As a long time fan of the team and their history, I was happy to see first time video on such great players as Pete Pihos, Norm Van Brocklin, Steve Van Buren, Concrete Charlie and such great coaches as Bert Bell, Greasy Neal, Buck Shaw.
The DVD set is complete with additional special features including profiles of Wilbert Montgomery, Reggie White, Veterans Stadium, the Fog Bowl...the list goes on and on.
Do yourself a favor and get this if you are a fan of the team.....if for no other reason, to see some Cowboys QBs getting their heads taken off.
The extra in-depth focus on the greats including Wilbert Montgomery, Leonard Tose, Bert Bell and actually seeing players like Pete Pihos, Norm Van Brocklin, Steve Van Buren, Bucko Kilroy and Tommy McDonald in action make these disks a must for any younger fan who "bleeds Eagle green". Considering the fact that the home base of NFL films is just outside Philadelphia, I doubt that such an expansive library of film is available for any other pro sports franchise. Do yourself a favor a pick up a copy today for hours and hours of E-A-G-L-E-S-Eagles!!
I am a lifelong resident of the Philadelphia area, a "dyed-in-the-green-wool EAGLES fan and a believer in the fact that "good things come to those who wait". This DVD is a "must own" for any true EAGLES fan.
It examines in great depth and detail through the teams history, all the way up until about the end of the Dick Vermeil Era. After that, it just tears though about the next 25 years. There's no mention at all of Marion Campbell taking over the team and very little examination of Norman Breman's disastrous ownership. Both Buddy Ryan and Ray Rhoades seem to only warrant extended footnotes, while Rich Kotite is almost skipped over entirely. At this point I felt that NFL films was trying WAY too hard to start looking at the franchise (and current ownership) through rose-colored glasses.
Granted, in the grand scheme of their history, this is probably just a small piece. I'm twenty-eight though; these are the years I remember best. It was disappointing that this part of the team's history was so abbreviated.
In all though, there's just a treasure chest of material here that I had a blast pouring over. I can't possibly not recommend it, it just loses a star for such a quick wrap-up.
