All the Rage
The Life of an NFL Renegade
By Charles Haley
with Joe Layden
Legendary Dallas Cowboy defensive end and the only man ever to win five Super Bowl rings, describes his career as a defensive player for the Super Bowl-winning San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, and details his experience (and run-ins) with some of the most famous names in professional football.
Haley describes what it's like to be a member of the most popular sports franchise in the world, the Dallas Cowboys. He has opinions and stories about some of football's most famous players - Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Deion Sanders, Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, Steve Young - and he discusses what it was like to play for Bill Walsh and George Seifert in San Francisco and Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer in Dallas. And he candidly talks about Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, a man with whom Haley has more than a little in common.
All the Rage is also a frank, outspoken look at the heavy price professional football extracts from its players. Haley explains how he coped with the excruciating back surgeries he withstood to keep himself in the game, and how "pain management" became his method of coping.
