LEGEND: Bill Belichick has now passed Tom Landry for most postseason wins (21) by an NFL head coach in NFL history! http:/…
QUESTION??? Can you think of any modern day heroes in our culture today? I can remember being a kid and really thinkin the astronauts were bigger than life; in fact, I wanted to be a "frog man" that went out to get them in the space capsule. People we knew that went to Viet Nam; Dallas Cowboys and Tom Landry.these were all heroes to me. Seeing "American Sniper" this weekend reiterated the heroism of our men and women who defend our right to live our lives as free Americans. Who are the heroes today?
3:42 to go and it's 45-7. Wow. This will be the Patriots 8th conference championship and Super Bowl appearance, tying them with Dallas and Pittsburgh for most ever. It is the 7th Super Bowl under the Kraft ownership -- a record for Super Bowls under a single owner. Bill Belichick is now the winningest coach in NFL postseason history with 21 wins, surpassing the legendary Tom Landry, who won 20. This will also be Belichick's 6th Super Bowl appearance, which ties Don Shula for the most all time. Tom Brady won his 20th game as a starting quarterback in 28 starts -- both NFL records. The Super Bowl appearance will be Brady's 6th, which ties him with DL Mike Lodish for most all time. It would be his 6th Super Bowl start (assuming he starts) -- an NFL record. The 6th conference titles is the most by a quarterback in NFL history. You are watching legends. Enjoy this while it lasts. We are lucky. Come see us over the next two weeks as we prepare for Super Bowl XLIX. Unreal. Arizona Bound! Postgame on-field pictu ...
With No. 21, Bill Belichick surpasses Tom Landry as with the winningest head coach in NFL postseason history.
With his 21st career postseason win as a head coach, Bill Belichick will pass Tom Landry (20) as the NFL's all-time leader.
Oh well looks like a,route by My Pats! Also passing Tom Landry for most post season wins. You better do it Belichick✌👍 WE DO WHAT WE DO!!! 😱
Dallas is loosing records as well as games now, all due respect to the late and great Tom Landry. Thanks Jerry Jones
Based on what is happening it looks like it will be a Patriot-Seahawk Superbowl. For my football heads let me ask this question which Iask you to answer. If New England wins does this place Tom Brady in the top five quarterbacks? Will he be considered better than Elway, Marino, Manning? Will he be considered the equal of Joe Montana since he will have Four rings? If New England Wins does this place Bellichick at the top of the all time coaches? Will he be considered better than Halas, Paul Brown, Chuck Knoll, Tom Landry, Bill Walsh, Bill Parcells? Where will he rank? If Seattle wins where will the Seattle defuse rank all time?
I'm not a Cowboy fan...but Bill Belichick is no Tom Landry! Landry wasn't a cheat.
Tom Landry wasn't a cheater. Shouldn't compare Belicheck in the same breath or standing.
Congrats to lil Bill for passing Tom Landry for most play off wins ever by a coach with 21. Best coach in NFL history
My damned phone will not let me respond to the post about best NFL coaches. So, here is my response: Vince Lombardi (Jack Vainisi never got enough credit for helping Lombardi. He brought Paul Hornung, Jim Taylor, Bart Starr, Forrest Gregg, Jim Ringo, Ray Nitschke, Willie Wood, Jerry Kramer to Green Bay. Plus, he traded for Henry Jordan and Willie Davis). Lombardi was the greatest, but Vainisi is forgotten. Paul Brown Don Shula Bill Walsh Tom Landry Bill Belichick Bill Parcells Of course, Tony Dungy will make the HOF earlier than Madden, Hank Stram, Sid Gillman, Parcells, Chuck Noll did.which is a bloody joke! HA! Now, Halas was- great coach, but he was more of an inventor, originator and contributor tovtgevgame as a genius, more so than as.a coach. IMO. Also, Red Grange was a phenom in college, but in the NFL he was not as great of a back as he was at Illinois. He was great early on in the pros, but he had a severe knee injury and became an excellent DB. People act like he was Jim Brown or Barry Sanders i ...
Looks like the Pats Coach will surpass the Late Great Cowboys Coach Tom Landry in playoff wins tonight. They're handling up on the Colts. Landry invented the "Flex Defense" and is an Icon Texas Legend that fell to Lukememia.

