‘Bill Belichick: A Football Life – Part I’ airs tonight on the NFL Network at 9pm. The NFL Network mic’ed up Bill Belichick for the entire 2009 season and filmed him both on and off the field.

Ken Rogers is the producer/director of the Belichick documentary and he called to talk with Toucher & Rich about the film and what it was like to be around Belichick for a year.

Did he legitimately like Belichick at the end of all of this?

“Well I liked him at the beginning and end and it wasn’t just like, it was respect as well. I think a lot of people respect him as a coach and I think what I learned and what people who watch the film will learn is that he’s equally respected as a person, as a man,” said Rogers.

Was Rogers surprised that Belichick agreed to do this sort of thing in the first place? Also there must be a ton of leftover footage from the year the spent tapping, is there any plan to release more video in the future, maybe after the special airs?

They also went on to discuss Belichick’s friendship with Bon Jovi. How much is Bon Jovi in this film and is he Belichick’s favorite person in the world?

They also discussed one of the more emotional scenes of the film where he returns to Giants Stadium the season before they tore it down. This and so much more with Ken Rogers.
