"Not much of a football fan myself (although I'll watch a good rivalry), but darn if I didn't catch myself watching the top 20 Countdown of the America's Game series a couple years back (the back stories and personality profiles are great).
NFL Network counted down the top 20 Super Bowl teams, and the 1985 Chicago Bears was rated #2. Out of the 20 I watched, I'd rank this DVD as #1 in the series (I'd also rank the 85 Bears first). NFL Films does great work, and this DVD shows `em at their best-great music, great video, and the shot (and music) of Walter Payton sitting on the bench by himself with his head in his hands at his last game will tug on your heartstrings!
I'd recommend watching this DVD first, then getting your hands on the Pure Payton DVD (DVD is available only in the book Payton).
Both are highly recommended, even if you aren't a football fan-my 75-year-old mom couldn't care less about football, and she loved it!
If you know someone who's a football and/or Bears fan, this would make a great Christmas gift."
