NFL Films does it again

"Steve Sabol is head of NFL Films and over the years, he has put together some incredible documentaries. But I think NFL Films' series America's Game, which debuted on NFL Network last year, could be the best thing they've ever done.

Each set recounts the story behind each team's championship season. In this case, the set collects the America's Game docs for the 1986 and 1990 New York Giants. Each documentary is narrated (the '86 documentary is done by Laurence Fishbourne and the '90 documentary is done by Alec Baldwin) and features insight from three integral coaches and players. Head Coach Bill Parcells, QB Phil Simms, and LB Lawrence Taylor are interviewed for the '86 season. The '90 season features QB Jeff Hostetler, LB Carl Banks, and RB Ottis Anderson.

These documentaries bring such insight into the runs these teams made. It's amazing how tight and yet oddly dysfunctional the Giants were under Parcells. The relationship between Simms and Parcells was rocky at first, but they both describe how close they became. The '90 Giants story is equally compelling, with how Hostetler filling in for the injured Simms. Carl Banks is particularly great here.

There also some great extras, mostly short documentaries made by NFL Films. The standout is a ten minute segment on legendary Giants TE Mark Bavaro.

Any Giants fan owes himself this set. A fan of the New York Football Giants must own this set. There's no excuse for not owning it."
Reliving the Past in Style

"The America's Game: NY Giants 2-DVD set is a definite must-have for Giants fans. I have (and still enjoy) the VHS copies of "Giants among Men" from the 1986 season and "True Blue" from the 1990 season. While they give a game-by-game replay of those seasons, the America's Game set goes into the personalities, the challenges, and the triumps of some of the key players on those teams. The AG series is a celebration of the humanity of the players who are encased in so many layers of padding, we do not experience the personal highs and lows they go through - not only within the game, but with each other on and off the field. Steve Sabol has rectified this with an excellent new approach to the game, its players and coaches. Parcells, Simms, LT, Hoss, OJ and more are there to add a very personal touch to the 86 and 90 seasons. You won't regret buying this DVD set"

"Great stuff here, rekindling the memories and loving it, lots of indepth looks and interviews with some of the GIANTS GREATS with plenty of highlight films and raw footage of the players and coaches during the seasons of 86 and 90. If your a Diehard fan and bleed TRUE BLUE, then this a must for your collection."

"I have watched many shows on the Giants past Super Bowls but these two DVD's showed clips that I had never seen before. Alot of behind the scenes (locker room) conversations that were fun to watch. I would recommend this DVD highly."
