Dallas Cowboys Team History

The Dallas Cowboys are one of the most successful franchises in NFL history, having appeared in eight Super Bowls and have won five of these championship games.

The Cowboys joined the NFL as a 1960 expansion team. The Cowboys national following might best be represented by its NFL record of consecutive home sell-outs.

Tom Landry, one of the most successful coaches in professional football history, led the club to two Super Bowl victories during the 1970s, with teams starring safety Mel Renfro and quarterback Roger Staubach. Under head coaches Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer, the team won three Super Bowls during the 1990s, with lineups featuring quarterback Troy Aikman and running back Emmitt Smith. The Cowboys joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1960. During its first season, the team failed to win a single game. In 1965, under Landry, the Cowboys earned their first of nine consecutive trips to the playoffs.

In 2009 The Cowboys moved into their new 80,000 seat stadium "Cowboy Stadium" which cost a recored 1.3 Billion dollars to construct.At the time it had the world's largest column-free interior and the fourth largest high definition video screen, which hangs from 20-yard line to 20-yard line

  • 1960 - Present Dallas Cowboys (NFL)

In the initial months following its formation, the Dallas team was known as the "Steers." After a few weeks, however, the name was changed to "Rangers." At the same time, a baseball team operated in Dallas under that name, but was scheduled to fold before the 1960 football season. However, when the baseball team decided to play one more season, Clint Murchison Jr. and Bedford Wynne, two owners of the new NFL team, selected the name of Cowboys to avoid confusion.
