Overview

Take Your Eye Off the Ball: How to Watch Football by Knowing Where to Look by Pat Kirwan, David Seigerman

Today's NFL fans have more viewing options than ever before. Each and every week, football addicts plant themselves in front of big-screen, high-definition TVs and watch the game they love unfold via slow-motion replays and multiple camera angles, pausing and fast-forwarding the action on their DVRs as they please. Yet while more and more football fans are watching the NFL each week, many of them don't know exactly what they should be watching. Take Your Eye Off the Ball is not a beginner's introduction to football, nor is it a technical manual for only the most studious of fans. Instead, it clearly and simply explains the intricacies and nuances that affect the outcomes of every NFL game.

Best informative football book I've read. Would love to find more like this. Explains why certain decisions are made on the field, and the thought processes and strategies behind them. Especially enjoyed all the time devoted to linemen in this book. Highly recommended for the football fan looking to get more from the game. Only complaint is the diagrams at the back are too small on the Nook Color.

I love football. Every level from a sandlot, college, pro, and fantasy football, I love this game. The book opened my mind to whole new level of appreciation and understanding of football. This book is a must read if you are the type of fan that will watch a whole game and not just catch the highlights and watch the stats.

I would recommend purchasing the actual book so that you can see the diagrams. But I loved the way he explains football. Understanding the game makes the "football experience" much more enjoyable when you know what to look for. I understand play calling better, and personnel selections better, and why certain players do better on certain teams, and how offenses and defenses are built. Through that I now have a respect for football that has made my passion for it grow. I loved this book, and it has truly done wonders for my anger issues on Sunday when watching my team.
