Legendary

release date: Feb 14, 2020
Legendary
In 2019, the NFL''s San Francisco 49ers rose from a 4-12 season to the Super Bowl, as coach Kyle Shanahan devised a brilliant offense and welded an unheralded group of ultra-fast, hard-hitting, egoless players into a dominating team. No divas, no stars, no problem. The team overcame adversity including a series of tough opponents, constant doubt as to their abilities and brutal injuries in the process. Mid-season, middle linebacker Kwon Alexander tore his pectoral muscle in a game and was given powerful pain medication to handle the excruciating pain. Asked by a reporter how he felt, he replied "Legendary." Everyone laughed but his answered proved to be a prophecy of his team''s season. The team that improved from 4-12, second worst in the league in 2018, was 13-3 in 2019 and dominated opponents en route to Super Bowl LIV. It was a year that indeed proved Legendary.

Controlled Chaos

release date: Jul 28, 2015
Controlled Chaos
The author of THE TAO OF CHIP KELLY returns with deep insight into the mind of one of the NFL’s most innovative and increasingly controversial coaches. The 2014 off-season saw the excitement of Chip Kelly''s NFL debut turn ugly fast. Before his second training camp even opened, the coach abruptly cut DeSean Jackson, his popular and explosive wide receiver, who signed with division rival Washington. Reporters wondered whether Kelly was built for the NFL, whether the offensive schemes that dominated the college game could work in the pros, and whether he had the fortitude to handle the media. Kelly responded to his critics by navigating crippling injuries and a fractious locker room to lead the Eagles to a 9-3 record. Then they lost three straight games, a collapse fueled by DeSean Jackson''s revenge and, perhaps, Kelly''s own stubbornness. Still, the Philadelphia Eagles, with Chip Kelly at the helm, continue to implement a strategy that goes beyond the X’s-and-O’s and into the very fabric of the organization. Mark Saltveit, the author of THE TAO OF CHIP KELLY, illuminates the strategies and philosophies of Chip Kelly in the nitty gritty stories of one NFL season, featuring characters such as Murderleg, Johnny Manziel, and Bryan Braman, the ex-model who grew up homeless and tackled a Titans punt returner head first—without a helmet. As Kelly continues to reinvent the game of football itself with insights from the Navy Seals, rugby stars, and silly movies, CONTROLLED CHAOS is essential reading for any gridiron fan.

The Tao of Chip Kelly

release date: Dec 10, 2013
The Tao of Chip Kelly
"Having studied Kelly''s time at Oregon extensively, Saltveit has written the book on Kelly. Literally."—Dan Graziano, ESPN This insightful, eye-opening guide reveals the methods and the madness behind the new coach of the San Francisco 49''ers. During his four years as football coach at the University of Oregon, Chip Kelly led the previously unheralded Ducks to a 46-7 record. But Chip Kelly''s method goes a lot deeper than his high-risk defense and lightning-fast, no-huddle offense. What is behind Chip''s astonishing success? It''s a lot more than just plays and tactics. Now that he''s run the NFL gauntlet as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles and emerged out the other side to come back to the west coast, this book looks at the remarkable philosophy and innovative management strategies that Chip Kelly uses to build elite teams-strategies that every leader or business manager can employ to make their own brand a champion. "He just thinks so differently than anyone I''ve ever met."—John Neal, Oregon assistant coach "Saltveit lays out a clear picture of how Kelly operates."—Bob Ford, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
