Best Eagles Compilation Ever

"Well, NFL Films has done it again. Their recent anthology on the Philadelphia Eagles History is a must for any fan of the franchise. There's something for every fan, young and old, given they cover the entire reign of the club from their beginnings in 1933 to the demolition of Veterans Stadium.
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.

"This is the best DVD that I now, and will ever, own. The vaults of NFL films have been meticulously scoured to present anything to do with the Eagles franchise. The quality and quantity of the material from the 30-70s is astounding. You really get a feel for how the Eagles became Philadelphia's most beloved franchise.
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 love this DVD set its worth every penny, and I have shared it with friends. I am actually able to re-watch sections because I found it so fascinating. As a history buff and a huge Eagles fan, this was so exciting to me, and it did not disappoint. For those who like the good old days, the history of the team is there. For younger people like me, its a way of discovering your roots. And for current fans, its a way to live some of our favorite plays such as 4th and 26. I also enjoyed some of the special features. I'd like to be able to show my kids the footage of the vet implosion someday, for example. Highly recommended for purchase for the true fan. If you are a casual fan, you might not like it to purchase, but at the price, rent it and decide!"

"I have been an Eagles fan since I was 6 years old in 1963. There was a lot to like but a lot got left out. I particularly was disappointed by the amount of the DVDs that consisted of talking heads, particularly when many of those heads had not worn an Eagles helmet - who buys this to hear Philadelphia media people? I would have preferred much more game action and much more on Eagles personalities. Tim Rossovich, Bill Bradley, Bill Bergey, Tom Dempsey, Harold Jackson, Irving Fryar - never mentioned and barely seen. Herschel Walker's 90/90/90 season - unmentioned but showing those three plays would have taken only about 30 seconds. Too much of DVD 2 is just about the Vet and people who live in South Philly. That's a little tangential to fill up half the set. On the plus side, they do show due respect to Randall's greatest plays, to the Fog Bowl and to the incredible 1991 defense, so there are definitely some choice moments here. On to the Super Bowl in Detroit next year and may the Eagles win it all! I look forward to all Eagles DVD's and may they all get better and better!"
