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 the life and career of Don Shula, the winningest head coach in NFL history and the legendary coach of the 1972 Miami Dolphins. This week we get a look at a modern legend in cornerback Darrelle Revis. From his rise to prowess with the New York Jets to his devastating ACL injury in 2012 and now his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, A Football Life looks to dish out more of the same great inside looks we’ve been getting so far.
