Super Bowl Champs
Back in 1992 the Cowboys only had 6 players who made the Pro Bowl when they won their 1st Super Bowl under Jimmy Johnson and none were from the defense. And this was a team that was 13-3. The players were Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Jay Novacek, Nate Newton, and Mark Stepknowski. The following year they had 11 players from their Super Bowl team. The players were Troy Aikman, Daryl "Moose" Johnston, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Jay Novacek, Nate Newton, Mark Stepknowski, Eric Williams, Russell Maryland, Ken Norton, and Thomas Everett. In 1995, the Cowboys had 10 players from that Super Bowl championship team. They were Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Jay Novacek, Larry Allen, Nate Newton, Mark Tuinei, Ray Donaldson, Charles Haley, and Darren Woodson. These were 6, 11, and 10 players respectively from Super Bowl winning Cowboy teams.
Last 4 years
Now let us compare to Cowboy teams of the last 4 years. In 2007, the Cowboys had 7 players represent the team. The players were Tony Romo, Jason Witten, Flozel Adams, Andre Gurode, DeMarcus Ware, Roy Williams (safety), and Matt McBriar. This is 1 more than the 92 team. In 2008, the Cowboys had 13 players in the Pro Bowl representing the team and this team had a 13-3 regular season record and lost to the Giants in the divisional playoffs. The players were Tony Romo, Marion Barber, Terrell Owens, Jason Witten, Flozell Adams, Leonard Davis, Andre Gurode, DeMarcus Ware, Greg Ellis, Terrence Newman, Ken Hamlin, Nick Folk, and Roy Williams (replaced Laundry). In 2009, the Cowboys had a 9-7 record and had 6 players in the Pro Bowl. These were Jason Witten, Miles Austin, Leonard Davis, Andre Gurode, DeMarcus Ware, and Jay Ratliff. But Tony Romo, Terrence Newman, Mike Jenkins made the team due to injuries to other players on the NFC roster which gives them 9 total players. This year, well everybody knows how poorly the Cowboys played and they have 5 players in the Pro Bowl. The players are Jason Witten, Andre Gurode, DeMarcus Ware, Jay Ratliff, and Matt McBriar.
This year's Pro Bowl players from the Cowboys are 1 less than the 1992 Super Bowl championship team. The fans, coaches, and players currently vote for Pro Bowl players and each group counts for 1/3 of the ballot. How do the current Cowboy teams have more players in the Pro Bowl than any of the Super Bowl teams of the 90s? No wonder this guys have a sense of entitlement and think that the only thing have to do is show for the game.
