Weekend Egnorance: Namath vs. Unitas, September 24, 1972

One of the greatest NFL games ever played.

I was a huge Joe Namath fan as a kid. He was an astonishingly elegant quarterback. It seems an odd word to use for an athlete, but his dropback, his footwork, his release, and his passing were like ballet. My dream was to play football like Namath. I had all of the ingredients except the talent!

Johnny Unitas and Joe Namath

A nice short video on his 6 touchdowns in that legendary game against Johnny Unitas and the Colts. Probably the greatest passing game ever played!
