As you might expect, a masterful production by NFL Films (if the U.S. wants to improve its image overseas it really needs to hire NFL Films to start producing the propaganda) - if you can watch it do so

Each America's Team program features 3 players or coaches providing commentary - for the 75 Steelers it is Swann, White, and Wagner

Dwight sets the tone in the opening when he says "there are two types of Super Bowl teams that no one remembers - those that lost and those that only won once."

I watched it in hi def on Direct TV Channel 95 but since all the game footage from 75 is low def there is not much to be gained in high def other than seeing that Swann, Wagner, and White are getting old (which resonates for someone who is not much younger than them).

Too much to cover but just note two stats -

1. In the AFC Central, 75 Oilers and Bengals were 21-3 against the rest of the league and 0-4 against the Steelers; and

2. We were appalled by all the turnovers this year but in the two playoff wins over the Colts and Raiders the Steelers had 13 (!) turnovers but still won - whatever it takes indeed.

Coming up later this week - 78 Steelers as one of the top 4 SB teams

FYI - apparently NFL Films has made an America's Game program for each of the 40 SB champs - I shudder to think what the price for the set will be but hope they package the 5 Steelers SB shows for purchase.

To me, NFL Films kinda lost something when John Facenda died. That guy was born to narrate NFL Films.

A great defense is typically a very effective eraser of offensive mistakes.

For us old time fans Facenda's voice can't be topped, but since he has been gone for over 20 years NFL Films obviously has to move on - these America's Game programs are not being handled by Harry Kalas and the current regular NFL Films voices - tonight's two narrators for the 84 49ers and 75 Steelers programs were Gene Hackman and Bruce Willis - not too shabby

masterful indeed. so true about dwight providing excellent commentary. wagner is just as much a pimp today as he was back then, and chuck noll is definitely the john wayne of coaching.

1st time 3 teams from the same division had 10 win seasons. bengals, oilers, steelers.

swann and stallworth definitely liked to show their excitement in the endzone. i laughed at the one ref duck as swann spiked a ball that almost hit him in the head.

to see how proud the steelers were to see lambert protect his kicker in the SB is a thing of beauty.

how is it that lambert always looks like one of the biggest dudes on defense? i know the size is relative to the times, but if he were extrapolated to todays game it seems he would be about 6'5"- 6'6" and 250- 260 lbs.

i didnt even realize it was bruce willis doing narration even though i had forewarning.

Don't get me wrong, NFL Films are still very enjoyable to me and the production is top notch. I was just reminiscing a bit - '75 Steelers and all.
