Cowboys OLB Ware Has A Big Fan In The Media

DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – The Dallas Cowboys are famously known as “America’s Team,” a moniker that instantly lends itself to the team being under the constant scrutiny of critics and supporters nationwide.

For those who have paid attention to the Cowboys’ (4-4) season so far, there have been a string of hampering injuries, disappointing performances on offense and an average performance on defense—a far cry from what was highly touted during the pre-season under the new Rob Ryan regime.

Amidst the onslaught of negativity surrounding the Cowboys, former New York Giants quarterback and CBS NFL analyst Phil Simms joined me on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas Wednesday morning to point out some positive factors working for the team, namely, linebacker DeMarcus Ware.

Simms’ accolades for Ware are high, so much so, that he even names Ware as one-half of a prestigious duo.

“He truly, truly is a great NFL player,” he said. “There’s not a lot of great players in the NFL, but he [Ware] is one.”

Ware has been a sack machine throughout his career, and this year is no different. Through eight games, Ware has 12.0 sacks and is on pace to break Michael Strahan’s single-season record of 22.5.

Should he break the mark, Ware can pretty much count on a trip to Canton for an induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, once he’s elegible.

“He and Darrelle Revis [cornerback New York Jets] definitely. They’re on a different planet than everyone else.”

    I would like to say that it was a BIG slap in the face to have the Cowboys Game stop and changed over to another game in the 3rd quarter. As a Vet from 1976 to be watching the Cowboys on Veterans Day Weekend in a city that is a huge part of the military and the fan base so strong to the point that the Cowboys would do there preseason practice here in San Antonio, then to allow this to happen is just wrong.

    I would hope that you have some control about your programming there but I guess not.
    Sorry to say but I hope KENS 5 and CBS Sports never show a Cowboys game again. For what happen you have to say “what is the point of showing the game at all”.

    God Bless
