The Dallas Cowboys are an American football team of the Eastern Division of the Football Conference.
Cowboys joined the League.
as a 1960 expansion team. The Cowboys' streak of 160 sold-out regular and post-season games began in 1990, and included 79 straight sellouts at their former home, Texas Stadium, and 81 straight sell-outs on the road. The franchise holds the record for most Super Bowl appearances (8), corresponding to most championships (8). The Cowboys are the only team to record 20 consecutive winning seasons (1966–1985), in which they only missed the playoffs twice (1974 and 1984), a record that remains unbroken and unchallenged. It remains one of the longest winning streaks in all of professional sports. As of the 2009 season, the Cowboys have the highest winning percentage of any active league franchise (.580). Forbes Magazine, on September 2, 2009, listed the Cowboys as the highest valued sports franchise in the history of the United States, and second in the world behind the United Kingdom's Manchester United, with an estimated value of approximately $1.65 billion, as well as being the wealthiest team in the league, generating almost $269 million in annual revenue.
Dallas Cowboys History
1980s and 1990 (Building 'America's Team)
Danny White became the Cowboys' starting quarterback in 1980 after quarterback Roger Staubach retired. White led the Cowboys to the playoffs five times and won two Division Championships. However, despite playing in the Championship Game three consecutive years (1980–1982), the Cowboys did not reach the Super Bowl during the 1980s.
With the first pick in the draft, the Cowboys selected UCLA quarterback Troy Aikman and then traded veteran running back Herschel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings for five veteran players and eight draft choices. Although the Cowboys finished the 1989 season with a 1–15 record, their worst in almost 30 years, "The Trade" later allowed Dallas to draft a number of impact players to rebuild the team.
Skillful drafts added new star players to the hold-over seasoned players. In 1992 Dallas set a team record for regular season wins with a 13–3 mark. In January 1993, only three years after their 1–15 season, the Cowboys earned their first Super Bowl trip in 14 seasons and defeated the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVII, during which they forced a record 9 turnovers. The following season, they again defeated the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVIII.
When Bill Parcells was lured out of retirement to become coach, the Cowboys became the surprise team of the 2003 season, posting a 10–6 record and a playoff berth by having the best overall defense in the League. Later the new coach Phillips and his staff led the franchise to its best seasonal start ever, a conference-best 13–3 record, and the franchise's 16th NFC East championship title, the most of any team in that division. The Cowboys were eliminated by the (eventual Super Bowl Champion) Giants in the divisional round of the playoffs, the first NFC #1 seed to do so since the 1990 playoff re-alignment. In 2009, the Dallas Cowboys' practice facility collapsed during a wind storm to leave twelve players and coaches injured.
Dallas Cowboys Logos and uniforms
The Dallas Cowboys' blue star logo representative of Texas as "The Lone Star State" is one of the best known team logos in professional sports. The blue star originally was a solid shape until a white line and blue border was added in 1964. The logo has remained the same since. Today, the blue star has been extended to not only the Dallas Cowboys, but owner Jerry Jones' AFL team, the Dallas Desperados that have a similar logo based on the Cowboys.
The Dallas Cowboys' white home jersey has royal blue solid socks, numbers, lettering, and two stripes on the sleeves outlined in black. The helmets are also a unique silver with a tint of blue known as "Metallic Silver Blue" with a blue/white/blue vertical stripe on the center of the crown. The Cowboys also include a unique, if subtle, feature on the back of the helmet: a blue strip of tape with the player's name embossed, placed on the white portion of the stripe at the back of the helmet.
Dallas Cowboys Jersey history
The Cowboys were one of the first teams to primarily wear their white jersey at home, as it was an unofficial rule that teams wear their colored jersey at home. This tradition was started in 1964 by Tex Schramm, who wanted fans to see a variety of opponents' colors at home games. Since then, a number of other teams have worn their white uniforms at home, including the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins. Throughout the years, the Cowboys' blue jersey has been popularly viewed to be "jinxed" because the team often seemed to lose when they wore them. This curse purportedly became popular after the team lost Super Bowl V, when they were forced to wear their colored jersey because they were the designated home team.
