    A sack, stuffed a run for a loss, 2 QB pressures and a nice play called back for a penalty. He's still a cowboy at heart so we can just pretend a part of our D line looked good

    If this were December 2014 and Ware could actually practice and even looked good in a game, I might care a tiny bit, a very tiny bit.

    I think almost all (Cowboy fans in general) were in agreement that it was time to move on from Ware. It is a done deal. The right decision was made at the time given the facts. It may turn out to be a bad decision, but that is football. Win some, lose some.

    This team needs an interior presence far more than an outside passrusher. If you can't stop the run the other team don't even need to pass. Good luck to Ware but we don't need the large salary of an aging vet.

    actually we need both an interior presence and outside rush.

    Seattle didn't play four of their starting offensive linemen. This meant nothing.

    Ware looked good in the preseason and early in the season last year as well. Then his body broke down. It will probably happen again unless Denver limits his snaps, which they will likely do.

    So Denver will be smart and get great production from the guy?

    Sounds like a hell of a plan.

    wish we had done that. we never gave Ware any rest except a series or two during the games. Of course that was because we never got anyone else that was a threat the Offense had to plan for.

    Ware will get rest as needed in Denver because they have some other pieces around him that will help make that easier for sure.

    I'm definitely rooting for Ware to do a great job and since I know Dallas won't get near the Superbowl, unless they're buying tickets to it, I am certainly going to hope that Denver gets back to and wins the Superbowl so that Ware gets his ring.

    I don't know. The Seahawks gave up 44 sacks last season, which ranked 20th in the league. They were ranked 32nd in the league with a sack percentage of 9.5%. Maybe it means the Seahawks still haven't fixed one weakness they had last season.

    Makes it easier to do this when you have good pieces around him and better depth. Neither which we had his last seasons here. So we were forced to have him out there as much as possible.

    I'm rooting for ware but this is no different than his start to last season.

    Remember all the pre season hype of Ware looking like a mad man in tc? And then he started the season with virtually identical pass rushing stats to Robert Quinn, the far and away best 43 DE last year.

    But then he got hurt @SD and was pretty much a non factor for the remaining 12 weeks.

    He's still elite when healthy, but he won't be healthy.
