    Today in Cowboys History.

    47 years ago today, before he even had a confirmed franchise, Clint Murchison hired Tom Landry to be his Head Coach.

    Thank you Coach.

    Also on this date, (we have never lost on this historic date) we completed the only sweep of the 5 team NFC East ever. Any team who accomplishes it now will never be able to say they swept all 8 games in a 5 team division.

    Not to panic anyone, but we've never won on New Year's Eve, the date of our last game.

    Didn't Philly sweep the East in 2004?

    We can only hope we break the trend.

    I didn't think so, but I looked it up and you are correct.

    They may have done a 6 game sweep, read above and it says no team can say they swept an 8 game division. No one ever will be able to say that either. Unless they add another team and then someone sweeps.

    I edited it to be correct. He was right, I had said no team had ever swept.

    Not sure it will matter, I don't see Atlanta beating Philly and we are locked into the 5th seed if we don't win the East. Of course if we can't beat the lowly Lions, we should just forfeit the playoffs anyway.

    We've played twice.

    The Ice Bowl in 1967 and the Conference Championship to the Redskins in 1972.

    I sure get depressed going from Super Bowl talk to Toilet Bowl in a short 3 week period.......what a let down!

    But, I still love the Dallas Cowboys.......it is sad to think of all this talent and we may waste it away.
