Summary
"How is the West Coast offense like quantum mechanics? How does the shape of the football invoke chaos theory? What lessons did Vince Lombardi glean from the brain of Sir Isaac Newton and the beautiful mind of John Nash? Should the NFL ban helmets? Why, in defiance of mathematics, does a coach almost never go for it on fourth down? The answers to these and dozens of other physics questions determine the outcome of every football game played in America, and--perhaps--the future of the nation's most popular sport"--
Summary
An analysis of the link between physics and football includes coverage of such subjects as the shape of the ball and the design of helmets while revealing how many of the greatest minds in football exhibit an instinctual grasp of science, sharing additional insight into how an understanding of physics can help reduce injury risks
