    Exactly.

    But if it’s gonna be somewhat chronological what about:

    1. Growing up / college / getting drafted
    2. 2000-01
    3. 2002-06 (emphasis on 03/04 wins)
    4. 2007 with SpyGate rebuttal
    5. 2008 injury and rehab
    6. 2009-13
    7. 2014-16 including Deflategate takedown
    8. 2017-19
    9. 2019 offseason and anything with the Bucs, and some sort of big picture summary.

    I am not sure that is really true. He was fine with Brady doing his TB12 stuff and Gronk doing his thing. BB cares about your play on the field and overall focus on the team. If those things are in line that he is not going to tell a guy how to live his life. That being said, it will be interesting to see now that Brady is gone how much the team and new QB (Stidham or someone else) buys into BBs culture.

    Its 9 episodes because each episode is about a specific superbowl.

    Or that's how I read it.

    I've watched all of the 3 Games to Glory DVD and Do Your Job 1 and 2 multiple times. Great TEAM videos/documentaries. I'm good.

    I'm on to OTAs....or Minicamp...or whatever comes next for the current Pats team.

    I will probably watch it once all 9 are out. No hate for Brady here.

    I agree with some of the peeps here who said this seems premature, but it could be that Brady has been bursting at the seems to tell a story all these years but in accordance with BB's wishes, kept (mostly) quiet.

    I would love to watch the part where BSPN convinced him to work with them. Then again, the fact that they're doing a puff piece on Brady tells everyone what they (and everyone else should) think about Brady, the kind of guy he is, and what he's done.

    \

    Ep 9, big pic summary... weird season of 2020 (Shortened season? Empty stands season? Virus Strike season?) Whatever happens in 20, it's going to be "And it really gave me a sort of perspective about how trivial the whole departure from NE was, the whole new start, the whole thing about one little person's place in the grand scheme of things."

    Book that ****.

    It's supposed to be about each Superbowl he's been in. So I think the first episode still covers superbowl 2001. Also 2008 and 2019 won't be its own standalone episode.

    I don't know whether it was "the" reason he left...but, yeah, I couldn't see him doing this if he were still in Foxboro. I think he really wanted to be a little more free...he had nothing more to prove in NE...and certainly didn't "owe" anyone anything.

    Theodore Roosevelt. Pretty famous speech.

    "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

    He's also an ahole.
    MJ and TB are both GOATs.
    But MJ was hated by virtually all his teammates.
    TB was loved by virtually all his teammates.
    I don't have much respect for Jordan.
    Loved watching him play.
    He's the greatest hoops player all time.
    But I dont respect him.

    Come on people! High School History. I just quoted it above. Teddy Roosevelt.

    "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
