Avid Patriots fans will snap this one up i'm sure. I enjoyed it, but was left feeling a little short-changed. I'm a lifelong fan of the team and it was fantastic to see the first half hour of this DVD. The old footage of Gino and Babe Parilli etc, playing before all those empty seats at Fenway in the days of the Boston Patriots. Priceless. It's great to see this rare old footage, and its the reason i wanted to buy this DVD as soon as it came out. Unfortunately this was the only real highlight of the whole DVD. Where this DVD falls short for me is the brief run-through the 70's and 80's. These were very poor years for the team, with the exception of '76, '78 and '85. I will grant NFL films allowance for that. However, remember that this is what the team was. Poor! A bunch of no-hope failures. It was still our team, and we loved them regardless. The 85 season is not covered in too much detail, which is a shame as for most fans in their 30's and '40's like me, this was a legendary season to remember. The only time the pats looked halfway decent in their history. This wild card on the road victory procession to the Super Bowl was only given a short look. Why? And where is the profile of great Pats legends and Pro Bowlers from this era, like John Hannah, Steve Nelson, Steve Grogan, Andre Tippet etc. ? Because they didn't win a Super Bowl does that make them ineligible to be on this DVD?

Then we get on to another fairly brief look at the Parcells era, 96 and our second Super Bowl failure, then it's all Belichick era for the remainder of the DVD. Of course its great to see the Super Bowl wins again, but if you own any other Pats DVDs, it's nearly all stuff you've seen a hundred times before, and nothing new that you don't have at home already.

I'm a 23 year old Pats fan and have really only been around during the Brady and Bledsoe eras. I found this DVD to be very interesting and I learned a lot that I didn't know before. It spends a good amount of time in each era in the Pats history, going through each decade and the biggest moments. Some of the reviews complained that it focuses too much on the 2000's, but considering that the Pats won 3 Super Bowls, and made the playoffs 8 times in the decade, more than all other decades combined, it is only fair. Most of the special features are good, but some of them are repeats from the Super Bowl Champion DVD's, such as the bios on Gino and Steve Grogan.

I havn't been around on this earth long enough to witness most of the years of the New England Patriots, but fortunately during my lifetime I'm able to enjoy the greatest era of the team's legacy! It's amazing to think that for many years the Patriots were a team that nobody thought much of but of course now that has all changed but it's GREAT to look back with this DVD set on how the Pats were born & how they've evolved over the years. And by no means does this seem like a quick summary, there is quite a lot of info not only describing the many seasons, but also a lot of detail to key games & moments, players, coaches, not only explained narratively but also from the lips of the players & personnel themselves! And as a bonus, the second DVD contains several segments regarding Bill Belichick, Teddy Bruschi, Rodney Harrison, history of Foxboro Stadium & The Snow Bowl. For die hard pats fans this is 100% worth every penny!

Overall pleased with this. Could have had a little more time spent on the Parcel's years but still worth the money.

Excellent history of the Patriots. I really enjoyed seeing the films of the old days which reminded me how bad they were when I was growing up. I'm taking a star away because for some unfathomable reason the screen is cropped with black bars on both sides and its not in full screen format. So it looks cheap.

Got this for my brother and he loves it! I actually got these for my family for Christmas last year, purchased the Broncos, Patriots and the Cowboys. All of them were awesome. If you have a football fan at home this is the PERFECT gift!!!

What can you say. This video history of the Patriots is a must have for fans. The length is just right and thorough in depicting the team's history.
