    pathetic

    While so many great books about the legendary Lombardi Packers exist, this is not one of them. It is a juiced up tale of Hornung's football statistics but the annoyingly recurrent theme of his sexual exploits and his gambling success ends up overshadowing the Lombardi team. He's basically just bragging. It is neither funny nor laudable.

    An 'all around player' in more ways than one

    As a college player I always felt Hornung never received te credit he deserved. If the Heisman trophy is supposed to go the the best college football player Honung was probably the awards most legitimate choice. He possesed all the football skills not just a runner, passer or defender, but did it all on both sides of the ball, plus handled the kicking assignments as well. As a pro, there is no question that Lombardi was the best thing to happen to him. His 176 points in one season and 146 points in another that was shortened by Army duty (how many guys would do that today?) are records that are yet to be broken. His 'conqests' off the field are chronicled, but the football stories and reading about a player, that because of the way the game is played now, we'll never see the likes of again, make the story and book unique.
