Dallas Cowboys Tuesday news & notes

New, comments

Later today the Pro Bowl rosters will be announced. Don't expect 13 Cowboys to head to the Pro Bowl like last year, which in my opinion isn't a bad thing. DeMarcus Ware and Jason Witten are guaranteed shoe-ins, but who else gets to go is up in the air at this point. Jay Ratliff and Bradie James deserves to go but would have needed some high voting by the players and coaches to get to the game. Another player deserving to go but who didn't even finish in the top 5 at his position in fan voting is Tony Romo. It will be interesting to see if his peers think highly enough of him to vote him into the game. Check out 5Blings' post here for a great discussion on who should and shouldn't go.

The announcement will be live on NFL Network at 4 EST.

Here are some news and notes from around the the interweb.

The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants game Sunday night was the highest rated SNF game of the year, and beat out the Survivor season finale.

Mac Engel takes a look at why this Dallas Cowboys team may be bucking the trend, and actually getting better in December.

DeMarcus Ware is finally getting some MSM attention for his potential historic season.

The Dallas Cowboys' defense is molding into one of the league's best, and of Ware is at the top of the reason's why. Wade Phillips has an interesting point that I had forgotten about; Ware should have 20 sacks by now.

"He should have 20," coach Wade Phillips said. "We had one earlier in the year where he ran the quarterback out of bounds, and they gave it to Zach [Thomas]."

Thomas George of NFL.com examines how the pass rush defenses in the league are leading their teams into the playoffs.

A look back at the Cowboys/Giants game from a New York media point of view.

In more important news, Tony Romo's back may keep him out of practice on Wednesday. Wade Phillips says that he is expected to be fine for the game against Baltimore.

And finally Mickey Spagnola, in verbose fashion, says that the catalyst for the defenses' surge in dominant play can be attributed to Terence Newman's healthy return.
