the best NFL Franchise is the cowboys. the Dallas cowboys are tie for the most super bowl wins. has most consecutive playoff births . cowboys has a wing record over all there rivals. they play in the hardest confine all time and is the best of all time in the conference.
what is NFL Franchise better than the Dallas cowboys ????? stealers,49ers,or the giants. those teams come close but they not there. only the best teams are called America's team they are the Dallas cowboys and the new York Yankees which is the best baseball Franchise.
the name says every thing the cowboys is America team and the best!!!!!!!!!
Dallas cowboys had some of the best player to ever step on a football field. they are Troy Akimen, Emmit Smith, Ed "too tall" Jones, Mel refrono,and many more.
when the Dallas cowboys became apart of the NFL they had there worst record but years later they became a power house. They earn the right to be called America's team.
facts to prove America's team.
The first NFL team to win three Super Bowls in four years.
The first and only NFL team to play in eight Super Bowls. They have a 5–3 record in the Super Bowl, with all three losses by a margin of four points or less.
The first and only NFL team to lose a Super Bowl and still have a player selected as the Super Bowl MVP. (Linebacker Chuck Howley, who intercepted two passes and forced a fumble in Super Bowl V, became the first defensive player to win the award.)
The first team in NFC East history to sweep all of its division opponents (home and away), going 8–0 in 1998 against the Cardinals, Giants, Eagles, and Redskins.
The first NFL team to feature both the NFL leading rusher (E. Smith) and leading receiver (M. Irvin) in the same season (1991).
The first and only NFL team to post 20 consecutive winning seasons (1966–1985).
The first NFL team to have 24 winning regular seasons.
The first NFL team to earn 27 post-season appearances.
The first NFL team to send at least 13 players to the Pro Bowl (2007 season).
The first and only NFL team to play 54 postseason games.
The first an only NFL team to win 32 postseason games

My oppennent states that the cowboys are the best franchise in the NFL. But the only thing he shows records that were broken by the cowboys. Just because they might have been the first Nfl team to have 24 winning regular seasons doesnt make them the best franchise. Every franchise's goal is to win superbowls. The Franchise with the most superbowl wins would be considered the NFL's best franchise. The San Francisco 49ers have won 5 super titles. 49ers are 5-0 at a suerbowl game. Meaning they apperaerd five times and won five times. So saying this doesnt that mean the 49ers are as good as the cowboys. Showing that they aren't the best franchise.

But what about the Pittsburgh Steelers??? The Steelers are tied with the Dallas Cowboys with the same amount of super bowl wins. But this year the steelers made it the AFC championship, where as the cowboys didn't even make it to the wild cards. Meaning they are just one game away from the superbowl. This year they have the number one ranked defense. They have a good chance this year to win another superbowl

But where would that put the Dallas Cowboys?? It would put them one superbowl win behind the Steelers. Meaning that the Dallas Cowboys would be only second best.

So as i have showed each teams goal is to win superbowls. The team with the most superbowl wins would be condiered the best NFL franchise. The cowboys are tied with the most superbowl wins . Thus making them not the best NFL franchise.

My opponent says that if the Pittsburgh steelers win the the super bowl this year it would make the Dallas cowboys the second best. what dose this? means it means that the Dallas cowboys are the best as of now.
reasons they are the best as of now
14-13 Cowboys lead series over Steelers
464 -341 -6 OVERALL RECORD
.747 record
these stats that talk about the overall franchise as of now. these aren't if facts they real facts you can see why the cowboys is the best

Yes that the Dallas Cowboys have beaten the steelers have beaten them but, we are debating the cowboys are the best franchise in the league.

As I said before the more super bowls wins a team has won would make them the best franchise. The cowboys are tied with the most super bowl wins meaning they are tied for being the best franchise not being the best franchise!!

So as i have showed the Cowboys are not the best franchise
