Dallas Cowboys Season Review:

With legendary coach Bill Parcells entering his second season at the helm and following a 10-6 season which saw the Cowboys make the playoffs for the first time in a decade, optimism was very high.  In the off-season, the Cowboys would sign quarterback Vinny Testaverde and trade for disgruntled wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson.

Even with all these additions and a legendary coach the Cowboys would end up disappointing fans with a 6-10 season which landed them 3rd in the NFC east and out of post season play.  The Cowboys spent the entire season with what would be a quarterback controversy and never really got off the ground.

The one bright light was rookie running back Julius Jones who showed some flash of brilliance with a few 150+ yards games.  Although he started the season with an injury after his return fans saw a future with this kid.

 

Dallas Cowboys Highlights:

  • Cowboys sign quarterback Vinny Testaverde wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson
  • in 7 starts Rookie running back Julius Jones rushes for 800 yards
