About the Author

Irv Cross is a former NFL player and sports broadcaster. After a career with the Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams, Cross joined CBS Sports and later the Emmy Award–winning NFL Today. A storied life, he has been the chairman of the Minnesota Twins Community Fund, the Smithsonian Institute’s National Portrait Gallery National Sports Initiative, the Director of Athletics at Macalester College, and the Executive Director and Chief Advancement Officer for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota. In 2009, he was the recipient of the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award given by the Pro Football Hall of Fame for “long-time exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football.”

&lt;div&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Clifton Brown&lt;/strong&gt; is a longtime sportswriter and veteran NFL reporter. Currently a sports writer at the &lt;i&gt;Indianapolis Star&lt;/i&gt;, he has written for the &lt;i&gt;New York Times&lt;/i&gt;, &lt;i&gt;Detroit Free Press&lt;/i&gt;, &lt;Boca Raton News&lt;/i&gt;, and the &lt;i&gt;Sporting News&lt;/i&gt;.&lt;/div&gt;

Gil Brandt was the vice president of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys from 1960 to 1988. Under his watch, the Cowboys became “America’s Team,” and helped set up the foundation which led the team to victories in Super Bowls VI and XII. A scouting pioneer, he helped developed many of the techniques which are still used by NFL teams today. Brandt contributes to as a senior analyst, and appears on numerous radio and television programs across the country. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
