Chuck Noll : his life's work by Michael MacCambridge( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chuck Noll won four Super Bowls and presided over one of the greatest football dynasties in history, the Pittsburgh Steelers of the '70s. Later inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, his achievements as a competitor and a coach are the stuff of legend. But Noll always remained an intensely private and introspective man, never revealing much of himself as a person or as a coach, not even to the players and fans who revered him. Chuck Noll did not need a dramatic public profile to be the catalyst for one of the greatest transformations in sports history. In the nearly four decades before he was hired, the Pittsburgh Steelers were the least successful team in professional football, never winning so much as a division title. After Noll's arrival, his quiet but steely leadership quickly remolded the team into the most accomplished in the history of professional football. And what he built endured well beyond his time with the Steelers -- who have remained one of America's great NFL teams, accumulating a total of six Super Bowls, eight AFC championships, and dozens of division titles and playoff berths. In this penetrating biography, based on deep research and hundreds of interviews, Michael MacCambridge takes the measure of the man, painting an intimate portrait of one of the most important figures in American football history. He traces Noll's journey from a Depression-era childhood in Cleveland, where he first played the game in a fully integrated neighborhood league led by an African-American coach and then seriously pursued the sport through high school and college. Eventually, Noll played both defensive and offensive positions professionally for the Browns, before discovering that his true calling was coaching. MacCambridge reveals that Noll secretly struggled with and overcame epilepsy to build the career that earned him his place as "the Emperor" of Pittsburgh during the Steelers' dynastic run in the 1970s, while in his final years, he battled Alzheimer's in the shelter of his caring and protective family. Noll's impact went well beyond one football team. When he arrived, the city of steel was facing a deep crisis, as the dramatic decline of Pittsburgh's lifeblood industry traumatized an entire generation. "Losing," Noll said on his first day on the job, "has nothing to do with geography." Through his calm, confident leadership of the Steelers and the success they achieved, the people of Pittsburgh came to believe that winning was possible, and their recovery of confidence owed a lot to the Steeler's new coach. The famous urban renaissance that followed can only be understood by grasping what Noll and his team meant to the people of the city. The man Pittsburghers could never fully know helped them see themselves better. Chuck Noll: His Life's Work tells the story of a private man in a very public job. It explores the family ties that built his character, the challenges that defined his course, and the love story that shaped his life. By understanding the man himself, we can at last clearly see Noll's profound influence on the city, players, coaches, and game he loved. They are all, in a real sense, heirs to the football team Chuck Noll built

The Q factor : the elusive search for the next great NFL quarterback by Brian Billick( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are elite athletes in every sport -- people who possess tangible and intangible qualities that allow them to overcome daunting odds, spot opportunity in the midst of adversity, and turn defeat into victory. No position embodies this dynamic more than football quarterbacks, and nothing is a greater test of performance than the NFL. The tangibles -- metrics, stats, ratings, bowl games, championships -- are critical to evaluation. But they're not enough. Every year, highly rated college quarterbacks are analyzed, critiqued, hyped up and/or doubted, and those who manage to survive the scrutiny are drafted early. Some of those early picks make it to the top, some end up journeymen, and some just wash out. Why? What separates the elites from the pack? In THE Q FACTOR, former NFL coach Brian Billick takes the highly promising 2018 NFL quarterback Draft class -- the most touted class since 2004 (Manning, Roethlisberger, Rivers) and 1983 (Elway, Kelly, Marino) -- and measures the top five quarterback picks to gauge how, why, and if they succeed. They are all first rounders, all with sterling college credentials, all talented athletes, all taken by teams betting their futures. One or maybe two could go on to greatness. But which ones, and why? Could the prediction process be better? Are the "experts" looking at the wrong factors? How do we find the best of the best?" --

