Super Bowl XII

The Dallas Cowboys played in their fourth Super Bowl after the 1977 season as heavy favorites against the Denver Broncos, who were making their first trip to the big game.

Of course, the Dallas defense was ferocious for much of the game, forcing eight turnovers and recording four sacks. The highly touted Denver defense forced six Dallas fumbles but only managed to recover two of them.

Dallas won, of course, 27-10, giving Tom Landry his second and final world title.

Leading to our quote of the day. Who said this after the game?

Orange Crush is soda water, baby. You drink it. It don’t win football games.

Thirty-six seasons later, the Broncos are heading to their seventh Super Bowl thanks to their 26-16 win over New England on Sunday.

Blogging impatiently about the Cowboys since 2006. Being a fan since 1977 hasn't required quite as much patience.

    Yes! The full quote was, “He stopped me short in the first half, but I gave him some different looks and went inside on him a lot. Orange Crush is soda water, baby. You drink it. It don’t win football games”
