Ask anyone who knows about the game of football and they'll tell you that NY Giants standout Dexter Lawrence is one of the best defensive tackles in the game. Matter of fact, Lawrence continues to be one of the best pass-rushers as well, which is wild for a guy on the inside.

Lawrence was a Second-Team All-Pro member last year after an incredible season and more electric play has been displayed in 2023. However, people don't think he should be a Pro Bowler? The latest vote totals were shared on Wednesday and Lawrence wasn't even in the Top 10 for DTs. What?

Dexter Lawrence and Saquon Barkley not getting Pro Bowl love is a shame

Lawrence missed the Week 12 win over the Patriots with a hamstring injury, but he was able to be a limited participant in practice on Thursday, which gives him a shot at playing Monday Night Football against the Packers.

Thus far this season, the 6-4, 240-pounder has posted 41 total tackles and four sacks. Offensive linemen have had no answer in trying to slow him down, which has been awesome to see. It's ludicrous to think that some people don't think he's an elite DT in this league.

As for Saquon Barkley, he's also not getting much love, but he also missed a large chunk of the campaign because of an ankle injury suffered against the Cardinals in Week 2. However, when on the field, Barkley has been sensational.

In the 31-19 win over the Commanders, he hauled in two touchdown passes from Tommy DeVito and broke free for some strong runs. When close to 100 percent, No. 26 has looked like one of the best running backs in the NFC. However, plenty of people seem to disagree. Lawrence and Barkley are both Pro Bowlers in our opinion. The disrespect is real for this team.
