IT was a huge achievement when the JETS brought down the NFL and the mighty COLTS and changed that league forever.
That Game is well documented on Disc 2 as well as in a special feature on disc two that's a half hour seasonal highlight reel. Disc one has the history of the team and a generous section on Joe and his band of underdog champions....and it was terrific. At a generous 340+ Minutes this is a very good value and watching that old AFL action is priceless...I grew up watching that era and seeing those old Chargers and Chief teams.....wow..what a rush of nostalgia...
Nice interview footage as well..
real solid package and I'm sure lifelong Jets fans ....particularly those in NEW YORK will treasure this collection of films!
The DVD also contains the one hour Super Bowl 3 highlight video that gives the viewer a fairly complete overview of te entire game. This DVD set is a must for any Jets fan.
Quite a bit of attention is given to Joe Namath, what makes him tick, his legacy, etc. Attention is also given to the historical significance of Super Bowl III and how it changed pro football forever. The first few Super Bowls had the NFL champions competing against the AFL champions. As a result of the Jets' victory over the Colts in Super Bowl III, all ten of the AFL teams were absorbed into the NFL, thus creating the American Football Conference (AFC) that we know today. The Jets' win in the Super Bowl showed that an AFL team could defeat an NFL team and that the AFL was not an inferior football league to the NFL.Read more ›
You wouldn't instinctively choose a team who's had only 1 classic team a decade to be the basis of an in-depth DVD retrospective but it is a testament to the passion with which Jets fans follow their beloved green & white that this is exactly what NFL Films have done.
As would be expected the production values and game footage are second to none and although the material is overly weighted towards the 1969 Superbowl win I still managed to learn quite a few new tidbits from the other features on offer here.
The only slightly disconcerting thing is that the makers seem to have decided that witnessing a loss by their team would be too much for the average Jet fan so season reviews and team retrospectives tend to end with the last Jet win rather than showing you the loss that put them out of playoff contention. This feels a little strange, especially when you aren't even shown touchdowns that other teams score for fear it may damage your fragile sensibilities.
Having said this I thoroughly enjoyed viewing all the material on hand and as a document of the Jets soaring highs and sweeping lows to date it certainly ticks all the boxes.
J E T S, Jets, Jets, Jets!
They are alive and well here in full form. From the early days of the New York Titans to Richard Todd, Dennis Byrd, The Sack Exchange and Kenny O'Brien, to the not so great days of early 90's and this DVD truly lets you re-live the moments and for some live them for the very first time. I never imagined so many great and heartbreaking moments existed.
A must have for Jets fans young and old alike.
