In today’s installment of the Brothers Of The Legacy documentary, Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff continue to play at a Hall of Fame level, and their peers offer up testimonials to their awesomeness. Plus, an entertaining retelling of Huff (and the Redskins) humiliating the Giants for trading him; Huff’s visible glee — even all these years later — at the firing of Giants coach Allie Sherman cracks me up every time. “He talks about it every day,” Jurgensen says, and he’s not lying.
I think the high point for me, though, is the play-by-play guy calling Jurgensen’s first game against the Eagles. Not only does he repeatedly refer to the quarterback as “Jurgy,” but he unleashes this SportsCenter-esque description of a pass: “Sonny hurls a honey to Bobby Mitchell, and it’s touchdown, Washington!”
