Editorial Reviews

In nine seasons as head coach of the Green Bay Packers, Vince Lombardi won five NFL championships. The last two came in 1966 and '67-the years of the first two Super Bowls. Nearly 30 years later, Mike Holmgren's Packers brought the Lombardi Trophy home again, and Green Bay was "Titletown" once more. In January, 1967, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Green Bay faced the Kansas City Chiefs of the American Football League in what was then called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game, later renamed Super Bowl I. The '66 Packers were loaded with seasoned veterans like Bart Starr, Jerry Kramer, and Ray Nitschke. But Green Bay's victory in Super Bowl I owed much to an unlikely hero-a 34-year-old receiver named Max McGee, who had caught only four passes all season and had stayed out all night before the game. Lombardi's strategy was simple and predictable: here's the power sweep and the fly pattern-now try and stop us. It worked because Lombardi was relentless in his pursuit of perfection. The Packers' epic run through the '67 post-season was the final proof of their-and Lombardi's-greatness. A victory over Dallas in the legendary "Ice Bowl" secured a third-straight NFL title. Then, in Lombardi's final game with the Packers, they crushed Oakland in Super Bowl II. In the 1990s, head coach Mike Holmgren developed quarterback Brett Favre into an NFL MVP who could execute his west-coast offense in spectacular fashion. Holmgren's work paid off in 1996, when Favre's offense tied a franchise record for wins and led the league in scoring on the way to the Super Bowl. All-Pro defensive end Reggie White spearheaded a defense that gave up the fewest points in the NFL that year. But it was return man Desmond Howard who made the greatest impact against New England in Super Bowl XXXI.

When I first saw this set of DVD's advertised I thought it might be too pricey especially was for something I'd already recorded for myself off the NFL Network. But when the set's price came down and I checked further, I knew I had to have it. Not only is there an extra hour of rare vignettes on the Packers and Vince Lombardi, but the quality is first rate. It's far better than anything I could put on DVD myself.

The vignettes include a new 15-minute segment on the Ice Bowl, one of the greatest games ever played. For me, just to have this 2007 segment was worth the price of the 3-disk purchase. There are also bits on the 1965 college all-star game where Lombardi's Packers suffered something of a mental letdown and lost the game. Did this discourage the coach and his players? Not for long, as they say in the NFL. Lombardi used this game over and over again in the ensuing season to push his team to victory. In the 1966 re-match against the collegians, the Packers won, 38-0. Finally, there are interviews and profiles of some Packer greats, including Ray Nitschke, Elijah Pitts, Bart Starr, Jerry Kramer, Dave Robinson, and Coach Lombardi, himself. What golden nuggets these are!

For Packer junkies like me, who grew up in Wisconsin with the great Lombardi teams, these DVD's are a treasure. Only problem is that it makes you want more, like a DVD collection of Lombardi's 12 greatest games. In my view, these would be his 9 championship victories and playoff wins against the Colts in 1965 and Rams in 1967. Another one should be the comeback win against the Lions in Detroit in 1965.

Someone also needs to put on DVD the made-for-TV special, "Legend in Granite." The show was produced in 1973 and stars Ernest Borgnine as Vince Lombardi.

Awesome depiction of the Packer's 3 winning seasons. It has great background of Vince Lombardi. The DVDs also have great insight on the early Green Bay Packer Teams. This is a must have for any Packer fan. If you are not a Packer fan, you will be after the DVDs.

I got this set, and Amazon is wrong - these 3 discs are NOT in widescreen format. Based on some reviews I've seen for the "America's Game" DVDs for other teams, I am pretty sure that none of them are in widescreen format. That's too bad - the NFL shows the "America's Game" broadcasts on the NFL Network in widescreen format, so why can't they put the widescreen format on DVD?
