The Cowboys Are No Longer America's Team

Jerry Jones won't be too happy to hear this. According to a poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, the Dallas Cowboys are not the most popular team in the NFL. That distinction now belongs to the Green Bay Packers, and by an overwhelming margin, too. 


This isn't terribly surprising news, especially given Dallas' playoff ineptitude in the past decade. Bandwagon fans across the country are now latching onto Aaron Rodgers and the no longer perfect Packers, just as they had latched onto the Cowboys throughout the 90s. 


Some good news for Jerry, though: according to the poll, the Cowboys are also the league's most hated team. At least there's going to be opinions and ratings when it comes to the Cowboys.
