Obviously, five of the ten games were going to be the Cowboys' Super Bowl triumphs. To determine the five remaining games, fans were asked on the Cowboys' official website to vote for their favorites. They were, however, given only nine choices:
1975 Playoffs - Cowboys vs. Vikings - The "Hail Mary" from Staubach to Pearson...
1977 NFC Championship Game - Cowboys vs. Vikings
1980 Playoffs - Cowboys vs. Falcons - The Danny White-led come from behind win...
1983 Cowboys at Vikings - Tony Dorsett's 99 yard TD run...
1992 NFC Championship Game - Cowboys vs. 49ers
1993 NFC Championship Game - Cowboys vs. 49ers
1995 NFC Championship Game - Cowboys vs. Packers
2002 Cowboys vs. Seahawks - Emmitt Smith breaks the all-time rushing record...
2006 Cowboys vs. Buccaneers - Tony Romo throws five touchdowns on Thanksgiving Day...
Now, who chose those nine games and why they chose those nine games, I couldn't tell you. But, given such limited choices, it does look like the fans got it right -- the Hail Mary game, the Atlanta playoff comeback, and the three NFC Championship games of the 90s. Maybe it would have been nicer to see the 75 NFC Championship game or the Dorsett game (which the Cowboys lost, by the way), but it's hard to argue with the results -- again, given such limited choices.
Certainly, the biggest omission is the 1979 season-ending shootout win over the Redskins.Read more ›

Where is the last regular season game by Staubach vs. the Redskins?
The other 4 games are the 2 Superbowl victories from the 70's, The historic 1975 "Hail Mary" playoff game versus the Vikings and the one 1981 Atlanta playoff comeback.
Here is a brief synopsis and critique of each disc:
Disc 1: Superbowl VI: Cowboys vs Dolphins 1972
Anything from the Cowboys of the 70's is appreciated and needed. There is, limited footage of the 70's Cowboys and so many great games. Certainly there could be a 10 game DVD set for the 70's Cowboys alone. Superbowl VI occured in 1972 so the footage isn't exactly digital it's old tape and you can tell. It's too bad this hasn't been restored in its entirety. I guess Steve Sabel and NFL Films doesn't deem the old Superbowls worthy enough to preserve in their entirety. A big mistake I believe on their part. However, I am glad to have the original broadcast. In a way, I think it's better. You get a peephole into the past and how it would have looked on a t.v. set back in 1972. Yes, it's hard to watch, but once you get used to it it's not so bad. Makes me realize how spoiled we are with our HD these days...
The game is pretty uneventful; Dallas wins fairly easily, but seeing Staubach play, any Staubach in its original broadcast is priceless. The three games we get on this set from the 70's make the whole thing worth buying and watching again and again...
Disc 2: The Hail Mary Game: Cowboys vs Vikings 1975
Good to see the greatest Cowboy`s moment; "The Hail Mary Pass," preserved for all eternity. This is the most important of all games and I'm so happy to have it to watch whenever I want!Read more ›
