Summary
"Ken "The Snake" Stabler was a force to be reckoned with, both on and off the field. A 1974 NFL MVP, a four-time Pro-bowler, and a Super Bowl champion, he lived his life unapologetically, and in many ways, was the first NFL player who was unrepentant about having sex, drinking beer-a lot of beer-and living life as he wanted-not as the NFL wanted. But he was more than a partier; he was a marksman, the league's first cocky, swashbuckling pass thrower, an undeniable physical presence, and the man who led the Raiders to their 1976 Super Bowl championship. When Stabler passed away in July 2015, John Madden said this of him: "If I had one drive to win a game to this day, and I had a quarterback to pick, I would pick Kenny. He was a perfect quarterback and a perfect Raider. When you think about the Raiders you think about Ken Stabler." Stabler's legacy really is larger-than-life, and never before has there been an exclusive account of him. The highly successful Badasses by Peter Richmond only brushes the surface of Stabler's persona-a man who, despite his penchant for partying and debauchery, was committed to winning and being the best player he could be. Snake will tell the complete story of Ken Stabler's legacy as well as the culture that so pivotally shaped it"--
Summary
A biography of an NFL bad-boy quarterback describes how Ken "The Snake" Stabler partied as hard as he played and led the Oakland Raiders to their first Super Bowl championship in 1977
