Congratulations to both TE Jason Witten and G Leonard Davis for being named to this years mid-season All Pro Team by the Sporting News.
Davis has proven to be every bit as good as advertised after joining the Cowboys this off season. His presence on the offensive line is one of the reasons Tony Romo is having such a fine second season.
Jason Witten has been nothing short of spectacular, and even though I’ve been saying it since the pre-season, I am glad that he is now recognized by everyone as the best tight-end in the game right now.
I was a little disappointed that Brett Favre edged out Tony Romo at quarterback, and I think it was more of a sentimental vote than anything else. Romo leads Favre in QB Rating and TD’s thrown. As far as I’m concerned, Tony Romo IS the best QB in the NFC!
Terrell Owens was also slighted as he was beaten out by Plaxico Burress and Steve Smith at the Wide Receiver positions. Owens has as many touchdowns as Plaxico, and he has more yards 730 to 529, and catches 44 to 40. He was totally hosed.
On defense, you could make a strong argument that De Marcus Ware was shafted by TSN. Ware is having a huge season and already has 7 sacks at the halfway point of the season and leads the league. He is the most feared linebacker in the NFC and is frequently keyed in on by opposing guards and tight-ends. I have no doubt, that he will be the unanimous choice for All Pro and Pro Bowl honors at the end of the season.
Get your popcorn ready for Sunday’s game!
