“Pain Gang has such a simple premise: Who is the toughest player to have ever played in the NFL? Neil Reynolds gnaws at this premise as he profiles fifty of the toughest to have ever played, from Bronko Nagurski to Brett Favre, and after the first fifty I wanted to read about the next 150. When the fame and the fortunes fade away, the ultimate feeling that a true warrior wants said about him is 'He was a tough guy.' Pain Gang presents the toughest and most courageous athletes of our time.”
“An exhaustive look at some of the NFL's greatest stars.”
“A really revealing look at how much it hurts to be an NFL player. After you read this book, you’ll know what it’s like to take a gigantic fist to the ribs, as Jack Youngblood felt when he took such a shot from one of the most pain-inflicting players in NFL history, Bob Brown. And you’ll be amazed that human beings can last longer than a year or two in the NFL.”
