I remember Tim Green when he played for Syracuse and then Atlanta. Being from Syracuse, I’m a big Orange fan. Bob Costas hit the nail on the head when he said, of Green, “One is considered fortunate to be blessed with either brain or brawn. Tim Green has been blessed with both.” This is the first book I’ve read by Green. It’s a fantastic book about football as a rookie in the NFL. So many thoughts went through my head when I was reading. How much of this book was autobiographic? I hope almost none of it. OK, I hope only the good things. Reading this book, I can see this actually happening to a great NFL player. That’s why I wondered if some of it isn’t based on Green’s experiences. If you are a big football fan, better yet, if you have played the game, this is a really great book for you. It’s a little bit Hollywood at the end, but it isn’t too unrealistic. I think I’m going to read another book by Green. I’m impressed!
