Product Details


“Believe me, it is a daunting challenge to weave a narrative from the years of Jim Thorpe and Fritz Pollard to the years of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Joe Horrigan pulls it off elegantly in NFL Century. His choice of subjects to highlight is spot-on. His reporting sheds new light on decades-old events. A century of rollicking pro football history flies by.”—John Eisenberg, author of The League: How Five Rivals Created the NFL and Launched a Sports Empire
“Joe Horrigan may not have witnessed all one hundred seasons of the NFL in person, but it seems that way. The legends and lore of professional football come to life in NFL Century just as if we were back in the years and decades in which they lived. Some of the story lines we know; others are a revelation. I’ve known and worked with Joe since the eighties, and every time he talks about the history of the NFL you can see the twinkle in his eyes. That very same twinkle appears throughout these pages.”—Chris Berman, ESPN Sportscaster
“An entertaining, passionate, and educational rags-to-riches story of the NFL’s greatest names, games, and events of the past one hundred seasons of America’s most popular sport. NFL Century should be on the shelf of every football fan’s library.”—Chris Willis, head of the Research Library at NFL Films, author of Red Grange

“[Horrigan] delivers an expansive and celebratory history of the NFL. . . . Sports fans will find plenty to sink their teeth into, as Horrigan provides detailed and lively depictions of stars and coaches from various teams, including Joe Namath and the Jets’ legendary Super Bowl III triumph, the successes of the 1972 undefeated Dolphins, and the recent Patriots dynasty. This fast-paced history will thrill football fans of all allegiances.”Publishers Weekly
