Disappointing release from Warner
G. W. | Pittsburgh, PA | 10/19/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)
"This was a highly anticipated release seeing how Warner was releasing 5 Steeler Super Bowls complete and uncut. First of all, the games are not complete. To speed up the game they cut a lot of the in between play commentary and sideline camera work. Maybe a small detail to some, but I see it as false advertisement. Second of all, the quality on these is downright shameful. I have recorded better quality from VHS of televised programs from the late 70's than these. It looks as if they transferred the games from a really bad VHS recording. Don't be fooled by the pristine crystal clear pictures of the various games on the DVD cover and back because what you get inside on the discs is horrible. Even the 5th superbowl quality is not what you would expect from something that was just recording in 2005. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. I watched these games when they originally aired and the quality of the games back then wasn't that bad. Don't get me wrong, I understand about deterioration of film over time, but these are ridiculous. If you are a die hard Steeler fan like myself then these recordings might be of interest, otherwise I would highly recommend saving your money and look on Ebay or for someone that might have the original recorded games which I am sure will have better quality than this. Warner definitely dropped the ball on this release. Too bad. Definitely not worth the money."
NFL films finally puts these out!

"OK, I've had these games on VHS tapes for years. I bought this set seeking better quality which I did not get. I thought SB's 9 and 10 were fair at best. I thought my VHS copy of SB 10 was better quality than the one in this set. SB's 13 and 14 were good, but not great. Actually SB 9 and 14 were basically the same copy quality I already had. SB 40 was excellent quality which it should be being the newest.
If you don't already own pirated VHS copies already, you should buy these.
If you are like me already owning copies of these and looking for better quality, you're not gonna get it.
Also, why do teams like the Giants and Cowboys have more games than the Steelers, Raiders and 49ers? Ok this was released before SB 43, I understand. But, the Steelers have had many other great games besides the Super Bowls. What about the 1995 AFC Championship game? The immaculate reception game (which i'm not sure exists). The 1975 AFC Championship game vs oakland? The 1978 and 1979 AFC Championship games? How about the 1979 regular season overtime wins vs the Browns? 1989 wildcard win vs Houston. 1984 upset of 49ers and playoff upset of Denver? Just suggestions.OK I know they're are the 2005 and 2008 SB playoff sets."
Where did they get the source for these games

"Like a previous review indicated - the quality of these games are below standard - there has to be better quality footage in the network vaults - these look like they were copied from a bootlegged VHS tape instead of the network source tape -- having said that -- it's still a great piece of history
What was NFL Films thinking?

"Let me start by saying I am not a Steelers fan. Unfortunately, my Cowboys are on two of these discs, and I love a chance to watch Roger, the original T.D. and Hollywood. I pray... that the Dallas Cowboys set is NOWHERE near the quality these games are. I've found multiple versions of these games on the internet that put these "digitally mastered" copies to complete shame. Super Bowl X is almost unwatchable and Super Bowl IX? Oofa... The unfortunate thing is, this was a chance to 'get it right' and the NFL blew it big. I rated it one star only because I wasn't sure if ZERO stars would register a review here. Don't waste your money. Go find the games on the internet somewhere."
