Legends of the Star – Darren Woodson

Darren Woodson was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys as a converted linebacker in the second round of the 1992 NFL Draft out of Arizona State University.

He played at safety for the Cowboys and was a five time Pro Bowl selection who developed a reputation as an effective run-stopper and was a feared and ferocious hitter. He was leader both on and off the field and was a mentor to many of the younger players, including Roy Williams.

Besides chasing and tackling ball carriers in the secondary, Woodson also was very relentless at chasing down and stopping kick returners on special teams. For many years, Woodson dominated at his position and was a threat to anyone carrying the ball within his range. Many of his tackles were so ferocious that he drew many fines from the NFL during his career.

However, doing all those things for all those years finally took a toll on Woodson’s body. After missing most of the season after having back surgery just before training camp, the hard-hitting safety announced his retirement in December of 2004. It was the end of an era for the Dallas Cowboys. Darren Woodson was the last player left from the 1992, 1993 and 1995 Super Bowl champions and he was also the last player drafted by Jimmy Johnson. His 1,350 tackles are the most-ever in Cowboys history. 

Just the mention of Woodson’s name can still make opposing wide receivers and kickoff returners cringe.

New York Coming to Dallas



Two 2007 season games were announced and both happened to feature New York Teams. The first Sunday night game will be Giants vs. Cowboys in Dallas. It will be broadcast on NBC, Sunday night, Sept. 9 at 7:15pm. The Thanksgiving game will be Jets vs. the Cowboys in Dallas with a 3:15pm kickoff on CBS. Fans will get to see Cowboys running back Julius Jones against his brother, Jets running back Thomas Jones.

They say that New York City is so great they had to name it twice. I say their teams are so bad we’re gonna beat them twice!
