About The Book

The Dallas Cowboys were dubbed America’s Team nearly forty years ago, and the label has stuck in the minds and hearts of football fans to this day.

Facing America’s Team takes you onto the field to see what it was like to take on Bob Lilly, Roger Staubach, Tony Dorsett, Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman, and the other legends who captured five Super Bowl titles while building the legacy of America’s Team.

Eighty noted Dallas foes share their stories about the Cowboys’ greatest rivals, biggest games, and most memorable plays. You will hear from Hall of Famers and rivals, including:
• Jerry Rice
• “Mean Joe” Greene
• Jack Youngblood
• Joe Theismann
• Randall Cunningham
• Aeneas Williams
• Paul Warfield
• Ken Houston
• Jackie Smith
• Conrad Dobler
• And many more!

With eight Super Bowl appearances under their belt and a thirty-year run of success unmatched by any NFL team, the Cowboys are one of the best-known franchises worldwide—and for good reason. This book is the perfect gift for fans of one of the most successful organizations in sports history.

"I was blessed to be part of one of the most powerful offenses in NFL history,
and I love reliving those great moments. These stories and memories from my
opponents really bring it all back--but from an entirely different perspective. Facing America's Team is a fun read for anybody who has been part of the special history of the Dallas Cowboys, whether you were on the field or among the great fans who cheered us to victory."
