I tried to think of something to open up the football season the way I did with baseball but I came up empty.
Here's a list of football books, I did back in 2008. I can't believe I picked the Chargers to go to the Superbowl. They're awful in the playoffs.
I wanted to highlight a few titles, that I loved. Please don't sleep on any of them, they're all very good and go beyond the field.
