Awful Reading Performance & Stories Are OK

I am a huge Jet fan. I read/listen to a lot of books on them. This book was disappointing. The stories were ok...superficial...I hoped for more insight and behind the scenes accounts of the Jets. Still it was interesting. The reading though is awful. Legendary coach Weeb Ewbank's first name is pronounced "Web" here. Rex Ryan apparently came to the Jets after being Defensive Coordinator of the "Buffalo Ravens." The Cleveland Browns are described as the "lonely Cleveland Browns" instead of the "lowly Cleveland Browns." Jeff Lageman is "Jeff Legman" here. It goes on and on.
