I have to say, I was extremely impressed with how NFL Films handled their coverage of Jerry Smith: A Football Life. It covered the era, expressed the esteem that Jerry was held in by his teammates and alluded to the question regarding was his sexual orientation preventing his enshrinement into the HOF. I believe that the program can still be found on the nfl.com website and for fans that want to see hands in action, there is a nice set of clips that are quite representative of Smith's career that illustrate just how good he was on the field and what a weapon he was during those Redskin years of Jurgensen, Lombardi and Allen.
I urge you all who are unacquainted with this man to get acquainted with a bit of Redskin history, as it does a fine job of showing how Smith's position as a player was a reflection of the times and how he carried himself as a man. Try to understand the context of where we are then and where we are today.
Full of interviews with a pantheon of Redskin greats: Jurgy, Kilmer, Owens, Brown and some interesting storytelling.
