San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice was the latest player to be featured on NFL Films’ “A Football Life,” which premiered on Wednesday.
The documentary covers Rice’s journey as a poor kid to his lasting legacy he left on the NFL. One of the highlights for me was the section that focused in on Rice’s rivalry with Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders. If you missed out on viewing it on Wednesday night, I highly recommend watching the flick. It is on par with Eddie DeBartolo’s “A Football Life” that was released in 2012.
According to my cable TV guide (Comcast Bay Area) the NFL Network will show Rice’s “A Football Life” again on Saturday, February 1, at noon and 5 P.M. It will also air on Sunday, February 2, at 2:30 P.M., ending right before the start of the Super Bowl. They should have shown the documentary during the Super Bowl, so us Niners fans will have something to watch. All times are Pacific.
If you don’t have cable TV or you just can’t wait to watch it, 49ers.com posted the documentary in six parts. Click HERE to view.
