Synopsis

It’s easy to be a Monday-morning quarterback, but the true football fan has the answers all week long. Doug Lennox, the all-pro of Q&A, leads the drive as he tells us why a touchdown is worth six points, who first decided to pick up the ball and throw it, and how a children’s toy changed the sport’s biggest championship. Along the way we’ll meet players great and not-so-great and encounter the various leagues that have come and gone throughout the world.
