Fans of John Brodie, QB of the 49ers from 1957 to 1973, and the great San Francisco 49ers, are helping to get John R Brodie, enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We are asking all fans of the 49ers to write or fax a nominating letter to the hall of Fame, for Brodie to be enshrined as a senior candidate. We have made a webpage and there are addresses and sample letters you can use. The cut off date for a 2009 nomination is March 1, 2008, so we need the letters sent soon, please. Here is the address: Send your letters to: Pro Football Hall of Fame Attn: Nomination Committee 2121 George Halas Drive NW, Canton, OH 44708 or Fax: 330-456-9080 here is the page with the sample letters: http://johnbrodieforfootballhalloffame.bravehost.com/samples.html There is also a Myspace: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=308917219 and an online petition, for fans to sign: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/johnbrodie/ Thanks so much for your help, despite having suffered a severe stroke in 2000, Brodie is still active and follows his beloved 49ers. "Many people we have contacted are surprised that Brodie is not already in the Pro Football Hall of fame because of his awesome stats as a football player. In his seventeen year career with the San Francisco 49ers, John Brodie was one of the foremost quarterbacks in football. A quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers from 1957 through 1973, a 17 year run, John Brodie threw for 31,548 yards and tossed 214 TDs in 201 career games. He appeared in the Pro Bowl in 1965 and 1970. He was named NFL/NFC's Most Valuable Player in 1970. His statistics clearly show him to be worthy of the honor of being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame is the greatest honor that can be bestowed upon a football player and John Brodie is more than worthy of such an honor. He was among the leading passers in the league throughout the 1960s. His best statistical year was 1965 when he led the League in passing average (3,112 yards) and 30 touchdowns. When John Brodie retired from the NFL, he ranked third in the NFL in career passing yards."
