This is a must read for pro football fans. The book provides an eye-opening behind the scences description of the players, coaches, GMs that make up a pro team. The weekly decisions on players, the injuries and the issues that blind-side the team. The author is very fair and lets you see the people behind the headlines (e.g. Coach Billick, Jamal and Ray Lewis, Deion Sanders, Orlando Brown and Kyle Boller). Even as a long time devoted fan of the NFL I was surprised and intrigued by what I read. Certainly adds to my appreciation of the work, pain and suffering that is so central to the three hours of showtime we see on television.
