of 21. >> come on chris, follow me. >> here? >> yeah. check this out. bags! >> who gave you that? who gave thaw? who dat? >> check it out. >> anthony gonzalez. >> isn't that sweet? >> very sweet. tony gonzalez is an analyst for "the nfl today" right here on "cbs this morning." good morning. >> good morning. >> listen. because football was really chris' dream, not your dream. i'm wondering as pointed that documentary was was it painful for the two of by the time it was over? >> no. you mean going through the whole process or just the process of going to the nfl? >> no. when the documentary ended for you and chris. >> our relationship after the documentary was shot i was telling you, that we stopped talking for about a year and a half. >> why?
8:44 am
>> that surprised me. >> it surprised me too. some things -- maybe it was a result of us not having anything else in common. maybe it was all of those years like, hey, football was kind of our bond and all we ever talked about so now what do we talk about? i don't know if it's like going through a divorce or something or go nesters when the kids leave the house but for years we weren't getting along and it's a process. also it's a journey about what kind of relationship we wpt from each -- want from each other. this is my road dog. he lived with me. >> i taught you this road. >> he taught me everything. >> you say at the beginning of the film you hated football. he loved it and he lived it through you? >> yes. he was my biggest confidant and my know guy. people talk about you have all of these yes guys around you. he was that guy. i always tell young guys surround yourself with somebody that you respect their opinion. when they tell you you're not doing it the right way, that
8:45 am
you'll listen to them and chris was that guy for me. everything we went around there nation around the world, he was always looking out for me and he sacrificed his life. i didn't always recognize that and 'cha that is what i've gotten back to and maybe he said that -- that's what he said one of his complaints about me was, like, you never recognized what i've done. i guess on live television, i do recognize what he has done and maybe it's taken me a long road to get to that point but i love everything that he has ever done for me. >> you also say he was a good player but he had a car accident which is why he was unable to play but he was a good player too. >> he was an outstanding football player. had the car accident when i was 5 and he was 7 and we were crossing the street. for whatever reason, he grabs me by the hand and says let's go across the street and i'm only 5. i don't care what is coming but i held back and he went out there and got hit. that kind of -- he broke his leg. he flew 50 yards, unconscious and that kind of set him back
8:46 am
obviously as that young of an age. he turned out to be a very good football player and went through division 2 scholarship but he was always that coach for me. >> another person who was influential to you and i found this really moving was your stepfather. when evers sick and in the hospital, you took a tape recorder to the hospital about every day. >> uh-huh. yeah. it's because i knew that we didn't have too much more time with him. and, obviously, it was a sad time. but, at the same time, i wanted to pick his brain and ask him, you know, give us advice. because he was such a wise man. he came in my life when i was around 12 13 years old. and for what the sacrifices that this man made are huge. and not just us, me and my brother. we also have adopted brothers that came into our home and he was a father to all of us. i miss him. >> i love that you thought of doing that because i think everybody regretted not doing something like that.
8:47 am
>> we talked about that at this table before. charlie has talked about it. you should go and interview your parents and have a tape recording of that because it's so moving in this documentary. what about your family? your family now. talk about your kids. one of them is playing football and your gorgeous wife. >> she's there. >> love playing football? >> my oldest boy is 14 now. he is playing football pop warner. we have the little girl. she is playing a lot of tennis. they plays tennis every day and the next serena williams. no pressure. my boy river and we just adopted a little baby girl. >> wow! >> my wife's sister had some problems so we are going -- we took her daughter in sophia and she has been with us five months and she is 9month-old now. >> do you think your oldest boy really wants to play football? i'm thinking about you who didn't care about the game. do you think nicco wants to play or does he think i'm tony gonzalez's son? >> at this point, he better want
8:48 am
to play! i told him, i have sat down and told this kid, look. don't ever do this because it's something that i've done and don't feel any pressure. you go out there and have fun with this game and we were talking about this. i stopped coaching him because we were like this butting heads, trying to coach your kids, i don't recommend that! >> how are you and chris today? >> we are good now. we are on the road to recovery. it took a lot of yelling and screaming and then some therapy. >> therapy? >> i'm very open about that because just like in the film, it's very candid. there is nothing pulled out of there. it's exactly how it happened. and right now with my brother, i think it's a good example of for siblings out there that don't talk to each other on. in the film my stepdad, he talks about families and everything. you do whatever you can for it. that's what we had to do. put our money where our mouth is and work this out for our family's sakes because we had a beautiful relationship. >> pop said family is
