Looks at the history of the Dallas Cowboys under Coach Tom Landry, and includes interviews with Bob Lilly, Lee Roy Jordan, Bob Hayes, Drew Pearson, Randy White, Tony Dorsett, and Roger Staubach
  • "Tom and the Boys" consists of 7 interviews with former Dallas Cowboys from the halcyon days when they were truly America's Team. In addition to the 7, author Klein visits with one former executive, 2 Dallas sports writers and the old coach-Tom Landry himself. Each of the players relate the often strained, love-hate relationship they had with TL.

    It takes the reader a while to become used to the author's style. Initially, it appears that all Mr. Klein did was sit back and turn on his recorder. But after a few chapters, one realizes that this approach works. The author lets the guys tell their own story in their own way. There is virtually no editorializing here. This reviewer remembers (hopefully correctly) old Red Smith columns in New York papers that utilized the same style. That places Klein in good company!

    The most interesting interview is with running back Tony Dorsett. That's Dor-SETT! TD explains the `Boys eventual decline: "They tried to keep the `good old boy' image, instead of going out there to get the players that could have helped right away......guys with a bad reputation from college.. guys who had to get past stuff lots of young men have to deal with....they got drafted by other teams and the Cowboys forced themselves to pass on a lot of talent. When you can't get good players... when you let other teams draft them, then you can't win". That is as succinct as anyone can tell it. The Cowboys were very successful from 1966-1985, then the bottom fell out. After dismal '86, '87 and '88 seasons, Coach Landry was fired.

    The saddest chapter deals with receiver Bob Hayes. The guy never completely recovered from his 1977 bust for selling drugs. Here, Hayes calls his bust a set up and based on his side of the tale, that appears to be true. There is a not always subtle undertone of racial discrimination against Black
    Cowboys in Dallas. Several of the men-both white black cocur. Big D, at least in the time frame herein, may not have been the most progressive of towns.

    The chapter on Tom Landry is also glum. Every interviewee slams Landry's firing. The facts are that outgoing owner Bum Bright knew that incoming owner Jerry Jones was planning changes. Neither man gave TL a heads up. Landry was coming home from work at night when he got the news from a reporter. He was sacked after 29 years as the franchise's only head coach. It is true that going out a martyr saved him from the opprobrium of the 3 final losing seasons but his treatment was shabby, shabby shabby. Like Bob Hayes, one wonders how the guy has handled his fall from the pinnacle.

    This reviewer lists two minor weak points: The first is with the typesetting. There are no spacebars between paragrahps. One could get eyestrain here. Also, all the photos render the guys from their playing days. What did they look like later in life? That stated, "Tom and the Boys" is a nice look backward into a National Football League that no longer exits. No team will ever remain intact long enough to be called "America's Team" and build a similar national identity. Author Klein has stirred up some nice memories.

  • This is a pretty good book. It interviews seven of the all time great players for the Cowboys who played under Tom Landry, Five of the players are in The Hall Of Fame and all seven are in the Cowboys Ring Of Honor. There are also interviews with the Cowboys publicist and two other writers that followed the Cowboys. Frank Luska and Blackie Sherrod. And an interview with Landry himself. It's a pretty good book.
