A Football Life. Jimmy Johnson

Recommended Posts

Anybody catch this last night on NFL Network?

It was fantastic. That guy got me fired up sitting kn the couch. Very insightful.

One of my favorite things was him talking with Bill Belicheck on his boat. "I want smart players. You can reason with smart players. They can be taught. But you can't with .". Then Belicheck says something like " you taught me that early, that's what I try to do".

Really good stuff. That's probably my 2nd favorite one behind the Bill B one.

They do such an awesome job with the "Football Life" series. I loved the scene with Belichick and probably would have sacrificed a pinky toe or something to have been on that boat.

I thought it was funny, too, that they did a little segment on Johnson's hair. I mean, it's his trademark thing... you can't ignore that.

Yes the NFLN and NFL Films have always done a beautiful job on capturing the elements, emotional, drama, etc. of the game and its participants. . . .

I love the Football Life series, it is a great show. . . . I watchs parts of the show and thought it was great . .. it was kind of neat to see BB on the boat with JJ, I know they spend a lot of time together and have more than one thing in common. Also its always fun to see the non-press conference side of BB . . . :cheer:

As GoPats mentioned I would love to be a fly on the wall for some of the conversations over the years JJ and BB have had with their hair done . . . assuming that is possible for JJ :D

it was a great show . . .

I only saw a few clips of it on NFL.com, but I thought it was great. "A Football Life" is certainly one of the better productions NFL Films has done.

    • The reason they both look tired by 3rd quarter is because they are on the field way too much throughout the game.
    • They just tied the record for the second most sacks given up in the entire history of the Colts and folks, that goes back a long way. They can't see their feet much less a light at the end of the tunnel. A good coach solves problems like many teams have done this season. The Colts get worse and that means either the staff is incompetent or they simply don't give a rats rear. Pagano's post game press conference after the disaster at home with the Jags showed he does not care. He was sarcastic and avoided every question insulting the reporters just doing their jobs. When you get hammered at home you have only one thing left to do and that is make n attempt to be respectful of the reporters who will turn and tell the fans what you said and how you said it. Ignorant Brissett said "Is there a problem with this team"? Yes there is smart guy and you a part of it. Hilton hammers the OL in public. All signs point to Pagano's lack of authority over his players. He want to be daddy and Santa Clause to football players. That has never worked at any level. 
    • We can probably even argue the more power he's been given and the freer he's been during his tenure the more his weaknesses have shined and overtaken the performance of the team. In a weird twisted kind of way Grigson might have been a balance to the buddy-buddy relationship between Pagano and the players. Right now wheels are falling off both on the field and off the field(players blaming whole position groups for the  failings of the team in front of sensation-hungry journalists, etc). I previously thought Pagano was an OK coach who simply not good enough to go against the best of the best. Right now I'm revising my view and leaning more and more toward the conclusion that he's not even as good as I used to give him credit for. From preparation to personnel decisions, to game management to player development... where is he even remotely successful? I don't see it. To me this looks like a total and complete failure on all fronts by Pagano. 
    • They do get paid to guess.    They are drafting potential.    His picks didn't live up to their potential.    He got fired.    It's a very common story
    •   Actually according to overthecap.com we’ve got the most cap space for 2018. That, combined with a healthy Luck, a top 5 draft pick, Chris Ballard, a good nucleus of players, an impending coaching staff change from top to bottom (hopefully), and an aging/retiring older generation of QBs that have dominated the AFC, I believe the future is bright in Indy.
