    I hear the ESPN suits killed that idea the same day they decided to wait a few years on producing "The Rise of the Sanchize."

    For those who can't wait for the show, the "Brady 6" are, in order of Draft Day Selection, Chad Pennington, Giovanni Carmazzi (not kidding), Chris Redman, Tee Martin, Mark Bulger and Wynn Spergon.

    Bulger and Pennington had respectable, but unspectacular, NFL careers (Chad might still play again), but even including the two of them in the mix, the six together had fewer Regular Season wins as starters (88 vs. 97), fewer Playoff wins as starters (3 vs. 14), fewer Playoff Games as starters (9 vs. 18), and, of course, ridiculously fewer Division, Conference and League Championships as starters (together they had two Division Championships as starters and zip for the Conference) than Brady (8 Division, 4 Conference and 3 SB's).

    Should be an interesting show. I'll be interested in the tone toward guys like Carmazzi, Martin and Spergon.

    I'm reading this and spewing beverage ... or is that spergoning beverage on my keyboard. Trying to figure out whether or not that's an inside joke that you're waiting to see if anybody picks up on it.

    2001 was the year that not one but two Viking quarterbacks came in with one or two big games in relief of Daunte Culpepper: Wynn and Todd Bouman. Fantasy football owners scrambled to pick up both, and then dropped them a week or two later when they returned to earth after opponents had just a single game film to prepare for them.

    Reiss got some sweet stuff while at the preview at Bristol and in following up with some of the Brady 6 and Brady's Michigan teamates.

    Carmazzi (whom the 49'ers drafted in a move that according to a former teamate just killed Tommy because of his lifelong devotion to the team and his idol Montana) wouldn't be interviewed for the piece, too busy on his goat farm apparently. Tommy locked horns with him in their rookie season in a pre season game, and Carmazzi basically wasn't heard from thereafter. Wynn on the other hand not only was willing to comment, he basically said that intangibles are what make the difference and while most of them were not prepared for what being an NFL QB entails beyond arm strength and foot speed Brady embraced all of it. He said a lot of people ask him if things would have been different if he'd gone to NE and Brady landed in Cleveland. His answer is no, Brady would have done whatever it took to make that work too...

    But this comment from Brady's college teamate underscoring that is another goosebump raiser...

    Were football not the ultimate team sport where you have to count on 30 or more other guys as Bill so aptly puts it just doing their job...if it all came down to just sheer force of will on the part of the QB...there might be half a dozen or more lombardi's residing in Foxboro...

    The reviews are starting to come in, and supposedly it is very very good. This is one of those things you hope ends up on DVD.

    #3 Jersey

    Does anyone have a DVR that they can export to the computer on?

    I obviously won't be able to watch it, and don't know if I will find it online anywhere :(
