The unfortunate lineup of games included in this set is listed below. As a longtime Vikings fan, I'm really disappointed that this greatest games collection doesn't include anything from the Super Bowl years. In fact, not only does this set not include any Fran Tarkenton games, it doesn't even include any Tommy Kramer or Daunte Culpepper games (Kramer was on the roster for one of them, but Wade Wilson was the starter).
As someone who has followed the Vikings since they were perennial Super Bowl contenders, I honestly believe that only two of these games qualify as two of their "greatest" games. At the very least, the Kramer to Rashad miracle game versus Cleveland in 1980 should have been included in this set (lots of copies exist among collectors). The Vikings also played 3 great playoff games against the Rams in the 1970s. At least one of those should have qualified, not to mention playoff wins over the Cowboys and Redskins during that same time.
What this greatest games set indicates, maybe more than other such packages, is the dearth of available library tapes of complete NFL games. That may also explain why so few of these compilations were ever issued.
The Vikings went to four Super Bowls. So where are their four NFC Championship victories?
Instead we're given games that have little suspense or drama, and in hindsight, A.P., who's featured (and lauded) in the last two, has in recent years personal and legal problems that have badly tarnished his star.
Weak choices aside, no complaints here on video and audio quality. Yet because of content, this one's only for fanatic Minnesota fans.
I have been a season ticket holder for the Vikings since 1998 (the 15-1 season), so I was in attendence for 4 of the games in this set. Here are my thoughts about the games in the greatest set.
2 of the games I definitely agree with. - Adrian Peterson's 296 yard rushing game in Nov. 2007 against San Diego (it was a thrill to watch him in that game, especially the 2 long touchdown runs.) - Divisional Playoff at San Francisco 49ers in January 1988 where Anthony Carter had over 200 receiving yard in the upset victory (The Vikes almost made it to the Super Bowl that year, losing a HEARTBREAKER at Washington by 7 points in the Conference final, where Darrin Nelson dropped the ball by the goal line on 4th down, with only seconds left in regulation.
3 of the games i thought weren't exactly what you would call greatest games. - Vikes vs. Giants (end of Dec. 2008) Clinched the divsion by a 20-19 score against the #1 seeded Giants...