Tom Landry & the Hoodie...of course!!! The greatest coaches EVER who coached the greatest teams of their day! BAMM!!!
It's a sad night for me. Tom Landry's playoff record will be broken tonight
Random thoughts as I watch New England trounce the Colts at TRH: The Lions shouldn't even be on the same field as teams like Seattle, N.E. - 11 and 5 notwithstanding. ... I know inclement weather is a nostalgic throwback to the old days. But skilled players should be allowed to showcase their skills - 1 good reason for domes. ... 2day's elite QB's are far superior to yesteryear's. They're playing against physical freaks, and much more sophisticated defenses. ... The NFL will let Belichick wear those atrocious hoodies, but coaches can't wear suit coats anymore?? Tom Landry wouldn't have looked quite so stoic in Nike wear. ... Looks like it mite be a good Super Bowl. Always tuff 4 me to pick against the Patriots. So I won't. Brady joins the immortals after this one. ... Got a place to ride again! Sleep tite. :)
Tia T. Sibley did you just hear Tom Landry, the winnings coach in the NFL name. New England's coach has surpassed his record.
Dear Football Announcers, Do not ever mention Bill Cheatichek in the same sentence as Tom Landry or Make comparisons. Tom Landry was a gentleman and honest.
We're breaking post season records! Tom Landry get out of here with Mr. Jones! Peyton were getting your record next year
No better than Tom landry Americas team Cowboys
Bill will pass Tom Landry for post season wins tonight! 21
Don't even compare Billadick to Tom Landry! Landry never cheated got accused of cheating or was an arrogant mofo like Billadick. IMHO 😁

Tom Landry with that smooth drawl, OJ next to Al Michaels in those blue ABC sportscoats.
My winners for the NFL Divisional playoffs are the Pats and Kam Chancellor. Pats for not giving up after being down 14 points not once, but twice. Bill Belichick tying Tom Landry with 20 playoff victories. Chancellor was a beast big hits and a sweet pick six as well as jumping the snap twice on a field goal attempt that he missed by inches of blocking but didn't count due penalties. The losers are the refs in the Packers v Cowboys and Peyton Manning. I'm not a fan of either team, but that was a catch by Dez, even though according to the rules it's not. Peyton for the 9th time is one and done in the playoffs. Todd Fritz can't be happy with DT with all those drops passes. Also where was the pass rush on Luck, Von Miller and Demarcus Ware?? Just saying. Can't wait for Championship Sunday in the and My early favorites to win are the Seahawks and Patriots.

