hard to belive how many probowlers we had...
that site make me go WOW...thanks for the link !
Don't it now....you can go there and get lost for an hour as if it was 5 minutes...great site...I can't believe the guy compiled all that information.
and despondent at our RCB.
It could be worse
He did a great job on that site... It's so cool to be able to go there and find any given stat on a season, player or coach. I love how he even has Tom Landry's player stats.
Boy, if a QB were to put up aikmans numbers now people would ***** and complain lol.
Okay, that's a great site, but looking at it depressed me.
I did not realize, we have had a worse run of mediocrity since our SuperBowl years, than we did back in mid-eighties. We really only had 5 bad years back then (It seemed like forever). We've been bad since 1997. Ugh.
Yeah it is a bit sobering...more than a bit.
I am just floored when I see this site because it has a TON of stats. It's also cool to go back and look at the stats on those early teams.
And btw, welcome to the CowboysZone.
I like that site, but I wish it had the boxscore of the 59-14 beating of San Francisco in 1980.
I went back and looked at some stats broken down into 10-year chunks:
1997-2006 -- 73-87, 45.6%, 0-4, 1, 0-0
1987-1996 -- 88-71, 55.3%, 12-3, 5, 3-0
1977-1986 - 103-48, 68.2%, 10-7, 5, 1-1
1967-1976 - 102-37, 73.4%, 10-8, 7, 1-2
We have gone through some rough periods in the past like:
1960-1965 - 27-55, 32.9%
1986-1990 - 25-54, 31.6%
But those were when we were an expansion team without any help and in the midst of rebuilding.
Our stretch of 20 consecutive winning seasons from 1966-1985 are the best ever for an NFL franchise:
1966-1985 - 209-80, 72.3%, 20-16, 13, 2-3
The stretch from 1991-1996 wasn't bad either:
1991-1996 - 70-26, 72.9%, 12-3, 5, 3-0
We have had some great teams in the past and I hope that with some new leadership at the helm we can be again.
YIKES. That is SOME breakdown.
And ya know, for some of us who have been rooting for this team from the beginning...or very near...it's really been a pretty awful run for a while now.
Better things coming...I hope.
One of my favorite stretches was from 1970 - 1982 when we went at least as far as the NFC Title game for 10 of those 13 years.
I dare say that stretch is likely unmatched in modern NFL history.
And yes this is indeed an awesome site that I have visited in the past but lost the link to.
Props to the creation of this little niche in the Zone.
I spend alot of time here...
It's great to revisit the glory years.
