I'm excited for the Faces of Tebow...

niel89 09-04-2012 07:00 PM

Awesomeness! I didn't even realize this was a repeating show. I can't describe how excited I am for the Ray Lewis one. One of the defining players of this generation.

This looks incredible. I need to see last season because apparently I missed some good stuff based on the preview. The McNair one is going to be rough.

Raiderz4Life 09-04-2012 09:29 PM

Ray Lewis, Immaculate Reception, Tebow, and McNair will be the ones I will NOT miss for anything.

I'm looking forward to McNair. My favorite non-49ers quarterback.

So did anyone watch the Tim Tebow episode? I didn't.

Eazy Picks 09-13-2012 07:04 PM

sounds pretty good, very well done series last year, nice list they have for this upcoming year.

Ness 09-20-2012 05:24 PM

The Ray Lewis episode was great.

Don Vito 09-20-2012 05:32 PM

Yeah the Lewis episode was incredible. It is difficult to understand how he is still so good, as a Pats fan I don't want him on the field against us but as a football fan I wish he could play forever.

Ness 09-20-2012 05:39 PM

Well he trains constantly. I'm sure there is some God-given talent within him, but it seems like he's always been a hard nose guy that just stays on the grind every single season. He wouldn't have been able to play this long without that amount of dedication to his body and craft. It's going to be really weird when he decides to retire. I do see the Ravens at least making it to a Super Bowl before he hangs it up though.

BigBlueNorwegian 09-20-2012 07:29 PM

The Tebow episode was meh, but the Ray Lewis episode is one of the greatest documentaries I've ever seen! Man, I wish he gets another Super Bowl ring before he retires.

D-Unit 09-20-2012 07:33 PM

There needs to be an Antonio Cromartie one that features all the women he had kids with. LOL

Ness 09-20-2012 07:40 PM

Coughlin is next week. I'm interested to see if they talk a good amount about what he did while he was in Jacksonville. He assembled some pretty good teams there. Super Bowl worthy teams.

Also, I was kind of disappointed that with the Ray Lewis feature they didn't talk that much about his draft-day experience and his first few years in Baltimore when he was a young player.

Ness 09-27-2012 02:04 PM

So what is after Coughlin? I saw there was a thread already made for it.

Cromartie is small time compared to Travis Henry.

95 Browns.

vidae 09-27-2012 06:04 PM

I really liked the Coughlin one and I'm interested in the 95 Browns one as well.

Finally got NFLN now that they cut a deal with TWC. I caught the Tom Coughlin one when it premiered and the Ray Lewis one earlier today. Both were pretty awesome but I loved the Tom Coughlin epi especially. Crazy to see the journey that he took from taking the Jags to two AFC championships then being run out of town, to being hated initially as the Giants coach then taking them to the Superbowl, and finally almost being run out of town yet again only to win another one. Pretty awesome to see how he handled the media scrutiny and finally got to cement himself as one of the better coaches in recent memory. Really great stuff and I wanna watch that Belichick episode soon.

Where can I watch season 1?

You can't. Unless NFL Network decides to replay some of the older episodes. Or you have a way to torrent maybe. Assuming someone has uploaded it.

Mark Brunnell, Jimmy Smith, Fred Taylor, McCardell. Brunell also made the probowl with pedestrian statistics in today's league.

They were 14-2, they stomped the Dolphins 62-7 in the divisional and then lost to the Titans for the third time that year in the AFC championship.

Ness 09-29-2012 12:48 PM

Mark Brunell was a good quarterback in his heyday. I was watching the 1996 AFC Divisional playoff game the other day and he looked brilliant. The velocity on his throws was exceptional.

asdf1223 10-03-2012 09:53 PM

Anyone catch the Browns doc. Was pretty great.

themaninblack 10-03-2012 10:03 PM

Yea the Browns one was pretty awesome. I hate that team but I kind of feel for them seeing how it all went down and all the talent they had on that coaching staff. I can't imagine how I would react if the Bengals were to be taken away from me.
