This has been brewing in me well before the Pittsburgh Steelers won an NFL record sixth Super Bowl. It all started around the time the Dallas Cowboys spent three years trying to force Quincy Carter as the franchises’ next quarterback.
But there’s no doubt about it in my mind, folks: The Dallas Cowboys are no longer America’s Team, and they won’t be for quite some time.
The Pittsburgh Steelers can claim fame to the name for now and for some time. I realize there are lame attempts at trying to paint the Steelers as a team with flaws as big as those in BIG D—Santonio Holmes sold drugs, the Steelers in the 70s played dirty football—but they are a blue-collar team.
The Cowboys are glitz and glamour and not even Bill Parcells could rid the organization of the glitter.
The Cowboys can win the next Super Bowl and still not be America’s Team unless these major changes we heard Wade Phillips and Jerry Jones talk about start happening.
I don’t know who has the special concoction to mix that perfect chemistry of chemicals that turn the Cowboys into a proud, winning franchise again, but so far it’s been a bunch of talk and no one’s walking a plank to a sea of fire.
So congrats, Pittsburgh fans. You’ve got America’s Team. You earned it. Yeah, you’ve got your share of bruises and cuts, but you made it.
