With the popularity of television shows like The Walking Dead and movies like World War Z at an all-time high, it seems the zombie genre is back with a bloody vengeance. And although it may be considered an act of futility, I thought we’d have a little harmless fun today and try to figure out which five Dallas Cowboys players you’d want beside you in the midst of an zombie apocalypse. Considering last week’s bad news about Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee, I think we could all use a bit of fun for a change.

A member of the Cowboys medical staff might be a great addition. But you’d probably be out of luck if you had a hamstring issue.
Now, the obvious answer in selecting five Cowboys players to fight alongside of your during a zombie attack would the Dallas’ offensive line. These mountain-sized men fight off bloodthirsty opponents for a living. But, because we know so much about the players themselves, their flaws might make some of them less desirable. For instance, would you want a someone protecting your back who has a degenerative knee issue? Or how about a player who often is hot or cold, playing like a Pro Bowler one year and leading the league in penalties the next?

And you’d need diversity within your group in order to survive. Having five huge, bulky blockers might not help you if you need to fly under the radar. Who is going to lead this group? Do you want a mentally tough veteran or a career bench player? How about someone with some mixed martial arts training? And why does it have to be five males? How about a member of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders? Or what if someone has a medical issue? A member of the Cowboys medical staff might be a great addition. But you’d probably be out of luck if you had a hamstring issue. (I kid, I kid) Unfortunately, we are only going with current Cowboys players on this list.

As you can see, a little forethought could really increase your chances of surviving a zombie apocalypse. Therefore, here is my way too thought over list about the five Cowboys players I’d want with me in case of a zombie outbreak.

    DEFINITELY NOT TONY ROMO. he’s way too much of a mistake maker. He would be great before the zombies got there. Planning and strategizing and keeping his cool and being a boss…and then. At go time when the stakes are at an all-time high. When the zombies are right in front of us about to attack, he will screw up and accidentally shoot a teammate, causing the whole operation to fail in epic fashion. Tony “oh no” Romo in a nutshell. Lmao!

      Another Romo hater…shows how LITTLE you know about a team sport.

      • truthbetold

        Lol why is it that when Romo excuse makers come across someone who doesn’t like Romo, they automatically conclude that that person doesn’t know football? Here is another idea….I do know football, and I’m simply not impressed with Romo. Period.

          Led nine fourth-quarter comeback wins (2nd behind Eli Manning’s 10) since 2011.
          Led nine game-winning drives (3rd behind Eli’s 11 and Matt Ryan’s 10) since 2011.
          Since 2011, a record of 9-10 (.474) at game-winning drive opportunities (would rank No. 8 among active players with a minimum of 10 games).
          Dallas had a fourth-quarter lead or tie in eight of those 10 losses.
          Romo’s five comebacks in 2012 are a franchise record for a season. His 18 career fourth-quarter comeback wins set the new Cowboys record, surpassing Troy Aikman (16) and Roger Staubach (15). guess you are not impressed with much….
          Yep ..you let your disappointment with THE TEAM feed your clueless assessment of Romo.

            8 years as starter, 1 playoff victory. 1-6 lifetime in elimination games. Since 2011, he has thrown EIGHT interceptions in the final 4 minutes of 1 possession games. Romo excuse makers like to point the finger at the defense. Certainly, they share blame. But anyone who says Romo doesn’t play a part in it is simply lying or delusional. Period. Peyton manning won the superbowl with the 21st ranked defense in the league. Tom Brady carried a garbage defense all the way to the superbowl to face Eli. And forget about those guys, who are actually elite quarterbacks. NICK FOLES walked in, partial season last year, and led the 29th ranked defense to 10 wins and a division title. Let me repeat that. Nick foles led the 29th ranked defense to 10 wins and a division title. Some quarterbacks have it, and some don’t. Romo, for all his stats, is simply a talented loser. Period.

  • Scott.

    I’d replace Whitten with Martin then the zombies knees would explode. Also unless Harris has the food in a backpack and his job is to keep the remaining food away from the zombies then he is useless. Lol

    Witten , t smith,fred, zack martin, dez bryant!!!!! All day
