Speaking of the National Football League...

2014 Super Bowl logo features a snowflake, GW Bridge
 
Check out the newly-released logo for Superbowl XLVIII to be played at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey in 2014!  Because this will be the first-ever outdoor Superbowl scheduled at a cold-weather site, they've added a snowflake to the logo, what with the possibility that we may finally witness a Superbowl played in the snow!
 
Today, of course, the name "Superbowl" is synonymous with "NFL Championship Game," but that wasn't always the case!  In fact, prior to 1971, the NFL Championship game was something entirely different, and it was often played in miserably cold weather (who can ever forget the infamous "Ice Bowl" NFL Championship game in '68 between Dallas & Green Bay?)

  Anon, that Ice Bowl Winner ( Green Bay ) did in fact win the National Football LEAGUE but they still had to play the Oakland Raiders of THE American Football League in the second SB game played , the first one was the previous year and that game was also won by Green Bay, which won the first two SB's.

 

The Packers advanced to Super Bowl II, which was still known as the "AFL-NFL World Championship Game." Green Bay clobbered the AFL Champion Oakland Raiders 33-14, giving them the first two Super Bowls in league history. Lombardi retired in the offseason, leaving the Cowboys and Packers to go in completely different directions. Green Bay fell on hard times and failed to win a single playoff game over the next 25 years; their luck wouldn't change until Brett Favre became their starting quarterback. The Cowboys on the other hand became the elite team in the NFC -- they made the postseason 18 times in 20 years and won a pair of Super Bowls in the 1970's.

That's absolutely right, Sylvester!  What a lot of people don't realize is that the first FOUR Superbowls were NOT NFL Championship games, although that's exactly what the Superbowl would become starting with Superbowl V!

To this day, the New York Jets & Kansas City Chiefs are the ONLY Superbowl champions who have NEVER been NFL champs!  Today, if you win the Superbowl you ARE the champs of the National Football League!

  So much for the " Dream Team " ....

 

  Established in 1933, the Philadelphia Eagles is a well-known Americal football team, whose home stadium is Lincoln Financial Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The team became members of the East Division in the National Football Conference (NFC). This happened after the merger of National Football League (NFL) and American Football League (AFL) in 1970

   The Cowboys are good enough to lose close games, which probably makes them an 8-8 , 9-7 team. In this ERA of salary cap and parity my hats off to the Packers. They seem to be the strongest team in the league again, coming off the last SB win.

 

Defense gashed again but keeps Rams out of end zone

  And what's with the " throw back " uniforms worn in the NFL almost as often as the alternate road jersey. Come on Roger Goodfella , enough with the marketing gimmicks.

Rob Ryan has done a great job with the Cowboys defense, and will keep them in every game. I don't know about Romo, I just don't see him ever taking the Cowboys very far.

   The defense under Ryan played it's ASS off against the best QB in football ( Brady )  and was rewarded with 16 points by the lame offense. Pity.

Pretty amusing that on the same day that the Rangers and Cardinals will be slugging it out in Arlington, you will have the 0-5 Rams going up against the 2-3 Cowboys. It is rather bizarre how the fortunes have changed for three Dallas sports franchises. The Mavericks win the NBA championship in 2011, the Rangers are playing in their second consecutive World Series, while the Cowboys are struggling just to make it to the playoffs.

  AS presently constructed the Cowboys ARE NOT A playoff team. Tony Romo comes under alot of fire but every time he passes he is running for his life and the running game can't get going because again the O-line ain't getting it done. Romo makes big bucks and deserves alot of flack but my goodness prior to game one Jerry in a brilliant move cuts a pro bowler at center and this entire season Romo and the new center are playing like they've never met, total strangers.

  Decent defense. Nothing great, decent. Ware is maybe the best defensive player in the game, Sean Lee is nice and young at LB , came out of that LB factory at Penn St....after that it's journeymen mostly.
