    He's going to pass Greene? Players have a production curve and Ware is on the downside of that curve, whether it be by injuries or age his production is falling off and I don't think he gets to Greene.

    Sources: DE DeMarcus Ware could miss Philadelphia game but could also be cleared for practice later in week
    http://cowboysblog.dallasnews.com/2...-uncertain-with-a-strained-thigh-muscle.html/

    While there are reports that the Pro Bowl defender could miss three to four weeks, club officials insist his timetable is day-to-day. He will be checked again Wednesday to see what, if anything, he will be cleared to do in practice.

    He WAS on pace for 10+ sacks until this injury. He may not end up with 10 sacks this season if he can't stay healthy. I also don't agree he should hang it up but at 31 the injuries are bringing him down.

    I think he will. There is zero wrong with Ware's explosion and I'm telling you right now, be in Dallas or elsewhere, he's got a lot of game still left in him IMO.

    I think time is starting to tell he's 31 and the past 2 seasons he can't seem to stay on the field. We've seen him a number of times come off the field having to be treated for something. He just underwent shoulder surgery this past offseason. This reminds me of the recurring injuries Shawne Merriman was going through that caused him to lose his effectiveness. If was one injury after another with Merriman. Ware is not impacting games like he did. Some don't even consider him the Cowboys best defensive player anymore.

    31 and having an injury plagued season. Sounds like he is due for an extension. Jerry has him right where he wants him.

    Merriman was a roid guy. It is typical of guys to get injured more and be way less effective after being on roids for awhile.

    I agree the roids probably caused Merriman's issues. He started having injury problems as soon as he came back from his drug suspension. Usually when players abuse roids and get off them they start having injury problems. They can't recover like they use to and roids can cause joint and tissue damage from prolonged use. However the past couple of seasons it's been one injury after another with Ware and it's causing him to lose effectiveness.

    greene is the only linebacker on your list there and you know damn well strahan is getting in. Ware is currently a DE but he did his work as a OLB and will go down as one of, if not the best ever to play the position.

    He was a pass rusher...DE/OLB doesnt make a difference for what he has done. His job has always been, for the most part, to just get to the quarterback.

    I think he'll play in Philly. His pride is too big. I also think he'll run the wheels off himself because of that same pride. Kinda sad to watch. Some players willpower can override there pain. I think Ware is in so much pain that his willpower can't overcome it. Not a knock on him, cause it seems he's just getting a bad draw every game.

    What else does he do?

    He's dropped into coverage sporadically in his career sure, but its not like he's covering slot receivers or matching up with TEs in the red zone. He's good against the run, but his job in the run game, regardless of position, is to set the edge. The difference between 34 OLB and 43 DE, in his case, is way overblown. When it comes to his legacy, sacks are the only thing that really matter.
