Book Review - Sports Illustrated Football's Greatest
Who's the greatest quarterback of all time, Joe Montana or Tom Brady? Who was the most dominate linebacker, Lawrence Taylor or Dick Butkus? Are the Packers or the Steelers the greatest franchise ever? Are the undefeated 1972 Dolphins really the best "team" in the history of the league?
In FOOTBALL'S GREATEST, Sports Illustrated's team of NFL experts names the Top 10 in more than 20 categories not just by position player, but also the best stadiums, rivalries, coaches and even trades. The rankings appear alongside SI's renowned reporting and over 200 stunning photos of the pro football's greatest players and heart-stopping plays. This is the best of the NFL's best, or more simply, FOOTBALL'S GREATEST.
My Take on the Book
If you call yourself a fan of Football, this is a book you need to have on your coffee table. The book may definitely cause some heated discussion between friends, especially as you read the tp ten lists in the different categories within the book, but what is better than a bit of heated dialogue about who some of the best football players of all time were?
This book really went into depth on so many of the great players in the history of the sport and you get to know them, but also the sport so much more by going through these pages. On top of that the images within this book are amazing and transport you back to many of the paramount points in the history of football which was so much fun to read about and in some cases, experience for the first time.
One other thing that I loved about the book were the person remembrances and quotes that people shared about the individuals or the games in question. These let you see a whole new side to the person/event being examined which made these come alive even further for the reader as a whole.
All-in-all, this was a great book that I would recommend for any football fan!
