Not Bad; Not Perfect

"If you're wondering what you get with this DVD, allow me to fill you in. It's the game, just the game, and nothing but the game. There is no pregame, halftime, or postgame. The other question you might have is probably whether it is edited or not. Good news and bad news here. It is edited, but it isn't as bad as the quick replay games on the NFL Network.
What they have taken out are the fades into and out of commercials, any promos read during the game, and time spent marking off penalties. I can live with all that. What I don't like is that there are a couple of instances where they do jump from one play to the next. There aren't many of these, but there are a couple (Montgomery's long run in the second quarter jumps right to the next play - Jaw's TD pass nullified by a penalty). One other complaint that I have is that there are a couple of penalties that go unexplained. You know there was a flag, but because they don't show the mark-off, we don't know what the penalty was.
The presentation is far from perfect, but I'm glad they gave us this much. The video and audio are fine (Pat Summerall & Tom Brookshire on the call). For the most part, the game does flow like the original broadcast. Just be forewarned that there are a couple of nasty edits that bring it in at just over 2 hours."

"I loved this video. I love 60's, 70's, and 80's football. This was a time when the game was at it's finest. I'm a loyal and true Dallas Cowboys fan. One of the only things that I didn't like about the video was watching them lose the game. That was the first of 3 NFC Championship games that they lost in a row. I needed to see how it happend and now I have. The only other knock is that it doesn't show the halftime or post-game show. What it does do is show to every play and the commentary from Summeral and Brookshire is top notch. I wish they would release more full game footage such as this. If you are a real football fan, this is a great buy!"
Excellent condition after 28 years

"This copy is in excellent shape. I remember watching this game more than 28 years ago and as a Cowboys fan, it wasn't a very good game for us, but for the Eagles, well, this is one of their greatest moments. The prevailing winds keep the Eagles passing game from being effective, but it don't matter since Wilbert Montgomery has one of his best games as a pro. What can I say other than I baught it for some research and some old nostalgia. Anyways, great condition. The clarity is superb for being 28 years old."
