"As a life-long Niner fan who went to his first game 1975, I had high hopes for the DVD set but unfortunately my worst fears came true. Nearly 95% of the DVD dealt with the 1980's and 90s and very little before then.
Don't get me wrong, I love the Glory Years of the 80'2 and 90's (I went to so many of those great games). Still, something must be said about the players prior to the 1980s who played so hard during the tough times.
BEST PARTS - Bill Walsh's coaching clinic on passing. Having Bill Walsh teach you about passing is like Mozart teaching you how to write an opera. Great, insightful stuff!
Another must-see if the 50-minute documentary on Michael Zagaris whose journey took him from taking pictures at Kezar Stadium, working for RKF in '68, hanging out with rock stars to being the 49ers' offical team photograher.
WORST PART - They actually have a seperate segment on T.O. and not one on far more worthy subjects like John Brodie, Gene Washington, Cedrick Hardman, Tommy Hart, Paul Hoffer, Bill Ring nor JNimmy Johnson and Dave Wilcox, both memebers of the Hall of Fame. I would rather see classic clips from those who paved the way and paid the price than B.O., I mean, T.O.
In short, it is a history of the 49ers, just no thte complete history."
Bill Walsh was THE master.

"Growing up here in So Cal, I was a huge L.A. Rams fan during the 80's, so I knew first hand how great Montana was. He always took out my team. After watching the bit on Quarterbacking, by Bill Walsh, I realize now why they were so good, and we, along with the rest of the league, were not. Everything, from the foot work, to the placement of the ball so the reciever could catch it in stride. I would recomend any high school QB to watch this, there is so much to learn. As for the rest, they include the NFL Game of the Week for Super Bowl 16. Not the John Facenda Super Bowl highlight, but the 23 minute one with Harry Kalas. That, along with the 'The Catch' makes this DVD a must have.

Jerry Rice? Steve Young?

"How can you have a "Complete History" of the Forty Niners with special sections on Terrell Owens and Jeff Garcia and then leave out Jerry Rice and Steve Young? Let me know when Jeff Garcia gets into the hall of fame, and don't even bother telling me about T.O."
Really good indeed but...

"Where is the special content about Jerry Rice?
And the other Greits? Where are they?
But I must admit the 49ers would deserve at least a 4 DVDs package to make justice of their history!"
