Nice find, Subby. Dr. Z made a lot of fans sound a lot smarter than they deserved to just by reading and regurgitating his articles.

I've heard that people are fascinated by Pete Carroll's new age coaching style.

Hooking the entire team up to a Stanozolol IV-drip is considered "new age coaching?"

His Thinking Man's Guide to Football should be mandatory reading for everyone who's grown up with Sportscenter.  It's really eye-opening and still relevant.

Like a lot of kids I played some Pop Warner football as a kid. I was good enough at it that a couple local private high schools came knocking and there was the fleeting hope that it might be something that pays for college. When I told my dad I was interested in pursuing it he made me read Dr. Z's book as well as Dave Meggyesy's "Out Of Their League". His rationale was I should know how the game is played and what it can do to someone. I think  both books should be required reading for anyone who loves football.

I do greatly miss his writing.  I credit him with turning me into a into a huge football fan and his analysis/wit was unmatched.

That's farking sad to hear that he suffered three strokes; took away a true genius.

Agreed.  Peter King is good, but I miss Dr. Z's insights.  I love it when he pops up during older NFL Films installments.

I would like to see the reaction to the management at SI if you told them something on the main page of their website was considered a "find" by a football fan.

It's fascinating to watch a ballgame with someone who didn't grow up with Dr. Z. It's like you're watching different sports.

Peter King just has no consistency in his statements and opinions. The Rams do something, its bad. Their Holiness Pope Brady the 1st and Belicheck the Almighty do it, its the best decision ever.

Agreed on both. The only (lame-ass) criticism some might have of Zs book is that it's highly anecdotal. Know what? That is exactly what Sportscenter is---a 30 minute series of anecdotes.

Suck it, anecdote haters.

Btw, great read, subby.

Much as I enjoy reading Peter KIng, he's not really fit to tie Z's shoes. If I wanted to learn something I'd read a Zimmerman column. If I want to be entertained I'll read Monday Morning Quarterback. Ah well.

Fixed that for you.  I agree with you that King is not fit to tie Z's shoes.  I'm pro choice on the gun ownership issue, so after a few of us warned him, I stopped reading.  I'm hardheaded like that.  I won't put anyone here on ignore, but I chose to not read that hump's column.
