Abstract:

In-depth profiles of the 50 greatest NFL players of all time. Explores the men, moments and circumstances that have shaped the league. An exciting history of the game, with profiles of its greatest players. At the heart of Football's Greatest Stars are detailed profiles of the 50 greatest players of professional history. They're all here -- the original heroes, the '80s superstars and the future Hall of Famers. Football is followed by more fans than any other sport in the United States. It's also cherished by big businesses, which pay $2.7 million for a 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl. Why is professional football so popular? How did it get that way? Who are the men who carried this storied league to the biggest stage in the United States? Allan Maki assesses the NFL's rise to greatness with three compelling essays on the men, the moments and the circumstances that have created the game that's watched today by hundreds of millions of people worldwide. In addition to the player profiles, 32 franchise profiles chart the league's rise to greatness. Football's Greatest Stars is a superb book for fans, and a compelling history of a great game.
