I used to think he was overrated, but after watching the packers games this year, the dude cannot be stopped. It doesn't matter where he lines up, he completely overpowers anyone on the otherside. And he hits hard everytime he makes a tackle.
But back to the original question..... i think ware is better but the defense would take more of a hit without sean lee than without ware. Lee is the captain making all of the calls out there and he is always around the ball. If there is a fumble on a play in his area, he is the one recovering it. It's nice to see a cowboy player able to pick up fumbles for a change.
Matthews can't be stopped? Not only did he not record a sack against Seattle, he didn't even get a solo tackle. And if you want to just count this year, I'll also take 4 sacks and two forced fumbles over 6 sacks and 0 forced fumbles.
