Ranking the Dallas Cowboys' Most Irreplaceable Players
LM Otero/Associated Press

If the Dallas Cowboys want to get into the playoffs there are some players they cannot afford to lose. These players are those that bring enormous impact both on and off the field. They are the linchpins to the Cowboys accomplishing their short-term and long-term goals.

These players have not had the best of luck in this respect lately. The knee injury to defensive leader Sean Lee was a huge blow to the Cowboys. Lee was expected to be the playmaker and driving force behind a much-improved defense. However, since the injury, you have to wonder if the Cowboys' defense will be good enough to take them to get to the playoffs. 

If the Cowboys expect to get over the 8-8 hump and finally reach the playoffs, the players on this list must remain healthy. 

The criteria used for this ranking is based on how much production and impact these players give the Cowboys, the importance of their position and how much of a drop-off in play there is when their backups fill in.
