Football Commentary

I'm enjoying the American football season this year. I think I’d enjoy it more if I understood the modern game better. (It’s been a long time since I was the world’s most inept JV TE, our school coaching was incredibly bad, and this isn’t the same game anyway).

What I’d really like is the Roger Angell of football.

But what I’d settle for – and surely this must exist – is a good book or video in which you watch a game closely with someone who really does understand the game and who explains what he sees. A detailed commentary, in other words, explaining what they wanted to do.
