Alyne Payton, Mother of Chicago Bears Running Back, Walter Payton - "Every woman with a husband who likes football or a son who plays football should read this book."
Bonita Favre, Mother of NFL Quarterback, Brett Favre - "I just wish I had thought of this myself many years ago when I was teaching P.E. ... I did have to laugh as TALK FOOTBALL brought back memories of when I was teaching in a different high school than my husband. If I walked in the teacher's lounge and the coach was looking over his playbook, he would hurriedly close it because he was afraid I would go home and tell Irvin about his X's and O's. I do think it is a great asset to anyone trying to learn the game and I wish you well!"
