Brothers Of The Legacy, Part 4

Posted by Matt Terl on January 27, 2011 – 3:50 pm

Vince Lombardi’s tenure with the Redskins was too short by any measure, but especially so if you ask Sonny Jurgensen. He says as much in this installment of Brothers Of The Legacy, he says it when asked about the Broadway show Lombardi … it’s something Jurgensen clearly feels. Lombardi, he always says, made the game simple for him — and the statistics show it. Under Lombardi, Jurgensen had one of his best seasons as a pro, completing 62 percent of his passes for 3,102 yards in just 14 games — the last time in his career that he would break the 3,000 yard plateau.

And that’s what this fourth installment of the documentary covers: not just Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff, but the coach who reignited both their careers: Vince Lombardi. (On a less somber, meaningful note, you get to see Jurgensen doing drills while wearing an old-school Curly W Washington Senators cap — there’s a screencapture after the jump.)
