When describing the Dallas Cowboys, there is only one thought that comes to mind and most NFL fans would instantly think of the phrase “America’s Team”. The phrase which gave the nickname to the Cowboys was from an NFL film production, about the Dallas Cowboys. “America’s Team” began in 1960 under the influential coach of Tom Landry who led them to a very successful first few years in the NFL’s existence.
The Cowboys really began their NFL dominance from 1966 onwards, as they had 20 straight winning seasons, which included the franchise making 18 playoffs, claiming 13 division titles, appearing in five Super Bowls and winning two.
During that time they claimed the 1966 and 1967 division titles, however, they fell each time in the Championship game which earned them a reputation of being a good team without winning the big games that mattered. That reputation came after they made the Super Bowl V, but fell to the Baltimore Colts in the last few seconds losing the game 16-13.
That seemed to spur “America’s Team” as by the next season they were fired up and ready to make amends of their time on the big stage, and by Super Bowl VI they claimed their maiden Vince Lombardi trophy, defeating the Miami Dolphins in convincing fashion winning 24-3.
The 70s could be known as the golden period of the Cowboys as they introduced future Hall of Fame players, quarterback Roger Staubach, tackle Rayfield Wright, defensive tackle Bobby Lilly and Randy White, defensive back Mel Renfro and running back Tony Dorsett.
The Cowboys would make the NFL showpiece event three more times before the 70s wrapped up appearing in Super Bowl X, Super Bowl XII and Super Bowl XIII. Super Bowl XII however, is the one Cowboys fans would take more seriously as they defeated the Denver Broncos 27-10 to claim their second Vince Lombardi trophy.
Although the Cowboys made the playoffs at the beginning of the 80s, there wasn’t much to celebrate about as they lost the Conference Championships from 1980-1982 and lost a wildcard playoff in 1983. The Cowboys would endure their worst season in the NFL in 1989 as they won only one game ending with a 1-15 record.
The 90s provided a new golden era for the Cowboys as future Hall of Famers Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Micheal Irvin lead the team to three Super Bowl triumphs (XXVII, XXVIII and XXX).
The Super Bowl XXVII triumph over the Buffalo Bills ended a 15 year drought for the Cowboys to reach the ultimate goal and would spark the team to go back-to-back when they won Super Bowl XXVIII over the Miami Dolphins the following year.
The Cowboys didn’t have to wait long to get their hands on their fifth and final Vince Lombardi trophy as two years later they were back in the NFL’s ultimate showpiece event, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX.
The Cowboys have been a regular factor in the postseason action from 2000 to 2019 having been involved in seven playoff appearances, however, they have either lost the wildcard playoffs or the divisional round.
The Cowboys most recent appearance in the playoffs was in the 2018 season where they won the wildcard playoffs defeating Seattle Seahawks but lost the divisional round to the Los Angeles Rams.
The 2020 offseason saw the drama of Dak Prescott with the team wanting a shorter term deal while the QB wanted a multi-year big money contract. The Cowboys ended up franchise tagging Prescott, hoping that his 2020 play would be able to help the sides come to an agreement in 2021 but he lasted just 4.5 games before dislocating and breaking his ankle in Week 5.
The Cowboys, behind Andy Dalton and two other back up quarterbacks at times, went on to miss out on a postseason berth by just one game despite finishing with a 6-10 record, highlighting the lack of quality in the NFC East.
There is now speculation and uncertainty about Prescott and the Cowboys moving forward once again, with the two sides hopeful but distant on a contract early in the 2021 offseason.
After a record-breaking start last season by Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys, the Cowboys stumbled with Dak suffering a season ending injury early in the season. This year the Cowboys are looking to bounce back from a 6-10 season which saw them miss the playoffs again. With Dak Prescott returning, the Cowboys have playoff aspirations but are they good enough to make the Super Bowl?
The Cowboys have been ‘America’s Team’ for a long time and this is in part due to their success throughout franchise history under the leadership of owner Jerry Jones. Unlike other owners Jones has played an extremely active role in personnel decisions acting like a GM.
Jones has consistently built good teams but recently the Cowboys have failed to make the Super Bowl with their last appearance in 1995. The Cowboys have also failed to make the playoffs since 2018 which is also worrying.
