'He is one of the last of a vanishing breed of pigskin heroes-Chuck Bednarik, Philadelphia's 'Mr Eagle,' who played the game with the kind of raw passion that made him a football legend. Voted one of the greatest professional linemen of all time, Bednarik is the last man to play both offense and defense for an entire game in the National Football League. He was an All-American high school center, All-American center in college, All-Pro center in the big time; chosen as the best center in the first fifty years of professional football. Now, in Bednarik: Last of the Sixty-Minute Men, he remembers all the bruises and bouquets that marked his long and celebrated career. From the steel-mill town where his father toiled for 36 years, through a spectacular college career, to his incomparable achievements in professional football, he recalls it all-including his many fights, two NFL championships, his famous tackle of Frank Gifford that almost ended the Giff's career, and the special comradery of the bruising professional ball players. Bednarik played to win and his writing reflects his total commitment-it is tough, honest, and direct. Even after fourteen years of retirement, Hall-of-Famer Chuck Bednarik is one of the most colorful personalities football had produced. This book is an exciting profile of the golden age of football, a kind of football that we may never see again.' --From Inside the Dust Jacket
