Audible Editor Reviews

Tim Green gives us a realistic peek underneath the glitter and glory that we see each Sunday watching televised NFL games. Understand an environment where even the best players have to deal with such insecurities as knowing they are only as good as their last game, and there is always someone younger, bigger, and faster just waiting to take their place. Imagine the game so bruising and physically abusing that getting up on Monday morning your body feels as if it had been involved in a car crash which completed totaled the vehicle, only imagine doing it 20 weeks in a row. It's no wonder that some players secretly don't mind when their team misses the playoffs and their own healing can begin a little earlier. (Tony, Senior Director of Finance)
