    It's one part of a half hour segment including Tebow and the Shots of the 2011 season. It's actually about the New England season, but it is emphasizing what it means to them. Airing on NFLN right now, some emotional stuff.

    Unfortunately, it's almost over, but according to the Comcast Guide, it will air again at 4:30pm EST tomorrow.

    You might be right, I went to "Show other times for this program" or whatever, and it may have brought up "NFL Films Presents:" instead of the specific episode. I've been checking NFL.com, they have uploaded the other 2 segments from this episode, "The Book of Tebow" and "Shots of the 2011 Season", the only thing missing is "The Bittersweet 2011 Patriot Season" or something along those lines, I forget exactly what the segment was titled.

    If I find it I'll edit it into the first post and bump the thread. It was a very very good segment, Kraft talked about purchasing the team, and how it was the only time Myra ever doubted a financial decision of his, at the time. What the season means to him, what he hopes it means to his wife, what the players mean to him, what he means to the players, etc.

    Just all around great stuff, it really makes him look like a human and fan instead of the business man that most around the league see him as.

    While the story was not overly sad, you can see that a significant piece of Kraft died with his wife. I don't get emotionally invested in the personal lives of sports personalities I've never met, but I have to admit I really feel for the guy. The Pats are filling a serious void in his life and the players know it.

    I don't believe in karma or fate or an inherent sense of justice built into the fabric of things...but if there was a time for the universe to come through, this is it. Just like the red, white and blue emerging victorious after 9/11, seeing Kraft hoist the trophy a little closer to heaven just feels right.

    I saw this on Tuesday night (I believe that’s when ESPN regularly airs NFL Films Presents) and meant to check the board here to see if anyone mentioned it. Nice segment that can only be completed properly with two more wins…

    Nice clip. The piece of his wife was saddening.

    Maybe Goodell is still reviewing it....

    I apologize. For some reason (probably the proximity of a SB,) I've got 07/08 on my mind. I am a DB.

    Thanks for the Link. NFL films is pretty awesome at what they do. Got a little misty eyed during that, especially the Wilfork part..

    NFL Films does everything so well. Very touching segment and here's to Mr Kraft hoisting another trophy in a couple of weeks.

    Gonna add it to the first post for easier access. Thanks for noticing it went up!

    Edit: Just kidding. I can no longer edit that post. Should be quoted enough for anyone to find it, anyways!
