I was looking over the history of the Super Bowl, getting geared up for the big game… and I noticed something I hadn’t noticed before. People like to talk about how the Steelers were the most dominant team in the 1970’s, and certainly that’s true… but why doesn’t anyone ever talk about the Cowboys? I didn’t know they had so many appearances.
They appeared in the Super Bowl in 1970, won it in 1971, appeared in 1975, won it in 1977, and appeared in it in 1978.
Now, I’m sure if they’d won more than two of their five appearances, people might talk about them more, but come on… I think appearing in the big game 5 times in 9 years deserves a little credit. Especially considering two of the losses came against the Steelers (75 and 78).
