Dallas Cowboys Jersey Numbers: Updates for Nos. 41 through 45

Terence Newman

Terence Newman did not take the title as the greatest #41.

Here is the update for greatest Dallas Cowboys by their jersey numbers focusing on jersey numbers 41 through 45.

#41

Terence Newman lasted nine seasons in Dallas, but his final year in 2011 was one to forget. He has since moved on to join the Cincinnati Bengals.

Charlie Waters is still the best player to wear #41, though. Waters’ performances in several playoff games alone were better than anything Newman did.

#42

Anthony Henry wore #42 through the 2008 season. He received the most votes in the 2008 poll.

Barry Church has worn it since 2010.

#43

This number had two great players in running back Don Perkins and safety Cliff Harris. Harris received the most votes in the 2008 poll, but Perkins deserved more consideration.

Gerald Sensabaugh has worn the number since 2009. He’s no Cliff Harris.

#44

The Cowboys had a guy named Gronkowski, but it was not the Patriots’ tight end. Dallas signed Chris Gronkowski, a fullback, but he only lasted through part of the 2010 season.

Robert Newhouse remains the greatest to wear #44.

#45

Not many known players have worn #45, which explains why former defensive back Manny Hendrix earned the most votes in 2008. Shaun Chapas wore #45 in three games in 2011. His stats included one run for nine yards.

Blogging impatiently about the Cowboys since 2006. Being a fan since 1977 hasn't required quite as much patience.

    On # 42.  Randy Hughes could have been the best if injuries did not hurt is career. He was coming along to be the FS replacement for Cliff Harris.  Plus, Chris Warren did ok as a back-up for Emmitt Smith and of course, Troy Hambrick–did lead Dallas in rushing for one season.
