There has always been an argument about who “America’s Team” is in the NFL. That one team that captures the hearts and minds of a nation, a team that fans either love, hate to love, or love to hate but that always stands at the forefront, a stalwart of the league. “America’s Team” is a champion, a team that people can relate to, a team that champions the same sort of work ethic that all football fans and, indeed, most Americans also a champion.
For a long time, the Dallas Cowboys claimed the moniker for themselves. The shout “how ‘bout them Cowboys?” was a common yell from fans all over the country.
