Overview

Football history smudges out 1960 as down time between golden ages. Unitas's Colts of '58 and '59 thrust football into the national consciousness with their sudden-death, Nielsen-friendly championship drama. Lombardi's '60s dynasty, a litany of legends, kicked off the Super Bowl era. Wedged in between were the 1960 Philadelphia Eagles, unfairly dismissed as the team with nothing but a championship. This book chronicles that team, which had so much more than a championship; it was a team that had grit, heart, and old-time characters who compensated for their lack of glitz with a remarkable group dynamic, and a leader who transformed the ordinary into the extraordinary.
