Here's something to satisfy the hardest-core football fan—the kind who even watches the Pro Bowl. Compiled by five men, among them a New York cabdriver, the book combines new statistical concepts ("Opportunism is not merely an overlooked aspect of pro football, but possibly the single most important factor") and ratings, including "best" owners ("Redskin owner Jack Kent Cooke would have made an ideal governor-general of the Punjab during the reign of Queen Victoria, but as a chief operating officer of a sports franchise he is a meddling liability"). (Fawcett Columbine, $5.95)
