NFL Top 100 Fixed Against Dallas Cowboys

Share Button

This article may rattle a few cages, but the fact remains it’s true and I proved it. I challenge NFL.com to prove any different! The NFL top 100 is definitely fixed “against” the Dallas Cowboys!

demarcus-ware-05I had a little free time on my hands this morning and I decided to visit NFL.com’s   NFL top 100 players for 2013 voting page for fans. The whole object of the site is for fans to be able to vote on the players available and establish their own personal top 10 list. It didn’t take long before I began to think hmm: have the Dallas Cowboys greats like Tony Romo, Jason Witten, Sean Lee, Dez Bryant, Bruce Carter, Demarco Murray etc been excluded from the voting?

After I voted countless times, DeMarcus Ware finally showed up. I was amazed and thought wow ok now they will start showing the Cowboys top 100 candidates. About 50 votes later, after seeing the same players over and over at the same positions and no Dallas Cowboys, I began to get pretty damn pissed off. Finally Tony Romo showed up after I had seen numerous QB’s multiple times. I started to feel a little better. This went on and on for quite some time and finally I saw Dez Bryant. As I looked at my “SUPPOSED” top 10 players in the NFL, most never would have made my list. Keep in mind that Tony Romo was 3rd in the entire NFL in passing last season and I only got 1 opportunity to vote for him. Jason Witten set a single season reception record as a TE, and yet the same results.

 

Tony+Romo+New+England+Patriots+v+Dallas+Cowboys+At this point I am fuming, so I started voting for whoever was against the guys that repeatedly came up in the voting selections. At that point they started putting the players I was skipping up against each other, so I was forced to vote for 1 of them. I continued my experiment for the better part of 2 hours. Below you can see who my top 10 list ended up being whether I wanted those guys or not. Keep in mind, in the beginning I was voting honestly based on the competition. Then I started voting against their favorites. To sum this whole thing up, after hundreds of votes, I saw Tony Romo 1 time as a selection, Dez Bryant 2 times, Jason Witten 1 time, Miles Austin 1 time and DeMarco Murray 1 time. Sean Lee Lee and Bruce Carter never once appeared in the voting neither did Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne, Tyron Smith etc. The strange part was, Terrance Newman showed up multiple times as a selection. The bottom line is, Demarcus Ware is the “ONLY” Cowboy who made my list, behind many inferior players.(Keep in mind, Ware had a below average season being banged up)  I challenge you to go vote for yourself and then return and answer our poll. It’s obvious, they decide who we get to vote for so the results go in favor of the players they want in the top 100. You will be amazed at some of the choices you repeatedly get over much better Dallas Cowboys players.

I want to publicize these results and bust out NFL.com for discriminating against Americas Team, Our Team, the Dallas Cowboys.

Below is a list of your current top ten picks. The more you vote, the more precise your list becomes – and votes are saved for future visits. (Can you believe those people are telling me this is“MY” top 10 list?) Note how many votes some of these players got because I was unable to skip voting for them again. I am choosing Ridley as the #1 player in the NFL? REALLY??????? Click Here to go try it for yourself.

Player Vote ct.
1 S. Ridley Patriots, RB 6
2 A. Smith 49ers, DE 6
3 L. Mankins Patriots, G 6
4 D. Ware Cowboys, DE 5
5 C. Woodson Packers, CB 5
6 J. Thomas Browns, T 4
7 B. Urlacher Bears, LB 4
8 R. Barber Buccaneers, FS 4
9 J. Evans Saints, G 4
10 C. Liuget Chargers, DT 4

 

Now that you have seen my results, I hope that you will not only try it out for yourself, but participate in our poll posted below. I am asking everyone to participate and to get as many other fans as possible to vote as well. It’s time someone busts NFL.com out for their bias against the Dallas Cowboys. (What I also found amazing was Calvin Johnson only appeared 1 time for me to vote, I assume they don’t like the Lions Much either.)

    cowgirl it always seems to be cowboy bias it’s the whole america’s team thing. i really think that hurts them with hall of fame balloting to, just my opinion.

    • Defense 28 I agree 100%

    • Someone needs to speak out about it, may as well be me lol

      • MichaelValentino

        CowgirlCas22 I agree, but I think next time you should tell us how you really feel; don’t hold back, Cas. Let it go. lol

    • MichaelValentino

      Defense 28 I always liked NFL Films for the great work they’ve done through the years…except for one thing. NFL Films gave the Cowboys the title of “America’s Team.” That – more than anything, more than anyone – turned much of the nation, and, IMHO, the Hall of Fame voters, squarely against the Cowboys and everything associated with the Cowboys, including its fans. I cringe every time I hear the Cowboys referred to as America’s Team. I further believe this nationwide love-or-hate preoccupation with the Cowboys is one of the things that most fuels Jerry Jones’s ego. The Steelers have a more rabid national following than the Cowboys and the Patriots are, without question, the most popular/successful/televised team in the NFL today. Give either one the title. Give either one Mr. Jones as well.

