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 actually met Marty and Carl by accident in 1987. I was on lunch break from a construction site on 40 Hwy in Independence and stopped at the "Steak and Shake" to grab a sandwich. I happened to be wearing a Chiefs sweatshirt. The server tells me: "There's your new coach". I looked behind me at the next table and there they were. Marty waved and motioned me over. In total, I think he had only been in town for a week or so.

We shot the crap for about 10 minutes. Pleasant man. Carl didn't have a lot to say but was all right. Seemed like a down to earth, decent man. I was a fan of Marty from that day on.

Marty was Browns coach then. You must mean 1989.

I met Marty once at Derrick Thomas' birthday party (I lived in Chicago at the time and, coincidentally, DT and Neil Smith's publicist lived up the street so she got me in) before the Denver playoff in 97. He was very generous with his time, pulling me aside to get away from the music that was blaring to walk into the common area of the old Arrowhead Club at the stadium where the party was held. Spent probably 10 minutes talking - about all kinds of things including the 95 playoff loss. Seemed to be a great guy.

That would certainly be a good guess.

It seems, though, like a lot of times there was some win that was meaningful even though the fans didn't know it. Some game where they had to change the whole game plan on the last day or everyone was sick with the flu or something like that. Or where somebody mouthed off on the other team and got put in their place.

Was that the game where Elway scored the go-ahead TD like 3 times but it kept being called back?

I would imagine that it would be a win against the Raiders.

I think Marty being our favorite head coach (at least for the somewhat younger crowd) is the one thing Chiefs and Chargers fans have in common.

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.