OK, I USED to be a Dallas Cowboy fan! Haven't been since they fired Tom Landry! That being said: "The LIONS GOT ROBBED!" Romo was playing as he just came out of pop warner, sacked consecutive times, he threw like a baby (girls throw better than that!) and then that erroneous pass interference "not" call! I'm so disgusted! But, looking forward to Saturday when the Panthers brave Seattle! Go Hawks! The Boom! 12th man!
na it was 1967 lol. Tom Landry vs Vince Lombardi
I used to love 'em, but Cowboys aren't America's team anymore. God bless Tom Landry & Dandy Don, but today--GO LIONS!!!
Anyone remember when Tom Landry switched QBs on every play? Looks like Lou is a fan of that strategy.
You think Red Auerbach or Tom Landry concerned themselves with sweaters and branding?
you're wrong: if Tom Landry and Paul Brown had a child that was raised by Bill Walsh it would be Chip Kelly!!
Really, NFL Network? Tom Landry as Dallas Cowboy of all-time? Top-10 Cowboys list w/out Bob Hayes? Arrogance shines bright!
Don't be impulsive about trying to fix the 49ers! Jim Harbaugh has the right stuff! He just needs the time to build his empire. Look at how long Tom Landry was with the Cowboys. Landry turned them into America's team. Jim will get it done! Stay the course Jed!
I ask Bill Bates who was his favorite Cowboys coach he played for, Tom Landry or Jimmy Johnson? He answered Barry Switzer.
Tony Dorsett, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith and coaches Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson impress the cheerleaders😊
yea I'm at Glen Mills bout to Tom Landry this program
I grew up in Waco used to go see Staubach Dorsett Pearson and Tom Landry regularly as a kid. Always a Cowboys fan
I hear 'experts' on ESPN and NFL Network give their opinions on the biggest rivalry in the NFL. Some say Pittsburgh/Baltimore, some say Green Bay/Chicago, others say Oakland/Kansas City, or 49ers/Seahawks. But to me it is and has always been Washington/Dallas. It ramped up in the early 1970's when George Allen came over from the Rams and coached against Tom Landry and the Cowboys. How could you forget the 1972 NFC Championship Game at RFK when the Redskins trounced the Cowboys 26 to 3 for a Super Bowl trip? Or the 1974 Thanksgiving Day game when Clint 'The Mad Bomber' Longley came off the bench after starter Roger Staubach was injured and threw two TD passes to beat the Redskins? How about the 1979 game at Texas Stadium when Staubach brought the Cowboys from 13 down in the 4th quarter to beat the Redskins(and break my heart again)? Or my favorite, the NFC Championship following the strike-shortened 1982 season when Dexter Manley deflected a Gary Hogeboom pass and Darryl Grant ran it into the end-zone for ...
Jason Garrett is now the 4th winningest head coach in franchise history, behind Barry Switzer, Jimmy Johnson and Tom Landry.
emmit smith roger stauback dallas clark even irving Tom Landry top 10 maybe btw Romo is an ***
moose is probably right. There was still a lot of animosity towards Jerry Jones because of Tom Landry.
I'm not really a big football fan. I grew up in the era of the Roger Staubach Cowboys - a cool team with some cool players, and Mr. Cool himself, Tom Landry, as the coach. Since then, I haven't really cared that much. But today's fun history story is about a football game. Specifically, it's the biggest blowout I've ever heard or read about - in any sport anywhere. On this date (October 7) in the year 1916, Georgia Tech beat Cumberland College... and you won't believe the score. There have been some pretty big blowouts in football history. I found records of a game in 1929 where the USC Trojans beat the UCLA Bruins 76-0. In 1949, Wyoming beat Northern Colorado 103-0. 1968 was a pretty good year for blowouts: Houston beat Tulsa 100-6, and North Park University beat North Central College 104-32. But this Georgia Tech / Cumberland College game was in a completely different league. The final score was 222-0! There is some interesting background information... During the previous baseball season - Spring 1915 ...
My two favorite coaches are Bear Bryant and Tom Landry..

1989 - One semester remaining until graduation and completion of one of the most significant milestones in our lives. Although joy was experienced in preparations for life after high school as well as events such as the Berlin Wall coming down, the end of the Cold War and Colin Powell being appointed as the Joint Chief of Staff, there was also sadness through the loss of comedian Lucille Ball, bullrider Lane Frost and the two Nevada youth who listened too closely to the Judas Priest album "Stained Class".

Griese Proved Skeptics Wrong On Way To Pro Hall Of Fame By Cooper Rollow Chicago Tribune CUTLINE: BOB GRIESE, MIAMI'S BESPECTACLED QUARTERBACK, SCRAMBLES OUT OF A CRUMPLING POCKET AGAINST THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS IN 1977. CUTLINE: TOM LANDRY: COWBOY COACH A smallish, injury-prone quarterback who was legally blind, drank milkshakes while his teammates were drinking beer and threw passes only when necessary has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Bob Griese, who led the Miami Dolphins to nine winning seasons and victories in Super Bowls VII and VIII, was enshrined yesterday in Canton, Ohio, with Tom Landry, Franco Harris, Jack Lambert, Buck Buchanan, Ted Hendricks and Bob St. Clair. Griese, who became famous as the first pro quarterback to wear glasses and for his poise in leading a classic ball-control offense, was elected to the Hall last January, exactly one decade after his retirement as a player. He had a remarkable 14-year Dolphin career in which he survived frequent injuries. ``What does a ...

