My Teeth Hurt

One of my favorite Johnny Unitas stories was told by Baltimore Colts’ Hall-of-Fame tight end, John Mackey.  It had been said by Unitas’ receivers that he was so accurate that if he threw you a pass in your gut, it meant catch the football and go down, because you were about to get hit from behind.  If he threw the football up and out over your head, it meant you were wide open and you needed to turn and run under the football, catch it and score.  If he threw the football wide of you, it meant you needed to lay out for the catch or knock it down to keep it from being intercepted.  So when back-up quarterback Earl Morrall took over in a game for an injured Johnny Unitas and threw a pass up and out to tight-end John Mackey, “I got hit so hard my teeth hurt,” said Mackey.
