Here’s the full Bruce Arians: A Football Life

Posted by Darren Urban on May 25, 2016 – 4:37 pm

A few months ago, the excellent NFL Films “A Football Life” episode on Bruce Arians was released. Now it’s available on azcardinals.com by clicking here or by watching below. It covers Arians’ story from young, sometimes-troubled kid to where he is now leading the Cardinals. It’s well worth the time to check it out.

NFL Films is also working on “A Football Life” episode of Pat Tillman and so that’s something else to look forward to seeing. And we’re still waiting on the official announcement of the availability for “All or Nothing” as well.

    Darren –

    I don’t believe Aeneas Williams has ever been the subject of a Football Life program….has he?? Sure, as a Cardinals fan I’m going to think so but I think he would be an awesome story as well. He wasn’t born with the talent / ability he had during his career in the NFL – he had to work VERY HARD to MAKE himself that good. And now his bust sits in the HOF in Canton. A long career….a top notch player for most of it….got a SB win….HOF’er….and a genuinely good man. And, frankly, his long-time dedication to the Cardinals – a losing team for pretty much the whole time he was here – makes him even more intriguing.

    I think there is a great Football Life segment to be had there. What say you?

    And by this time, I think a Pat Tillman segment is definitely over-due. Should have been done by now.

    BA is one of the most fascinating figures in sports. He is as engaging, charismatic and gregarious as coaches come. He’s always a sound bite waiting to happen—yes, to a fault at times—but hey the guy is the ultimate optimist.

    He is one of the rare coaches whose aphorisms (such as “team is what it takes” and “no risk-it, no biscuit”) are not perfunctory, meaningless platitudes.

    However, in my opinion, BA’s best quality is his prolific ability to teach. Deep down inside he fashions himself and his coaches as teachers first. Like all great teachers, he sets the tone and the bar for excellence, then he instructs the students as to what it will take to hurdle the bar, he reps them over and over and then—most importantly of all—he gives the ownership to the players themselves.

    The greatest classrooms ever are the ones where the students drive the curriculum.

    Have we ever seen a Cardinals’ players so individually and collectively invested in the team’s dreams and goals?

    A tip o’ the Kangol to BA.
