San Francisco 49ers

Frankie Albert - the Little General

Gary MialocqContributor IJuly 16, 2009

Albert returned to the 49ers as head coach in 1956 and had a 19-16-1 record in three seasons.

Frankie set the tone for all Niner quarterbacks to follow. He was small, but feisty and tough. I salute the Father of our Quarterbacks, Frankie Albert -- a great player.
