History

The Dallas Cowboys are a member of the NFL’s National Football Conference and have become one of the most successful and best known franchises in all of pro sports. The Cowboys began play in the NFL in 1960 as an expansion franchise and were originally known as the Dallas Steers. The team was then renamed by club owners Clint Murchison Jr. and was known briefly as the Rangers.

However, when the Texas Rangers baseball team remained in existence into the 1961 season, the name Cowboys was permanently given to the NFL franchise.  The Cowboys played their home games in the Cotton Bowl from 1960 until 1971 when they moved into the newly built Texas Stadium located in Irvine, Texas:  a suburb of Dallas.

The Cowboys became a competitive football club during the mid 1960’s and appeared in the 1967 NFL Championship game against the Green Bay Packers. The game was played at Lambeau Field in Green Bay and became known as the “Ice Bowl” as the temperature dipped to -13 centigrade -- the coldest NFL game played to date. Unfortunately, the Cowboys lost the game with just 16 seconds remaining when Packers QB Bart Star scored a touchdown on a QB sneak to win the game for the Packers.  

The Cowboys would go on to win two Super Bowl titles during the 1970’s led by quarterback Bart Starr and longtime head coach Tom Landry. The football club would go onto set an NFL record by making the playoffs in 20 consecutive seasons from 1965 to 1985. However, after 1985 the team began to struggle on the field and would not manage to win a Super Bowl during the decade. In 1989, the franchise was purchased by Jerry Jones who immediately fired Landry, the team’s only head coach in club history.

During the 1990’s, the team would once again dominate the NFL, becoming the first team to win three Super Bowls in just four seasons. These teams were lead by star players such as QB Troy Aikman, RB Emmitt Smith, and WR Michael Irvin.  By the end of the ‘90s, the team began another transition as many of its stars retired or were nearing the end of their careers.

The Cowboys have been somewhat inconsistent since the 2000 season, though they have often been a competitive club. During the 2007 season, Tony Romo set franchise records for passing yards and touchdown passes and emerged as a star. Unfortunately, he has also gained a reputation for turning the ball over in big games.

In 2008, the Cowboys began playing their home games at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas. The new stadium was criticized for being too costly with a price tag of over $1 billion. It is also known for its massive television screen that at times interferes with punts.

The Dallas Cowboys have the record for most playoff games with 58, NFC Championship games with 14, and Super Bowl appearances with eight. The franchise is also second to only Pittsburgh with five Super Bowl victories. The Lone Star on their helmets, the blue and silver uniforms, and even their cheerleading team are some of the most recognizable symbols in sport. They may truly be “America’s Team” as they are so often called.
