    The answer is NO everyone else out there is not at the level of a Ware or
    Spencer and wouldn't stand a chance against RG 3

    Sure. You can plug just about any guy into the lineup and generate 11.5 sacks and 5 FF.

    He will probably stay within the scheme and not free lance given his injuries which might be a benefit against the zone read.

    ignoring the reality of injuries is just plain dumb

    yea, wouldn't you like to be hunkered down in a bunker with some of them...just knowing they have your back? Good Lord..........I'm really looking forward to this game myself, and expect a victory in their yard.

    This is how see it.

    Ware will have to play more disciplined which is something he has not done well all season. He has relied on talent alone for too long; athletic plays he used to make on a regular basis are few and far between these days. Playing with an injury will hopefully force him to play within his limitations and therefore play soundly if not spectacularly.

    The key to a win, however, is how well Crawford, Lissemore, Hatcher, Spears, Sims, Conner, Albright, and Peprah play. They have to be better than average for Dallas to have a chance.

    You mean...if there were real bullets firing instead of accusatory message board posts? Yeah, I don't think I'm going in that particular bunker. :)

    That said, there are some really good negatively-inclined posters here at CZ. Most of those guys express their legitimate concerns and then move on to other arguments.

    That's very different from the "we can't possibly win because I hate Jerry Jones and I want to make sure everybody else knows how unhappy I am about it" sort of post. That mentality, I just don't understand.

    Butler is 1/4 the man ware, so whoever it is playing there's no difference at this point

    Butler's a pretty good pass rusher in his own right. We'll end up exposed in coverage and the running game, and lose something in terms of pass rush, but he's a legitimate pass rush threat on his own, at least. Between him and Hatcher and Spencer, we'll still get decent pressure.

    Yes, Butler can rush the passer OK. I'm more concerned about him playing the run. Washington's read-option with RGIII and Morris often puts a strain on the OLB.

    Spencer has been our pass rush the past 6 games anyway.

    If anything, Ware may not get to the QB but he has enough core and lower body strength to be occupy a tackle and collapse the pocket bull rushing.

    We'd better find a way to adjust. Maybe this is where Cooley needs to earn his money by chip blocking Hatcher or Spencer for us. He's really our only TE that can block at this point. I've noticed Shanahan has less of a tendency to keep a TE in to block on passing downs than did Gibbs.

    On the first drive of the game Hatcher came through unscatched...

    Ware just needs to stop the run and stop shooting 5 yards past the Qb..I'll be happy if he does that.

    Stoping the run is the most important piece of this game. Spencer and Ware have to be on their A games.

    Ware and the entire Cowboys defense is going to have to play very good Sunday night or we're going to witness another win or stay home debacle.

    Ware and the rest of the front 7 delivered a decent amount of pressure in the Thanksgiving game, hopefully somebody can step up tomorrow.

    Seems like Ware should have been IR'd rather than cyborged after the Pittsburgh game, not sure that he isn't more than a decoy out there at this point.
