Fans of the Dallas Cowboys are always loud and proud, but this season, they have more reasons than usual to be excited about their team’s potential.
They added wide receiver Brandin Cooks and star cornerback Stephon Gilmore this offseason, and it has made a roster that won 12 games in both of the last two seasons even stronger.
FS1 personality Nick Wright says they now have their best chance of winning the Super Bowl since they last won it all during the 1995 season.
"The Cowboys are in better position right now to make a Super Bowl than any time since The Triplets have been around."

Wright mentioned the excellence of No. 1 wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, an outstanding defense that already had corner Trevon Diggs and All-Pro First-Team pass rusher Micah Parsons, and emerging running back Tony Pollard.
Cooks will give Lamb an excellent WR2, while Gilmore should team up with Diggs to effectively shrink the field and make life difficult for opposing wideouts.
But ultimately, Dallas will go as far as quarterback Dak Prescott takes them.
He has a history of coming up short in big games, especially in the playoffs, and last season, he led the NFL with 15 interceptions despite playing in just 12 games.
When the Cowboys lost in the Divisional round to the San Francisco 49ers in January, he threw two picks and just one touchdown pass.
Wright said that if Prescott doesn’t get the job done this season, it could be the beginning of the end of his time in Big D.
Days ago, the Cowboys traded for QB Trey Lance, and instantly it led to speculation that he could end up being Prescott’s replacement in the near future.
As usual, expectations are running high for them, which means that anything short of a world championship will lead to lots of grumbling among their fan base.NEXT: Trey Lance Shares His Initial Reaction To Cowboys Trade