Let me just start by saying this is gonna be a very long year..I'm so glad by bro Zach Lawrence got me playing fantasy football for really the first time ever to take my mind off of my depressing team even for a minute. My favorite team..the team I grew up cheering for since I was old enough to watch..the team once coached by Tom Landry then Jimmy Johnson..the team that use to represent a winner as America's Team with Hall of Famers and ultimate champions like Roger Staubach, Randy White, Calvin Hill, Ed Too Tall Jones, Tony Dorsett, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith, Moose Johnston and Jay Novacek, Larry Allen and Charles Haley..Darren Woodson and Deion Sanders..just to name a a JOKE! A flat out JOKE!! Jerry Jones has turned our of the proudest franchise's in all of sports..into a complete joke. A team that gets outnumbered by 49er fans..or maybe it just seemed that way because their was nothing to cheer home in our opener in our new monstrosity of a home "Jerry Wor ...

DALLAS, TX-August 07, 2014. News Flash Just finished reading an article about the state of Texas vs Dallas Cowboys. Since the Dallas Cowboys have always considered themselves "America's Team". The state of Texas is asking all Americans to donate $1.00 to the "Buy Out Jerry Jones Fund", so they can get rid of the owner, bring Tom Landry back from the Super Bowl in the sky, and return the Cowboys to the super dominate team that they once thought they were. So far, they have raised 0 dollars. Cause everyone knows, Tom Landry will not leave his special place, the Zombie Apocalypse will reclaim the owner, and the Dallas Cowboys have never been worth 2 cents, much less a dollar. This will be the year of The Washington Redskins!

Today's selection -- from The Last Cowboy by Mark Ribowsky. In 1942, future hall of fame football coach Tom Landry was an eighteen-year-old attending college. His older brother Robert had enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps and was serving as a bomber pilot in World War II. (Tom would later serve as a bomber pilot as well.) Three years older than Tom, Robert was the golden boy -- outgoing and magnetic. Tom was more reserved, and worshipped his older brother: "Then, with the 1942 season in full bloom and [Tom] Landry moving up on the [University of Texas] jayvee depth chart, a bitter wind came blowing in from across the Atlantic, ... ending ... his cloistered existence and tearing out a piece of his heart forever. "On an early November day that year, with Thanksgiving a few weeks away, a special-delivery letter reached [Tom's father] Ray Landry down in [his hometown of] Mission, Texas. As soon as he took it from the messenger and saw 'War Department: The Adjutant General's Office' on the masthead -- a head ...

Some random shots from our Thursday Morning Prayer Breakfast at Harbor Hills, with special guest speaker Coach Gene Stallings offering words of inspiration and encouragement. Along with his numerous humanitarian achievements and awards, Coach Stallings was a member of Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant's "Junction Boys" who were immortalized in a movie about their team’s transformation, and he was the Assistant Coach for the Dallas Cowboys under Tom Landry during their Super Bowl XII victory. Joining Coach Stallings this morning’s breakfast were Father Tom Trees, the Rector for St. James Episcopal Church in Leesburg, giving the opening blessing, and Pastor Sidney Brock, the Lead Pastor of the Heritage Community Church in Fruitland Park wrapping up the morning with some final thoughts.
Just finished watching the movie Black Sunday about a hijacked Goodyear blimp with a bomb crashing into the stadium of the 1979 Super Bowl. ( my worst nightmare ). The game was between Cowboys and Steelers. Used the real cowboys showed Tom Landry, Roger Staubach, Golden Richards had forgotten about him, crazy Ray and all the old school,Cowboys. Very cool
Hearing telling the stories of Tom Landry & Roger Staubach in the is priceless...tune in now to
Momma memory # 2 : the very first football game i ever watched, was with my mom. Super Bowl XXVII, The Dallas Cowboys vs. the Buffalo Bills in which the Cowboys won 52-17. i remember us watching that game on one of those old floor wood cabinet type tv's. Most of the time it's the dad and son that share a love of sports together, for me it was me and momma. My momma was a cowboy's fan, just like her father was, i'm not lying when i say i came out the womb with a blue star on my chest. We watched 2 more cowboy Super Bowls after that and it's memories i'll have, of cheering for the 'boys on sundays and in Super Bowls, of her telling me about Roger Staubach and Tom Landry and cowboy's of her time. sharing something that she shared with her dad that i now share with my children who were named after the cowboys. i got to watch one last game with my mother before she passed, it was a losing effort to the redskins on thanksgiving, she wasn't awake much for the game but it was still a good memory for me.

