“Lederer sets the record straight about that landmark game... A very satisfying sports book.” —BOOKLIST

It was one of the greatest upsets in Pro Football history...


Although a lot has been said and written about the momentous game that was 1969's Super Bowl III, a significant number of the players that made the New York Jets' historic victory possible has been overshadowed by a talented quarterback with a big #12 on his back.

Beyond Broadway Joe celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1968-69 Super Bowl Jets' historic season. Through interviews with 38 surviving players, unprecedented access to the archives of the team's coaching staff (including the personal records of head coach and general manager Weeb Ewbank), and even discussions with NFL and AFL players who faced off against the '68 Jets, Beyond Broadway Joe is the definitive account of the games, the climate, but above all the people that made that historic Super Bowl III win possible.
