If you aren’t aware of the America’s Game documentaries, they have to be the most underrated documentary series in sports. The intro song alone makes me want to run through a brick wall. Hot take, i’ll take these over E60’s. If you’re a football junkie in general, they cover every super bowl. I have watched all of them, except the 2007 & 2011 Giants, bet you can guess why.
One major irony I picked up, remember when the Patriots cut star safety Lawyer Milloy in 2003? The news went bonkers with reports the players hated Belichick and Brady was pissed, and they would stink as a team, and all that nonsense? Of course the media gassed the situation up, then what happened you might ask? They followed to win a super bowl and rattle off an NFL record 21 wins in a row. Nothing to see here, right? hmmmmmmmm. Not to mention the Panthers wouldn’t stop their antics pre game and in that super bowl, notice how the Philly faithful is acting? Nobody has learned.
I also found it hilarious the amount of times the commentators used to refer to the Peyton Manning Colts as the “high powered Colts” or the “juggernaut offense” – then they proceed to lay 3 points, 13 points, and 14 points on the scoreboard. Always nice to see the big bad Peyton Manning hit his favorite receiver Ty Law in big games.
