The NFL.com did a series on the to-10 best nicknames in NFL history, and of course America’s Team pulls in the top honors.
The Dallas Cowboys truly are America’s Team. You can watch a great video of America’s Team here.
The NFL Films actually coined the moniker and the name flourished. They are the league’s most popular team and continuously have the most popular players. Mel Blount, a Pittsburgh Steelers receiver, says in the video that the nickname was disrespectful to the rest of the league. Oh suck it, Blount. Get over it.
It amazes me how angry people get that the Cowboys are America’s Team. We’ll likely see some of the anger soon in the comments section.
Here’s a toast to the NFL’s most spectacular and five-time Super Bowl Champion, Dallas “America’s Team” Cowboys!
