Saints vs 49ers Classic and NFL Films

The 49ers 36 to 32 victory over the Saints in January was undoubtedly the best, most exciting, emotional football game I have ever seen. Does anyone know how long it generally takes for NFL films to work their magic? I absolutely cannot wait, the NFL.com videos and youtube highlights aren't helping me to relive this glorious moment in history.

I just downloaded the game.
I went to the game and I can't even begin to explain how exciting it was to be in the stands. I must have high-fived about two dozen people I've never met on the way out. Iol... it was an emotional roller-coaster.
I had the original game DVR'd , then DVR's the NFL Replay.....the Replay is way better and shorter
Just watched the full replay on NFL.com an hour ago
Torrent of the game + PS3 + PS3 media server =

I sometimes bring up the game to watch the last two drives and the Catch III still brings a smile.
I wore black all that week after the Giants game. I'm still sick to this day behind that lost.

It's on iTunes as a full download. Something like 3$ IIRC. It won't have the additional commentary, but it's the full game.
The 1980 comeback game down 35-7?

They will show the game again in full later this summer as the season gets closer.

NFL Network re-airs all their weekly NFL Replays, in order, starting at a certain point during the summer leading up to the new season. The 49ers/Saints game will get re-aired once they get to their playoff re-airs, probably in late July or August. They will show the game in full since they decided not to do an NFL Replay version and chose instead to re-air the entire game the following week after it was played.

As for an NFL Films 30 or 60-minute special... well, don't hold your breath. It's possible they could produce a special on the game eventually, but like DaDiva said above, it's becoming a rarity these days.
