NFL Century: the one-hundred-year rise of America's greatest sports league

NFL Century

The definitive history of the NFL in honor of the league's one hundredth season, from the former executive director of the Pro Football Hall of Fame
 
"I can think of no one better qualified--or more enthusiastic--to chronicle the National Football League's century-long history than Joe Horrigan."--Marv Levy, Hall of Fame NFL coach
 
The NFL has come a long way from its founding in Canton, Ohio, in 1920. In the hundred years since that fateful day, football has become America's most popular and lucrative professional sport. The former scrappy upstart league that struggled to stay afloat has survived a host of challenges--the Great Depression and World War II, controversies and scandals, battles over labor rights and competition from rival leagues--to produce American icons like Vince Lombardi, Joe Montana, and Tom Brady. Its extraordinary and entertaining history could only be told by Joe Horrigan, perhaps the greatest living historian of the NFL, who draws upon decades of NFL archives. Compelling, eye-opening, and authoritative, NFL Century is a must-read for NFL fans and anyone who loves the game of football.
