Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Headstrong Jessica Burns inherits the sorry, ever-losing New York Jets and vows (against the advice of her father, a winning high school coach in Colorado) to bring more fun and less violence to the NFL. She does this despite the opposition of the other owners, and the disbelief of most of the media, by finding a coaching genius in a wheel chair in the Arizona desert, falling in love with him, and hiring him to bring his revolutionary new razzle dazzle offense to New York. Win Markey was an offensive coordinator at the St. Louis Rams until his Porsche crashed on a snowy highway and left him a paraplegic. Now, given new life and a new love in Manhattan, he coaches with heart and a wit that surprises the football world and takes the Jets--and Jessica Burns--through a wondrous, record-breaking season all the way to the Super Bowl.
