    A book by Herb Adderley, Dave Robinson, and co-written with Royce Boyles. Must reading for all those interested in the Lombardi era. Lots of personal things I had never read about Adderly and Robinson, as well as insights into the immediate post-Lombardi regime of Phil Bengtson-- a person whom I had never read anything damning about other than his lack of coaching abilities; but was clearly the wrong choice to follow Lombardi for many reasons. And for those few Cowboys fans: the real story of Landry and the unhappy time Adderly had with the 'boys. Without Adderly and Gregg he probably would never have won a Championship, which really bothered Landry. Well written, informative book.

    The subject line was misleading. (Yeah, here it comes: ) ... I thought maybe Vince had one leg shorter than the other...

    I'm going to get that book ... thanks for the heads up.
