"This Week in Pro Football" was the forerunner for the modern day weekly NFL recap shows that used humor to describe the week's action right up to and after the first week of the playoffs. I wasn't born yet when this series first aired, but after watching it in reruns, I got a chance to see what professional football was like in the late 60's through the mid 70's around the time before and after the 1970 AFL/NFL merger and some of the comical quips used in the show are timeless classics. This was before the "NFL Sunday Ticket", before the 24-hour cable sports networks and before the modern era of expansion, multi-million dollar signing bonuses and all of the teams having colored facemasks as well as modern day free agency. "This Week In Pro Football" will always be a timeless piece in the history of professional football.
