I'm late seeing this or else I would have commented earlier.
As probably a lot of people know, Y A was part of the "million dollar backfield" Hugh McElhenny, John Henry Johnson, and Joe Perry were the other members. The 49ers of the 50's were an exciting team that could put lots of points on the board. The only problem was that they allowed the other teams to put more points on the board.
When Y A was traded to the New York Giants in 1961 I cried. And I am not ashamed of that.
