CMG Worldwide Welcomes You to the Official Website of Bobby Layne


Remembered as much for his legendary partying as his playing ability, Bobby Layne, nearly 35 years removed from his last pass, is still considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time.

Upon his retirement in 1962, Bobby held the NFL record for most career pass attempts, completions, passing yardage, and touchdown passes (since broken). However, it was his leadership and will to win that, to this day, separate Bobby Layne from his quarterback contemporaries. He willed three average Detroit Lions teams to championships in 1952, 1953, and 1957.

Bobby Layne was rewarded for his 15 years of stalwart quarterbacking with an election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1967.


“The secret to a happy life is to run out of cash and air at the same time.”
Bobby Layne

“Bobby Layne never lost a game. Time just ran out. Nobody hated to lose more than Bobby.”
Doak Walker

“Layne, as bad as he looked throwing the ball, was a winner. You’d work him out and you wouldn’t want him, but you’d want him in your huddle. Players feel that way about a quarterback. When a leader’s in there, they’ll perform.”
Red Hickey
