From 13Pro Bowlers last year to 5 this year, the Cowboys didn’t impress fans, players and coaches that much this year.
Of the five Dallas Cowboys named to the Pro Bowl, linebacker Bradie James is not one of them. And that, my friends, is highway robbery.
The Cowboys who will go to the Pro Bowl are DeMarcus Ware, who leads the NFL in sacks, Jason Witten, who leads the team in receptions, Jay Ratliff, who has the most sacks as a nose tackle, Andre Gurode and Leonard Davis is an alternate.
But no Bradie James? He has 99 tackles with an amazing 69 solo tackles and six sacks.
Patrick Willis and Jon Beason beat out James for the two inside linebacker positions. Both have more tackles and solo tackles than James, but have far less sacks. Beason deserved to go, but I am not sure Willis has done much to help his team win, and the overall 49ers defense is pretty weak.
