Editorial Reviews

For more than three quarters of a century, the Washington Redskins have thrilled fans in the nation's capital with some of the biggest stars and greatest games in NFL history. Their rich saga is now told like never before in this comprehensive look back at the larger-than-life personalities and magic moments of Redskins football.It's all here in this two-disc collection: flamboyant owner George Preston Marshall, whose on-field innovations opened the passing game for Sammy Baugh, the league's first superstar quarterback. Relive the best plays by Washington legends such as Bones Taylor, Gene Brito, Eddie LeBaron and Dickie James - and the thrilling offensive firepower of Sonny Jurgensen, Bobby Mitchell and Charley Taylor. Go behind the scenes as George Allen and the "Over the Hill Gang" bring winning football back to D.C. Then thrill to the Redskins' golden age as Joe Gibbs guides Washington to three Super Bowl triumphs with three different quarterbacks. Modern day stars are also featured, including Darrell Green, Stephen Davis, Brian Mitchell and Clinton Portis.Chock full of eyewitness interviews, never-before-seen footage and rediscovered sideline sound, the Redskins Complete History is a dream come true for every D.C. football fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hail to the Redskins! October 14, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, being from Chicago naturally I am a Bears fan; however, I am a football fan first and I must say that I loved the "History of the Washington Redskins". The 1st disc is very comprehensive, detailing the history of the Redskins and atmosphere of the Washington, DC area in the 50's and 60's and some good insight on the racism of the times, (the owner refused to have Black men on his team, in fact, the Redskins were the last team to have Black men on their roster). The 2nd disc has interviews with prominent Redskin players, Theismann and particularly one of my all time favorite backs Mr. John Riggins!

This is a great dvd set of the Washington Redskins! Now, if NFL Networks would only produce the Minnesota Vikings, the Houston Oilers, the Buffalo Bills and the San Diego Chargers "History of", I would be in football heaven!!

Great item! Go buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hog Heaven February 13, 2006
Format:DVD
This set includes three documentaries, one each on the '82, '87 and '91 seasons, when the Redskins won their three Super Bowls.

The first part of each documentary deals with regular season play, and features all 28 teams (pre-expansion), with no particular focus on the Redskins until the playoffs. There is particularly good coverage of the '86 Saints, '91 Falcons and the '82 and '91 Cowboys. The best and slickest presentation is reserved for the '91 season.

Highlights:
- Tremendous Cowboy sack on Joe Theismann from the '82 season.

- Darrell Green returning a punt for a touchdown in an NFC playoff against Chicago in a freezing Soldier Field. Walter Payton's last game.

- Second Quarter of Superbowl XXII, of course, when the Redskins score 35 unanswered points.

- The Lions' Barry Sanders scoring a classic TD against the Cowboys in an NFC playoff game.

- Great blocking and tackling throughout from the Redskins. See (and hear) the great Jim Kelly get manhandled and mauled in Super Bowl XXVII.

- Short ten-minute film about NFL legend Coach Joe Gibbs, the man who changed the NFC East. According to the late Will McDonough, when Bill Parcels became head coach for the New York Giants he decided to increase the size of his linemen in direct response to what Gibbs was doing in Washington. Later Dallas did the same thing, as they also had to face Washington at least twice a year. These 300 plus pound linemen helped the NFC East win eight (and counting) Super Bowls since 1983.

Lowlights (minor quibbles):

- Warning to New York fans: the Giants are probably the least visible team in this DVD set. This is strange considering they were defending Super Bowl champions in the '87 and '91 seasons.

this collection is too old and boring being a lifelong redskins fan I purchased this title and another with the super bowl rings on cover, by far the dvd with the rings more closely followed the redskin glory years and had great commentary by those teams players. FORGET this dvd it showcases other teams in playoffs while the other hails to the redskins! New note the other dvd that is far more superior is NFL: Americas game Washington Redskins also purchased on amazon, enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Skinz Rule!!! March 15, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent DVD for those who like to reminisce the glory days. Only thing I didn't like about the DVD set is that I felt there weren't enough highlights from the game nor the season. They should show more highlights from each Redskins' game of the season. Perhaps one day they should release a Superbowl series with the entire Superbowl game (from start to finish) in it, instead of just highlights.

Format:DVD
NFL SUPER BOWL COLLECTION - WASHINGTON REDSKINS assembles three NFL Films documentaries, each detailing a NFL season which ultimately led to a Redskin Super Bowl victory. This is a must-have for Redskin fans. The years since the last Super Bowl appearance may have been barren, but that only makes these memories sweeter.

All three documentaries have the same structure. Each runs an hour. The first half details the entire season as a whole. Most of the notable teams of that year are given at least a mention and the compelling story-lines are given plenty of discussion. As the season and playoffs progress, teams fall by the wayside, leaving us with only two.

The second half of each documentary is focused solely on that season's Super Bowl with most important plays and stories described in typical NFL Films style. If you've ever watched ESPN at an odd time of day, you'll almost sure to have seen an NFL Films production of this kind. You know the sort of thing: grainy film of a pig-skin flying through the air in a perfect spiral; slow motion, low angle footage of players taking the field; John Facenda speaking in reverential tones of the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field.

In addition to the Super Bowl seasons, there are four mini-documentaries ranging in length from four and a half to nine minutes each. "The Fun Bunch" looks at the style of touchdown celebration used by Redskin players in the days before the No Fun League really began to crack down on the display of any human emotion. "John Riggins" and "Doug Williams" document the careers of those two star athletes with the latter focusing on the history of Williams being the first black quarterback to start in a Super Bowl.
