    First thought: Wow.

    Second thought: How the @($&@$ did they not manage to mention the late Dick Rehbein? :bricks:

    LOL my wife called me from her work and I had to tell her The Brady 6 was coming on so I cut the conversation short!:D
    I liked it but it got a bit disjointed at times. Interesting how guys like Wynn, Martin and Henson turned out

    I generally liked it. Interesting to see why the 6 QBs were taken before him.

    That Giovanni guy must be...weird. He doesn't own a TV, lives on a goat farm, and was the only qb not to be interviewed. Why take a QB from Hofstra that high?

    Other than that it was great.

    Giovanni owns a goat, Tom is the GOAT. How did they miss that story line? :)

    Seriously, it was excellent. Must see stuff. If you did not catch it, be sure to set your dvr's in the future.

    Agree 100%. There was lots of talk about he was considered a "skinny kid" during his combine, etc, but I thought they missed an opportunity to talk about Brady's workout routine to "bulk up" early in his NFL career. Other than that, a very inspiring piece. There had better be football this year!!!

    dont usually tout what any thing the so called world wide leader does but that was pretty special... one of the best documentry's ive seen.. a little disapointed that we got a Bobby Grier reference and not Dick Rehbien... But Belichick was also good on there saying that he outplayed Bledsoe in the pre season as well...

    Poor Giovanni. I snickered when the announcer solemnly intoned, "He has five goats."

    An excellent documentary but will there ever be a time I can watch anything related to the 2007 season without tensing up? I mean, I almost didn't want to watch that part.

    Good show. And the tears did not look the same,in context, as they did when they showed the brief clip this morning.

    It must KILL Giovanni to see all those pictures of Brady with a goat. :D

    Absolutely loved this show. Re: Brady's emotion, I got emotional myself and it's integral to the Brady phenom because you saw up close and raw what drives this guy to this day. Other than repeating some things 10x instead of mention Rehbein and maybe Martinez, it was perfect. Recorded. One of the few anticipated shows that did not disappoint.

    We are SO blessed to have this guy.

    edit: I loved BB's statement that Tom beat out Drew in camp. I went to several camps in Smithfield that 2001 summer, and I said the same, Brady was better than Drew, and the Bledsoe Krishnas on USENET went ballistic.

    Re: Tom's emotion, I was listening to sports talk radio today and they were talking about this, not scornfully, but with respect to the drive Brady has and how that made him the QB he is. Then they went on an absolutely epic rant about how every scout working that year should have been fired and how in the hell could they possibly have missed the potential Brady had. It was a nice reaction to that clip.

    Personally, Tom has never hidden the fact that he gets emotional....anyone who watched him get his ring from the second championship knows he cries when overwhelmed with emotion. That just showed me he's the same guy he ever was.

    Great documentary. My wife watched a little and she is not a big football fan. She asked me, so after all that, how did he do what he did? I said it can only be attributed to one thing; determination.

    After watching him tear up when he thought about dropping to the 6th round I hope he comes back with a vengeance next season.

    Stick it to them one more time Tom.

    Brady is still as focused and driven as he ever was. We as NE Pats fans are truly blessed to have him as our QB. The second it was over I yelled out "Start the season NOW!!!"

    Loved the ending, Kiper saying the negatives about him.

    Sad sad day when he goes, enjoy this time.

    I never realized how terrible that 2000 NFL draft was by Belichick and Company, Brady really saved their asses in that sense. Also makes you appreciate the more recent drafts that much more.

    In case anyone missed the other thread, a great article about Rehbein's part.

    I'm not a Bledsoe Krishna (whatever that is) and count myself among those who think that Drew just didn't have the fire or overall talent to win a championship, even though he was a very good QB.

    However, not to pick a nit, but in the piece, BB actually said that Brady "had a better camp" than Drew not that he "beat him out." In his next sentence, BB then said that they still didn't think Brady "had the experience" to start. People will, of course, interpret that any way they want, but, if you just look at what he said, it does seem as though BB felt that Drew's experience gave him the edge over Brady at the time.

    The show was great; to my memory it is the most laudatory piece ever done by ESPN on a player before he retired. If it's possible to be "nostalgic before the fact," it kind of made me wonder what they'll cook up when he retires...maybe the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

    To me these were the most interesting aspects of the program:

    Belichick admitting that Lloyd Carr's refusal to give Brady the starting job outright in his senior year made him "wonder if something was going on there" and was the reason they let him fall down the board. I know that Brady has been nothing but highly complimentary of Carr, but, in all of his emotion in his heart, he has to know in his head that that alone is the reason he fell all the way to the sixth round.

    Saddest Case: no, not Giovanni Carmazzi's "five goats," but Drew Hensen's statement that he could have been a great NFL QB had he not tried baseball. Hensen has to live with and cling to that illusion/dream/hope every day of his life. It was amazing that ESPN found the clip of his striking out (looking) his first time at bat in MLB. I had forgotten that it was Parcells who actually pulled the plug on his career as a starting QB in the NFL.

    Moment of Truth. Steve Mariucci. In fact, the whole sequence around the niners was fascinating, starting with the footage of Montana and Young as the lead-in to the 2000 draft and then the footage of Carmazzi freezing up after getting hit a few times. But the best quote, maybe of the entire program, was Mariucci saying that "I'd probably still be coaching San Francisco if we'd picked Tom Brady."


    I thought that the treatment of Tee Martin, Wynn Spergon and Chris Redman was very respectful and balanced. I was surprised at how dismissive they were of Chad Pennington.

    So, great show. Yeah!

    [Footnote: Carr's (mis-)judgment call has to be part of any assessment of Carr's legacy. He had the greatest QB of a generation (and among the best of all time) on his team for four years and caved to the campus and media politics that said Hensen was the next great thing instead of starting Tommy outright in his senior year, as he deserved.]

    What a great documentary. My favorite part was when Kirk Herbstreit said that Henson had to play over Brady because Brady didn't have nearly as much potential. It is amazing how willing NFL teams and even Brady's coaches at Michigan were willing to overlook his performance on the field. Everyone at Michigan now acknowledges that Brady was the leader of the team and that he outperformed Henson. Scouts should have realized he outperformed Henson, who they thought was number one pick material - logic, then Brady is number one pick material. That being said, scouting quarterbacks is probably the hardest job in sports and I understand how Brady was overlooked. THANK THE LORD.

    Scouting and Personnel Dept's share part of the blame. " The Comeback Kid" played for one of the top teams in the country, had a 20-5 record as a starter and was a two time team captain. Senior year stats were 20/6 TD/INT with 63% completion. Wynn played at Southwest Texas State and had 13/12 TD/INT with 47% completion. No way should Wynn have been picked before Brady. Brady's Combine performance must have had something to do with it also.
