In the National Football League and in life in general, change is constant. Change allows us to put things into perspective. It makes us aware of our ability, as human beings, to adapt and to be productive despite our circumstances. It makes us more versatile. It allows us to prove that we can be successful in any environment based on the strength of who were are as an individual and the strength of our character. While surfing the internet, I found a top ten video of the top ten greatest football players that finished their careers elsewhere. Watch the video here, or click the image of Jerry Rice above!
“Just before the final weekend of the NFL pre-season kicks off, ESPN will air a documentary, RGIII: The Will To Win, chronicling his return to playing form following the ACL tear he suffered in last season’s playoffs against the Seahawks. Wale recorded a song for the docu-flick, “No Pain, No Gain,” and you can hear a small snippet of it in the above clip.”
There’s a full song available at soundcloud down below:
Tom Brady’s documentary on his rise to fame in the National Football League as well as his collegiate quarterback experience at the University of Michigan. The University of Michigan was an awesome training ground for Tom Brady. With all the talent surrounding him, Brady was faced with a sink or swim situation. Tom Brady may not be the fastest, the strongest, the most elusive or the most agile, but he was definitely the most determined. Brady struggled to maintain a starting role during his college career and had to fight off sophmore Drew Henson during his junior and senior year as the University of Michigan’s starting quarterback.
Brady’s most memorable collegiate performance was at the Orange Bowl where he was able to win the game for his team in overtime. Brady was named “The Comeback Kid!” Brady’s struggle for recognition continued when it came time for Brady to be drafted to the National Football League. His scouting report read like a train wreck, but that did not deter Tom. Brady was definitely not a star at the combine. His 40 time and vertical jump were the worst that any scouter had ever seen. Six quarterbacks were chosen before Tom Brady. Tom Brady was eventually drafted as the 199th overall pick for the New England Patriots.
Tom Brady possessed an intangible that most scouters could not see; confidence. He by far is the most poised quarterback I’ve seen play in the toughest of situations, and that’s what makes him great. The quarterbacks that were chosen before Tom Brady (the Brady 6) were:
Spergon Wynn | Chad Pennington | Tee Martin | Chris Redman | Giovanni Carmazzi | Marc Bulger
Brady is the youngest quarterback to win 3 Super Bowl titles. He was able to make castoff and newcomer wide receivers appear as though they were veterans. He was looked upon to be a good quarterback let alone a potential Hall of Famer, but he was and he is.
“I want to feel as though I’m the best quarterback for this team…..I want to earn it every single day!” – Tom Brady
RG III discusses his rehabilitation from his ACL and MCL tears, practice reps, communication on and off the field with his coach Mike Shanahan, his expectations for the 2013-2014 season, his promises to his parents concerning his health, and the documentation of his rehabilitation through his partnership with Gatorade.When asked if he would consider his season this year a comeback story he states “you always have to play like you were never gone.”
On July 23rd, Robert Griffin III was cleared for practice activities six months after the injury. Robert Griffin III’s documentary, “Will to Win” is due to air on ESPN on August 27th.
Fox Network has officially began a Fox Sports 1 channel. Michael Strahan has managed to charm his way into a “1 on 1″ interview series on the channel and has decided to kick off the series with a one on one interview with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Michael Strahan discusses the possibility of Tom Brady ending his career, Tom Brady’s family life, and his appreciation of the game of football as a league veteran and potential hall of fame candidate.

Keyshawn Johnson and Darrelle Revis have a sit down discussion concerning Darrelle’s current ACL rehabilitation as a result of his early season ACL tear last year, his expectations for the season as a corner for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tim Tebow and the Jets, and the Jet’s poor win-loss record last season.
Steven Jackson has now celebrated his 30th birthday and one has got to wonder whether his body can hold up another season in the National Football League. Steven Jackson now plays for the Atlanta Falcons, a team with good playoff prospects for current season. The Slant, via Mark Kriegel, covers the story of Steven Jackson and the possibility of achieving a feat that Jim Brown, Earl Campbell and a few other Hall of Famers were unable to accomplish. Watch the video covering Steven Jackson prospects in Atlanta here !
Tom Brady limps off the field after a practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New England today. Tom Brady is reportedly injured which leaves Tim Tebow as a possible starter of the New England Patriots for the 2013-2014 NFL Season. It seems as though God has worked things out in Tim Tebow’s favor again. Initially, Tebow was destined to play in the Canadian Football League after being cut from the Patriots, but now he is in a good position to start on one of the more premier teams of the NFL. Tom Brady will be going into his 14th season in the league and his recent aggravated injury may be the nail in the coffin. Tom Brady suffered an ACL tear back in 2008.
Read more from editor Gregg Rosenthal here. The story is still a development which means that Tom Brady’s current status is still to be determined. Would you want to see Tim Tebow starter for the Patriots? Will Tom Brady be well enough to start on Week 1? Only time will tell.
Adrian Peterson is by far the best player of the NFL 2012-2013 season due to the fact that he was injured the previous year and came back the following year and come 9 yards shy of beating Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record.
This guy is unbelievable. He is one of the few running backs that I have witnessed break big runs against a 4-6 defensive formation on a consistent basis. He brings a different element to the game. Furthermore, he is not a bulky back, but yet he is almost impossible to tackle. He has blazing speeding and remarkable cut ability.
He must be one of the most dedicated, determined and running backs in the league. He managed to amass 1,000 plus yards after contact. And he never gives up on the play. An amazing running back!
