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.
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.