Currently weeping right now as I watch Tom Landry A Football Life will the Cowboys ever be that dominate
I can't believe they're destroying Tom Landry stadiums awesome natural grass.. Turf only means more injuries and turf toe! 👎😔
Everyone who is a King Of The Hill fan knows Mike Judge would often throw out things in the show to "hint" where Arlen was (or not)...once he showed it in Central Texas but said the Mexican border was 4 hours away (MAYBE from San Antonio)...Or Houston was 3 hours away (and Dallas was too!! but Dallas is 3 hours from Houston)..also showed a 409 area code number (555) on the side of a Strickland Propane truck..409 NPA is Galveston and SE Texas (Beaumont area)..however, CW network just showed an episode where they were listening to a Tom Landry Middle School football game.on 740!!! really?? KTRH?? At least they could have shown a Class C or ex-band frequency :)
Ohh Tom Landrys hat And it's Herman's dry cleaning best wishes Tom Landry.. Why don't you buy it?? I can't buy that...only management type guys on big salaries like me can afford things like that. Huh guys like me.I'm a guy like me.
Mission Police are investigating a bank robbery that happened today at the Inter National Bank on 714 Tom Landry when a 40 year old unidentified man went inside the bank carrying a Whataburger cup and ordered everyone to the ground. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money.
The firing of Tom Landry n Jimmy Johnson, retirement of Aikman and Smith = the saddest days of the Cowboys
Seriously, who's the coach in the buffalo wild wings commercial. I would say Tom Landry if he were alive.
Best parallel I can think of is Tom Landry, the legendary former coach of the Dallas Cowboys
Parents should judge kids, not just coaches By Dan Bauer Legendary coach Tom Landry said, "A coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear, who has you see what you don't want to see, s
love it! My great uncle Tom Landry was a coach and I still dislike the Cowboys
As a Cowboys head coach I honestly put Jimmy Johnson ahead of Tom Landry it took Johnson 4 years to do what Landry did in 11 seasons and that's win a Super Bowl and Johnson also repeated it took Landry 6 years to even win another Super Bowl. I know Landry coached in 5 but 2 wins and 29 years of coaching for them doesn't sound like Mount Rushmore of coaching to me I respect everything Tom Landry did for the game of football but if you coach a team for 29 years and only win 2 Super Bowls??? That's only top 5 to me with or at it's highest would only be for his longevity.
Jerry Jones: "What's the big deal with Coach Cal & the 'one-and-done' thing. That's longer than Tom Landry lasted after I bought the team."
Perhaps the toughest call for a coach is weighing what is best for an individual against what is best for the team. – Tom Landry
Tom Landry was the best football coach there ever was..
A Coach.. tells u what u don't want to hear. Who has u see what u don't want to see, so u can be what u always knew u could be-Tom Landry
how can Jerry Jones fire Tom Landry and Jimmie Johnson yet he won't fire Jason Garrett?
It was Jimmie Johnson's team he ran I don't know what was Jerry worst Idea, fire Jimmie or fire Tom Landry
Wish I could've been back home today to honor this man: Dale Smith, retiring after 38 years as the pastor of Colleyville Presbyterian Church in Texas. (Photo: Jonathan E. Smith) The church has never had another senior pastor. That's a remarkable tenure anywhere, but especially in a church (and even 9 years longer than Tom Landry was "the only head coach the Dallas Cowboys have ever had"). Wonderful guy, a serious pastor with a great sense of humor. I was never formally part of his flock, but he devoted a lot of time to me, turned me on to mind-bending theology, and showed great hospitality. Just before Christmas one year, I popped up unannounced at his house on a cold Saturday night. I had a gift and was wearing a green Santa hat with the point straight up. He met me at the door in an apron and holding a big knife. He was cooking for his wife, as he always did on Saturdays, and invited me in and insisted I stay. I did. There sat the *three* of us for a romantic candlelight dinner. It felt awkward at first ...
"As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us." --Psalm 103:12 When a reporter once asked former Cowboys running back Walt Garrison if he had ever seen legendary Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry smile, he replied, "No, but I was only there nine years." The first few years Landry coached in Dallas, he had little to smile about. The new Cowboys expansion team barely won a game and, shortly after his arrival, the country suffered a tragic blow when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The dark cloud of Kennedy's assassination would hang over Dallas for years. It was an open wound that didn't seem to heal. But this all changed when Landry led the Dallas Cowboys to their first Super Bowl win in 1972. The city that was once known as the city that killed JFK became the home of the Super Bowl champions, the Dallas Cowboys! As I thought about this story, it made me wonder, do you ever feel like you have a dark cloud hanging over your life? Is there something in your p ...
I want the Telly Savalas/Tom Landry lovechild on the BW3 commercials to be feasted on by walkers. With plenty of sauce.
Good day FB peeps. 2 things I have to say and I'm OUT: Isn't this missing Malayasian airliner beginning to have an weird resemblence to the ABC drama, LOST? And wondering WHY the Cowboys picked up Brandon Weeden. In just 20 starts he is 5-15. This kid was receiving DEATH THREATS as the QB for Cleveland Browns. What EXACTLY is his role with the COWBOYS. And I'll add a 3rd thing.why is it that OWNER Jerry Jones was SO quick to fire and get rid of LEGENDARY COWBOYS COACH Tom Landry, but can't find it in his heart to GET RID OF and FIRE Jason Garrett? Have a GREAT day everyone!
I remember what Tom Landry, the former Dallas Cowboy said, " When you are winning you are teaching, when you are losing, you are learning."
I did not know John Elway was GM for the Broncos. Explains a lot. I think Drew Pearson or Calvin Hill would make an excellent GM for Dallas. There are too many decision-makers for Dallas who know absolutely nothing about strategically building a winning team. Tex Shram and Tom Landry had a gift for doing so. Jerry Jones unfortunately, does not have that gift. A good business man surrounds himself with talented people. Why does he get this in every area accept where the Cowboys are concerned?
.on Tom Landry's final hours with the and the importance of Lonesome Dove:

