From training camp to Adam Vinatieri's game-winning field goal and its aftermath, this is the story of how the New England Patriots, maligned at the start of the season, overcame injuries and distractions to win the 2001 Super Bowl.
In the year 2001, the New England Patriots staked a claim to a part of football history that will not soon be forgotten. A last place team in 2000, they won their division in 2001, then finished with three upset playoff victories, including the stirring last-second victory over the high-octane and heavily favored St. Louis Rams in the Super Bowl. From training camp to Adam Vinatieri's dramatic game-winning field goal and its aftermath, Won for All is the inside story of how the team, maligned at the start of the season, overcame injuries and distractions to win it all - and the inside story from Pepper Johnson, the Patriots inside linebackers coach and a 13-year NFL veteran. Told in first-person narrative, Pepper gives the reader an intimate and unmatched perspective on the Patriots' amazing season. Observant and perceptive, Pepper highlights the season on and off the field as the season progressed and began to crescendo toward its unlikely finale. He also gives fans a glimpse into everyday life in the NFL. Divided into 12 chapters, the narrative reconstructs the season with intervening material on the inner workings of a team that remained largely invisible to Patriot followers. By showing what the team was like in all its dimensions and replaying all the defining moments of their magical season, Won for All has become a football classic.
