Season 2 of NFL Network‘s A Football Life documentary series premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 8pm ET, with “The Faces of Tebow.” Whether it’s about his outward expression of religious beliefs, his remarkable (some say miraculous) 2011 season with the Denver Broncos, his character or his questionable skills as a passer, every NFL fan has an opinion about New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow.
Several former players who’ve excelled at quarterback share their thoughts on Tebow both on and off the field in “The Faces of Tebow.” Joe Namath, Roger Staubach, Steve Young, Doug Flutie and Kordell Stewart weigh in on Tebow’s qualities as athlete, leader, lightning rod and man of faith.
On Sept. 19, Ray Lewis: A Football Life chronicles life off and on the field for the Baltimore Ravens linebacker. Lewis became the first player in NFL history to wear a wireless microphone in every game for an entire season.
