History

1980 DALLAS COWBOYS

 MILESTONES
  • Staubach Retires - At a press conference at Texas Stadium on March 31, quarterback Roger Staubach announced his retirement after 11 record-breaking years with the Cowboys. Staubach held all major Cowboys' passing records and was the all-time leading NFL passer.
  • Lilly Enters Hall of Fame - Bob Lilly, a seven-time All-Pro defensive tackle in his 14-year career with the Cowboys from 1961-74, became the first Cowboys' player to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Enshrined along with Lilly on Aug. 2 at Canton, Ohio, were Herb Adderley, who played for the Cowboys from 1970-71, Jim Otto and Deacon Jones.
  • Fifteen Straight Winning Seasons - Behind new starting quarterback Danny White, the Cowboys rolled to their 15th consecutive winning season with a surprising 12-4 record, tied for best in the league with Philadelphia and Atlanta. The Cowboys lost the NFC East title to Philadelphia on a tie-breaker, but entered the playoffs for the 14th time in 15 years, this time as a wild card team. The Cowboys beat Los Angeles 34-13 at Texas Stadium in the NFC Wild Card Game and rallied past the Falcons at Atlanta 30-27 to advance to the NFC Championship Game at Philadelphia. But the Cowboys lost 20-7 in their bid for a sixth Super Bowl appearance.
  • Landry's 200th Victory - Tom Landry joined George Halas and Curly Lambeau as the only coaches with 200 NFL victories when the Cowboys beat Los Angeles 34-13 on Dec. 28 at Texas Stadium in the NFC Wild Card Game, raising Landry's record to 200-119-6, counting regular season and playoff games.
