Unitas would be amused at feud about Flacco playing him in a movie

Having co-hosted a pre-game radio show with John Unitas for four years while producing the radio broadcasts on WCBM for the Baltimore Colts, I think John would be laughing over the family feud about Joe Flacco portraying him in a movie. John would probably remark that Joe is a little too tall for the role.

John had a great sense of humor, and I think he would have approved of Joe Flacco's own "golden arm." As a Ravens season ticket holder, I can attest to both quarterbacks "coolness quotient." Their demeanor is remarkably alike. In time, opponents may fear Joe as they feared John.

I only wonder who is going as me, John's broadcasting partner, in the movie. How about Brad Pitt?
