    Follows the life of former saints star Steve Gleason and his battle with ALS. What a sad story. I hope they find a cure for this terrible disease. My thoughts and prayers go out to Steve and his family.
    The documentary airs 6:00 pacific and 9:00 eastern time on NFL Network

    Have any of you watched the episode? thoughts?

    Why did Jesus give poor Mr. Gleason such an awful disease?

    Good to call attention to ALS, but I think the Machu Picchu "quest" was gratuitously overdone. It said more about Gleason's friends than about Gleason himself. A similar (and much better) story aired recently by NFL Films profiled legendary football writer Paul Zimmerman and his life after a crippling stroke. That guy's story should've gotten the hour-long treatment on "A Football Life" instead of just 18 minutes on "NFL Films Presents."
