In the golden years of professional football, one team and one coach reigned supreme: the 1960s Green Bay Packers, and the fiery Vince Lombardi. Run to Daylight! is Lombardias own diary of a week at the helm of that magnificent club. Together with legendary sports-journalist, W.C. Heinz, Lombardi takes us from the first review of game films on Monday right through the final gun on Sunday afternoon. We see the planning, the plotting, the practice and the pain as forty-plus men come together to form that precision unit that makes for winning football. Lombardi gives us his views on life, the game, coaching, success, family, and the famed aLombardi Sweep.a Now, in this anniversary edition, with a special foreword by David Maraniss, we are once again reminded of the passion and power behind America's greatest game. Written in W.C. Heinzas inimitable style, Run to Daylight! is part diary, part philosophy text, part coaches manual. Here, is professional football at its best.Isna#39;t that what football is all about? ... If you dona#39;t believe that, give up on what you a#39;re doing and play the horses. ... more, but you fit your game to the talents and personality of your team as well as to your own and Ia#39;ve got a quarterback whose big card is his consistency. ... In the coachesa#39; room Phil Bengston is charting on white cardboard, using a plastic template and a French curve, one of Detroita#39;s plays.
