I had me a pretty good day yesterday.
As previously discussed, the morning brought a terrific review of Tom Brady vs. the NFL: The Case for Football’s Greatest Quarterback from Kevin Braig, Quant Coach, on Cold, Hard Football Facts.
Evening produced yet another well-written and very positive review of the book. This time from Steve Balestrieri of PatsFans.com. I didn’t fret over this one like I did about the CHFF review, largely because I didn’t know it was in the works until pretty late in the game. But I’ve got to know Steve on line (and a bit on the radio) and I can assure you he knows his football and his Patriots, so his opinion means a lot to me.
Again, I’ll pull out a few favorite quotes:
“Perhaps the greatest thing about this book is that Glennon puts out his beliefs that Brady is the best quarterback ever to play the game. And then backs them up with facts. But the manner in which he does so is not to insult or belittle the many great quarterbacks that have come before Brady. No talk about modeling or marrying a supermodel, or his hair. If you’re looking for the TMZ version of Brady, this one isn’t for you, but if you want to talk about and read about football this book will be manna from heaven.”
“The book is a fantastic read; I received it and couldn’t put it down until it was done in the wee hours of the morning. It is a must read not only for die-hard Patriots fans but fans of the NFL as well. Glennon makes some very compelling arguments for Brady as the best QB ever to lace them up.”
So, you know, that’ll make a guy feel pretty good. Go read the whole thing, because Steve’s got a lot of interesting stuff to say.
