Examining the legends, the myths, and the overhyped moments of America's most popular game, Sal Paolantonio goes behind the highlights, the drama, and the numbers to set some things straight--once and for all--about the game played on Sundays. "The Paolantonio Report" includes chapters analyzing the most underrated and overrated quarterbacks, receivers, running backs, defensive backs, defensive linemen, offensive linemen, linebackers and specialists. For example: The Catch--Joe Montana to Dwight Clark--overrated. Not even in the top ten moments in NFL history. And Chuck Bednarik, the Eagles linebacker who knocked out Frank Gifford? He wasn't that fearsome, and was considered slow and not a very good tackler. Also look for chapters on the most underrated and overrated coaches, teams, offensive and defensive units, Hall of Famers, Super Bowls, and some of the most underrated and overrated moments in the sport's storied history--with plenty of fun sidebars peppered throughout the book. Using an analytical approach that considers decades of stats, trends, and historical data, "The Paolantonio Report" is certain to settle many arguments--and probably just as certain to start many more.
