In the (unlikely) event that the Dallas Cowboys make a deep postseason run and already have travel plans for New York in early February, this column will become pointless as no player will heading West. Just in case though, with the final four weeks of the 2013 season just in front of us, I thought it would be a good time to hypothesize which players will be making the Pro Bowl this year.
Currently, Dallas has seven wins to only five losses. Their final four games are at Chicago (losers of three of their last four games and possibly missing their starting QB), home vs. Green Bay (0-4-1 without Aaron Rodgers who could be done for the season), at Washington (losers of five of their last six) and home vs. Philadelphia. Not to jinx anything here but it is hard to see how Dallas only manages one win from that. With that being said, I feel like it is safe to say that another 8-8 season is highly unlikely. In the previous eight win seasons, the Cowboys put two players in the NFL’s All-Star game in each season. Finishing with a record above 8-8 and making the playoffs would lend to reason that at least two players and possibly as many as four or five could make the festivities.
Today we will look at who is considered to be a lock for the game and who is either a strong possibility or on the outside looking in.
