About this book

Book Summary

An up-close look inside an NFL powerhouse, from the only writer in America who players and coaches would trust with their secrets. Despite--or perhaps because of--its immense popularity, the NFL remains one of the most secretive sports in America. John Feinstein goes behind the scenes of this closed sport as he takes his readers through an NFL season--all the ups and downs, the procession from 100 degree heat in training camp to frigid cold in January, and the week-to-week pressures faced by the coaches and players--in an incredibly illuminating and entertaining look at the most lucrative sport in America. Next Man Up highlights the Baltimore Ravens, one of the most watched and dramatic NFL teams in recent years.
