This section of the book was almost painful as it served as a backdrop of Johnny Unitas’s failing marriage. One gets the feeling Unitas was a man’s man, a lion among his fellow men who had ice water flowing through his veins in the game he played professionally, all the while employing the same personality traits to end his first marriage/5(65).

Get this from a library. Johnny Unitas: and the long pass. [Julian May] -- Traces Johnny Unitas' career in college and professional football. As “the Golden Arm” of the National Football League, Johnny Unitas became ensconced in history as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

With his record of 47 consecutive games throwing a touchdown pass, his performance in the “Greatest Game Ever Played,” ten Pro Bowl appearances, and his steadfast devotion to Baltimore, Unitas /5(7).

The book centers around Johnny Unitas and the Baltimore Colts.

Two years after Fitzgerald’s book, the Johnny Unitas story by Lee Greene is published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons. Greene was a free-lance writer from New York who had written for Sport magazine, Saga and Boy’s Life.

The Johnny Unitas Story was pages long, had 15 chapters and featured 18 photos, some very good. The cover photo shows Unitas in action, arm cocked, looking down field.

Unitas dialed Lenny’s number, and with the mud and the blood streaming down his face he hit the Reading Rocket with a perfectly thrown yard pass in the corner of the end zone. According to Unitas, the date was Oct.

In their seven years together, quarterback Johnny Unitas and coach Don Shula, kings of the fabled Baltimore Colts of the s, created one of the most successful franchises in sports.

Unitas and Shula had a higher winning percentage than Lombardi’s Packers, but together they never won a Brand: UNP - Nebraska. Johnny Unitas started at QB for the first game of the season, a loss to the Redskins. The legend passed for 55 yards with 3 INT’s and was sacked 8 times.

Few athletes in any sport were as universally loved as the late Johnny Unitas. The celebrated quarterback enjoyed a long, storied career most notably with the then-Baltimore Colts, and he held virtually every major passing record at the time of his retirement.

He was truly special on the field. For 52 years he held the record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass (which he set between and ), until quarterback Drew Brees broke his long standing record on October 7, Unitas was the prototype of the modern era marquee quarterback with a strong passing game, media fanfare, and widespread popularity.
