No pain, no gain. This title can describe memorable moments since the birth of pro football in America. In 1958, Neil Leifer took the picture that remains famous. The day he got the shot – Alan Ameche’s game-winning ‘Sudden Death’ touchdown – was Leifer’s 16th birthday. This game signaled football’s emergence as America’s national pastime; formerly half-empty stadiums welcomed sold-out crowds seemingly overnight, while football surpassed pro baseball and college football in national television ratings. Starting then, on any given Sunday Leifer was most likely shooting a football game somewhere in America. This collection represents the best of this photographer, culled from over 10,000 rolls of film on the sport. It’s impossible to conceive of Peyton Manning hovering over an impromptu wood fire on the sidelines during a blizzard, but Leifer captured Tittle’s Giants doing exactly that during the coldest game in his memory. From Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers dynasty to the Miami Dolphins’ perfect season in 1972 to the Minnesota Vikings’ terrifying Front Four, they’re all here. Following an introduction assembled from football columns of the era by famed sports columnist Jim Murray, this collection is divided into four chapters – ‘On Any Sunday’ is Leifer’s homage to the game. ‘The Legends’ includes people like Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Namath, Dick Butkus, Frank Gifford, and ‘Mean’ Joe Greene. ‘The Bosses’ delves into the victories on and off the field of coaches Vince Lombardi, John Madden, Tom Landry, Weeb Ewbank, and others. Finally, ‘The Big Game’ traces major championship games from 1958 through Super Bowl XII.
