever saw was Y.A. Tittle on his knees in defeat.
    Love to have that framed.
