I was lucky enough to get my hands on a review copy of a new book titled “Football’s Greatest” from Sports Illustrated. This massive (10′ x 13′, 288 pages) hard cover book is one of those books any serious football fan must have sitting on their bookshelf.
The book is a group effort by seven Sports illustrated senior writers and editors who cover the NFL. They’ve taken on the painstaking job of ranking the NFL’s historical best of the best in over 20 categories. Best quarterbacks, best linebackers, best stadiums, best franchises, etc.
Whether you’re a Packers fan or a fan of any of the “Other 31,” it’s easy for me to say you’ll love this book.
If you are a Packers fan, I can tell you that your team is very well represented, with 22 selections in 17 categories, including three #1 rankings and 14 in the top five. I can tell you that naturally, Vince Lombardi was selected as the greatest coach in NFL History, and there is one Packers player omitted that really rankles me. I don’t want to be a spoiler, so you’ll have to read the book to find out who the other Packers selections are.
