Dallas Cowboys Season Review:

Once again the 2010 Dallas Cowboys season was full of expectations and dreams.  The Cowboys were defending NFC East champions and playing in their second season in their magnificent Cowboys Stadium who would be host of Super Bowl XLV which the Cowboys desperately wanted to be participants in.

However these dreams turned to nightmares when the Dallas Cowboys started the season with a 1–7 record which made Wade Phillips the first coach in Cowboys history to be fired during the season.  He was replaced by offensive coordinator Jason Garrett as interim coach and Garrett was able to make the season respectable and bring back some hope.

Things were a too little too late as the cowboys finished the season at 6-10 and were eliminated from playoff contention.  The Super Bowl was played between to arch rivals of the Cowboys, the Steelers and the Packers with the Packers coming out as champions.  Aaron Rogers was named MVP in what was a controversial Super Bowl not because of the game but because of the seating in the new Cowboys Stadium.

Dallas Cowboys Highlights:

  • Wade Phillips became the first coach in Cowboys history to be fired during the season
  • Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett comes interim Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys
  • Super Bowl XLV would be played at Cowboys Stadium (Now AT&T Stadium)
