HISTORIC MOMENTS: NFL’s 1994 NFC Championship Game

Editors comment: As a reader pointed out, the original title of this post suggested that this NFC Championship lead to the “Making of America’s Team.” In fact, the term “America’s Team” became popular after Bob Ryan (of NFL Films) used it while preparing the Cowboys 1978 season highlight film. Also, Jimmy Johnson’s “How ’bout them Cowboys” quote came after the 1992-1993 NFC Championship Game in San Francisco.

  1. Al, thank you for your comment. You’re absolutely right. The term “America’s Team” became widely used after Bob Ryan (of NFL Films) used it while preparing the Cowboys 1978 season highlight film. Also, Jimmy Johnson’s “How ’bout them Cowboys” quote came after the 1992-1993 NFC Championship Game in San Francisco. Thanks for your input. I’ll edit the post to reflect the corrections.

  2. The Cowboys officially became known as AMERICA’S TEAM in the 70’s (film came out in 1978) and some beleive even before than in the Ice Bowl. Also, Jimmy Johnson said “How ‘Bout Them Cowboys” in the Candlestick locker room January 17, 1993 (1992 NFC Champ Game).
