Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Paul Zimmerman has an advantage over other profootball writers because of two facts. First he was a player, in college and in semipro ball; where he played on the line of scrimmage no less. And second his devotion to covering the game. There is no writer that covers football that has his historical insight into the game, and meticulous analysis of the strategy underlining it. Zimmerman, also known as Dr. Z to Sports Illustrated readers demonstrates this knowledge in his 1984 book The New Thinking Man's Guide to Pro Football. While football is often seen as a game of brutal force, and violence, beneath this are strategies and planning that make it seem more like organized chaos. Every running play to gain a few yards is planned carefully in blocking schemes, the reading of a defense by a quarterback if further appreciated when realizing the pressure put upon the man. Each position of a team is divided, and then broken down by Zimmerman. From the offensive line to the scouting department, he gives the reader a careful understanding of each section that makes up a team. While this book will appeal to the die-hards, it will also appeal to the casual fan; not only in what may be learned, but in the human element as well. There are characters throughout the book, from Conrad Dobler's maniacal play to Joe Don Looney's loony lifestyle. Zimmerman does not forget that while football is a carefully planned sport, it is also a game, and there are many characters over the years that are just that, characters. Also established is the dynamic nature of the sport to show how football is reactionary; where a style of play is established and then acted upon by opposing defenses and offenses, to create a sport that is in constant change. Unlike baseball, basketball, or hockey football is a kinetic sport that is prone to new directions and changes over time, changing in style of play due to minor details and this makes it wholly unique. No other writer has captured this than Paul Zimmerman in writing about football.
HASH(0x8e1c41e0) von 5 Sternen One of the Best Books about Pro Football Written. 8. Juni 2016

I'll admit to some obvious biases in favor of this book. It came out (and I found it in the library) in 1984 just as two things were happened: 1) My interest in pro football was at its peak with stars like Dan Marino and John Elway first making their big splash and the controversies involving the fading Dallas Cowboys (my favorite team) were big news and 2) My time as a high school football player was coming to an end.

Thus, Zimmerman's book addresses things dear to my heart. It would be hard to overstate just how good a job Zimmerman does in addressing the various issues influencing pro football in the early 1980s. His writing is sharp, concise and full of tongue in cheek humor. Check out his comments about the importance of good defensive lineman and how the ultimate results are "more money".

His stories about the craziest football players (besides Joe Don Looney) such as the Raiders Ted Hendricks and John Matusak alone are well worth buying the book.
