The Cowboy's Greatest Decade and

We often hear posters and commenters talk about the glory years and wistfully talk about Jimmie and Troy and the greatest teams of the Cowboys. Which is the greatest decade in Cowboy's history and how do the decades rank?

Number 1 1970's 10 winning seasons in 10 years

Number 2 1990's 7 winning seasons in 10 years

Number 3 2000's 6 winning seasons in 10 years

Number 4 1980's 5 winning seasons in 10 years

Number 5 1960's 4 winning seasons in 10 years

What will the 2010's bring? While we haven't had a winning season yet, but we have only had 1 losing season.

Most consecutive winning seasons = 20 (1966-1985) NFL Record

Most consecutive losing seasons = 5 (the first 5) only 3 consecutive losing seasons since (2000-2002)

So actually things haven't been as bad as some would have us believe and while the 10's definitely won't match the 70's, this history tells us why the Cowboys are the NFL's greatest franchise despite what you may hear from the talking heads and why we follow this team through its ups and downs. And as one who has lived through all of these years, I can tell you that there were teams in the 70's that were just as frustrating as the one we are following today. Most BTBer's other than Dawn, Yellowbeard, Howley, and a few others don't remember the 70's. So BTB ...

As one who has been drinking the Kool-Aid for over 50 years I have to ask, what do you think this decade will bring?
