From the Publisher:

"Fans who used to view TV’s Monday Night Football while tuned into Stram’s expert radio commentary will be delighted by his equally authoritative autobiography. ... Entertaining reading for fans as well as players and coaches." —Library Journal

From the Inside Flap:

Hank Stram was a winner, plain and simple. He was the first head coach of the AFL’s Dallas Texans, and he produced a winner almost immediately. Stram and the Texans claimed the 1962 AFL championship, and the next year the fledgling franchise moved to Kansas City and became the Chiefs. Stram led the Chiefs to two Super Bowls in four seasons, falling to Vince Lombardi’s Packers in Super Bowl I and soundly defeating Bud Grant and the heavily favored Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV. Among Stram’s many coaching innovations were the moving pocket and the stack defense, which was particularly effective in shutting down the Vikings in Super Bowl IV. The Chiefs’ victory was the second straight Super Bowl win by the rising AFL, and the next year brought the merger between the NFL and AFL. Stram’s NFL Chiefs won the 1971 AFC Western Division, and he also coached in two Pro Bowls, winning them both. All told, the Hall of Famer won 136 games over a 17-year career that ended with the New Orleans Saints in 1976. Stram then moved into the broadcast booth for an equally successful second career, earning accolades for his straight-talking style and witty commentary. He wrote his autobiography in the same straightforward manner and pulled no punches as he described life on the sideline, in the locker room, and behind the microphone. Beginning with his years coaching at the University of Miami, Notre Dame, and SMU and culminating with his years in the AFL and then the NFL, Stram delivers a compelling play-by-play of life in professional football. They’re Playing My Game explores all of Stram’s game-changing innovations, gives an insightful look into his relationship with Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson, shares anecdotes about legendary Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt, and recalls some of pro football’s greatest players and most memorable moments.
