Jim Marshall Football Blooper In a 1964 Vikings-49ers game, Jim Marshall of Minnesota recovers a San Francisco fumble and takes off on a memorable run--in the wrong direction. The result was two points for the 49ers. (The Vikings won 27-22 anyway.)

A similar play occurred in the 1929 Rose Bowl game--but the goof was more costly. Roy Reigels of California picked up a Georgia Tech fumble. Like Jim Marshall, he took off in the wrong direction. A teammate tackled him inside the Cal one-yard line. Cal then had a punt blocked through the end zone for a Tech safety. Georgia Tech won the game 8-7.

The defense isn't really know for their intelligence!

I love how #77 on San Francisco gives Marshall a pat on the back.

You have to take into consideration that the Vikings weren't that good in 1964. Four years later they would begin to terrorize the NFL.

I live in Minnesota and met Jim Marshall in a sports conference at the University of Minnesota.

For many years he was a rather pompous and haughty character. But he has mellowed in his later years and today serves as a true role model for youth. It was experiences like this one that humbled him and made him a better person.
