Description

Five Super Bowl titles, 13 Hall of Famers, and a litany of legendary players, characters, and games later, the Dallas Cowboys franchise has cemented itself among the most successful in all of sports and, with a fan base that extends all over the world, among the most well known. Legends of the Dallas Cowboys takes an in-depth look at some of the legends who have shaped the Cowboys' identity, beginning with Tom Landry, the man who was hired before Murchison had been awarded a team and who is still the franchise's enduring image. Also included is Tex Schramm, under whom the Cowboys had 20 straight winning seasons and who is considered the most forward-thinking NFL executive ever, as well as Randy White, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bob Lilly, Lee Roy Jordan, Mel Renfro, and more. Also included are innovators like Bob Hayes, who forced the creation of the zone defense, and Michael Irvin and Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson, who forced the creation of behavioral clauses in contracts. Each of the legends played his own unique role in shaping the lore of one of sports' greatest franchises, a franchise that began humbly on a winter day in Miami and is now a model of success.
