Starts at 8 PM EST on NFL Network. Just a heads up.

So many emotions flowing while watching this. Barry is my absolute favorite athlete of all-time. He is both the reason I love, and loathe the Lions.

We didn't do enough to help him win, so when I watch Calvin Johnson and what's going on with this franchise right now, I can't help but stay skeptical and critical of the job they're doing to help him win.

It's gonna kill me to watch Detroit squander two of the NFL's greatest players ever, careers.

Could you imagine if Barry had this offense when he played. Barry and CJ on the same team would be RIDICULOUS!

Loved Barry but he reconfirmed he really hosed the franchise. Had he even hinted to them about wanting to leave they could have addressed RB in the draft.


He will be one of greatest ever forever though

Rats, I totally forgot about it or I would've recorded it.

I understand why Barry retired but it certainly upset me when it happened. As a fan I really wanted him to get the record for most yards. Crying or Very sad

I also get concerned about CJ. Obviously it's only speculation but when you have a superstar player, which CJ certainly is, at some point personal accomplishment can only provide so much satisfaction. There must come a point where you want to play in the big games on a national stage.

Anyone know if it's going to be re-aired?

I had my wife set the DVR to record it for me yesterday afternoon. Pretty good show. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Talk about a chump dad. I watched it and it made me sick. I remember watching his intro into the HOF thinking his dad was a chump. The show confirmed it.
