4.0 out of 5 stars QUALITY...EXCELLENT. COMPLETE?..NOT EXACTLY February 6, 2009
By E.C.
Well, the visual quality that is available on this DVD set is second to none (out of everything that has been available so far). It is very clear. Now, these sets do contain every play in these three Super Bowls (including the false start opening kickoff of Super Bowl XXVI). The footage is the same footage as the original TV broadcasts, along with commentary by the original TV game announcers. These are the strengths of the set.

The only weakness that I perceive that this set has is that the games are still somewhat edited. Some of the action between plays is edited out. So, you may see the end of a punt play, and then it might immediately cut to the next team's quarterback taking the snap, for example. So, a lot of times things that will be missing are the players going into and out of the huddle, coming onto the field, etc. In Super Bowl 26, for example, they almost completely cut out a touchdown celebration by Gerald Riggs. I imagine that for a few people, 'cutting to the chase' in this way may be preferred, but for me, these edits create a slightly artificial feel to the games on these DVDs. This is because I consider the things that were cut out to be a part of watching a football game, such as touchdown celebrations. I think it would have been better if NFL Films had released the whole game EXACTLY as broadcast on TV, except without the commercials (of course). At any rate, NFL Films should have left that stuff in, to allow you as the viewer to decide what is important enough to want to watch; if it's on the DVD, you can always fast-forward it if you don't want to watch it. But if it's not there to begin with, then you don't even have the option of watching it. If you want the whole, uncut games, you're going to have to look elsewhere.

For having the great visual quality, and every play, but also due to the edits, I give this collection Four Stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is What It Is... November 12, 2008
Verified Purchase
Let's be 100% clear about what this is: the 3 Super Bowl games in this set are simply the TV broadcasts of the games, as they were presented at the times (1983, 1988, 1992). No window dressing, no sugar-coating, no bells, and no whistles. While it would've been (very) nice to have included SOME highlights (or even brief mentions) of the playoff games to led up to each Super Bowl game, and definitely better to have the RADIO audio (Sonny, Sam, & Frank) versus the TV commentators, it's still a triumph to FINALLY have a copy of the Super Bowl games themselves, esp. for myself, not having a VCR back in 1983.

I hope (against hope) NFL Films will see fit to go back and retrieve the radio commentary for these games (NFLF does include snippets of radio play-by-play in every other Redskins' DVD highlight set they sell). This set is for WS fans, and I'd much rather hear the voices of my "homer" radio announcers than "objective" TV heads. Makes me ever thankful I did manage to record (VHS) the 1992 Super Bowl with both the television AND radio commentary!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbowl victories not the 1982 post-season July 6, 2008
Verified Purchase
This set will include the 3 Super Bowls won by the Washington Redskins and NOT the 1982 playoff games implied by the Amazon listing. The games included are:

*Super Bowl XVII - the Redskins defeated the Miami Dolphins, 27-17, for their first NFL title since 1942.

*Super Bowl XXII - by scoring 42 unanswered points, the Redskins defeated the Denver Broncos, 42-10, for their second Super Bowl victory.

*Super Bowl XXVI - Washington won its final Super Bowl title under Coach Joe Gibbs by defeating the Buffalo Bills, 37-24.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to relive the Glory Days January 8, 2013
Verified Purchase
This DVD is exactly what it's described as - network broadcasts of the 3 Super Bowl victories of the Washington Redskins. I know other reviewers want other games included as the "Greatest", and I think the 1982 NFC Championship victory over the Cowboys is one of the greatest, but these are the Super Bowl victories. If winning the World Championship isn't the greatest, then what is? No need to rate down this set because it doesn't include such-and-such game. For what it advertises, this DVD set delivers. Audio and video quality are what should be expected, and while the games are slightly edited, I didn't feel that it took away from the games at all. Pregame player introductions were still there, and there was a little postgame footage as well. I'd searched in vain for Super Bowl XVII, and this is by far the best one around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for the Die-Hard Skins fan March 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a great little set. The original broadcasts of all 3 Redskins superbowl victories. You get the FULL TV broadcast, minus the garbage halftime entertainment. As other's have said though, that's it. There is no additional commentary or analysis, and the quality is what it is. This is especially noticeable in the '83 superbowl broadcast. But for the price, I ain't complaining. It's really cool to watch these, especially for you young bucks who are way too young to remember a time when the Redskins were actually good (and often dominant), and well-respected. And you can't beat a game called by Madden and Summerall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great NFL game recordings March 9, 2010
By Vickie
Verified Purchase
This is a great product, and I'm so glad someone has taken the time and effort to make them available. I totally enjoyed revisiting these games from a more innocent time, when players were honest men and pro football was more fun. The packaging is well done, and all three discs played well, with the quality limited only by the timeframe and technology (The quality is actually great when you consider the recording technology of the time and the fact that I'm watching them blown up on a 50" plazma TV.) Total enjoyment and no problems.

What are these?
According to the back of the dvd it's supposed to be the entire network broadcasts of all 3 SuperBowl games. The dvd of the highlights of the Redskins SuperBowls came out in 2005 and was called Super Bowl Champions Collector's Series. I hope that answered your question.
