    It's ridiculously good. I'm only part way into the 2nd DVD - one for each Super Bowl season - but the documentaries are GREAT, the insights you get from off-field stuff is fascinating, the interviews with Brady, AV and Milloy are years after the fact so there's a sense of perspective, especially from Milloy re: his relationship with BB and how much changed since that first Super Bowl. Definitely an affection there still, strained, but with a mature sense of reflection. It's pretty funny, too. (There are different players/coaches that comprise the 3 interviewees for each DVD - Brady, Milloy and AV are on the first disc.)

    The best line so far is on the second DVD in the lead-up to the 2003 season. There's a sideline shot of Belichick during a game in 2002, and he's just at the end of his rope. Something bad has just happened, and he starts walknig up the sideline, totally pissed, and he says, "I'm tellin' you, we SUCK."

    Anyone who may be thinking that this will be redundant if you have the 3GTG and the Super Bowl season DVDs needs to rethink. This is a pretty different thing, a great supplement.

    I've never heard of these DVDs. I have the 3GTG set. Do you get these directly from the NFL network? And what are they called? Thanks.

    Are you talking about America's Game? I saw those on the Network, they are almost as good as the actual Superbowls. Nice buy

    I'm onto the 3rd DVD right now and some of this stuff is phenomenal - they even have the footage of Matt Light catching the punt in T.C. to get the team the night off, funny stuff.

    Disc 2 has F-ing awesome footage/audio of Rodney (as a Patriot and a Charger) hitting, talking smack, hysterical - what a total pain in the ass, but also a real genuine guy. Any opposing fans who hate #37 better get used to him because, if he feels like it, he's going to become one of the best studio/color guys in the business.

    EXTRA STUFF extremely worth it. It's not expensive, and the extras are awesome.

    I'm gonna jump in with everyone else and strongly reccomend it. Excelent Documentry's, good bonus features and a cheap DVD package too. I've already watched all three Seasons in succession, twice. :D

    Seen these shows on NFL Network, great program no matter how much you hate the team they are showcasing.

    Another cool moment from Disc 3 - they show the Pats in the hotel ballroom in Pittsburgh (since they flew in early, they had to do the walkthrough in that space). Some of this footage we've seen before, but not this - they show the walkthrough of the opening play, the end-around to Deion.

    Pretty neat stuff.

    Oh, by the way...

    Disc 1 narrator - Martin Sheen

    Disc 2 narrator - Tom Selleck

    Disc 3 narrator - Laurence Fishburne

    All do a great job, especially Fishburne, IMO.

    i think my favorite moment in the whole series is Belichick's deadpan reading of Philadelphia's Super Bowl parade plans that were published in the paper - this was his pre-SB 39 speech! Amazing!

    I had seen each on NFLN, but not the bonus features. Finally opened mine this AM and watched 2001. One thing really stood out in the bonus features that I'd never seen or heard before.

    When the Patriots played the Browns in Cleveland, Bill's first return to that city as a HC, and the crowd chanted mercilessly Belichick Sucks and we lose the game. Milloy really showed genuine emotion that was a precursor to what we saw this year on the heels of the sypgate vitriol. He was hurt for his HC and he vowed that it would never happen again and the insult would be thoroughly avenged. When we next played Cleveland albeit in our house, Milloy was a beast in a game where Cleveland was pummeled.

    It's sad that there were things those two just couldn't resolve. I think Lawyer just lost focus in the afterglow of that first Superbowl. I know he got his money, but he has since admitted he needed to both step up his game and re-evaluate his attitude about what mattered in the aftermath of being cut. He was a product of a prior system rooted in entitlement and he had regressed to that former norm without even realizing it after winning A ring. Belichick knew that, but was powerless to do anything about it until the player could admit it, and that time came too late. What you sense in his voice and his expression is how important football was/is to him and how much he has missed playing championship football since in hindsight. Atlanta must be agony for him.

    He and Ty should have finished their careers here, but their ego's vs. Bill's disciplined determination not to cater to or make exceptions for individual ego regardless of potential short term implications, just couldn't allow it. As a top tier player and leader on this team, you are either all in on a program which eschews individual ego, or you are a detrement to the system long range irrespective of talent.

    Is this the thing with the commercials with Elway, Cowher, and Namath that NFLN plays every commercial break?
