Happy Birthday to former Dallas Cowboys QB Craig Morton!
He played quarterback in the National Football League for 18 seasons, 1965-82. Morton played for the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and the Denver Broncos; he played college football at the University of California.
Morton was the first quarterback in NFL history to start the Super Bowl for two different teams (Dallas in Super Bowl V and Denver in Super Bowl XII), a feat that has only been equaled by Kurt Warner.
Following his playing career, Morton served as head coach of the USFL’s Denver Gold.
