Terence Newman makes it to Miami

And another Pro Bowler won’t be going to the Pro Bowl.

The Cowboys have announced that cornerback Terence Newman has been added to the NFC team, in place of Cardinals cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a knee injury in Saturday’s playoff loss to the Saints.

Newman becomes the seventh Cowboy on the NFC squad, joining tight end Jason Witten, center Andre Gurode, linebacker DeMarcus Ware, guard Leonard Davis, nose tackle Jay Ratliff, and receiver Miles Austin.

    How is Tony Romo not in the Pro Bowl?
    He is better than Brees, Favre, Rodgers, Warner.

    Stay tuned.
    After this weekend’s game there will likely be about 10-15 more players not going to play in the Pro Bowl.
    Both Super Bowl teams will have NO representation regardless of who it is.
    I still can’t think of one good reason the Pro Bowl is played the week before the Super Bowl instead of after.

    are they playing two hand touch at this year’s pro bowl? If they are then this selection makes total sense.

  4. Citizen Strange says: Jan 20, 2010 1:48 PM

    Serious question.
    When a player declines to go to the Pro Bowl I assume he still gets to carry the Pro Bowl credit on his resume, as in ; 12 NFL seasons, seven Pro Bowls.
    Does the replacement player get to keep the Pro Bowl credit too?
    If so, then every year – including both AFC and NFC – there are like 25 players at each position who can claim they were in the Pro Bowl.

    Maybe they can teach ol’ T-New some “new” corner techniques like “jamming a WR off the Line of scrimmage so that he doesn’t run free through your secondary”. Every single one of the TD’s have gave up this year involved him being reluctant to get physical with the WR he was matched up with. O-V-E-R-R-A-T-E-D

  6. Indyeagle says: Jan 20, 2010 1:50 PM

    How does the second best corner on the team make it over the better corner? Newman isn’t even in the top 10 corners in the nfc, let alone a pro-bowler. What a joke!

  7. Gweez says: Jan 20, 2010 1:53 PM

    Thank goodness, just served. This would be like Safety Roy Williams not making the pro bowl. Both are/were so underrated.

  8. Chapnasty2 says: Jan 20, 2010 1:53 PM

    What?? Why not Mike Jenkins? Newman was a bum this year compared to him.

  9. phildo says: Jan 20, 2010 1:57 PM

    has Jenkins gotten up yet since Rice burned him and left him crawling on the ground?

  10. Bob Loblaw says: Jan 20, 2010 2:02 PM

    Wasn’t Antoine Winfield already named to the Pro Bowl to replace ARC?
    By the time the players on the Super Bowl teams have to skip the Pro Bowl on top of the number of guys who opt not to play (many just don’t want to prepare for and play a meaningless football game in the middle of their short vacation between end of season and begiing training for the next season), it’s going to be really watered down with fifth alternates playing.
    Question: If someone makes the Pro Bowl as a fifth alternate, do they still get any bonuses tied in to the Pro Bowl. If so, wouldn’t that impact a team’s salary cap numbers if it ends up being a capped year?

  11. Gweez says: Jan 20, 2010 2:03 PM

    Romo better than Favre and Brees? Lol you’re funny.

  12. Nam Huynh says: Jan 20, 2010 2:07 PM

    haha didnt realize Pro Bowl is being played in Miami. I fail.

  13. scrapdawg12 says: Jan 20, 2010 2:08 PM

    To Kravon…Tony Homo stinks, get over it
    Terence Newman doesn’t deserve to even sniff the pro bowl. He is about as worthless as Wade Philips is on that team. There are better corners in the NFC.

  14. hizzle1281 says: Jan 20, 2010 2:16 PM

    then who did antoine winfield replace?

    ______________________
    Come on bro. Be a fan but be realistic. Those 4 QBS are all better than Romo. Sorry I hate Favre too, everyone saw what he did to the 9ers, but be realistic.
    Pro Bowl is kinda losing credibility with all these alternates stepping in.

    kravon are you on crack ? All 4 are way better than Tony Romo

  17. sully56sgobirds says: Jan 20, 2010 2:23 PM

    Kravon must just get the Dallas stations if he thinks Romo is better than Brees, Favre, Warner and Rodgers. Watch some other games besides your Cowgirls. Maybe you will learn something.

  18. FireJerryJones says: Jan 20, 2010 2:25 PM

    Great.
    Maybe he can watch Sidney Rice run by again.

  19. boysroll says: Jan 20, 2010 2:29 PM

    wow. romo gets in shortly too. That will make it 8 pro bowlers. A couple strong draft picks, shore up the oline a bit, a couple of free agents and this many pro bowlers and if wade cannot win it all I would can his ass next year.
    SB is in Dallas too so Wade will have to get to the big game to make it another season.

  20. phildo says: Jan 20, 2010 2:29 PM

    on any other team Romo is a third string QB

  21. C-Student says: Jan 20, 2010 3:02 PM

    why isnt romo better than rodgers, brees, rivers, palmer, or most other starting qb’s? what have any of them won?
    compare numbers. other than brees, romo’s numbers are better than all those guys.
    you guys hate on romo because he plays for the cowboys but you give other qb’s with less stats a pass.
    the only qb’s that are better than romo are manning, brady, and big ben. i excluded warner and favre because they are nearing the end.
    put your bias aside, and tell me what other young or prime qb’s are better than romo.

  22. Cowboy22 says: Jan 20, 2010 3:05 PM

    phildo:
    “on any other team Romo is a third string QB”
    That may be the dumbest comment of the day.

