Guys,

Im sure we have a lot of readers and fans of books on football.  Im looking for a new one, other than the blind side...any ideas:

Ive read these so far...

Uncommon: Finding your path to significance by Dungy (Of Course, buts its a great motivational book)
The Genius: How Bill Walsh Reinvented Football and Created an NFL Dynasty
Ocho Cinco: What Football and Life Have Thrown My Way
and Inside the Helmet by Mike Strahan

Idk about you guys but im really into the books that take you on the field.  Any ideas out there??

It's great.  Very inspirational.   One of my favorite parts is when he's explaining how he was interviewed by Al Davis.   So in depth.   But Gruden was ready for those type of questions.   I can only imagine Raheem being interviewed like that.   "Uh, I'm just gonna be my own best self" would be his answer to every question because he wouldn't know the actual answers.

I have read Dungys book Quiet Strength. Grudens book and Running for my life the story about Warrick Dunn. I would recommend any of the three.

Some oldies but goodies include Jack Tatum's "They Call Me Assassin" and Roy Blount's "Three Bricks Shy of a Load" about the 1970s era Steelers.

I prefer to stay away from books written or co-written by coaches or players. A couple I'd recommend:

The GM: The Inside Story of a Dream Job and the Nightmares that Go with It by Tom Callahan

The Draft: A Year Inside the NFL's Search for Talent by Pete Williams

The Education of a Coach by David Halberstam

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
