The Dallas Cowboys are no longer "America's Team." They have been bad ever since winning the Super Bowl in 1995 with Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders. The Cowboys no longer have the talent they did when they won the Super Bowl. They have, at best, an average quarterback in Tony Romo, a bad coach in Jason Garrett - who "ices" his own kicker, and a defense that is getting old and lacks talent - other than DeMarcus Ware.
The Dallas Cowboys should be called "America's Most Disappointing Team." Ever since winning the Super Bowl, the Cowboys have a record of 130-126 and have only won one playoff game in the 16 years. That's just flat out bad for any team, especially the Cowboys, who have only been to the playoffs seven times in the last sixteen years. The record the Cowboys have in the playoffs would cost many coaches and general managers their jobs. But Jerry Jones keeps hiring coaches that are unproven or who haven't been successful for previous teams, except Bill Parcells. Jerry Jones also won't step down as general manager, and hire someone who has a successful track record at handling the duties of general manager.
In my opinion, I think that the only way that the Dallas Cowboys will again be a top team in the NFL, will be when Jerry Jones quites acting like an Al Davis and hires a general manager who knows what they are doing. Until Jerry Jones does this, the Dallas Cowboys will be an average team in the future and won't perform well in the playoffs.
