It’s Pigskin Season


With last Sunday’s win over the Eagles, things may actually be looking up for the Redskins. Those who spend their Sundays devoted to the game might be interested in a new book by former quarterback Ron Jaworski, The Games That Changed the Game: The Evolution of the NFL in Seven Sundays ("Ron Jaworski Looks at the Evolution of Pro Football," AP, Oct. 4, 2010) . Jaworski focuses on seven coaches, including Sid Gillman, Don Coryell and Bill Walsh, whose innovations have raised the game to new heights.

You can place a hold on Jaworski’s book in our catalog and be among the first to get it when it arrives; if you want to check out some gridiron books already on our shelves, here are some suggestions:
