Excerpts from Marty Schottenheimer's book

This is one of the best football books you'll read. It's truly fascinating.

Quote:
1. Dick Haley (Todd's dad) was a big HS football star at a school not far from Marty's. Haley drove a red convertible and Marty used to see it all the time and get extremely jealous. Marty's first purchase when the Bills drafted him was a red convertible Buick Riviera.

2. Almost everyone in the NFL was rooting for Brian Schottenheimer's Jets to beat AJ Smith's Chargers in the 2009 playoffs, because people hated AJ Smith for firing Marty after going 14-2. Marty had to watch the game from a hotel bar.

3. Marty wanted to be a dentist but failed organic chemistry.

4. Marty was good friends with Joe Namath, to the extent that they went on fishing trips together. Namath once juked Marty in the open field during a Jets-Bills game, and afterwards gave him crap about it.

5. Marty failed in real-estate endeavors and that was why he got into coaching. He got stiffed on a bunch of checks in the WFL, then submitted a scouting report on WFL players to Giants head coach Bill Arnsparger, and eventually got a job with the Giants coaching linebackers because of it.

6. Marty was Cleveland's defensive coordinator when the HC was fired. They offered Marty the interm HC job. He refused and asked for a two-year contract as the full-fledged HC because he knew players didn't respect interim head coaches. Smart move.

7. Art Modell, in all his wisdom, tried to force Marty to make changes to his coaching staff, and that was why he left Cleveland.

8. "One play a time" was coined because Namath juked Marty. After that play, Marty couldn't focus and gave up a TD because of it. After that he resolved to focus only on one play at a time.

9. Carl and Marty had their first interview together getting lost driving around Kansas City. They almost ran out of gas.

10. Lamar Hunt was the selling point for Marty to come to KC. He would do random things like bring a piece of Key Lime Pie to his hotel room late at night during league meetings.

11. A Marty saying you probably haven't heard: "Men, just hang in there like an old sack of balls."
More to come.

I am definitely down for a copy of this book...I hadn't even heard of it, but now I will definitely head right out to buy it.

I think Marty was definitely a super-class man. He had flaws just like any human being does, but he was a first rate coach and motivator.

Not just Elway,he threw a td pass first that was called back because the receiver had stepped out of bounds,then there was a penalty for as i recall illegal formation and then he finally ran in it.

I was personally at that game sitting with 200 other KC fans and after Elway ran that go ahead td in the Bronco fans were ruthless but we all know who got the last laugh.

He's a great coach and he's awfully nice in person. I met him one at Seau's restaurant (he was leaving as I was arriving). I was probably 18. He stopped and had a nice little conversation with me.

Great guy. Wish we never got rid of him.
Id have to go Bobby Ross over Marty, for Charger fans anyway.

Marty had his warts of course when it came to being conservative on the coaching front but he was by far my most favorite Chiefs coach. I wasn't alive for Stram. Championships or not, Marty made Kansas City Chiefs football something special. Just the environment was second to none.

It was a very quick read. I got the kindle version for my iPad for $7.68 Probably about what it's worth. I couldn't believe this thing went through a publisher at least 20 typographical errors in it.

That being said, even the hardcore Chiefs fan will learn some stuff on Marty and the Chiefs but not a lot. The author fast forwards through several segments in time with a paragraph or two when that's when you wish he would have spent a whole chapter.

Is there a chapter dedicated to evaluating skank waitresses and where are the best ones? Shoneys? Waffle House?

...
you DO realize that the editing process and/or publishing process for eBooks is completely different than it is for print books, yes? they catch a LOT fewer errors. you can't blame that on the print publisher, that's shoddy transcription on the company that did the eBook (I know this as I've rarely come across an eBook that didn't have a lot of typos and/or other errors)

Oh man, here's a cool story.

Everyone knows about Marty's midnight rule. You move on to the next game by midnight following the last one.

Well, his wife invented it.

Brian was sitting in the car whining about HS game that he had lost and Pat got tired of it and told him he was going to shut up about it by midnight, or else.

Then she told Marty and he was like "Hey, this is cool, I'll use this with my professional football team called the Chiefs."

So holy shit man.

I am about to post some more but here is a good one:

Marty went to see Derrick Thomas at the hospital several times when he was trying to recover. He would go with him to therapy every time. On the drive home he would break down crying every time.

Watching Marty at DT's HOF induction was moving. He clearly loved the kid.
