This may seem stupid , but anyone know when the Nfl Network will air America's] Game regarding SuperBowl 43 ?? I think that series is great !!!!!

I KNEW Tomlin would be one of them. I am guessing Ben and, maybe, Hines? Or Santonio.

Are you kidding? Dude...google "America's Game"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/index.html?curid=7601544


It's one of the best series about Super Bowl champions ever produced. There is an episode for every winning team (and a few of the more notorious losers). You can buy the lot of them for the Steelers.

Go to NFL.com for more info.

Gotta have LeBeau in it

Can't wait!!

I would have had him over Tomlin...my opinion, but I can't see two coaches speaking. I bet with Tomlin, Roethlisberger they will have a third, defensive player. Troy maybe? Farrior?

Only other option I see is Hines.

According to the Wikipedia link, the other narrator is Harrison

what time will it be airing? Im thinking 9pm I never saw a time

CanadianSteel

Wow if Harrison is the third then I reall am pumped.... was thinking Farior as well as he is outspoken... and will be someone from the defense... Troy would be cool in his little soft spoken voice as well... but Harrison would be awesome..

08-26-2009, 10:18 PM
Ya gotta figure he'll be talking about "The Play"... so it does make sense for Harrison to be in there.

On my DirecTV channel guide, the show info for this episode mentions Tomlin, Ben and Troy. Not Harrison...interesting.

Nice 2 hear.

According to the Wikipedia link, the other narrator is Harrison

Harrison? Wow, what a terrible choice. I mean I love the guy, even bought his jersey, but when it comes 2 media related stuff, our guy is not that good is what I think. If it was up 2 me, I'd go with veterans. For example, Mr. Lebeau, Farrior, & Hines. The youngsters will get their chance so many times. :wink02:

did you even read the article you posted? it premiers tomorrow night. thats a 15 yard mb misconduct penalty flag for you! :nono:

But Tomlin is the star of the show. :applaudit:

He recounts his methods and mistakes as a rookie coach after taking the reins from former coach Bill Cowher following the team's disappointing 2006 season.

Tomlin's passion for his players and his craft is also on full display.

"We appreciate the end result of our work," he says. "I appreciate just getting to do the work.

"I want to smell roses -- I make a conscious effort to."

ive been anticipating this almost as much as the season opener vs. titans. after this is inside the nfl on showtime with bill cowher. i may even take in hard knocks after that on hbo to scout the suck we get to whip 2X this season.

That friggn rocked baby.... Tomlin is the coolest cat around....and the part about him waking up in the night the week of the superbowl to go over interception returns and for the D to rally around the ball carier to help them score was just awesome insight leading into Harrisons return in the Superbowl.....

Just finished watchin Americas Game :tt03:

I love Coach T, I love Troy, I love Big Ben.

What a game, what a team, what a year. I love watchin these cause you get to hear and see so much more and it brings so much more perspective and appreciation for what they went through, how hard they worked, how they pulled together - Band of Brothers - and just what they accomplished. the 2008 Steelers epitomize 'TEAM' .


On a side note, Troy says he really doesn't 'love' football, he just loves life and football is a part of life. GEEZE, can you imagine what he'd be like if he actually LOVED football ?:wink02: Troy, you're the best, man :thumbsup:

Troy talking about the AFC Championship game...

"on the huge stage of the AFC championship game rookie QB - rookie Coach on the sidelines and your thinking wow what a great time for them to come back and kick a field goal and beat their rivals they lost too twice. That would be a great story for them

......umm but it didn't happen that way." :chuckle:

HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO :tt:excellent post which perfectly sums up my sentiments after watching this.

as for troys comments, if he loved this game as much as some of his contemporaries do, it would either leave him with 100 concussions, a broken neck, or an opponent left either dead or with permanent paralysis on the field.

troy, ben, and tomlin were the epitome of "greatness" in this show (pardon me for waxing poetic, but it was that good.)

Preacher

Just finished watching the show. It was great.

Love how they tied it in from the previous SB.

The very end just killed me. Ben, the winningest QB for his age. Tomlin, the youngest coach to ever win a SB. Troy. A great crowd surfer. :laughing:

Absolutely hilarious.

It's on the NFL Network, hour long show. I love the part about Coach Tomlin getting out of bed and making the video cut up about interceptions and getting offensive after the pick. One of my favorite things in football is seeing defenders turn into blockers.

I watched the first 5 by buying and downloading them from iTunes (Link (http://video.tvguide.com/SHOWS/America's%20Game:%20The%20Super%20Bowl%20Champions )) at 2 bucks a pop as I haven't had NFL Network until very recently myself, but it doesn't look like they have the 2008 Steelers program uploaded for sale yet.
