he once threw 4 TDs and also had 4 INTs in ONE GAME!! also let the league in punting average with 51.4 in 1940...i think its still a record. He was a versatile beast

Well before my day, but a legend and trailblazer who transformed the position. My thoughts are out to his family today.

Everytime I think of Sammy Baugh, I think of the sunset around the North Texas area where he lived. I did a security assesment for a Gypsum plant up there and, we were going to one of thier outlying facilities when the company red said, right over there is where Sammy Baugh lives. I was like...Wow! The sunset was brilliant red and orange. I remember thinking about what a wonderful place that must've been to live and die.

He was well before my day too, but I've seen him on TV.
