    For those who haven't seen it, or simply want to watch it again, it is on NFL Network at 8PM EST Tonight, Friday, February 3, 2012.

    It's a very well done documentary on the story of Brady, which we all know so well by now, and, the much lesser known story of his career BEFORE coming to NE as well as the story of the 6 quarterbacks drafted ahead of him in the 2000 draft.

    Some great stuff too with Drew Hansen, who he competed with at Michigan, Hansen was later the quarterback for the winless Lions in 2008 before retiring from the NFL to take a broadcasting job with ESPN. Have to really feel bad for that guy, his indecision and impatience basically killed what could have been a great career.

    Edit: For those who can't watch it or didn't set their DVR's, as stated in the thread it is on youtube in its entirety without commercials.

    That documentary fricking rocks. The whole thing is also available piecemeal via youtube.

    My favorite part is where they're talking about Giovanni Carmazzi, and how the 49ers took him at QB and how he played against the Patriots (and Brady) in a 2000 preseason game. The 49ers were hoping Giovanni would be the next Joe Montana. The Narrator says (basically): "The next Joe Montana was on the field that day. He just happened to be playing for the other team."

    What a brilliant line.

    "Carmazzi declined to be interviewed, he described himself as a yoga practicing farmer. He owns 5 goats."

    Quick reminder, airs in about 6 minutes!

    Yup, the first time I saw it was through youtube, but everything is better in HD!

    NFL N has already butchered the opening and their logo splashes are ugly. Originally aired on ESPN, and NFLN has advertised it as "only on NFL Network". Wonder if they bought the rights to it and redid a few parts where they had to remove ESPNs logo.

    WATCH "Brady 6" on NFL NetWork.

    What a FORCE.

    Maybe the VERY best thing about Tom Brady, is that he is STILL ~ even with all the Rings and Records and Accolades and Legendarily Hot Wife ~ ONE...OF...US!! :rocker:

    I know it's been said 1000s of times how ultra-competitive, intense, etc Brady is but the thing that always gets me the most about TB is that (as least this is my impression) his parents provided him a GREAT childhood and upbringing (season tix to the 49ers, private HS, upper-class environment, etc.) but also instilled within him a work-ethic that is pretty damn impressive.

    On one hand it's a parent's job to raise their kids right but on the other hand for the parent's that DO raise their children to work hard, be respectful, etc. they deserve some credit with how they raised TB.

    He owns 5 I nearly spat my orange juice out at that line!

    Amazing how even though no one else believed in him, Tom always knew he had what it takes, massive heart the lad has.

    What boggles my mind and I still don't get is how any scout or coach that looks at Brady's film in Michigan, how the hell do they not see the accuracy, the throws into tight windows, the footwork, the fact that he came back in the fourth quarter time and time again?

    I know it's hindsight but when I saw highlights of the Orange Bowl on YouTube, you can see pretty much the same Brady of now in terms of mechanics, footwork and accuracy.

    I could have sworn that it aired on NFLN first. Not that it matters.

    Love this documentary. To me is just shows what a joke the combine is. And how in the hell was Spergeon Wynn drafted ahead of Brady is beyond me.

    Spergon Wynn was an interesting pick. Guess that's why they are the Browns.

    Spergon Wynn and especially Tee Martin come off as really good guys in this. When Martin seeks out Brady after the AFCCG and tells him he's rooting for him that's pretty classy.

    Well, it makes things balance. Six QB drafted, six goats (well, technically 5 goats and 1 GOAT).

    I think the adversity Brady face was a godsend for us too. Part of why he was drafted so late is because Carr was trying to get Hansen in at QB. Brady is the kind of person who doesn't exactly take that lying down. It made him work harder.

    His whole early career he was always fighting from the bottom up. The fact that he spent so much time being in the shadow made him who he is just as much as getting drafted in the 6th round.

    He dealt with not being 'the guy' and never wanted to be in that situation again, and he's dedicated the majority of his life to making sure he never is there again.
