Most people think Greise QB'd the perfect season, but Griese was injured in Week 5 and Morrall led them to a 14-0 record and Griese didn't play until the AFC Championship game.

THE best backup qb EVER.  He also led the Colts in Super Bowl V to victory when Unitas went out with an injury.  It was his redemption, because many blamed him for the loss to the Jets in Super Bowl III. According to Wikipedia, and they never lie, he was considered (by teammates) to be just as good as Unitas.  In fact, his passer rating that season (97) was higher that Johnny U.
