Football's a game and it's meant to be fun, which is what I hope this book is for you. You'll be reading stuff that's in my head but that I don't really have enough time to talk about during the games. I'll take you around the NFL, from the sidelines to the Fox broadcast booth. I'll look at the players and coaches and owners and talk about broadcasting - about what I do and how I do it.
What does it mean to be "All-Madden"? It's a whole range of things. For defensive linemen and linebackers, it's about Jack Youngblood playing with a busted leg, Lawrence Taylor wreaking havoc on the offense, and Reggie White making the other guy wish he put a little more money in the collection plate at church. It's about a guy who's got a dirty uniform, mud on his face, and grass in the ear hole of his helmet.
Then there are the guys who lead them - like Jimmy Johnson, who loved the game so much he came back to take over the Miami Dolphins from the best coach in the NFL, Don Shula. Don and George Allen were the men I looked up to when I was head coach of the Oakland Raiders. Not to mention Vince Lombardi, who showed me there was a lot about football I still needed to learn when he gave an eight-hour lecture on one play.
Hey, there's all that and more in here. Find out where to find the best tamales, what's wrong with free agency and the salary cap, and the stuff I'd like to see happen to improve football.
