Summary, Etc. "With this book, Segal focuses on the NFL, and provides a vast collection of poorly aged predictions and analysis from NFL media members and personalities about some of the most famous teams and players in the league's history"-- "Since 2015, Fred Segal has chronicled unprophetic sports predictions on the internet. [This book] is a vast collection of poorly aged NFL commentary made by media, coaches, and sports personalities. In each chapter, Segal does a deep dive into the reasonings and context in which the prediction was made -- and why it went so terribly wrong. Exploring ill-fated takes like "The Patriots will regret hiring Bill Belichick" and "The Dolphins could have had their next Dan Marino if they selected Brady Quinn," this is a wholly unique and endlessly entertaining lens through which to explore NFL history."-- Back cover.