'69 Chiefs : a team, a season, and the birth of modern Kansas City by Michael MacCambridge( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was a summer of convulsive cultural currents, of a country awash in contradictions and conflict, of the massive collective effort of the moon landing and the massive social expression of Woodstock. Against that backdrop, on a sweltering July day on the campus of William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, the 1969 season of the Kansas City Chiefs began in earnest. For the Chiefs and their driven, prideful, innovative coach Hank Stram, it was a last chance to excel in the only universe they'd ever known. The '69 season would mark the last year that the American Football League and the National Football League would operate as separate entities, and the final installment of the original AFL vs. NFL Super Bowl format. The six-month season would prove to be an epic journey for the Chiefs, their fans, and the city itself. Through the writing of author Michael MacCambridge, and the crisp, vivid photography of Rod Hanna, '69 Chiefs: a team, a season, and the birth of modern Kansas City provides an intimate portrait of one of the most important (and overlooked) teams in pro football history, and one of the great champions of the Super Bowl era. With dozens of new interviews, MacCambridge traces the narrative arc of the Chiefs' unforgettable season, with vivid support from the pictures of Hanna, many which have never seen before. The account follows the Chiefs from the devastating ending to the 1968 season, through Stram's intense offseason efforts to prepare his team for the 1969 campaign, and the early-season injury to the team leader, quarterback Len Dawson, which threatened the Chiefs' championship aspirations. The story concludes with the Chiefs' memorable playoff games in New York and Oakland, the dramatic buildup in New Orleans to Super Bowl IV, and the Super Bowl itself, which forever changed the perception of the Chiefs, the AFL, and Kansas City. The book's eloquent epilogue finds four of the great players on that team gathered together again, nearly fifty years later, reflecting on their signal achievement. A riveting piece of sports and cultural history, '69 Chiefs is required reading for young and old Chiefs fans alike, an evocative photographic record of a great team, and a unique time capsule of an important chapter in the history of Kansas City"--Jacket

America's Game : The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured a Nation by Michael MacCambridge( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's difficult to imagine today-when the Super Bowl has virtually become a national holiday and the National Football League is the country's dominant sports entity-but pro football was once a ramshackle afterthought on the margins of the American sports landscape. In the span of a single generation in postwar America, the game charted an extraordinary rise in popularity, becoming a smartly managed, keenly marketed sports entertainment colossus whose action is ideally suited to television and whose sensibilities perfectly fit the modern age. America's Game traces pro football's grand transformation, from the World War II years, when the NFL was fighting for its very existence, to the turbulent 1980s and 1990s, when labor disputes and off-field scandals shook the game to its core, and up to the sport's present-day preeminence. A thoroughly entertaining account of the entire universe of professional football, from locker room to boardroom, from playing field to press box, this is an essential book for any fan of America's favorite sport

From Ryan to 2042 Phase I of the Longitudinal Study Comparing Teacher Preparation Program Models through Teacher Candidate Perceptions Regarding the Instruction of Students, Including Typically Performing Students, Students with Special Needs, and English Learners by Beth Anderson Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to determine the most effective way to prepare teacher candidates to work with English learners and students with disabilities by surveying teacher candidate perceptions regarding their preparation. A forty-item instrument was developed probing teacher candidates? perceptions of their level of preparation for working with special populations in the general education classroom. Teacher candidates were surveyed at the end of three phases of teacher preparation (foundations, methods coursework and an introduction to student teaching, fulltime student teaching and advanced methodology) using the Flashlight tool developed by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Washington State University (http://www.ctlt.wsu.edu/). Results of the first phase of this study indicate that teacher candidates feel sufficient in their knowledge regarding the instruction of typically performing students throughout their preparation program. However, while teacher candidates feel their knowledge is sufficient regarding the instruction of special populations after foundational coursework, they feel less so after methods coursework and an introduction to student teaching. After a fulltime semester of student teaching and advanced methodology, teacher candidates perceive their knowledge is more sufficient than during their introductory semester, but not as high as they did after foundational coursework. Teacher candidates perceive the least sufficient knowledge for instructing students with special needs in all phases of their preparation program. Once teacher candidates engage in practice, they continue to perceive that their knowledge is sufficient in instructing typically performing students; however, they feel much less sufficient in instructing English Learners and students with special needs. Teacher preparation programs must continue to infuse more knowledge and skills for instructing students with special needs and English learners throughout program and eldwork. Further analysis as to the finding that teacher candidates perceived diminishing levels of sufficiency rather than increasing levels as they progressed through their program should be conducted.
