On the same day both Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and OLB Anthony Spencer got screwed from a deserved Pro Bowl selection, NFL Network reporter and friend to The Big Mac Blog Albert Breer writes the future of the NFL Pro Bowl could be in jeopardy for a variety of reasons.
The least important reason is a roster that routinely can't avoid a few screwups every year. Always happens, and it always will with any All-Star selection process that allows fans have a say. Players, too.
The voting process ends after 14 games. Why? The way technology is today the voting should be completed the day after season ends. People could vote from their phones.
The Cowboys had two players selected to the NFC roster - TE Jason Witten, who is having a record year for tight ends, and OLB DeMarcus Ware, who was picked because he is really popular.
Victor Cruz - 82 receptions, 1,040 yards, 9 TDs
Dez Bryant - 88 receptions, 1,311 yards, 12 TDs
DeMarcus Ware - 55 tkls, 11.5 sacks, 5 forced fumbles, 0 int.
Anthony Spencer - 87 tkls, 10 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 0 int., 3 passes defended
Given the way Pro Bowlers routinely drop out of this game I fully expect both Spencer and Dez to be in Hawaii to fake their way through the exhibition of trying to avoid injuries.
