Welcome to the "Modern NFL." The merger with the AFL has now happened and Dallas is now in the NFC East. They are the first ever Champions of the NFC East, and by far the most frequent Champion having won 15 division titles in the NFC East.
If 1968 was one of our best teams ever, and I believe it was, then 1970 is the payoff for how good that team was. The tempering of the team's metal has begun. In 1970 we finally arrive as a legitimate Championship contender.
I still say Mel Renfro never touched the ball that John Mackey caught and that play was illegal. Oh what might have been. That Super Bowl was the first game I ever watched where I saw the whole game. I got hooked on football that day, and especially on the Cowboys.
In 1970 the Cowboys all time record in wins and losses rose above .500. It has never dropped back below that line and barring a 15 year run of utter futility never will again.
