Dallas Cowboys No Longer America’s Team
The Dallas Cowboys, aka America’s Team have had a tough run the past season or two but is it enough to lose their spot in America’s heart ? Apparently the answer is yes,because a recent poll found the Green Bay Packers to be the favorite NFL team.
Aaron Rodgers‘ Super Bowl-winning Green Bay Packers were picked by 22 percent of voters as their favorite team in the NFL, according to Public Policy Polling’s newest national survey. The Cowboys finished second, with 11 percent of the vote, followed by the Bears, Giants and Steelers.
NFL Films famously gave the Cowboys the title of “America’s Team” in a 1978 highlight film. The program opened up with this intro: “They appear on television so often that their faces are as familiar to the public as presidents and movie stars. They are the Dallas Cowboys, America’s Team.”
It seems these days the Cowboys are more famous for bad plays and missed opportunities. But, as a loyal fan I could care less about a poll and know that in MY house the Dallas Cowboys will always be America’s team !
