    I am thinking of buying the three Patriots Americas Game programs on DVD.

    Just wanting to know; are they any good?

    I have seen other episodes of AG, but never the Patriots ones.

    I enjoyed them a bunch, and not only because of the subject matter. :D

    I agree with the above posters, they are really excellent. The history of the Patriots DVD is also great, minus the ending.

    Obviously a lot of bias in this but the 2001 Patriots along with the 85 Bears ones are the best.

    I have all the Patriot ones

    They're great. I've seen each Pats one about 100 times. I watch them while I'm on the tread mill.

    That Hong Kong smog precludes you from getting out for a gentle jog in the "burbs" PJ ;)

    they are great to watch. i've bought other teams' America's Game videos as well.

    I would highly recommend that you get them on iTunes. They are much cheaper - only $1.99 each and you can carry them wherever you go as long as you take your laptop with you.

    Yep. The smog, heat, and getting stared at bug me. I do bike outside, though.

    Think about all of the America's Game shows you've seen, and add in the Patriots to the mix. Yes... they are excellent. My favorite was the 2004 one, personally. The, "the Patriots defense then taught rookie Ben Roethlisberger a lesson in playoff football" line is awesome.

    I like the 2003 version because of Rodney's involvement.

    Absolutely yes. Also get the History Of Patriots DVD set which is great... well except the ending which sucks sucks sucks. All three 3 Games To Glory sets are well worth owning too along with 21: The Story Behind The NFL's Longest Winning Streak.

    So buy em all, watch em all, and love em all.

    found the 69 Vikings missing rings on youtube. This is really quality stuff. I might have to buy the Pats SB years too.

    They're definitely a good watch. I don't care for the one in which Bruschi did his commentary, as much as I loved Bruschi's playmaking, I don't care for attitude he had during that Americas game, it kinda doesn't flow well once you've seen enough of the others. I love the 2001&2003 though.


    The entire Americas game series is great, regardless of team. My buddy has the box set of every one of them till 2005 I think it was, I've seen about a dozen. They're fun no matter what team. As someone who wasn't able to watch football back in the 70s on account of not being born/Old enough to enjoy, its a good watch to see stuff like the 70's Steelers, or the 85 Bears, or the 80's 49ers. The only one I truely could'nt stand was the one with Mercury Morris.

    Honestly, all of them are good. It's a good way to remember that football isn't all about our franchise, and a lot of them can go through emotional struggles to make that win so good. It's cool to watch it unfold.


    *edit* Except the 2007 Giants. **** that ****.

    What do you mean by that? Just curious because I though Bru was great and I loved his enthusiasm. I thought Troy seemed uncomfortable.

    Well, it's Mercury Morris. So yes, I can see how that would be annoying.
