To have coached at the highest level and then moved into the administrative and management realm and know what you're talking about in both is relatively unique. Pat can 'talk the talk' to players but still speak the language of contracts and deals. … see full wiki

Too Basic for the Avid Football Fan

For avid football fans this book is pretty much useless.   It’s too basic and really not that interesting.  Almost everything in the book the avid fan will already know.

There are some decent chapters in the book.  Chapter 4 on running backs, especially the differences in skill sets and what makes one running back better suited to a team’s scheme than another was well done. 

Chapter 6, with it’s explanation of zone blocking schemes was well done as well and should help the average fan understand the differences in line technique.

And Chapter 8’s explanation of the differences between a 3-4 and 4-3 defense were nicely done.

Otherwise, if you know your football, there is not much here for you.