    ______________________
    That was Gerald Sensabaugh slappy….
    and he wasn’t burned, the idiot just didn’t know the ball was coming and would have intercepted it had he just turned around. the fool didn’t even know he scored the TD. strangest thing I’ve ever seen

  24. Marky McFly says: Jan 20, 2010 3:44 PM

    I’ve read this here blogs for a few years now, and it never ceases to amaze me how many people hate th cowboys, including the owner of this blog. Florio had to post 8 different stories about Brooking, and everyone made fun of the cowboys and told them to suck it up. If it was favre saying the same thing about the Cowboys, it would be the Cowboys who were classless not the vikings bitching. It’s just how it is. why everyone still hates the Cowboys for no reason is beyond me. Everyone gets on jerry jones even though hes done more the NFL than just about any other owner period. It’s astounding.

  25. stevemcguigan says: Jan 20, 2010 3:46 PM

    Pro Bowl is for the single year’s performance. Romo was not better than Warner, Favre, Brees, or Rodgers this year. He WAS better than McNabb (this year) though, so if McNabb goes it’d be pretty unjust.

  26. TRAMO says: Jan 20, 2010 3:49 PM

    if romo’s no good ,what does that say about mcflab and mcvick.he kick both there butts this year 3 times!

  27. TRAMO says: Jan 20, 2010 3:55 PM

    Cowboy fans are wasting there time replying sensably to these eagle fan comments.remember they think VICK has courageeee

  28. Whiterhino says: Jan 20, 2010 4:02 PM

    So what you’re saying, Jackson, is that if Newman had been a better football player he would have stopped that TD?
    Well, better football players deserve to get into the Pro Bowl. Not guys who “almost” made a play.

  29. kravon says: Jan 20, 2010 4:10 PM

    If Romo cant be in, then at least let Flozell Adams in the Pro Bowl

  30. last starfighter says: Jan 20, 2010 4:15 PM

    Romosexual was outplayed by favre and rodgers head-to-head.

  31. mixman34 says: Jan 20, 2010 4:21 PM

    Im guessing the rumor mill turned gossip site screwed the whole Winfield-oddly-made-it-in article up and was supposed to be Newman the whole time.

  32. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 20, 2010 5:00 PM

    “How does the second best corner on the team make it over the better corner? ”
    Same way the third best QB in a division makes it over the other two guys.

  33. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 20, 2010 5:01 PM

    “Newman isn’t even in the top 10 corners in the nfc”
    Desean Jackson thinks he’s pretty good. But he’s to busy out stinging somebody’s azz to tell you.

  34. Chapnasty2 says: Jan 20, 2010 5:04 PM

    Anyone one who thinks Romo isnt a top 3-4 QB in the NFC is a moron. I don’t care if you are a fan or not, you are simply a retard if you deny his successful numbers. He has been a starter for what 3 or 4 full years now? Give me a break. McNabb has played 10 let down seasons.

  35. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 20, 2010 5:07 PM

    “Well, better football players deserve to get into the Pro Bowl. Not guys who “almost” made a play.”
    So why is Asante Samuel there? Cowboys picked on him relentlessly in two straight games with an undrafted QB and WR and a 7th round pick WR and he did jack. He “almost” had a few INTs but he “mostly” gave up a ton of yards as he snatched at thin air time after time and watched Crayton and Austin run away from him.

  36. tatum32 says: Jan 20, 2010 5:10 PM

    “How is Tony Romo not in the Pro Bowl?
    He is better than Brees, Favre, Rodgers, Warner.”
    When he wins 2 playoff games or gets to an NFC Championship, then he gets in. And with the O-line Rodgers plays behind, he needs not only a Pro Bowl, but Congressional Medal of Honor – what’d didnt he get sacked 40 times or something….??

  37. Jackson says: Jan 20, 2010 5:16 PM

    ____________
    Not sure what you’re referring to? phildo made a comment about Jenkins getting burned. I thought he was talking about the play that Sensabaugh missed and Rice scored on. He was actually talking about the one Rice pushed off on Jenkins to score. It was still a good play by Rice though and Jenkins still should have made the play.
    was there another play that Newman got beat on? there were a lot of them. it was hard for this Cowboys fan to keep up with all of them. LOL
    we got beat pretty badly. Vikings showed up. Cowboys didn’t. pretty much enough said.

    @Vox:
    (“How does the second best corner on the team make it over the better corner? ”
    Same way the third best QB in a division makes it over the other two guys.)
    So your saying that Romo IS going?
    Actually I agree, Romo of the one’n’doneBoys should be going.
    .
    .
    As a kick holder that is

  39. Jaso says: Jan 20, 2010 7:43 PM

    As a Cowboy fan I am glad Newman made it, but, with all these players dropping out I think I would rather watch an old-timer flag football game than the Pro Bowl.

  40. Whiterhino says: Jan 20, 2010 9:01 PM

    Sorry Jackson if I misread you!
    I’m an Eagles fan, we all know up here in Philly how a talented secondary can make you cringe sometimes.

  41. sully56sgobirds says: Jan 22, 2010 5:50 PM

    I love how all the Cowgirl fans like to get on Mcnabb when everyone tells it how it is with Tony Romo. The Funny thing about it is %60 to %70 of us Eagles fans Don’t think Mcnabb is a good QB either. Nobody on here said Mcnabb deserved to be in Pro Bowl, we are just commenting on one idiot sayin Romo is better than Warner, Favre & Rodgers. Romo cant even hold Warner & Favre’s Jock & Arron Rodgers in his first 2 seasons has put up better #’s than Homo.
