In this episode of Know Your Dallas Cowboys: The Show, Gnome gets a bit emotional discussing the Cowboys’ win over Philadelphia. He sends his cousin, Dome, up to Green Bay to report about what people do for fun in Green Bay. As Dome discovers, people there just flock to Lambeau Field to look at it, even though they live four or five blocks away.
Given the lack of viewers, we decided to rename our show from 10 Minutes to Know Your Dallas Cowboys to Know Your Dallas Cowboys: The Show so that we could produce episodes that were less than 10 minutes long. As it turns out, this show ended up being just about 10 minutes long, thus meaning that we just changed the name for really no good reason.
Here is some background information that relates to the show:
Between 1960 and 1970, Dallas faced Cleveland 20 times, including the playoffs. The Browns won 14 of those games, including two huge playoff games at the end of the 1960s. You might or might not know the names of some of the Cowboy-killers of the decade: Jim Brown (232 yards vs. Dallas in 1963); Bobby Mitchell (3 TDs in 1960; 140 rushing yards in 1962); Rich Kreitling (several touchdown receptions vs. Dallas); Gary Collins (same); Paul Warfield (same); Frank Ryan (Cleveland QB); Bill Nelson (Cleveland QB); Leroy Kelly (another of Cleveland’s Hall of Fame RBs).
This series was not all bad news for Dallas, though. The Cowboys pulled off one of their best performance in early franchise history when they routed the Browns 45-21 on December 2, 1962. The picture below (also featured in the clip) show Amos Marsh running for a few of his 117 yards that day.