I did not realize Jerry Jones fired Tom Landry the day after he bought the team.
Jerry Jones of Dallas says he firing Tom Landry
Jerry Jones firing Tom Landry for Jimmy Johnson is overrated. Jerry Jones also fired maybe the best GM in NFL history for himself.
Jerry Jones fired Tom Landry the second he bought the Cowboys. That mentality shows you why their success is meh.
25 years after purchasing the Jerry Jones says he shouldn't have been so quick to fire Tom Landry.
can't believe it's been 25 years. Jerry Jones talks Tom Landry firing
Even if Jerry Jones wanted to start over with his roster, the Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager says it's not an option. "You can't do what I did in 1989 because of the contracts and cap," Jones said Monday at the NFL scouting combine. "The system automatically creates about a third turnover, but it also creates contractually for clubs a situation where you cannot just strip it. You couldn't even field a team with the hits against your cap by canceling the contracts." When Jones bought the franchise 25 years ago Tuesday, the team was a mess. The Cowboys were coming off three straight losing seasons after decades of excellence under coach Tom Landry and needing an injection of talent. Dallas used its best asset, Herschel Walker, in a trade that remade the franchise. The Cowboys also had the No. 1 pick in the draft and selected quarterback Troy Aikman. By the 1992 season, Dallas won the first of three Super Bowls in four years. Jones also did not have to worry about a salary cap in 1989. The Cowboys ...

SHOCKED: 1961. Hank Stram (Coach, Dallas Texans) is trying to convince Tom Landry (Coach, Dallas Cowboys) to take a closer look at the zone defense ... and this a decade before Landry abandons 'keys' and dumbs down his system and before Lamar Hunt moves the Dallas Texans to Kansas City. The groomed, quaffed talking heads on ESPN tell us some college hack invented zone in "the rockin' 90's". All the strict defensive backfields, 3-4 / 4-3 were created by old AFL / NFL head coaches - back when football was a strategic, team sport and not an emotive, song-and-dance spectacle. Zone was created as early as 1949 when Tom Landry played backfield with the Giants (Lombardi was at West Point) and created the "Landry Defense" (comment, per Frank Gifford, THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED).
In the history of the New York Football Giants, it was a big mistake not promoting one-time assistants Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry or Bill Belichick to head coach. John Fox: not so much. Denver was actually less prepared than Jim Fasshole had the NYFG against the Ravens.
