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.
Great for football fans
This is a good book. I think this book should be a must read for media members (sport talk show host). This book help me understand more about the X's and O's as well as understand why certain players are taken in the draft.

A must read for every foot ball fan! Pat not only makes you understand a little more about the overall play of the game, he helps you look at the game from more of a coaches standpoint. As a fan you see what the networks show you. After reading, you will see more than you ever knew you could.
This book really helped me understand the game of football better!
It's a nice book that will help you understand a little more about the game within the game. And gives you an inside view and makes you more aware of why things happen in the game other than what you might see because you've been watching the ball and not the other battles on the field.

More, more, more
A great read for football fans. It's not an introductory book, so you should now a thing or two about football already.
But great at explaining competing concepts like physical traits for the 3-4 vs the 4-3 or man coverage vs zone.
