Dallas Cowboys Season Review:

Welcome to Jerry’s World.  The 2009 season marked the 50th season of the Dallas Cowboys Football Club.  This was celebrated by the official opening of the 1.5 billion dollars Cowboys Stadium (Later to become AT&T Stadium).  Known to many as Jerry’s world for his vision of making this stadium the entertainment Mecca of the world.

All and all the Cowboys had a solid regular season under head coach Wade Philipps but at the same time critical player and coach errors caused them to miss opportunities in big games.  On March 4, 2009, the Cowboys cut Terrell Owens, a five-time All-Pro wide receiver who ranks second in NFL history in career touchdowns but players like Miles Austin replaced him well.

Cowboys stadium was definitely, the star attraction of the season with everybody showing awe when they stepped in.  This did not result in more wins by the Cowboys but never the less it took a lot of the usual pressure off the team and they seem to respond with a decent effort.  The cowboys lost to the Vikings in the divisional round to end their season.

Dallas Cowboys Highlights:

  • 50th anniversary for the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League
  • Grand opening of the Majestic Cowboys Stadium (now AT&T Stadium)
  • Terrell Owens released by the Cowboys
  • Scouting assistant Rich Behm, was left paralyzed from the waist down after his spine was severed in the Cowboys air-supported roof practice field (a tent-like structure) collapsed during a storm that turned into a microburst.
