Covering individual teams (Hello, 1972 Miami Dolphins!) but also the best eras in famous teams' history, such as the Patriots of the '00s and the Steelers of the late 1970s, the editors at Sports Illustrated Kids dissect the best of the gridiron to show the whys and hows of team building, brilliant strategy, player combinations, and that special magic that the greatest teams have and which owners can't buy—even if there weren't a salary cap. Player profiles, stats and records, and thrilling narratives show the march to the Super Bowl and into the history of America's favorite spectator sport. Amazing photos, insider stories, and fun facts capture the cultural phenomenon that is football in the U.S.! The SI Kids editors won't forget college ball! Picture the 2001 Miami Hurricanes cruising to the national title with a perfect season that was fun and full of swagger, displaying an absurd level of talent with six first-team All-Americans leading the way.
