Review

Sports historians will long argue the significance of the third championship football game, but most agree it put the word super in Super Bowl, as NFL Films poignantly shows in this 75-minute video. The best thing about this video is that you get to see every play at least once, and the key plays several times. You also get valuable insight from N.Y. Jets quarterback Joe Willie Namath, Jets coach Weeb Ewbank, Colts coach Don Shula, and other players. The key figure, just as he was in the game, is Namath, the flamboyant quarterback whose style stood out during an era when flamboyance and wild styles were the norm. He launched the Super Bowl as a sports spectacular by stating, "We're gonna win this game. I guarantee it." NFL Films, with announcer Curt Gowdy, who did the play-by-play for NBC on January 12, 1969, goes into great depth to explain the historical importance of the outcome. It certified the old AFL, represented by the Jets, as a sports entity and legitimized the merger of the NFL and AFL into one league in 1970. Add to this Namath's statement and the turbulent times in America in 1969, and this game takes on significant historical meaning. This is an entertaining video about a sports moment that launched the NFL on its spiraling orbit upward. --Gordie Sholtys
