Before his acting days in the Miller Light commercials or playing Moses Hightower in the Police Academy movies Bubba Smith discussed with NBC how he and the Baltimore Colts planned on stopping Joe Namath and the New York Jets in the 1969 Super Bowl.

Bubba said that Joe Namath sets deep into the backfield and he hoped they would get a jump on the ball and catch him as he is going back. The Colts only got to Joe Namath twice for total of 11 yards lost for the entire game. The Jets went on to win Super Bowl by the score of 16-7.

Sadly, we lost Bubba Smith at the age of 66 on August 3, 2011.
