I bought Finding the Winning Edge at a used book store in Virginia in 2002 while falling in love with Reid and McNabb in Philly. Absorbed it cover to cover - everything from how to run a football team from setting up the front office, coaching staff, evaluating QBs and other positions for the WCO, and even how to organize meetings, gamedays, and handling press conferences.

YOU ALL NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. It's Reid's system.

In 2003 I found a local men's flag football league here in Northern VA. I started a team with guys from work and I implemented the system (except the press conferences) and went out to the league message board to find more players. We held practices year round, played in spring leagues, fall leagues, and tournaments in the winter and summer. I got that team to win the local league twice and went to the Virginia State Tourney twice before losing in the Elite Eight round in a field of 64 teams the third year (2006). At that point my wife and I had child number three and she told me it was time to stop being a child.

Bottom line: Great book for the WCO obsessed - and yes - all of you are.
