Baseball Or Football?, Difficult Start In Miami, Shula And Griese: A Perfect Combination, ChronologySELECTED WRITINGS BY GRIESE:


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).