  • Californy

    I rarely follow the popularity list.  These list are about the individual, what I care more about is team accomplishment, and how they do collectively.  When it all said and done my Player when he retires will be the number 1 TE in most categories but until this point Jason Witten is about the team and how he does with the team as a unit.  I could care less about the Cowboys popularity as long as we win the biggest games going down the stretch each year.

  • Californy

    I rather the boys be the most hated team in football as long as we had a boat load of trophies.

    • Tony09s

      Californy Probably the best way to combat this bias against the Cowboys.

  • Californy

    I spend a life time facing bias the only way you should deal with it is by crushing your opponet.  They can talk all they want, it the last man standing on the field that has the greater say.  In other words let you action define who you are today, never the words

  • Californy

    It really doesn’t matter if your opponent know your play if you executed them like you should then no one can stop you.  It all goes back to your action on the field and in the practice field.

  • MichaelValentino

    I’m thinking the same people who vote at NFL.com also voted in the last two presidential elections. Uh, am I gonna get censored for that?  🙂  Seriously, the anti-Cowboys bias is so bad I try to avoid these lists.  It is too frustrating.  Cas, I have to think you’d have popped a blood pressure sleeve if you had one on your arm this morning. I think I would’ve.

  • Football Mensa

    Two points.
    1. Stevan Ridley is an LSU Tiger and that makes him worthy….I kid I kid
    2. If  Dallas was relevant their players would get more votes. Being mediocre has a certain pall about it. Dallas hasn’t been relevant to the NFL in 16 years. You can thank the gm for that.

  • Californy

    America love winner and at one time The Cowboys were America team on the football field.  Rodger made a living at making the comeback and winning of football games. The man with the funny hat and his QB were the face of this franchise back in the day.  Today face is JJ, and he is selling us his two faces to the public.  The one as this team GM and one tied to the glory years.  But JJ record as it GM has been expose when the Jimmy team have faded into team history and the only person standing is JJ and his ego who have struggle to get back to 500 mark every year.

  • No doubt Cas, basically the entire NFL channel analyst are extremely biased against the Dallas Cowboys, especially Warren Sapp and Marshall Faulk. . It is glaring. No doubt that Romo has had horrible days but you show me a QB in the league who has not had those days. It is all on the 1-6 record in the playoffs that is it. 
    I will even go as far as saying if Romo is lucky enough to win a Super Bowl it will not be enough to stop his critics. I blame JJ for the dismal OL that he has surrounded Romo with. Had Romo had the OL that Brady had in New England and others, I would say the results would be different. However that is mere speculation. 
    As you can see JJ did nothing to improve the OL for the coming year, and we will have the same tesults, and the blame will fall on none other than Tony Romo.  I will be shocked if Romo can last through the frist 6 or seven games before getting injured. 
    JJ shoots off his mouth about Manning type hours for Romo to be working on the offensive game plan. Well JJ give him the supporting OL cast and you will see the difference. As it stands now, I see the  Cowboys at 3 -13 for the year, maybe 5-11 at best. I hope I am wrong.

    • TexasBrady Actually Romo has only been to the playoffs 3 times and has 1 win. people forget that P Manning has only 1 super bowl win in 12 trips to the playoffs and zero wins in 8 of his appearances. People also forget it took Elway 15 yrs to win a superbowl and it didn’t happen until he had a running game. No team is going deep in to the playoffs when you are 31st in rushing and 26th in the red zone. That’s not on Tony. He has never had a top RB at his disposal, in fact, he has never had a 1,000 yard rusher period. He hasn’t had a solid WR since T.O either, I hope Dez develops in to that guy, but I don’t think he has the smarts and or work ethic to do it.

      • Your are correct Cas; however no one has the STONES at the NFL channel, ESPN or others to make that point. Tbat withstanding does not make Peyton any less the QB tbat he is. I believe he is one of the greatest to ever play the posirion

      • MichaelValentino

        CowgirlCas22 TexasBrady Manning has started 14 seasons and reached the SB twice, winning once. I would not say he is over rated but compare him to Staubach, who started eight seasons (he was injured for almost the entire 72 season, attempting only 20 passes that year), went 82-28 over those 8 seasons, took his team to four SBs, winning two and losing two others by a total of 8 pts. For good or bad, QBs are judged by SBs. Favre started 19 seasons and went 1-1 in SBs. Until Terrell Davis arrived, Elway’s first three SB teams were known for getting blown away in each of their SB appearances. Elway’s Broncos were not even competitive until Davis gave them a great running attack. Manning is great; so was Elway. I’d take Montana, Staubach and Brady over both of them.

