The Dallas Cowboys have a lot to prove this season. After a disappointing run over the past few years, the Cowboys are expected to be top contenders this year.

It appears this is the story every season, but this time there is a different feeling in Dallas. However, one NFL analyst couldn’t help but have fun at the expense of the Dallas Cowboys and their ‘perennial contenders’ status.

NFL analyst Mike Greenberg spoke on ESPN today about the Dallas Cowboys. He jokingly remarked that the Cowboys are the only team that can have a negative record the previous season and not find any major playoff success for a quarter-century – but would still be considered one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl the very next season.

“The Dallas Cowboys are the only team that could be 6-10, and not have been in a conference championship game in 25 years, and we’d say they’re in their ‘Super Bowl window.'”

It was an apt remark about the Cowboys, despite how funny it was. The Cowboys have struggled to find any kind of post-season success in a long time.

“Furthermore, they are constantly underperforming during the regular season as well. Last year was a good example of why the Cowboys still shouldn’t be considered favorites to win the Super Bowl title anytime soon.

Dallas Cowboys under pressure to perform

Perhaps this pressure comes from being America’s team. In their prime, the Cowboys dominated the league. They were entrenched in the greatest rivalry in NFL history, with the San Francisco 49ers.

However, the Cowboys have fallen to the wayside in recent years, failing to garner any success. But next season is a significant target for the historic franchise.

Last year, the Cowboys suffered a myriad of injuries. Most notable of these was Dak Prescott, who missed most of the season.

However, the Cowboys have re-signed Prescott, and he is due to return next season. They have already begun making moves to surround Prescott with better players. But they will need a lot more in order to attain true success in the NFC this year.
