You can see that he doesn't seem to trust this move as much because he tries to bull rush to a much greater degree than I can ever remember, but he's not powerful enough for this to be a go-to strategy.
As a result, our pass rush has really tapered off because we don't have anyone else who is a good pure rusher. That needs to be a top priority after the season.
Then get him a stud across from him - ahem Von Miller - and then let's see how offenses double Mr. Ware.
In regard to Mr. Ware's losing his skills, I will quote Mark Twain upon hearing about his death.
“The report of my death was an exaggeration.”
