Five Cowboys Selected To All-Pro Team

ware-all-pro.jpgIt has been a long time since the Cowboys had this many players voted by the Associated Press onto the  All-Pro team, 1999 to be exact.  There were three players selected to the first team and two on the second-team for a total of five.  Of course LB DeMarcus Ware, WR Terrell Owens and TE Jason Witten were named as first teamers and OL Flozell Adams and Leonard Davis to second team.  In ’99 there were only two players from Dallas selected as All-Pro’s, that was G Larry Allen and DB Deion Sanders.

Tony Romo, although making his second Pro-Bowl appearance in a row wasn’t selected to the All-Pro teams, losing out to QB’s Tom Brady and Brett Favre in the voting.  His December statistics may have also hurt his chances.

Ware tied the team season record for sacks with 14, tying Jim Jeffcoat in the ’85 season and is the first LB since Chuck Howley named All-Pro.  Owens broke the record for TD passes in a season for the Cowboys with 15 and became the first receiver since HOF’er Michael Irvin to get the honor.  And last but never least, Jason Witten is the first TE for Dallas voted in since Novacek made the second squad in ’92.  Witten lead the Cowboys in receptions with 96 and became Dallas’ all-time leader in yards for a TE with 3,793 at the end of this season.

Combined with having an even dozen players on the Pro-Bowl roster, I would have to say this is by far the most talented team we have seen in a decade here in Dallas.
