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.

    Cowboys is proving why he's one of the league's best as well. Despite playing with four different quarterbacks, Cooper has been as consistent as ever. He's caught 82 balls for 952 yards and 5 touchdowns, ready to put together another 1,000 yard season in spite of his play. Amidst Quarterback Turnover Amari Cooper Proves His Worth

    Outside of those two, well, yeah. Not a lot of “snubs” to be mad about.

    Once Pro Bowlers in their own right, linebackers and have each fallen off a cliff the last two seasons. They look lost, and I'm not sure the Cowboys will ever see the 2018 versions of either them ever again.

    was once a regular in the league's All Star Game, but Elliott hasn't had the same burst this season. He's playing behind a makeshift for sure, but Elliott himself has struggled plenty with fumbles on his own.

    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.

    But if the Cowboys can get healthy in the and make a few on the defensive side of the ball, they should be right back to the postseason in 2021. Part of that due to the rest of the , and the rest due to the type of talent they currently have sitting on .

    I agree with the players you chose as snubs for the Pro Bowl, but I think Zack Martin was a Pro Bowl snub too!! He did miss a few games with injuries, and he was playing out of position for a few games too, but he was still playing at a Pro Bowl level when he was playing!!


    Im a cowboys fan. I Don’t care about snubs the team collectively stinks. Also I hate that every offseason the cowboys are built up to be super bowl contenders, now we’re not even through the 2021 season and already the cowboys should be right back to the postseason next year? Really? Who’s gonna be QB? If I’m Dak I’m not playin for Jerry next year cuz Jerry don’t deserve him. But yea definitely a lock for the playoffs next year always
