"After waiting for years, NFL films is finally releasing old Super Bowl and playoff games in their entirety on dvd. America's team gets the dvd treatment with a 10 disc set that includes all 5 super bowl wins and 5 other great games chosen by the fans. I won't list all games as you can look that up in other reviews. The video quality of these games are pretty good. Since more than half the games are from the nineties, the original broadcast quality is very good on these dvds. Each dvd says at the start that these games are from the original broadcast on the day of the game and that some plays and video footage may be missing. The only game that is lower quality is Super Bowl 6 against the Dolphins which is to be expected as this game dates from 1972. This is the only game in the set that is incomplete as it is missing some plays and scoring field goals, but since the game was one sided, its not that big of a deal. Each dvd has 3 annoying NFL promos at the start up of the disc and you have to skip them each time who want to get to the game. They should have just put them on the first disc and not on all 10. You can select each quater from the menu of every game and other than the 2 Super Bowl wins against the Bills, there are no post game interviews or award ceremonies for the other games. The dvds are placed in separate plastic binders within the large snap case thats about the width of 2 normal size dvd cases. There is no other additonal information or booklet included with the set, so if you want to look up the stats from each game, you should try online. Being a big Cowboys fan, I have to say that I'm very satisfied with this collection. It's nice to finally have whole NFL games on dvd. I just hope that they'll release another Cowboys set in the future that has even more games from the Staubach era and some classic division rival matchups. Until then, I'll keep watching these great games from the past."
As Voted By The Fans!

"Since the early reviews have blasted Warner Home Video for the games they chose as the Dallas Cowboys' "10 Greatest Games," I thought it was important to point out that THE FANS THEMSELVES helped choose five of these ten games!
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. That is, without question, one of the greatest games in Dallas Cowboys history, if not THE greatest. Maybe Warner couldn't get the original network broadcast of the game. I don't know. But Warner did include a lengthy recap and highlight reel of that game as a bonus feature on Disc 1 of the first "Complete History of the Dallas Cowboys" DVD. They described it as "the greatest game of the NFL's greatest rivalry" and yet, it didn't make the Cowboys' Top 10. Go figure.
But it is what it is. It's hard to argue with the inclusion of the five Super Bowl victories, the Hail Mary game, or the Atlanta playoff comeback and certainly the NFC Championship games over the 49ers and Packers are AMONG the greatest in Cowboys history. This may not be a definitive collection, but it is nice to be able to watch the original network broadcasts of some of the greatest moments in the rich history of America's Team."
A great start but I need more Staubach

"As a 39 yr old fan and one for as long as I could remember this is a great volume. It is nice to actually see Super Bowl 7 even though the quality is poor. I want more games! We need the 1979 game against Washington; the Clint Longley Thanksgiving Day game against Washington; The 1993 Giants game were Emmitt injures his shoulder; the 1999 opener against Washington when Aikman throws that bomb to Rocket; and even last years Monday Night Game against Buffalo where Romo brings the `boys back."
