A divisional Playoff game at Texas stadium against the Rams. The Rams upset the favored Cowboys and went on to the Super Bowl. It's one of the biggest upsets in playoff history. Although Roger didn't play very well in that game, he finished the regular season as the highest rated QB in the NFL. So he retired at the top of his game, which is rare. He is often referred to as the greatest player to ever wear a Dallas Cowboys jersey.

Terry Bradshaw was AMAZING!!

    Staubach, Tarkenton, and John Brodie. Changed the game. They were revolutionary QB's. Brodie was the first. Most people believe that Tom Landry invented the shotgun formation that the Cowboys used. But actually the first team that used the shotgun was the Niners. And the first QB who ran out of that formation was Niner John Brodie. At least I think so??....Either way, Brodie was also a very good QB.....Long, long ago and now forgotten......

    These Three Changed The Game Into What You Watch Today....Before Them?....You Wouldn't Recognize The Game That Was Played Before Them! STUDENT BODY RIGHT....STUDENT BODY LEFT.....STUDENT BODY UP THE MIDDLE!...

    Believe It!

    And This Guy Too!.....The Bomb!
