Editorial Reviews

On February 1, 2009, the Pittsburgh Steelers became the first franchise in NFL history to win their sixth Super Bowl. The title was the Steelers second in four seasons. It was the first under second-year head coach Mike Tomlin. Led by a defense that ranked first in yards allowed per game (237.2), passing yards allowed per game (156.9), points allowed per game (13.9) and second in rushing yards allowed per game (80.3), the Steelers finished the regular season 12-4 to win the AFC North Division title. After defeating San Diego and Baltimore in the AFC playoffs, Pittsburgh culminated its championship run with a victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII. Relive all the thrilling moments of the 2008 Steelers, from Opening Day right through Super Bowl XLIII. NFL Films tells their story with action highlights and exclusive sideline and locker room sound from Pittsburgh’s record-setting season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Know what you're buying! February 9, 2009
Format:DVD
I've seen several of these from NFL Films, and they're always wonderfully done. This is basically a yearbook of the Steelers' 2008 season -- a "Season Review" which contains highlights of all the Steelers' games, including the Super Bowl. It also contains various extras. It definitely does not include the complete Super Bowl. If you're looking for a review of the season, this is your purchase. If you're looking for Super Bowl XLIII on DVD/BluRay, I'm pretty certain they'll be releasing that before too long as well. Just want to make sure no one is disappointed!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Rush Job? February 24, 2009
Format:DVD
As a Steelers fan, I could not wait for this DVD to be released. And as someone who always enjoys a good NFL Films Production, I assumed this DVD would be just as good, if not better, than the Super Bowl XL release outlining the 2005/2006 Steelers season.
Unfortunately, I feel NFL Films fell short with this DVD and that they rushed this into production. They missed the mark somewhere and made the season seem somewhat dull. (Something we all know was NOT the case!)
SPOILER ALERT: The 2 minute clip viewable on Amazon is not even in the DVD . . .odd.
Of course, this review is not meant to deter any of you from purchasing this DVD. Nor, is it meant to downplay the amazing season the Steelers played. The bonus material is enjoyable to watch and any fan will be happy to add this to their collection. But once again, a bit of a disappointment in comparison to the Super Bowl XL DVD.
As a reminder, this DVD does NOT contain the Super Bowl XLIII game. This is merely a collection of clips from the 2008/2009 season.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any Steelers fan. March 6, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a must purchase for any Steelers fan.

It's important to know that this is not the actual Superbowl, but rather the highlights of the Steelers journey there, ending up with that historic Superbowl win.

If you're a fan, it's a great treat to relive the fantastic season capped off with one of the greatest catches in the history of the game.

The Blu-Ray looks awesome, and is a visible difference over the standard definition version.

The extras are:

The entire 4th quarter (in HD) of the Cowboys/Steelers week 14 game.
Post-game Superbowl highlights
Media day highlights
Willie Parker profile
Ben Roethlisberger: Captain Comeback
Mike Tomlin profile
Dick Lebeau profile

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars for the Steelers - 3 Stars for the DVD March 4, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As a long-time Steelers fan, this DVD was a must buy and I'm happy I did it. Superbowl XLIII is a game I could watch over and over to see the great plays both by the Steelers like Harrison's record interception+return and Santonio Holmes' spectacular series of catches on the last offensive drive, as well as the great almost-comback by the Cardinals, a team that got no respect during the regular season and had to earn it the hard way in the postseason.

My problem with the DVD is that unlike many of the NFL's productions this one has no heart, no stortelling, no reason to care, presented in the program. This DVD gives you a striaght-up prestantion of the games with all the wit and charm of a statistician. If you want to see great sports storytelling and human drama played out on the gridiron, check out the NFL Super Bowl XL - Pittsburgh Steelers Championship DVD. It starts off just right with the emotionally honest speech by Hines Ward regarding the possible retirement of Jerome Bettis. Great stuff. The closest this program gets is the exchange between Ward and Limas Sweed on the sidelines - good stuff but there were MANY great storylines that are completely ignored.

Here's jsut a few that jump to mind!
The injury to longtime backup Charlie Batch that led to Byron Leftwich stepping up to help play strong.
The emphasis on discipline in training camp that got Casey "Big Snack" Hampton some press before the season started.
The long road and perseverance of James Harrison who made Defensive player of the Year (a fact BARELY mentioned on the DVD).
Hines Ward's drive to play in the Superbowl despite a knee injury two weeks earlier against Baltimore.

3.0 out of 5 stars whoa.....before you get too excited... February 3, 2009
By T.
Format:DVD
one of the greatest games ever. This is even going to be available on Blu-Ray.
But from what i've heard and read, this DVD DOES NOT include the entire game uncut. This is only highlights and stories. I've already heard a mention of watching "the complete game". I don't believe you're going to get it here. Just as the '05 was released as highlights and such and they finally released the whole game w/the other 3 playoff games as a 4-disc set.
I will most likely NOT buy this...i will wait for the complete game being released (with the playoff games)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Entire Season... Naturally March 5, 2009
Format:DVD
Why are Steeler fans so surprised that this is a season highlight DVD? Just 3 years ago NFL Films did the same thing: released the highlight DVD shortly after Super Bowl XL and released the entire set of playoff games later in the year. The Super Bowl XL DVD was amazing - this one falls slightly short of that, but it's definitely worth a buy for any Steeler fan. Relax, you'll get your entire Super Bowl XLIII later this year... but what NFL Films does here is to try and tell the story of the 2008 Steelers like a movie. The Super Bowl win is even more amazing in the context of the season that led up to it.
Oh, and the two minute clip featured above, it is in the DVD, it's just been recut. The version you see up there is probably from a rough cut, which is normal in video and film editing. They punched up the narration a bit and used some different angles in the final cut, but the clip gives you a good sense of the DVD.

is this the actual superbowl? or highlights.
I'm not sure myself. It sounds like we get the 4th quarter of the Dallas game in its entirety, but the rest sounds like highlights of the regular and post-season, including the Super Bowl. I just want a Blu-ray version of the Super Bowl like they released for Super Bowl XL.
