Know Your 1992 Dallas Cowboys: A New Series

Hard to believe, but this year marks the 25th anniversary of the Dallas Cowboys’ Super Bowl season in 1992. The 2016 season was exciting, and 2017 season looks promising, but this blog is really about the history of the Cowboys.

So this post starts a new series– remembering the 1992 Cowboys. (It certainly helps that highlights of every game from the 1992 season are available on YouTube.)

We’ll begin with the news from the week of May 4, 1992:

May 4, 1992

  • Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones was appointed to the NFL’s competition committee. According to Dallas Morning News columnist Randy Galloway, “In the NFL, that’s the same as saying, “You’re in . . . you’ve arrived.’ And most of all, “you’re respected by your peers.'”
  • (Also on May 4, 1992 – North Korea agreed to provide a list of its nuclear sites. Some things don’t change…)

May 5, 1992

  • The Cowboys announced that Air Force fighter pilot Chad Hennings would join the team later in the month. Dallas had selected Hennings with a 11th-round pick in 1988, but he had to serve four years in the Air Force. (Fort Worth Star Telegram)
  • It appeared the Cowboys would have a rough December schedule according to the new NFL schedule. Dallas would have to travel to Denver, Washington, and Atlanta in the final month of the year. (FWST)
  • The Cowboys would open the season with the Washington Redskins, marking the fifth time since 1980 that the teams would play during week 1. The Cowboys were scheduled to play three Monday Night Football games, the most since 1987. (DMN)
