Overview

Year after year, Sunday afternoons and Monday nights during the NFL season have belonged to men. While they cheer and argue play calls, the women in their lives are relegated to beer and chip detail. It's time for these women to join the action, and Holly Robinson Peete, star of 21 Jump Street, For Your Love, and Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, and wife of NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, has written this hip, smart, cheerful guide to help them do so.

Peete shares her infectious enthusiasm for pro football and takes the complexity out of the game by breaking it down to its component parts. She explains the role of each position player, provides a rundown of all on-field penalties and referees' hand signals, and offers an illustrated guide to some of the most common plays in the NFL. She gives her take on the most memorable plays in NFL history and dishes some inside dirt-in a breezy, girl-talkin' narrative that promises to turn the novice spectator into a well-informed football fanatic.

I could never fully grasp the details of the game until reading this book. Sista girl broke it down in a way that I understood immediately. My first read was courtesy of the Public Library. I will be buying my own copy for future reference.

Very entertaining and written for a woman. If you want to understand a little more about the NFl and football in general-this was a good easy read. I like all the top 10 lists (top ten football movies etc....)

Attempting to learn about football. Hopefully this is a good starter. I have absolutely no knowledge about this sport. I find some of it confusing and some makes sense. Probally have to re-read it to absorb it.
