Abstract:

In the summer of 2006, the NFL's most senior general manager, Ernie Accorsi, invited sports journalist Tom Callahan "inside" the Giants organization to experience a season--Accorsi's last--from the front office, the locker room, the sidelines, and the tunnel. The result is at once a chronicle of a tumultuous season and the story of the NFL over the last three and a half decades. In a marriage of two great raconteurs, one lobbing stories and the other neatly catching them, Callahan and Accorsi--writer and subject--show how the pro game (and the league that showcases it) really works, and the peculiar role of today's general manager, who must be part seer, part accountant, and, in Accorsi's case, a consummate football-personnel strategist who, over the course of decades, gave everything to the game he loved.--From publisher description.
