    Between this piece and the piece on Steve Sabol, these could be two of the better programs NFL Network has done.

    Haven't seen it yet, but wonder how they handle Pat's "elbow problem."

    Just caught up with it on DVR, great stuff, I'd forgotten how he was the voice of so much of CBS' tennis and golf coverage.

    For me, Football Life is the best thing NFL Network does. It is the only must-see thing for me on there.

    Another excellent documentary.

    They did not sugarcoat his alcoholism a bit.

    Very interesting, with great CBS NFL footage from the '70's.

    The stories about Summerall and Brookshier at the Sun Bowl in El Paso weren't in there........but there were many times they were getting back across the border from Juarez as the sun was coming up the day of the game.

    Not to threadjack but Juarez used to be a wonderful place.

    Have that on DVR, as Chef mentioned in the OP, the Sabol one was tremendous.

    I noticed Whitlock - who fancies himself an authority on the Schottenheimer-era Chiefs - got maybe 10 seconds on the Derrick Thomas documentary.
    Not saying anything the least bit insightful.
