Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Essential Smart Football is an examination of football's most important strategies and ideas, through the lens of the game's best coaches, players, and schemes. Brilliantly written and eschewing unnecessary jargon and technicality, it makes a major contribution to our understanding of football to help all of us -- coaches, players, and fans -- appreciate the game we love all the more.

The Essential Smart Football features analysis of football's top strategists and their schemes, including:

- Urban Meyer's spread offense
- Tom Brady's no-huddle attack
- Bill Belichick's hybrid defense
- Mike Leach's pass-happy "Air Raid" offense
- The most popular scheme for running the ball in the NFL
- Nick Saban's school of defense

The book also includes explorations of modern approaches to the West Coast Offense, evolutions in defensive fronts and coverages, the changing role of the running game in spread and pro-style offenses, and much more.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not as good as expected 2 novembre 2012
Par Andrew Chandler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have followed Chris Brown's Smart Football website for years, and bought this book (actually 2 of them) knowing that many of the chapters in the book would be very similar to posts I had already read on his blog. What I was expecting was more of a reference book, something that I could flip through for refreshers on basic terminology and offensive and defensive schemes. Chris Brown has mentioned before that there aren't very many good general football strategy books out there, and I was hoping that his book would fill the void.

It turns out that the book is mostly copies of blog posts already on his site. In many cases the only difference between the book chapters and the blog posts are the removal of diagrams and videos explaining certain concepts. The original blog posts were very informative, and I assumed that in buying the book I would get additional material- more diagrams/examples, better organization so that it could be used as a reference, etc. But that's not what this book is.

Despite being disappointed, I didn't mind buying the book because of the enjoyment I have gotten out of his website. However, the information in the book is the same as the website, and, it turns out, the website is a better medium for understanding the concepts. I hope one day Chris does write a reference book on modern football strategy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Always on the Cutting Edge of the Game 20 mai 2012
Par Coach R - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Over the last 5 years, Chris Brown's site Smartfootball.com has influenced the way I see (and coach) the game of football more than any other source...and I consult a lot of sources! I read 20+ books a year on football coaching, strategy, and management. Brown stays on top of the game, breaking down the newest strategies and noting why they emerged and where they evolved from. This book contains the best articles from his website all in one book. The best leaders and teachers are great simplifiers and Chris Brown makes the complex seem simple. I'm a high school head football coach and love studying the game. I have a lot of the cornerstone books like Bill Walsh's Finding the Winning Edge, Woody Hayes's Hotline to Victory, "Tiger" Ellison's Run & Shoot, Homer Smith's manuals, and Lou Holtz's The Grass is Greener. I recommend Chris Brown's book and site in the same sentence with those essential texts. All of them will change the way you see the game. The material on Urban Meyer and the Spread Offense traces the roots of the offense and the power of the "true" option as opposed to the "read" option. The chapter on the Patriots's use of "Joker" players like Gronkowski and Hernandez to create uncertainty in the defense with versatile players is essential reading -- it ties into Woody Hayes's idea of building your offense to beat the top 3 teams on your schedule (in this case the Jets, for Belichick). If you run the Spread and haven't read Brown's ideas on "Constraint" plays, you are missing out. The chapter on the No Huddle Offense and how it gives Tom Brady (of all QBs) simpler defensive structures to attack is also outstanding. The bottom line is that this is a fantastic football book from one of the best writers on football today. Buy this book and visit Brown's site and you'll be a better coach. He's as good as it gets.

This is an amazing book for football fans seeking to expand their technical knowledge of the game. It helped me know more about what's going on in the field before a play happens and why certain players line up in a particular way for a snap. It is more technical than I thought. The author writes a lot about some of the offensive and defensive formations used in the past and how current coaches have modified them. This is a good thing though because it's the kind of book you can read more than once and still learn something new. I learned way more by looking up the terms and people he wrote about. Highly recommend.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Even For a Huge Football Fan, It's Hard to Understand 31 janvier 2014
Par Mike Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have been a huge spectator football fan for years and thought I knew a lot about the game. It takes a book like this to show how little I really know. Unfortunately, the author seems to assume the reader is a coach, former player or professional sports announcer. He uses terms and talks about formations with X's and O's that were way beyond my understanding. I was hoping this book would help me understand the terms and formations better, not assume I already knew them and could therefore appreciate how the football geniuses took those to the next level.

I'm sure the book has much to offer for the right reader. Indeed, the parts I could understand were quite interesting. But in my opinion, this is not a book that can be enjoyed by the average spectator fan. It seems geared toward those who have been or are currently involved in playing or coaching the game and know it from the inside. That is not a criticism but rather an observation. Just be aware of that before you purchase the book.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Learn the Process of Solving Problems In Football 10 décembre 2015
Par Mike Minter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Great read for all football coaches who want to learn the why in football. This book shows you how great minds in football has taken something and out of necessity create the next big movement in football. Everything is a reaction to problems you face as a coach and a team. It gives you the process of thinking and how you use that process to build your answers to the problems. This is a simple read and entertaining at the same time! I loved reading how everything we see today in football is built off the history of the game so if you just want to learn the history of the game or learn how the great minds solved problems this book is for you. Enjoy as you come up with the next big thing!
