Not even close.
Saddest day was when Tom Landry died.
It was a sad day, but I can think of many worse days in Cowboys history.
Irvin had had a great career. And that injury didn't prevent him from living a normal life today. It's not like he was paralyzed at the beginning or in the middle of a great career. It was an injury that came at the end of a great career and doesn't affect him much today.
Never seen that play before. Hit didn't even look that bad, sad that a play like that is what caused a great career to end. Sad thing is I've seen a lot more vicious hits then that in the NFL and the player walks away uninjured.
For me, the saddest day was when Jimmy Johnson left/was fired. I knew it was the end of an era.
Still remember it like it was yesterday, and it's why to this day I hate the Iggles and their fans with a passion!
Off the field the death of Landry. On the field I have to think about.
That loss to the Colts in SB 5 was pretty sad too. Never should have happened. Franchise should be at 6 Lombardi's now.
Not only sad but another disgusting display from the worst fan base in the world. Somebody even threw a cup of beer at him as he was going through the tunnel.
Side note. When reading this thread I started exploring Irvin's stats and then ended up expanding my search to look at the stats of all the WRs drafted with Irvin in 1988. By my quick count the WRs in that class ended up with at least (I didn't count anybody I never heard of or remember):
Here are the top 14 WRs from the 1988 draft class in terms of stats:
Sad but not the saddest... by far.
I would say it was the loss to the expansion Texans... No... that was the most pathetic.
Saddest football play was "The Catch" game. Still makes me sick to my stomach thinking about it. Sad days off the field were Tex and Coach Landry passing and Roger retiring.
Super bowl 5 and 13.
Ice Bowl and V then 13. The Catch game. 94 CC game SF. There were some other notables like the two losses to the Browns in the late 60s and the loss to the Rams and an inferior team.
Saddest day is when the cowboys lost that playoff game to the cardinals.
That was pretty much the end of Aikman's career
you obviously aren't old enough to remember the Super Bowl losses, multiply this by 1,000,000. I can't even comprehend the agony of Buffalo Bills' fans.
Forgot about the ice bowl. You are right.
