The two team were completely different. The Packers probably had 7 plays in their playbook and their attitude was "We can tell you what play we're gonna run and you still won't be able to stop it"
Landry's offense was all about disguising the plays, though multiple formations, pre snap movement, etc.
On defense, the Cowboy's approach was very cerebreal. The Packers defense was epitomized by Ray Nitschke who would rip your nose off if he had the chance.
Lombardi was the most successful coach in his era but Landry was an innovator who changed the game forever.
That loss in the Ice Bowl STILL bugs me because the Cowboys had the better team. There is no way the Packers would have matched up with their speed. But the game conditions more than neutralized that advantage.

It's still good....
Predicting the future can be very hard, mostly because it hasnít happened yet."
