Hail Mary Replay

NFL Network will replay the 1975 NFC Divisional game between the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings tonight at 8 p.m.

The game is commonly referred to as the Hail Mary game for Roger Staubach's controversial 50-yard "Hail Mary" touchdown pass to Drew Pearson that gave the Cowboys a 17-14 win.

Comments

Watching that game I was struck by three things,

1) Romo and Staubach have the same "make something out of potential disaster" ability.

2) Andre Gurode is not the only Pro Bowl Center to have trouble with the shotgun snap.

3) Landry had cast iron cajones, subing in a rookie Center in the final critical drive. Wow!
