Defensive tackle La'Roi Glover is wrapping up his third season with the Cowboys. And Glover learned Wednesday that for the third straight year, his season will end with an appearance in the Pro Bowl in Honolulu.

He was one of four Cowboys so honored, joining guard Larry Allen, tight end Jason Witten and safety Roy Williams in the NFL's showcase of its top stars. If there was any of the Dallas honorees get a big head over their selections, Dallas head coach Bill Parcells always is around, and has a way of keeping his players thinking "team first."

"I congratulated the players," Parcells said. "Hopefully this will be the start of something better.

"But I really don't have any feelings about it. I don't have any control over it, and I don't vote for my own players."

Not exactly a Hall of Fame campaign, is it?

To Glover, Parcells' reaction was just as it should be.

"It's a tremendous honor," he said. "The fans vote, the players vote, the coaches vote, and getting picked shows respect for the job you do. Really, I'm humbled by it."

Glover clearly was appreciative of the honor, but said some other teammates got slighted.

"I always feel like more guys could have been picked," said Glover, who declined to name those other Cowboys who should have been named to the list.
