Bob Griese Biography - Baseball Or Football?, Difficult Start In Miami, Shula And Griese: A Perfect Combination, Chronology - SELECTED WRITINGS BY GRIESE:

field fame quarterback hall

1945-

American football player

Hall of fame quarterback Bob Griese, six-feet-one-inch and 190 pounds, did not possess exceptional speed or a necessarily spectacular throwing arm, but his ability to read defenses, deliver passes with pin-point precision, and lead his team methodically down the field is legendary. Often referred to as a field general, Griese thrived as the quarterback of the Miami Dolphins during the 1970s under the direction of hall of fame coach Don Shula. Griese appeared in three consecutive Super Bowls, winning two (1973-1974).

Bob Griese very kindly wrote me back whenever I wrote him. He is a gentleman. He may have been tired that one day when he didn't sign your autograph, Dottie, but my experience has been that he is a man full of class.

Now Bob knows people have feelings. In his early years with Miami I witnessed Bob hurting young fans feelings by snobbing them or refusing to sign autographs because he was mad about loosing the game. Talking about building a fan club this was not the way to do it. This was after he had changed into street clothes. You never know when coaches friends might be around to witness things!

I agree with you. I will never forget being in Las Vegas when this nice looking blue eyed guy came up to me and said," I just lost $25,000". I told him sorry. My husband came up to me very excited and asked if I knew who that was. I just said some nice looking guy with blue eyes. It was then that I was told the "guy" was the quarterback for the Dolphins. My reaction was,"he's sl little for a football player!"
