Thanks, Keith.

My book is scheduled to be published on 9/16/19. I start off by describing how I was pulled into this when the Texans drafted David Carr #1 instead of Julius Peppers. Then I describe how I would put together a franchise....

"If you have ever played the video game ‘Madden’ on GM
mode or submitted lineups for your weekly Fantasy Football
team, then you have entertained the notion that you might
know what it takes to run an NFL Franchise. In my case, I was
a high school teacher in Conroe, Texas when the newly formed
Houston Texans came into existence and decided to draft one
David Carr. My students asked me who I thought the new team
should select, and without hesitation I declared that Julius
Peppers was the best player available, and within this context
of a team starting from scratch, that was exactly the philosophy
General Manager Charley Casserly should have taken. It was
apparent to me as a casual observer, that Julius Peppers would
be successful sacking opposing Quarterbacks almost
immediately, and without the need to have talented teammates
surrounding him."
