KIRKUS REVIEW

A fifty-yard line view of six winning seasons with different NFL teams, embellished with pro strategies and shower gossip; taking injuries to stop the clock, $7400 in fines from a letter-of-the-law coach, a press box mimeo machine freezing in 20° weather, frenzied fans collapsing buses, a team tackling sportswriters' blurbs. Specifically, the 1940 Chicago Bears, the 1951 Los Angeles Rams, the 1956 New York Giants, the 1958 Baltimore Colts, the 1961 Green Bay Packers, the 1964 Cleveland Browns. Vintage photos too--a sure completion.