    • Football Mensa

      Wow 3-13 huh ? Talk about mutiny in Dallas if that transpires.  Texas Brady let me tell you what training camp battle to watch. Gavin Escobar for Dallas vs Larry Warford for Detroit. Watch to see who has the bigger impact on their respective teams.
      @Cas…Cas, P Manning is the most overrated player in history. He is a good player there is no denying that. Brady however is better. Brady did more with less than Manning ever did. There are many quarterbacks I would take over Manning. One of the reasons Manning is so respected is because of his attitude. he is a likeable guy and is respectful of other players and people in general. BTW I love Elway. He brought some defensively inept teams to the superbowl. He too played with mediocre running backs until Davis came along.

      • Californy

        Football Mensa I think Paytan a good QB 7 of 11 years he has thrown for 2 to 1 Touch down to interception ration, and is the NFL leader in total yards passed.  He also made a Offensive line in total disarray into the 4th best line in the NFL despite not having a great RB.  In no way do I see him over rated at all.

        • Californy Football Mensa lmao put him behind Romos’ OL for a couple weeks and tell me he isn’t over rated!!!! Do you even watch football? he has been one of the least sacked QB’s year after year for his entire career and has about the worst mobility!

        • Californy

          CowgirlCas22 Football Mensa Manning being one of the least sack QB is not his fault, he has good OC protecting him.  Look at Denver Offensive line and the protection schemes they run for Manning, he doesnt throw the deep ball that Romo throws in Dallas.  That on JG and his lack of knowledge in protecting his QB. But look at Manning he had 50 yards less than Romo despite being left for dead in the NFL and 37 years old..

  • cjwright

    The lack of Cowboys in the HOF still infuriates me. It is not so much the many Cowboys that are not in the HOF as it is the huge number of players on other teams that have less impressive career stats, fewer Super Bowl appearances/wins, and less All-Pro and Pro Bowl awards that many Cowboys not in the HOF, yet are still in the HOF.

    • cjwright  At this point I think we should do a series on players that should be in the HOF. What do you think?

    • Californy I don’t even consider Deion a Real Cowboy.

  • Californy

    The boys are behind Washington and NY in the east in representative in the Hall of fame.,  The Cowboys are also behind GB, & Chicago in that department, but these other teams have been around like 50 plus more years than the boys too

  • Californy

    The number are somewhat misleading but at least they are consistent for the other teams.  Many player mention base on the fact they played on these teams.

  • Californy

    Jackie Smith Spend most of his career with the Cardinals also.

    • Californy I am going to start doing articles about Cowboys who should be in the HOF. Drew Pearson Ed Jones, Cliff Harris, Charlie Waters, Leon Lett, Harvey Martin, Darren Woodson, etc

      • Californy

        CowgirlCas22 Californy There are many good player on that list.  I dont comment on these articles because I believe we should focus more on today players, living in the past is nice remember these player but it only get me more depress so i try to stay away from these articles. Good Luck Cowgril

      • MichaelValentino

        CowgirlCas22 Californy I think you can make a case for everyone on that list except for Lett. I just don’t see him being HOF worthy, nor ROH worthy. He was a solid tackle for sure, just not on par with John Randle, a DT from Lett’s era who is in the Hall. I think, from this list, the best arguments can be made for Woodson, Harris, Pearson and  Martin – in that order. I liked Waters more than Harris, but I think Harris earned more awards and even made the all 70s NFL team. But I back any DC player for Canton.

      • MichaelValentino

        CowgirlCas22 Californy Also, this list has to include Chuck Howley and Lee Roy Jordan.

  • Wade Miller

    I think Leon Lett is the most underrated Cowboy of all-time
    the way he could consistently collapse a pocket from the inside was amazing. If not for the trouble he got himself into he’d have made many more probowls

  • avrgeguy24

    romo is the most overrated player ever and why waste time talking about the cowboys they are not even a playoff team

  • avrgeguy24

    you should thanked nfl.com they include a cowboys player and also nfl players vote for that nfl top 100 list

  • avrgeguy24

    cowboys are a great team in the 90’s.When is the last time they even play in the SB 1996.It’s not anti cowboys bias its why waste time talking about below average team

    • avrgeguy24 anyone who knows anything about football would comprehend that a players individual performance can not and should not be based on what a “TEAM” does as a whole. As far as Romo goes, how can someone call an undrafted guy over rated lol. Look at all the 1st round picks in the league and compare the numbers. Those guys were over rated. Considering the Cowboys are the only NFL team in history to have 20 consecutive winning seasons, have 5 super bowl titles, and the largest fan base in the NFL, no matter how much you want to hate on them, they will still get higher TV ratings, sell more tickets, and have more fans than whatever team you choose to like.
