Only 5 Cowboys make Pro Bowl

Jason Witten
Jay Ratliff
DeMarcus Ware
Leonard Davis
André Gurode

Happy to see Jay Ratliff making his first, that guy never gives up on plays.
I thought Bradie James got robbed, he deserved to be selected over Jon Beason of Carolina.

How about Eli over Romo? I know Tony missed some time, but even missing those games, he still has better numbers than dumb-faced Eli.

lol at the "Only 5" comment. Most teams are lucky to get 3.

Pro Bowl is just a popularity contest. Get over it.

I am just glad TO didn't get in.

I guess he does have something else to be mad at Witten for now.

Don't hate because the Feelers only got three in, not that the three didn't deserve it, James Farrior, James Harrison, Troy Polamalu, those do deserve it.

It's not that I'm hating, or that I'm even going to watch it (I usually don't). It's just mind boggling that we went from 13 to 5 with the exact same roster.

And with that exact same roster their record is worse, so is it a surprise that less made it?

Your comments...
Jon Benson has over 20 more tackles. Yes Bradie James is having a hell of a season but Benson is having a monster season as well. Eli is having a good season as well but doesn't have the melt downs late in the game so I think it is again the right choice.

But the outcome will be the same if they make the playoffs. They will choke.

Maybe, but right now one could argue that the Cowboys have the best defense in the league. This team has switched places with the Giants from last year. The Cowboys were fading at this time last year, and the Giants were picking it up.

How do you figure? I looked at some stats only 2 NFC QBs have thrown more TDs (Brees 28,Warner 26) compared to his 24 and he missed 3 games, and is 8-3 this year.

But how many QBs in the NFC has he really outplayed? He serves the ball up on a silver platter at times and really I don't think that makes you elite.

I'm a big Romo fan, but with him out for the three games and that performance against the Steeler's (3 INT's, fumble), it may be best for his psyche that he wasn't picked this year.

The number of pro bowl players on a team most of the time coincides with the teams overall record at the time. and yes it is a popularity contest.

I just went back and looked at the numbers game by game and really only think Romo has had about 3 good games this year.

Ware and Gurode are the only two that deserve that nod.....Witten is on the fence.

A lot of people are unaware of this. Starting next year the pro bowl will be played BEFORE the Superbowl.

They are excelling. It took your Steeler's 5 turnovers and a "pick 6" to beat them at home!LOL! If the Steelers are the best the AFC has to offer, look for years of NFC dominance...again.

Sorry but I think the Colts are the best in the AFC. After they beat the titans, they will be the best in the AFC.
