Lombardi and Landry

Posted Aug 25, 2011

Did you know Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry started their professional coaching careers with the Giants? Here's the story of those years (1954-59) under Jim Lee Howell where the seeds of the fabled Green Bay Sweep and the 4-3 defense were planted.

My spot on Steve Adubato's One-on-One is due to air Jan. 30 on your local PBS channel. We're talking "Lombardi and Landry" of course, and Steve was truly into it. Made for a pretty good interview, so don't miss it.

The book remains available for Kindle, Nook, and any of those other reading devices. You can also download it seconds to your PC or Mac. So if you're not into carrying 300-page books around in your pocket or briefcase, feel free to add this one to your electronic bookshelf. It only takes a few seconds.

It's on the shelves now at Barnes and Noble, BJ Wholesalers, and Sam's Clubs, and you can also get it on Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/Lombardi-Landry-Footballs-Greatest-Launched/dp/1616084413/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314279649&sr=8-1, Barnesandnoble.com (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/lombardi-and-landry-ernie-palladino/1102270981?ean=9781616084417&itm=1&usri=lombardi+and+landry, and Indiebound.org (http://www.indiebound.org/book/9781616084417).

Keep in mind, this is the first book of its kind to delve into the two coaching greats' assistantship with the Giants under Jim Lee Howell in the mid-to-late 1950s. It's a fascinating story that tells as much about their personalities and how they handled their relationship as it does about their strategies.
