Colts: The Complete History is a tale of two cities. The first disc is a 65-minute history of the team in Baltimore, from its woeful start in the 1950s to the building of a powerhouse led by coach Weeb Ewbank, Alan Ameche, and ninth-round draft pick Johnny Unitas. They went on to the 1958 championship, later dubbed "the greatest game ever played," and were embraced by the blue-collar town. Later years included Super Bowl III under new coach Don Shula, the last-minute thrills of Super Bowl V, Joe Thomas's subsequent dismantling of the team that led to Unitas' final game in Baltimore, the dawning of the Bert Jones and Ted Marchibroda era, and, on March 28, 1984, the Mayflower vans that departed for Indianapolis. Among the interviewees are WR Raymond Berry, DT Art Donovan, DE Gino Marchetti, coach Don Shula, RB Lenny Moore, and executive Ernie Accorsi. Filling out disc 1 are 54 minutes of featurettes and an hourlong "Greatest Games" spotlight on the 1958 championship.

The 45-minute history on disc 2 focuses on the Colts' 1984 welcome to Indianapolis and the subsequent development of the team. Again starting with some lean years, the Colts traded for Eric Dickerson and drafted Jeff George, Steve Emtman, and Marshall Faulk. After a run to the 1995 AFC Championship game, the arrival of superstars Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison, and Edgerrin James as well as coach Tony Dungy helped the Colts battle the Steelers in the January 2006 playoffs. Interviewees include Marchibroda, Jim Harbaugh, and Jim Irsay, the son of the team's late owner, Robert Irsay, but none of the current players. The 140 minutes of bonus features include the 2003 "Monday Night Miracle" when Dungy returned to Tampa Bay, the 2005 Game of the Week in which Manning and Harrison made history, an interview with Manning, and shorter pieces on coach Jim Mora (discussing his infamous meltdowns), and Dwight Freeney. --David Horiuchi

The first dvd is fantastic. It covers the history of the BALTIMORE Colts (1953-1983) and should be seen by every football fan. This dvd really shows what the Colts meant to that city, and what a great team they were. By the way, dont miss the extras: they alone are worth the cost of the dvds. In these extras there are excellent bios of the great Colts: Unitas, Berry, Curtis, Mackey, etc., plus a very well done story of the 1967 Colts, who were one of the greatest teams not to make the playoffs, and the 1958 NFL Championship in its entirety, which I think is the best NFL Films presentation of all time, and that's saying something.

The second dvd is very good too, covering the history of the INDIANAPOLIS Colts. Its extras are good too: including the Monday Night Miracle comeback and bios of Manning, Mora and others. I liked it very much, but Baltimore fans can be forgiven for using this second dvd as a drink coaster.

Being Baltimore Born and Baltimore Bred, I can not claim any positive feelings toward the Indianapolis Colts. But my love for the Baltimore Colts continues. I was a little gunshy getting this DVD because I was afraid it would be too Indy based. But NFL Films did a wonderful job of separating the Colt eras. The 65 minute profile of the Baltimore Colts is fantastic. But what makes it even better are the special features, including the OUTSTANDING NFL Films profile on the '58 Championship Game. I will cherish the Baltimore DVD for the rest of my life. The Indy DVD is in the hands of a co-worker who likes the Irsay Colts (that still hurts), so we are both winners.

This was a great Christmas gift for my wife. I am from Chicago but we live in Baltimore. She remembers how they sold stock to the common man to get the Colts here in the first place. We both lament how Irsay snuck them out of town. They were heroes on and off the field. Locals still tell stories about the generosity and compassion of Johnny Unitas and others.

Let me start by saying that I've been a Colts fan since the 1960's when I first became aware of pro football. I'll also add another interesting point. I'm from Indiana. Yep, that's right, and I was a huge Colts / Johnny U fan, and still am for that matter. Now, I think you know where this is headed. I thoroughly enjoyed the Baltimore Colts history. I love the perspective of the players from those great Colts teams. So I recommend this package for that disc alone, if you don't care for the Indy teams.

But, as offensive as this will sound to some old Baltimore Colts fans, I'm going to say it anyway. I also enjoyed the history of the Indianapolis Colts, and would also recommend this package based on that disc too. I still love the Colts and the Peyton Manning era. Those Colts teams also accomplished some great things. I'm also pleased that the Colts picked up Andrew Luck and look forward to amazing things from him.

So the bottom line is this: While I enjoyed the history of the Baltimore Colts more, I still recommend this package for the Baltimore, as well as the Indianapolis Colts. Get the package, sit back and enjoy it. You'll love the history of these two eras of Colts history. And you can't beat the price!

Whether you like the Baltimore Colts or the Indianapolis Colts, you'll love this 2 disc set. It includes the 1958 NFL Championship game and many of the great players of the 1960s era of the Colts. (Johnny Unitas, Jimmy Orr, Lenny Moore, Raymond Berry) The Colts are on the rise again thanks to Jim Irsay (Robert Irsay's son). Robert Irsay who moved the team from Baltimore on March 29, 1984 is not well liked in Baltimore for his actions but Maryland should have built a state of the art stadium to replace the aging Memorial Stadium. The newly relocated Cleveland Browns tried in 1995 to get the Colts name etc. back to Baltimore for the new team. But the name Ravens was chosen instead. The new era of the Colts took shape with Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison and Dallas Clark.The Colts name and history should have stayed in Baltimore due to Pimlico but that's life! Let's go you Colts!

I enjoyed this 2-disk set a lot. It's a very thorough and accurate history of the Colts, beginning with the origins of the team and taking us right up through the Peyton Manning era and the move to Indianapolis. I was a little disappointed that this history was compiled before the Colts won their superbowl a few years ago, but I'm sure that will be included in future histories.

If you're a fan of the Colts then you'll definitely want to watch this video.

I am a football fan, and I'm not a Colt hater and figured I'd check it out. I have to say I liked the Baltimore part more than the Indianapolis. Baltimore would get a grade of A and Indianapolis a grade of C+. But, if you're a Colt fan you'll probably love it from start to finish.

A must have for any Colts fan. I've really enjoyed seeing the history of my beloved Colts and will find myself watching these for years to come. Love the old footage from game films from before I was even born.
