Very good documentary about a great player that shows how too much too soon can derail a phenomenal career that should have been. Watching the films of his high school and college days are awesome. Sometimes he'd get through 3 to 5 tacklers with seemingly no effort. And how he got himself back in shape to play again for the Rams is inspiring. Why the Rams cut him after his 2 season comeback is baffling, though. And why did no other team pick him up? He probably had another season or two left in him. Leaves the viewer admiring his willingness to get a regular job and make a life after football. Didn't say anything about his getting married or having a family, though. This film is for true football fans who love the game and the players. It's also a cautionary tale about the "agents" and "friends" that latch onto rising stars in order to get a cut of their money.
