“A Football Life” – What They’re Saying

A Football Life, Cara Angelucci, New England Patriots, Ramblings and Rants

If you haven’t noticed by the impressive amounts of “Bill” wallpapered all over our blog, we have a big film premiering tomorrow on the NFL Network.

We recently distributed a few screener copies of the film for a sneak preview of the new Bill Belichick: A Football Life. Below is some of the early feedback to the film and its announcement.

PS – After the show airs, we promise to return the blog to its original form, switching from an “impressive” amount of Bill to a “unimpressive” amount.

The anticipation is rewarded. In its usual way, NFL Films has gotten Belichick right.”
