    I thought it was pretty interesting. Bill is definetly grooming his son to be a coach like I'm sure his dad did with him.

    It was interesting in a lot of ways. Stuff like Brady meeting with BB to discussing plays, then saying "I'm going to meet with (his QB coach) after this", then BB saying "I'll be in right after you". And the long speech he gives to the team about how showing emotion and congratulating one another is a good thing because it gets everyone pumped up and instills fear in the opponent (you wouldn't think that he would care about such things).
    Or when Derrick Mason tries to taunt BB and he says F**k you Mason. Look at the scoreboard"

    I really enjoyed it. In fact, I enjoyed it so much it makes it a little harder to hate him. :) Still easy to hate Brady though (especially with his high-pitched whine when Belichick told him to quit babying his knee and step into his throws). :D

    Of course, I love any behind-the-scenes look at football. I watched a "Sounds of the Game" special over the week that had behind-the-scenes stuff from camp, with the Steelers, Rams, etc., and I loved hearing Tomlin and Spagnulo razz their players.

    Can't wait to see this; missed the first showing but it's recording tonight. Belichick is definitely a genius when it comes to football and the clips I've seen so far have been great.

    All you Brady haters, I'm sure you'd feel differently if he was the quarterback on your team :).

    That was embarrassing, right up there with the dancing and water slide videos. :eek:

    I was also impressed with the arm on his son. That kid could sure throw that football!

    Part 2 was interesting as well. The discussion between Brady and Bellichick about how the team can't play consistently. I don't remember Bellichick's father dying, but the visit to his grave was touching (at least his dad got to see him win 3 Super Bowls). I remember Welker blowing out his knee and that they lost the Playoff game, but had forgotten what a total beat-down it was (maybe I blacked out the memories).

    I killed my Season pass however, I don't have a lot of interest in Reggie White.

    Has anyone else been watching this? I've liked them all. I really enjoyed the Jerome Brown part of the Jerome/Reggie one. I didn't know much about him.

    I actually liked the Kurt Warner one, his story has been beaten to death so I was a little leary about watching it but they did the whole hour without mentioning God a hundred times.

    I liked the Walter Payton one too, he was one of my all-time favorite players. It's just sad that he died so young.

    I found the first one (Bellichick) very underwhelming and quickly lost interest. If this were the summer, I'd probably still watch. But there are too many things now on TV competing for my time. There just wasn't enough behind the scenes material to keep me interested.
