    Mixed Feelings...


    Pros: This is a great product if you're looking to have the last regular season game, all the playoff games, and the super bowl, then this is the DVD set for you! Cons: There are a few reasons why I am VERY disappointed in this product... 1) It has not been released in Hi Definition Blu-Ray, which in this day in age is rediculous. Especially since the game was originally produced and broadcast in HD! 2) On the DVD's, this format is 4:3 (Standard Definition). I could see if they released this set on DVD with the format being 16:9 so that a Blu-Ray player or HDTV set could upscale it properly to fill the screen. With this DVD set being in 4:3, you'll still have the black bars on the sides. 3) Quality...Since I'm in the television industry, maybe I'm more picky than most, but when I buy a DVD set like this...I expect quality. Again, I am very disappointed. You can tell that the games were recorded in a deck because you can see the VITC data at the top of the screen...(VITC=Vertical Interval Time Code)...which is rediculous. The other thing is that since a standard movie on DVD is approximately 2 hours long and an NFL game is 3 - 4 hours long, the makers of this DVD set obviously had to compress the video beyond belief to make each game fit on a single DVD. Again, this compromised the quality of the video. 4) The team introduction videos were cut out of the DVD that has the Super Bowl on it. It only shows the teams taking the field at the beginning. Additionally, the half time show was not included on the Super Bowl DVD either.

    For Giants fans & those who enjoy a great run!


    The reviewer before me has very valid points. I must not be that picky. I was so jazzed watching this! It shows all the playoff games, the Bowl, and the final game of regular season that somewhat ties it all together. Of course just edited to fit the discs but mostly intact. Really worth watching and kudos for the NFL for offering these kinds of DVDs, as well as Best Buy carrying them!!!!!
