You’ve probably heard the story: rookie quarter back of a bad team leads his team in a comeback (against an admittedly bad team). Six points behind, on the second to last play of the game, he gets hit so hard that his shoulder is separated and, by rule, he has to leave the field…unless the opposing team calls a time out, which it does. He throws off the doctors and reenters the game to throw the winning touch down.
Now watch the video. The quarterback was miced. The video is pretty inspired.
I’ve always loved NFL Films even before I followed the game–they bring the game to a mythical level, symbolic struggles with giant men.
