    Was sad to read this. Always seemed like a gentleman.

    Sorry to hear that.

    I loved the chemistry he had with MNF co-hosts Dan Dierdorff and Al Michaels back in the day.

    RIP

    RIP Mr. Gifford. Prayers for his family. He lived a life most only dream about, he had a great run.

    I wonder what NFL stars like Frank Gifford were paid back in the 50s. I suspect he made more money doing tv than he did as a player.

    He did live a good, long life as far as we know. Was it a heart attack?

    Would be hard to say he didn't have a great run. I really enjoyed him in broadcasts.

    Old timey football had some hard hits, and not as restrictive rules. Surprised both of those guys lived so long, well past 80.

    And both of them were Pro Bowl MVP's, won the NFL championship, and are in the hall of fame, so it wasn't like they sat on the bench :)

    Bednarik was also a waist gunner, flying in 30 freaking combat missions over Germany!
