Default A great football book - My recommendation & yours?

A few weeks ago I was listening to Mad dog Chris Russo's show on my drive home and he had a writer named Jack Gilden on. He was talking about a book called Collision of Wills, which was about the relationship between Don Shula and Johnny Unitas. It sounded intriguing, so I bought a copy. This weekend I had a chance to read it and I could not put it down. I highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys reading about vintage football.

Anyone got an idea for my next read?

If you can find it, I highly recommend "About Three Bricks Shy of a Load: The year the Steelers were super but missed the bowl" by Roy Blount Jr. (1974).
