Default Football Strategy Books?

I think I know a lot about the history of football, but I really want to study more about the actual game itself. Does anyone know of/can reccommend any good books to read?

On Amazon I found books by the AFCA about Offense and Defense strategy. I'd like to learn about offense and defense i am unfamiliar with, learn the nuances and details of some I already kinda know. Not to mention i'd like to learn about minutia of strategy, team building, etc.

I'd love a good book to help me bone up on R Rods spread as well

Any ideas?

There are books at public libraries that explain the basics which is good for a start. There are rules and parts of the game i had never heard of until i read some.

Yeah... guess I could check there... It would be nice to 'dot the I's and cross the T's" when it comes to the stuff I have a handle on and that could be a good way. I love the little details about stuff though... I'd love to learn more about the Spread, and defensively stuff like Cover 2 and BYU's 3-5-3 defense.

There are a ton of books in the library as 19ward86 stated. Since you mentioned it though, I hope Dick Lebeau writes a book on defense. I would love to get into his head, learn to see what he sees, etc.

OMG yes! Or Sandusky. I still remember my father telling me that when he retired you'd see who that team really belonged to!

LOL. Just had a thought:

Imagine the quotes you might find in "Football for Dummies" -

"When the player crosses the goal line with the football, that's a touchdown."

- John Madden.
