Summary "Football is the country's most popular pastime, and yet most of what happens in today's NFL is a mystery. The New York Jets gave Nicholas Dawidoff a security code, a locker, an office in the scouting department, and for an entire year he lived with the team. He has written a vivid, funny, and moving narrative about an emblematic NFL season that deepens the way we know the game. In COLLISION LOW CROSSERS, Dawidoff introduces us to a memorable cast of characters: brilliant, polarizing head coach Rex Ryan; the defensive coaches and their offensive counterparts and rivals; the best defensive player in football Darrelle Revis and the young, whimsical, and erratic quarterback Mark Sanchez; and the brotherhood of American characters who come together to form a team. Here finally is the definitive work on the elusive game, a story that is part Paper Lion and part Moneyball, part Deliverance and part The Office"-- Provided by publisher
