3.0 out of 5 stars NFL films finally puts these out! October 14, 2008
By bigchet
Verified Purchase
OK, I've had these games on VHS tapes for years. I bought this set seeking better quality which I did not get. I thought SB's 9 and 10 were fair at best. I thought my VHS copy of SB 10 was better quality than the one in this set. SB's 13 and 14 were good, but not great. Actually SB 9 and 14 were basically the same copy quality I already had. SB 40 was excellent quality which it should be being the newest.

If you don't already own pirated VHS copies already, you should buy these.
If you are like me already owning copies of these and looking for better quality, you're not gonna get it.

Also, why do teams like the Giants and Cowboys have more games than the Steelers, Raiders and 49ers? Ok this was released before SB 43, I understand. But, the Steelers have had many other great games besides the Super Bowls. What about the 1995 AFC Championship game? The immaculate reception game (which i'm not sure exists). The 1975 AFC Championship game vs oakland? The 1978 and 1979 AFC Championship games? How about the 1979 regular season overtime wins vs the Browns? 1989 wildcard win vs Houston. 1984 upset of 49ers and playoff upset of Denver? Just suggestions.OK I know they're are the 2005 and 2008 SB playoff sets.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing release from Warner October 19, 2008
By G. W.
This was a highly anticipated release seeing how Warner was releasing 5 Steeler Super Bowls complete and uncut. First of all, the games are not complete. To speed up the game they cut a lot of the in between play commentary and sideline camera work. Maybe a small detail to some, but I see it as false advertisement. Second of all, the quality on these is downright shameful. I have recorded better quality from VHS of televised programs from the late 70's than these. It looks as if they transferred the games from a really bad VHS recording. Don't be fooled by the pristine crystal clear pictures of the various games on the DVD cover and back because what you get inside on the discs is horrible. Even the 5th superbowl quality is not what you would expect from something that was just recording in 2005. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. I watched these games when they originally aired and the quality of the games back then wasn't that bad. Don't get me wrong, I understand about deterioration of film over time, but these are ridiculous. If you are a die hard Steeler fan like myself then these recordings might be of interest, otherwise I would highly recommend saving your money and look on Ebay or for someone that might have the original recorded games which I am sure will have better quality than this. Warner definitely dropped the ball on this release. Too bad. Definitely not worth the money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where did they get the source for these games October 17, 2008
Verified Purchase
Like a previous review indicated - the quality of these games are below standard - there has to be better quality footage in the network vaults - these look like they were copied from a bootlegged VHS tape instead of the network source tape -- having said that -- it's still a great piece of history

1.0 out of 5 stars What was NFL Films thinking? October 25, 2008
By DGKid
Let me start by saying I am not a Steelers fan. Unfortunately, my Cowboys are on two of these discs, and I love a chance to watch Roger, the original T.D. and Hollywood. I pray... that the Dallas Cowboys set is NOWHERE near the quality these games are. I've found multiple versions of these games on the internet that put these "digitally mastered" copies to complete shame. Super Bowl X is almost unwatchable and Super Bowl IX? Oofa... The unfortunate thing is, this was a chance to 'get it right' and the NFL blew it big. I rated it one star only because I wasn't sure if ZERO stars would register a review here. Don't waste your money. Go find the games on the internet somewhere.

I received my copy and attempted to watch super bowl 9 and then 10. The video was so poor on a 1080P top of the line plasma I wrote to customer service at Warner Brothers and was told that it was not a flaw, that was the best video that could produce.
I had purchased Super Bowl 10 on Ebay and it was at least clear enough to watch. The 9 and 10 games are worse than any video I have ever purchased. I find it hard to believe there is not a better copy available to the NFL.
I would not recommend this set for anyone.
Super Bowls 13 and 14 are a bit better quality and of course Super bowl 40 is perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars MORE MORE MORE! December 8, 2008
Verified Purchase
Despite some quality issues (which are apparantly unavoidably when dealing with NFL archive VIDEO footage)these dvd's are a must buy for anyone interested in the NFL and NFL History. Though it is a shame that Superbowl 10 isn't clearer, I still had no problem seeing and feeling the intensity of the Steelers knocking the snot out of Roger Staubach. We don't need music and John Facenda and slow motion any more. THIS IS THE FUTURE OF NFL DVD SALES ! WARNER BROTHERS, RELEASE SETS LIKE THE BEARS SET (which I also own) The Bears set has 12 discs. 12 games from the '85 season. IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE IN THE OFF-SEASON, A STARVING STEELER FAN COULD JUST GO TO AMAZON.COM AND BUY THE COMPLETE 1975 STELLERS SEASON. TWELVE (or more)OF THE BEST GAMES OF THE YEAR, INCLUDING THE PLAYOFFS. IMAGINE THAT. 1978. 1979. HE COULD JUST SIT BACK AND WATCH THEM ONE A WEEK THROUGH FEBRUARY AND MARCH AND APRIL. OR GO WILD AND WATCH THEM ALL AT ONCE ON 12 TELEVISIONS! IT WOULD BE A BEAUTIFUL THING. (I am welling up with tears just thinking about the possibilities) My point is this. Quality be damned. I don't care how fuzzy some things are. I want it all to be dvd-ized so that we can have this stuff now before it disintegrates any further. By the way, someone call ABC and tell them to release seasons of Monday Night Football because ABC seems to have taken better care of their tapes than CBS. NBC is fair. Warner Brothers, get to work immediately. Start with the 1981 49ers, and continue from there.
