In an age where there's a bunch of different options for TV shows and movies to watch, ESPN's 30 for 30 series remains one of the best. Documenting 30 stories by 30 different directors, the critically acclaimed series takes storytelling to a whole new level, giving sports fans, and even casual viewers, an inside look at things that would otherwise never be seen.
Following yet another amazing 30 for 30 the other night — which was the story about legendary wrestler Ric Flair — ESPN teased fans with one of their upcoming films: 30 for 30: The Two Bills. The film gives fans a deeper look behind the connection of two of the NFLs greatest coaches, Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick, exploring the, sometimes, complicated relationship of the Super Bowl-winning coaches. Here's the first look at the teaser.
Belichick, who has won five Super Bowl rings as head coach of the New England Patriots thanks to riding with quarterback Tom Brady since 2000, was never even supposed to be in that position to begin with. That's because Parcells handpicked the younger Bill to be his predecessor of the New York Jets back in 1999, promoting him from defensive coordinator before Bill Belichick pulled a fast one and resigned. As the story goes, Belichick allegedly wrote the words, "I resign as HC of the NYJ," on some loose leaf paper, explaining his decision to the media in a 30-minute press conference.
Now, 17 years later, Bill Belichick is considered a living legend and surefire lock to end up in the Hall of Fame. The upcoming 30 for 30 about the two coaches looks to clear up some of the confusion, and the motive, behind Belichick's decision. The usually reserved coaches open up about a number of other topics, too, with both men joining one another at a table in the Patriots locker room for an open conversation. Man, this is going to be good.
ESPN's 30 for 30, The Two Bills, is set to come this winter, so keep an eye out for it.
