Aldon Smith plays DE technically.
if they need an 007 agent ....we have one. Moore..........Sterling Moore.:laugh1:
I don't think I can since I don't watch every other team as close as I do the Cowboys. But I know that Spencer is out playing Ware, and it's not even close IMHO. Forget the Sacks, how many does Spencer have? can't be too many.
I've said this before. Sacks are for me, one of if not the most overrated stat in the NFL.
Are you sure?
Dez will get in. I think players and coaches around the league respect his game.
There's a chance we don't send anyone to the Pro-Bowl, but if someone has the best chance it's Ware... and that would be based more on respect than his play this year.
It's gonna be tough for our guys to get in. I'd think Dez, Witten and Ware have decent shots but take a look at their positions.
*Parenthesis signifies number of players elected.
OLB (3): Aldon Smith, Clay Matthews, Lance Briggs, Sean Weatherspoon
TE (2): Jimmy Graham, Tony G, Vernon Davis
WR (4): Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Vincent Jackson, Julio Jones, Roddy White
It's just a tough year to get in at those positions.
Probably only Witten.
It's easy to forget there are a number of good 4-3 OLBs in the NFC as well and that the Pro-Bowl groups the 3-4 and 4-3 OLBs together.
Weatherspoon has had a good year.
Maybe it wouldn't be shocking if Ware didn't make it.
Sacking a QB is overrated. That makes no sense.
Spencer has 10 btw. I guess his sacks mean nothing either. Von Miller, JJ Watt, Aldon Smith's sacks mean nothing too.
I don't see any Cowboys, not a single one, starting on the probowl team.
Spencer deserves a shot, but I doubt the league votes him in...you usually need two great years first.
Witten has the best shot of anyone, but I think he'll be a backup.
Witten and Bryant will probably make it.
Romo won't make it, but he probably should. Rodgers and probably Ryan are in, and likely Brees will get in as well with another 5000 yd, 40 TD season, unless Robert Griffin hysteria spills over into pro bowl voting.
But what Romo has done the 2nd half with this team has been sensational. He's dragged this error-filled, moronic, injury-prone roster full of jags to within a game of the playoffs, in spite of its OL, no defense, and a clown HC.
Because of his reputation and playing for basically a .500 team, Romo won't get any MVP consideration at all. But he should.
I never said they didn't mean anything. But I don't base everything on sacks either, like many people here do. Spencer has 10 sacks like you said. that's great, but what I see is someone who is playing with a high motor all game, stoping the run and playing solid coverage. I see someone making tackle after tackle in crucial times ( 87 tackles).
Look at JPP he had 16.5 sacks last season..That's great, but I do recall him always causing havoc in the backfield disrupting the passer and runner. I look at the overal picture not just sacks. But like I said, I don't follow every team closely, so it's unfair for me to say anything about Aldon and Mathews which also have ver 10 sacks.
You said sacks are for me and one of if not the overrated stats in football. That's pretty clear to me they don't mean anything to you.
Also you say you don't recall JPP causing havoc in the backfield. Did you miss the Week 14 game at Cowboys stadium last season. He was in the backfield a lot including getting a safety.
Was just about to add this.
Yeah he should. His numbers are really good. Blair Walsh from Minn might beat him out. He's 9-9 from 50+.
Don't put words in my mouth. Just because their overrrated, one of the most in my opinion doesn't mean I don't think they are non important. I think running a 4.2 is overrated, that doesn't mean it's not important. Don't be a smart ***.
And I said I " DO" recall JPP causing havoc in the backfield. That's why I made the Spencer/Ware comparison. One has more sacks but the other is clearly disrupting the offense more than the other, hence why I stated the high motor and meaningful plays and tackle count.
Anyone besides Witten would be a pleasant surprise.
