Trying to help Packers fans cheer up ....

In his N.Y Times review, Joe Queenan says Lou Sahadi's "Johnny Unitas: America's Quarterback" is a little too rah-rah for Johnny U. at the expense of other Hall of Fame QBs.

Queenan writes that in the 10 years between the Colts' legendary 1958 championship victory and its equallly-legendary 1969 Super Bowl loss,

"Unitas compiled innumerable statistical records, but the Colts were forced to cede pride place to Vince Lombardi's Packers, generally thought to be the greatest football dynasty of them all. The Packers were led by Bart Starr, who set few, if any, records. He merely won."