In order to turn the tide the Cowboys hired Mike McCarthy last season. McCArthy was the long-time coach of the Green Bay Packers until he was let go in 2018. With the Packers and Aaron Rodgers, McCarthy won the Super Bowl in 2010. This is his only Super Bowl win to date.
After a blistering start in his first season as head coach of the Cowboys, the team played poorly for the rest of the season mostly due to injury. Now with a fully healthy squad and more importantly with Dak returning, McCarthy looks to take the Cowboys back to the playoffs.
The front office has been making moves to get better this season. One of the key moves was firing defensive coordinator Mike Nolan who led the Cowboys to a historically bad season allowing the franchise record 473 points last season. In fact over the first six games, the Cowboys gave up 36.6 points per game.
With Nolan gone, and Super Bowl winning defensive coordinator Dan Quinn brought in, the Cowboys defense should get a big boost. In terms of personnel the Cowboys added heavily to their defense in the draft, drafting 6 straight defensive players in the first 4 rounds.
In free agency the Cowboys weren’t very active, although they did re-sign Dak Prescott to a 4 year $160 million contract. The roster and team have certainly improved due to moves made by the front office but it still isn’t enough to put the Cowboys in the upper echelon of teams in the NFC.
The Cowboys offense was phenomenal with Dak Prescott under center last year. In his 4 full starts last season Dak passed for 1690 yards which was an NFL record through the first 4 games. With Dak returning, the Cowboys’ 8th ranked passing attack should get even better especially with the elite receiving core of Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup. This unit is arguably top 3 in the league behind Buccaneers and Chiefs.
The Cowboys are also strong on the ground with All Pro Ezekiel Elliot and solid Tony Pollard returning. Although Elliot has not been as productive as he has in the past, the return of the air attack should take some pressure off him.
Pollard is also a solid back and should get a large share of the reps as he has been one of the more efficient runners in the league. Pollard is a tough tackle, causing 46 missed tackles on less than 187 carries during his 2 year career. The Cowboys also have Dak Prescott who has been a good runner and can extend plays as well as make plays with his legs.
The Cowboys also have a top 10 offensive line, with Tyron Smith, La’el Collins and Zack Martin returning. This unit has shown in the past why they are one of the best in the league and they should remain like that this year. Offensively the Cowboys have all the pieces to shred any defense, the question is whether or not Dak can return to form after his injury.
Defensively the Cowboys were horrible last season. Although they were actually decent when it came to pass coverage their run stopping was atrocious. The Cowboys were 31st in the league in yards allowed, 30th in runs of 20+ yards allowed, and 30th in yards per carry allowed.
Despite not allowing many passing yards the Cowboys did allow 29.6 points per game and 34 passing touchdowns. This unit was at the very bottom of the league. Now with a new coordinator and new draft picks, the defense has nowhere but up to go.
The addition of linebackers Micah Parsons and Jarbil Cox as well as defensive lineman Chauncey Golston and Osa Odighizuwa should secure the Cowboys’ front 7 and hopefully prevent them from repeating their woeful performance from last year.
Incumbents Leighton Vander Esch and DeMarcus Lawrence should make life easier for these rookies but in the first year of Dan Quinn’s scheme, there are likely going to be growing pains on this Cowboys defense.
Although the Cowboys should improve, they will likely still remain in the bottom half of the league defensively unless their rookies turn out to be Pro Bowl level players. This defense will be the biggest reason why the Cowboys will fail to go deep into the postseason if they even make it at all.
With many believing Dallas could win the NFC East and be tough competition against the league’s best, expectations were high for the 2020 season.
With injuries and lack of form under new head coach Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys finished just 6-10 overall, but a league worst 5-11 against the spread. The Cowboys performed marginally better at home, finishing 3-5 ATS at AT&T Stadium compared to 2-6 when travelling.
Dallas’ defense wasn’t just bad this season, it was one of the worst defenses in recent memory, allowing teams to get a lot of yards and a lot of points. Their offense performed much better at home resulting in a 6-2 total points record in Dallas and finishing just 3-5 on the road, 9-7 overall.
Despite their terrible season last year, Dallas has opened with +3000 odds for Super Bowl LVI. Those odds are seventh best in the NFC and easily the best of all NFC East teams.
