Lions vs. Skins next year?
But the reference is the last time the Cowboys were in the NFC Championship Game. The Cowboys ARE the reference point.
It's basically a stat to show how long it has taken the most popular NFL franchise to reach the NFC Championship since the last time they got there.
Yes, but the Cowboys are the most popular team, and, until the Patriots and 49ers took over, had more appearances in the Championship Game then any other franchise.
No one cares about how long it's been since the Chiefs reached the Championship Game. People (fans) care how long it has taken the Cowboys to get there. And had we gotten to the NFC Championship this year, the ratings would have been through the roof.
Since 10 years is less arbitrary, you can say that the Cowboys are 1 of only 4 teams that haven't been to an NFCCG in the past 10 years (DAL/Wash/Det/TB)
For those that don't mind it being arbitrary, it's actually in the past 9 years.
Rather than using "1996“, it would be better to just say that 13 NFC teams have been to at least 2 NFCCG since the Cowboys were last in one.
The time frame isn't really the important part, especially since nobody uses a 23 year window to evaluate anything.
Yeah, 23 years is a bit funny
Unless they are being honest and saying they want to highlight specifically Dallas in the worst possible light, then pulling 23 years out their tail is very arbitrary.
Now if they come out and say that's what they want to do, then okay.
Otherwise, if you're already going 20 something years back, then you can completely flip the script by going back to 1992.
Since 1992, NO NFC team has won more Super Bowls than the Dallas Cowboys.
Since 1992, only one team in the entire NFL has won more Super Bowls than the Dallas Cowboys.
The sad thing about the length of this NFCCG dry spell is even if you go back to 1992, they still are only in third place - tied with 4 other teams.
Even sadder is that Redskins and Lions fans will say you are arbitrarily excluding them because they were both in it in 1991.
We like our guys.
If you don't like the way Jerry runs things, buy the team and do it your way. Otherwise, there are 31 other fan clubs you and everyone else that complains about the Cowboys can join.
Jerry is that you?
I just can't get my head around that stat. Brutal.
Its a process
You must be quite a fairweather fan to even think that way!!!!!
Why are you defending the last 22 years? Are you JJ?
No. Im just pointing out that they should just say up front what they're doing.
Is the last 20 years a better number? Does it change anything?
It would be more honest, so yes.
I don't care what tbe final results are. That wasnt the point.
Just be honest if there is an agenda
