Fun Read

I wasn't alive to see Tatum in his prime but I've heard quite a bit through my Raiders fan family members. This book is a light, fun read. I hightly recommend it if you have any interest in football during the 70's. I loved how Tatum rips on Franco!

THIS BOOK IS A HIT

I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK BY JACK TATUM, FORMER OAKLAND RAIDER. THE BOOK IS BOTH INTERESTING AND ENTERTAINING. IT IS ALMOST 100% ABOUT FOOTBALL. A SMALL BUT DETAILED ACCOUNT OF HIS CHILDHOOD IS DISCUSSED EARLY ON BUT THE REST IS HIS CAREER IN HIGH SCHOOL, OHIO STATE AND OAKLAND. HIS OPINIONS AND INSIGHTS CONCERNING THE BEST AT DIFFERNT POSITIONS, AND COACHES IS A MAJOR HIGHLIGHT. I ALSO FOUND HOW HE FELT AFTER THE INCIDENT WITH DARRYL STINGLEY TO BE ANOTHER HIGHLIGHT TO THIS VERY GOOD READ. I RECOMMEND THIS FOR ALL FOOTBALL FANS. A HIT BOOK BY THE RAIDER HIT MAN.

This guy makes Deion Sanders look like a chump!

This is truly a player for all ages, and why football "back then" is soooo much better than football today. He did it all. Play the run, play the pass, hit . .you name it. Jack Tatum let his actions on the field speak for itself. And he didnt get caught up in "marketing himself" on the field after a good play either (ala "Deion"). Knowing how brutal the old Raiders clubs were in the 60's & 70's, and to a man, having all of them agree that Jack Tatum was the toughest of all of them (Ken Stabler in "Snake" and John Madden's books for just a couple of examples), this tells you just how good of a football player this guy was. The fact that he loved and respected Woody Hayes at Ohio State for just being always "honest and upfront with him," when all other college recruiters were trying to buy him out of high school, showed me just what kind of character this guy was made of. A good read.
