30 for 30: Elway to Marino (2013)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

If you weren't alive in 1983 but listen to many experts, most will say that that year's draft was the greatest in NFL history for a number of reasons. One was that the top of the draft gave us several future Hall of Fame players. Another thing it did was give us quarterbacks like Elway and Marino and this here helped change the game. This year's draft also gave us some melodrama and soap opera effects, which helped make the draft the highly watchable event that it is today. This documentary covers everything that was going on in the draft including Elway being taken number one by the Baltimore Colts but he refused to play for them. We see all the behind the scenes stuff that was going on to try and get him away from Baltimore but we also see what the other teams in the draft were trying to do to land him. We also get to hear from Marino who ended up being the sixth of six quarterbacks taken in this first round. The documentary really did a great job at going through every aspect of this special draft and showing us how much drama was actually going on. Best of all is that we get to hear from both Elway and Marino but also their agent who just happened to be the same guy. Hearing from all three of them was terrific because they really give us a great look at what was going on then and they also can tell us how they feel about it now. This is especially interesting because what Elway did is something that many people looked down upon yet today he is still a legend. Fans of football are certainly going to enjoy this but even if you're not a fan there's still plenty here to keep you entertained.
