Dilfer chat

The incongruous QB

By Times staff writer

© St. Petersburg Times, published January 27, 2001


Dilfer is not the prototype quarterback. He is not from a football-rich pocket of the United States where quarterbacks are bred -- like the steel towns of Western Pennsylvania, where Johnny Unitas, Joe Namath, Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Jim Kelly and even Sunday counterpart Kerry Collins were born and raised.

Dilfer is from Santa Cruz, a Pacific Coast town where one of the favorite local dishes is broccoli pizza, where surfing is a profession and the most prominent local college team draws laughs.
