The ten discs DVD set basically covers the 3 90's Dynasty Cowboys Superbowls and 3 NFC Championship victories.
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!
Disc 3: Superbowl XII: Cowboys Vs Broncos 1977
I really enjoyed watching this game. A treasure. You just have to see it for yourself. It's something special. Staubach, Dorsett, Pearson, Too Tall Jones, Randy White, Harvey Martin etc. all at their best! This is a historic moment in Cowboy's and America's history.
Disc 4: The Atlanta Comeback: Cowboys vs Atlanta 1981
Glad to see Danny White getting in on the glory. Many fans have forgotten just what a great quarterback he was, I'm glad to see one his finer moments on DVD. This actually is my favorite of all the games on the DVD set. The quality is actually pretty good and you get to see The Cowboys at the height of their popularity in the early 80's winning in the last seconds in the playoffs. Dallas gets a lot of respect from the commentators here as well. This is also a good look at what football was like in the early 80's when I first starting watching football. What a great time it was, even though Dallas didn't get to a Superbowl.
The last thing you see is Landry walking off the field, stoic and cool as ever.
Disc 5: NFC Championship: Cowboys vs 49ers 1993
This is a good one. The two great Harper catches, Dallas getting revenge from the 1982 Championship loss, Staubach on the sidelines. Aikman becoming the next great Cowboy's quarterback. It's all here, the beginning of the 90's Cowboy's dynasty. The 49ers and their terrible field, (which was partly restored for that game.) A lot of history in this game, I've watched it many times and will watch it many more.
Disc 6: Superbowl XXVII: Cowboys vs Bills 1993
Great to see Dallas win a Superbowl after all those years of being pushed down by the league. I hated the part where in the 3rd quarter Irvin makes a spectacular touchdown catch and right after, all they show is Thurman Thomas pouting on the sidelines for the whole celebration. You hear the crowd screaming and music playing and they cut the whole thing out by showing one player on the opposing team, I felt cheated in a way. At the end, Leon Lett's ruined touchdown by the Bills Bee Bee who swats the ball out of his hand after he crosses the goal line denying Dallas the record for the most points in a Superbowl. It's clear he crosses the goal line and it was petty of the refs to take that touchdown away from Lett.
Actor Gary Busey is shown standing on the Dallas Sideline yucking it up with the Cowboys players.
I always knew I liked Gary Busey!
One thing I like about the coverage for this game is they do bring up a lot of Superbowl facts and the commentators talk up the Cowboys a lot, which is good.
Disc 7: NFC Championship: Cowboys vs 49ers 1994
This game is just plain sad for the 49ers who's offense is totally dominated by The Cowboys massive defense. Steve Young is so harrasssed and haggard by the end of the game he looks like he's been drug around by a truck. Aikman gets his famous concussion in this game and Bernie Kozar steps in and throws two touchdowns! Alvin Harper and Michael Irvin are unstoppable!
We get a John Madden/Pat Summerall game here. It's the last game ever done by them for CBS. Also this is a last look at the old Texas stadium turf with the red stripes on the 50 and 20 yard lines. You can tell the carpet needs to be changed for there are a lot of wet spots all over the field. So it's historic on many levels.
Disc 8: Superbowl XXVIII: Cowboys vs Bills 1994
This game is fun to watch, Dallas starts out slow but they have the game in hand the whole time. The coverage is better than the previous Superbowls in my opinion. The close ups in the game are really good and the commentary is positive.
Disc 9: NFC Championship Game: Cowboys vs Packers 1996
This is a good game to watch, although I think its my least favorite of the games on the set. Dallas pretty much handles the Packers and a young Brett Favre is shut down from doing much of anything.
Disc 10: Superbowl XXX: Cowboys vs Steelers 1996
The last Cowboys Superbowl. A very magical game and it brings back a lot of memories for me.
It was great to see Dallas beat the Pittsburg Steelers. In a way, this is the greatest Superbowl, it undoes the curse and dispels the shadow cast over The Cowboys and its fans by the Steelers Superbowls of the 70's.
This was a game that I believe the commentators really wanted to see Pittsburg win. There is even one part where commentator Dick Enberg says something interesting after Dallas going for it on 4th and 1. The Cowboys make it and he states that Dallas "having the biggest offensive line and the biggest fullback (Darrel Johnston) just isn't fair." When I heard that for the first time I laughed out loud. (Funny how when Dallas wins, it isn't "fair.") I think this Superbowl was the beginning of the football media becoming heavily anti-Cowboy and you can tell by listening to the commentators spin on the game. Nevertheless the fans in the stadium are clearly pro Dallas and the cheering is always higher than for the Steelers when Dallas does something like score touchdowns.
I noticed a theme with the three 90's Superbowls; Dallas has their own music play when they score, this is unlike any other team I've ever seen in all the other Superbowls. Although the media may tell you different; those 90's Cowboys were extremely popular thanks in part to what the Cowboys teams did in the past (70's and 80's) and also in part to just how good the 90's Cowboys were. The best team ever assembled in the history of the NFL.
