Cowboys Place Most Players In NFL Top 50

Not only did the Cowboys send the most representatives to last year’s Pro Bowl, they have now placed the most players in Pro Football Weekly magazine’s annual Top 50 NFL Players.  That’s four more than the defending champ New York Giants and three more than the New England Patriots have in the list.

DeMarcus Ware ranked 6th overall, Terrell Owens 8th, Tony Romo 18th, Terence Newman 36th  and Marion Barber came in at 44th in the PFW article soon to be published.   This is a vast improvement to last year when only one Cowboy was in the Top 50, Terrence Newman.  How Jason Witten didn’t make it is beyond my comprehension, in fact, he is rated the 4th best TE in the NFL behind Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez and Kellen Winslow, Jr., which is very puzzling to me.

But having 11 players listed in the top 10 at their positions and several others ranked in the top 25 or so as well is definitely a good sign.   DeMarcus Ware is named the top OLB in the league while Andre Gurode comes in as the top center.  Leonard Davis, Flozell Adams are in the top 3 in the OL and Marc Colombo comes in a respectable 23rd.  Newman places 5th in CB’s, and Romo, Barber and Hamlin are 6th at their jobs while Zach Thomas was rated the 8th best ILB in the league. 

I’m unsure as to where T.O. comes in at WR, he is eighth overall but I believe he came in second to Randy Moss for his position.  A close call but hard to complain about such things as who is really the “best” WR in the NFL.  Basically a very positive report that should make all of us Cowboys-fans quite happy.
