Editorial Review

Journalists Johnson and Maki celebrate the NFL's 100th anniversary in this impressive ranking of what the authors consider to be the best athletes ever to play professional football... Johnson and Maki dive into a century's worth of star players, and pay ample attention to the less-glamorous positions of centers and safeties... Complete with quality photographs and a thoughtful introduction that marks how the NFL has adapted to cultural changes over the years, Johnson and Maki's book would be a welcome debate-starter for any NFL fan.
