Storyline

Mike Webster, the longtime center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is one of the toughest guys to ever play the game but he struggles mightily after his career. Angry and confused for reasons he cannot explain, Webster’s mood swings and fits of rage cost him his marriage and he dies a young man. After his death, Webster's brain is examined and it is found to have a condition called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) that is the result of what doctors say is the equivalent of Webster suffering the head trauma equivalent of being in 25,000 car accidents over his high school, college and 17 years in the NFL.
