And yes, I did point out that Dunn doesn't get into the endzone a lot and gets nice lanes. If I didn't acknowledge those things I'd be cherry-picking the evidence. I like to think that I acknowledge both the good and bad things about a player, team, coach, etc.

Also, Duckett does get the ball in short-yardage situations because Dunn is undersized. However, that he is able to hold up to the punishment that he endures while being as small as he is is something he should get credit for.

But, the bottom line is that there is no denying that Dunn is a great player. He's racked up 1,247 yards on 242 carries for a 5.2 ypc average and another 200 yards in the air. He's also racked up 10 runs of 20 yards or more. Point blank, the guy is a baller.
I tried to be careful in my post to focus on the issue - which of two great players with almost identical stats should get the nod. We both know CP and Dunn are great players. I didn't suggest you thought CP sucked, and I said Dunn is a great player (not too clearly, admittedly). This season their numbers are basically identical, except for TDs.

At this point, our analysis differs. I think CP's intangibles (namely blocking and getting open for the screen pass) outweigh Dunn's. Added to the fact he has more TDs than Dunn, I think you have to give him the nod. I appreciate that Dunn does a lot with what he has, but so does Earl Boykins. It doesn't mean he should beat out a Steve Nash for an All Star spot just because he does.

Re: CBS - Sportsline Pro Bowl picks

The most we'll put in the Pro-Bowl is three players. As many as four deserve to go, but I don't think we'll have more than three.

*******************
Portis
Taylor
Moss
*******************

Wow, I didn't realize I picked three from the "U"!

Washington really deserves it, too, but it doesn't seem like he's getting a whole lot of respect this year in the voting.

Bledsoe, Allen, Witten, and Williams are candidates for reserve spots. Bledsoe might get the nod. Witten is a Pro Bowl-caliver player but likely gets beaten out by Shockey and Crumpler. Williams is overrated but might get in simply because he hits hard. But, there isn't a single Cowboys who deserves to be a starter at the Pro Bowl.

Re: CBS - Sportsline Pro Bowl picks

Bledsoe is having a good year and is the 2nd best NFC QB and its playing way better than brunnel, Witten is having a good year dispite he has had to been use more as a blocking TE than a receiving 1 because of our problems at tackle and that has hurth his numbers and still is having a better season than cooley dispite this matter but will not get in because of shockey having a great year and Crumpler having more REP.

Player Team G Rec Yds Yds/G Lng Avg TDs 20+
Chris Cooley WAS 13 58 654 50.3 32 11.3 3 5
Jason Witten DAL 13 57 657 50.5 34 11.5 4 6

Allen will get in he's having a good season not great but will get in base on REP , Glover should get in becasue he's having a great season dispite not playing the hole game aprox 60% of the snaps but won't get in I believe.

R.Williams will get in he has more respect fro mthe players and coaches than the media and is having a good season 3 missed assignment (2 vs Was 1 vs Den) that hurth us but overall he is as good as they come.

Now Arizona Wilson is having a good year, Sharper is putting the number so he will get in, Dawkings will get in base on rep more thn anything or Smith whos having a good year.

As I said before Taylor is not there yet maybe next year.

So I believe Cowboys would have 3 maybe 4

Re: CBS - Sportsline Pro Bowl picks

Witten and Cooley are neck and neck, I wouldn't say either is having a better season than the other. Their numbers are almost identical.

Re: CBS - Sportsline Pro Bowl picks

one thing to notice from these picks for all who claim "Portis is underrated".

Ladanian Tomlinson and Shaun Alexander are going to the Pro-Bowl most likely not alone, and in no small part to their potentially Pro-Bowl Fullbacks Lorenzo Neal and Mack Strong leading the way.

as for Portis, nobody has produced more for the Redskins offense this year and last. mostly by himself with only occaisional help from fullback Mike Sellers...

Well for one the article was written by Pete Prisco, who has been a wounded duck for years.

I don't even think he is close with most of those NFC picks. I most certainly endorse and believe Santana Moss should go to Honolulu, and Portis as well.

But Witten should not go, not even as a reserve. Due to the loss of Adams at LT and a rookie RT in Pettiti, Witten has been kept in the backfield to help block a lot this season and his numbers are way down. But the records show that when they are able to get Witten in the game, the Cowboys win.

I am sorry but I seriously doubt that Brunnel gets the nod to Honolulu over Bledsoe. Bledsoe won his 9th NFL Player of the week award last week, and he leads Brunnel in QB rating, total yardage, TDs, completion percentage and yards per attempt. He is also currently LEADING in the fan vote for the Pro Bowl. Bledsoe may not start, but I do think he makes the Pro Bowl roster.

For WR, Prisco used total yardage only as the decinding factor, he should'nt do that. I am really surprised not too see Plaxico Burress even on Prisco's list. If you read Priscos list for WR's, all 4 appear in order as they do in the NFC stats for total yardage. Smith, Moss, Fitzgerald and Galloway are at the top 4 of the list in that order. Funny that the list mirrors what Prisco says are the WR's for the NFC. Same order too.

Prisco has no creativity what so ever, anybody can "copy and paste" names to an article.

Yes the numbers are almost Identical that what I said and that's wit hwitten playing more as a blocking TE than a receiving 1 because he ahs to help the O-line a lot.

But anyway only 2 get in and I think it will be Crumpler and Shokey even thought Witten is doing more than Crumpler

Cooley lines up all over the place, from the backfield to the line to spread out wide.

I really doubt Witten does more than Cooley. H-back is a much more complex position than TE.

DISCLAIMER - I hate that I am posting this:
That's a double-edged argument, though. How many receptions has Cooley gotten because he has lined up at WR or has been in motion? I guess the counter argument is that he has had to line up at FB a fair number of times, so maybe it balances out?

FWIW, you are obviously correct that Cooley does more than Witten. There should really be a "utility player" category (kind of like the 6th man award in the NBA) for the guy who does so much that it can't be categorized into a single position.

Re: CBS - Sportsline Pro Bowl picks

Not sure I'm following your logic, why should it matter where he lines up as far as catches go?

Mattyk I'm sorry but Witten also lines up all over the place as fullback, HB, WR and TE even KJ has line up as a hb

Well I guess they are pretty even then, just like I originally said.
