No Need To Panic Over Cowboys’ Lack Of Pro Bowlers

For the first time since the disastrous 1-15 1989 season, the have zero Pro Bowlers.


Not a single Dallas Cowboy was deemed worthy of the by the fans, as the team has struggled mightily in a disappointing season. Now sitting at 5-9 and somehow still alive in the division race, the Cowboys lack of Pro Bowlers felt a bit like a gut punch to some of the team's remaining stars.

Despite the terrible team season, there were still obvious snubs.

, for example, is in the midst of a fantastic season. Sure the sack totals haven't been there, but Lawrence has become the single best defender against the run in all of football. Plus, he's still a damn good pass rusher, even without the eye-popping sack stats.

But the real reason the Cowboys have this embarrassing “no Pro Bowlers” news hitting their doorstep is their . Arguably four of the team's best five or six players have all missed significant time this season: , , , and . With those four healthy this team becomes loaded with “Pro Bowlers,” and is likely running away with the East.

I get it. It's looked really bad at points this year.
