More information on the book:Comprised of exclusive interviews with Jets players, coaches, and other figures , Sack Exchange takes a look at the New York Jets and the National Football league during hte 1980's. From the events that shaped the 1980s Jets, such as the legacy of Joe Namath, to their four playoff appearances during the decade, each event includes photos, insider information and more!. Other highlights include examinations of the beginning of the Jets' rivalry with the Miami Dolphins; the controversial firing of head coach Walt Michaels; the defensive line, given the nickname "The New York Sack Exchange;" and steroid use by the players and throughout the NFL.
The book is really good. It is a first hand account from the people who lived those years with the team. I will probably be speaking with Greg in the next week or so about it.
