The Dallas Cowboys are on the brink of another NFL Team Record. The Cowboys currently have 12 NFL Team records in their illustrious history. They are in good position to win another division title which has been few and far between in recent years. Dallas is chasing a milestone thats been evading them the last 12 years. No I am not talking about a playoff win. The Cowboys are chasing the older dinosaur franchises of the National Football League like the Giants, Packers, Bears, Browns and Steelers for the most division titles in the history of the NFL. Here are the leaders and the years the teams won their respective divisions as well as the amount of years the team has existed........
Team First Season Division Titles Years
Giants 1925 22 1927, 33,34,35,38,39,41,44,
90,97,00,05 & 08
Packers 1921 21 1929,30,31,36,38,39,44,60,

Other teams behind are Niners 1950, 17 Div. Titles, Rams 1946, 17 Div. Titles, Raiders 1960, 16 Div. Titles, Vikings 1961, 16 Div. Titles, Dolphins 1966, 13 Div. Titles, and Redskins 1937, 12 Div. Titles.
You may ask what is the big deal, well its this fact. The Giants have been a franchise for 35 more years then the Cowboys. The Packers are 39 years older and the Bears are also 39 years older. The Steelers are 27 years older then Dallas. The Cowboys are winners. They are the most consistant winning franchise in all pro football history. They have never had a long spell of losing like these other teams have. The Giants once went 23 years without a division title, the Bears went 22 years without one, the Steelers went an incredible 38 years before winning their first division title, the Browns haven't won division title since 1989, the Skins have won one div. title since 91.
The Dallas Cowboys will win their division title this year and next year they'll tie an 85 year old franchise with 22 Division Titles. Thats right they'll have another record in NFL history. The Cowboys success is incredible.

With a fifth straight winning season on its way in 2009, there is more success waiting for Cowboy fans to enjoy. Amazing how the media tries to make our owner out to be an idiot and everything is wrong with the team but winning remains a common thing in Big D year after year after year, after year!!!! lol NFL FILMS said it best "Like A Mighty River"
