It i was on today and I forgot the total list because I found it when it was half over and may have some out of order but I know #1,#2 and #10 for sure

#1 America's team
#2 Steel Curtain
#3 Fearsome Foursome
#4 Purple People Eaters
#5 Greatest Show on Turf
#5 Air coryell
#6 No Name defense

#10 Monsters of the Midway

"The hogs" made the top 6 but can't remember what number
"the aints" was up there also but don't remember what number also

I looked at nfl network scheduling and didn't see where they will rebroadcast it


I am trying to find the list and get it right along with another date it was shown

what is significant, is that it Explained where America's team came from

NFL films needed a name of the cowboys besides "Next Seasons Champs" they noticed that every where they went, Cowboy fans were there.. and Cowboys merchandising was selling very well.. so NFL coined the term. Tom Laundry hated it because it put a bullseye on the Cowboys.. Opposing teams hated it.. I think it was Dick Vermeil .. said hey we are in America (Philly) they are not our team..


Goodness Deacon Jones was a monster on those clips that they showed

I am trying to search when it comes on again for those that can dvr it
