Know Your Dallas Cowboys: The Blog:
Roy Williams was most certainly not the greatest player to wear #11 for the Cowboys. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
In this update to the series on greatest Dallas Cowboys by their jersey numbers, we focus on numbers 11 through 15.
The most noteworthy update involves #11, worn by wide receiver Roy Williams from 2008 to 2010. The Cowboys gave up a first-round pick in 2009 to acquire Williams, who was supposed to complement Terrell Owens. However, Williams simply could not hold on to the ball consistently and was quickly labeled as a bust.
Danny White received 96% of the votes as the greatest player to wear #11, and Williams did nothing to garner any votes.
(Defensive back Akwasi Owusu-Ansah also wore #11 during the 2011 season, but he played a few more games in 2010 wearing #27.)
#14: Receiver Dwayne Harris joined the Cowboys in 2011 and played in seven games wearing #14. He was used primarily as a returner.
#15: Manual Johnson saw action in two games in 2010, catching one pass for two yards in the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Here is a complete list of players who have worn numbers 11 through 15:
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Last week I did an offseason feature on the Dallas Cowboys, and their top five offensive threats. Now we are changing sides of the ball, and discussing Dallas’ top five defensive players. DeMarco Murray got my number one slot on the offensive end, who will grab those honors on defense? SBRForum.com continues with this series of articles covering Dallas Cowboys, their different...
One of the biggest concerns after the 2011 season was the state of the Cowboys offensive line. On many occasions last season it seemed as though opposing teams were in the Cowboys backfield more than the Cowboys were. Without a solid offensive line the running game suffers which then leads to problems with the passing game. Even with all the moves the Cowboys have made with the line...
Solomon, one of greatest authors of wisdom tidbits in human history, wrote in Proverbs 16:18:
“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”
In a recent interview with Rich Eisen, Troy Aikman made the most poignant statement about the demise of the 1990s Dallas Cowboys dynasty to date. Aikman, like many Cowboys fans, believes that, as great...
Mat McBriar was a Pro Bowler as recently as 2010, but after a down year in 2011, in which he averaged 43.8 yards per punt and 36.7 net yards per punt, and an offseason knee surgery, he remains unsigned. The Cowboys have Chris Jones, a 2nd year player who averaged 42.6 yards per punt last season in 2 starts, but would prefer to resign McBriar according to DallasCowboys.com. If he’s...
Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin helped the Cowboys win three Super Bowls during their Hall of Fame careers. The franchise has one playoff victory since their run in the mid-1990s.
So, who better to ask about the current state of the organization than three of the most popular players to ever wear the Cowboys uniform?
The Triplets, who have each worked as NFL TV analysts...
First-round draft pick Morris Claiborne was hoping he could be on the field for the Dallas Cowboys’ June minicamp, but that apparently won’t happen. Claiborne is recovering from surgery on his left wrist in March and won’t be ready to make his debut until training camp in late July, according to a report on DallasCowboys.com. The cornerback from LSU suffered the injury...
The 1992 Dallas Cowboys were the youngest team in the NFL. They had a punishing and explosive offense and their defense ranked number one in the league. After a 13-3 regular season, the Cowboys went on to defeat the Philadelphia Eagles, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Buffalo Bills to win Super Bowl XXVII. The Cowboys, led by head coach Jimmy Johnson, looked every bit as...
QB Tony Romo (Dallas)
He takes a lot of heat in real life, but Romo is a great fantasy quarterback, possibly underrated, in fact. With the exception of 2010 when he played just 6 games, he’s averaged 30 touchdowns and 13 interceptions and he’s gone over 4100 yards in his last three 16 game seasons.
Projection: 4320 passing yards, 29 passing touchdowns, 11 interceptions, 80 rushing...
The Dallas Cowboys will likely open the 2012 season as underdogs to the New York Giants on September 5. The current line at Betfirms.com is 3.5 points favoring the Giants.
It’s hard to believe, but it has been five years since the Cowboys opened their 2007 season against the Giants at Texas Stadium. Dallas was coming off a playoff season after going 9-7, while the Giants had finished...
One of the last vital pieces in the professional jigsaw puzzle that is the life and times of Terrell Owens is gone. According to the NFL, Owens stated that he and Rosenhaus have “parted ways.”
Should we really have to speculate on how this went down? Rosenhaus is still actively making deals for players such as LeSean McCoy and Yeremiah Bell.
Owens appears to be embarking...
ONE MORE CHANCE
T.O. still hasn't given up his dream of playing in the NFL again. He says on a radio interview that he still has interest in a few teams.
In a weird twist, it now appears as if beggars can be choosers. Terrell Owens, who is coming off of two knee surgeries, and an infamous stint with the UBL Allen Wranglers, has said publicly where he’d like to play football next season – and no, it isn’t playing center for the newly formed World Bikini Football League (although who wouldn't want that job).
I came across this nice little piece on Terrell Owens from the Bay Area Sports Guy. Owens was interviewed by Brandon Tierney and Eric Davis on 95.7 FM “The Game”. It will not air until Monday, but Bay Area Sports Guy received a transcript via email:
Would you have been a better fit with the 49ers (in response to the team taking a chance on Randy Moss):
Owens: “Would I have...
Terrell Owens has made it no secret that he wants to return to the NFL and resume his once proud playing career. The 38-year-old diva who can barely cover his own expenses and child support said that he would love nothing better to resume his career in the Bay Area of California.
Owens would like to either go back to the San Francisco 49ers, where he overstayed his welcome, or start...
