Stitching together first-person accounts from players who span the spectrum of playing days, For the Glory of Their Game takes fans not only inside the sport, not only inside specific games, but inside the mind of the men making the action happen. For decades, Richard Whittingham covered professional football as a reporter and researcher and this book stands as the product of all that work, with anecdotes and accounts gathered from such football icons as: Jim Brown, Roger Staubach, Jim McMahon, Bo Jackson, Frank Gifford, Joe Namath, Tony Dorsett, Mike Ditka, and Terry Bradshaw. No other book this fall captures the scope and detail across the decades, from team to team, that For the Glory of Their Game offers casual and diehard fans.
