The 2013 NFL season is underway and fans everywhere are back in the mood for some gridiron action. But with all the clashing of the pigskin titans that goes one, we forget the poetry of the game. NFL Network reminds us of that poetic background football has with it’s documentary series A Football Life, which begins airing it’s third chunk of documentaries tonight.
It’s not as sappy and sentimental as Ken Burns Baseball documentary series, but it’s just as good and gets across some of the best stories ever told, or not told, in NFL history.
Last week we got an inside look at LaDainian Tomlinson and the ill-fated San Diego Chargers teams of the mid to late 2000s. This week continues the trip down memory lane as NFL Network highlights legendary head coach Don Shula and how he helped not only became the winningest coach in football history but led the Miami Dolphins to the only undefeated season in NFL history back in 1972.
