Help us celebrate America by having a go at 'America's Team'

Happy birthday, America! In honor of this great nation, here is a countdown of the most embarrassing moments in Cowboys history.

6. Dave Campo's coaching career

The Cowboys have had some of the most storied coaching names in football roaming the sidelines. And they also have had Dave Campo.

5. Leon Lett

You cannot have a list of the most embarrassing Cowboys moments without Mr. Embarrassing Cowboys Moment himself, Leon Lett. And be sure to watch as a Hall of Famer -- who has been begging to be a part of a Pick Six -- weighs in.

4. The draft

Gil Brandt had the Cowboys so far ahead of the curve in terms of scouting and drafting, he kept the team competitive for decades. Jimmy Johnson had some of the greatest drafts in NFL history. And then there is Jerry Jones. He hasn't done any of those things.

3. Tony Romo

The Cowboys have had some of the greatest names in NFL history under center. Roger Staubach. Troy Aikman. Don Meredith. Now even the backup tight end isn't sure that the current starter should be given his job without competing with a journeyman for the gig.

2. Jackie Smith

The Cowboys have had a storied Super Bowl rivalry with the Steelers, meeting three times. But you can't talk about Cowboys-Steelers in the Super Bowl without mentioning one of the biggest drops.

1. The 1979 NFC Divisional Playoffs

The playoffs were not kind to me growing up as a kid. But there is one game that stands out, not only for Los Angeles Rams fans, but, really, for all of America.

Love the Cowboys, hate the Cowboys, let me know what you think by reaching out to me on all of the social media outlets, via Twitter or via Facebook. And be sure to check out the latest Dave Dameshek Football Program, also available on iTunes.
