Brad Schultz' retelling of this epic afternoon goes into more depth than any other depiction of what occurred before, during, and after that day. Schultz turns over quite a few stones in his search for what really happened on December 23, 1972...a day the likes of which the world of pro football had never seen before. How exactly did "The Immaculate Reception" occur in the game between the Oakland Raiders and the Pittsburgh Steelers? What happened to the players on the field that day? What happened to the fans, including the man who had to fight to keep the actual football that Franco Harris toted across the goal line on that historic day?
A few hours later, more drama ensued, as the Dallas Cowboys took on the San Francisco 49ers. An incredible fourth quarter comeback, directed by a quarterback who became a legend, added another chapter to a dynastic team, and signaled a deathnell for their West Coast foes, who would never reach the postseason again for the remainder of the decade. Just as with the contest in Pittsburgh, Schultz also explores in depth the lives of those players who took part in Candlestick Park.
Some of the stories that surrounded both of those games are both fortunate and unfortunate, jubilant and forlorn, and questionable and hard to believe by pro football fans, even to this very day.
For fans of NFL history, this book will give you pause to remember these two games, and will probably give you several new outlooks and insights into those important playoff matchups. This book is a winner!
