    "America's Team'' turns 50 this year.

    Face it, Steelers fans and Packers fans and Raiders fans and fans of all the other teams with national followings: the Dallas Cowboys ARE America's Team because, while it can't be quantified, more people follow them than any other team in any other sport. They follow them to love them and they follow them to hate them -- there are more people rooting for the Cowboys and more people rooting against them.

    The moniker "America's Team'' wasn't a self-designation.

    It was coined by Bob Ryan, vice president of NFL Films, who put the phrase on the Cowboys' 1978 highlight film.

    Gil Brandt recently put together a list of the team's accomplishments and, love 'em or hate 'em, you have to respect them. Of the 53 players (current roster size) on this all-time Cowboys' team, Brandt acquired 35 of them.

    "S -- Cliff Harris (1970-79): Made six straight Pro Bowls from 1974-79. Finished with 29 interceptions in a top safety tandem with Cliff Harris."


    What? No long snapper on the team? More lack of respect for poor Dale Hellestrae...

    Love Walls, but how is he chosen over Deion? And Cornell Green absolutely gets no love.
