This is a meaningless title, of course--one that was born of the need for a snappy title to an NFL Films feature--but one that crawls under the skin of Cowboys-haters around the country, Redskins and Eagles fans mostly, causing them to stand on soapboxes and yell frenetically through rolled up newspapers.
Being America's Team, however, isn't necessarily a reflection of on-field proficiency, at least, not as far as those surveyed are concerned; when asked who would win the Super Bowl this year, fans ranked Pittsburgh first, with almost twenty percent of the vote; New England came in second with seventeen percent.
Dallas garnered a lowly six percent of the vote in that regard.
