    The Dallas Cowboys have a good problem at the outside linebacker position heading into the off-season that provides the team with a golden opportunity to become an instant title contender in 2013. Outside linebackers Anthony Spencer and Victor Butler are both in contract years and both playing extremely well this season. If the Cowboys were to re-sign both players, it would give Dallas the liberty to possibly trade All-Pro pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware for help in several needy areas, such as the offensive line, defensive end and inside linebacker.

    A lot of Cowboys fans are probably angrily shocked at such a statement, but those who have been fans since the Jimmy Johnson era already know exactly where I’m headed with this.

    When Johnson was hired as the Cowboys’ head coach in 1989, he traded All-Pro running Herschel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings for five players and eight draft picks. This resulted in Dallas acquiring players like Emmitt Smith, Alvin Harper, Darren Woodson and Russell Maryland, who were very instrumental to three Super Bowl wins by Dallas in the early-to-mid-1900s. A player of Ware’s caliber could do the same for the present-day Cowboys.

    I should clarify, I don't think you're stupid, but this article is. Also inevitable, wait long enough and you hear an opposing opinion on every topic, just for the shock value in most cases. Makes me sick. :rolleyes:

    I would think that it would be easier to move Romo instead of Ware when you factor in the cap hits.

    Even if we did this, we'd end if with 2 scandricks, another Doug Free and a Kitna. I wouldn't trust these clowns to find quality for Ware. And yes, the article is pure crap.

    Interviewer - "Why did you retire barry?"
    Barry Sanders - "Because the lions got rid of a lot of good guys that I thought helped our organization and showed me we were in a rebuilding stage."

    Yeah... stellar idea, lets trade away one of our best players when we need them most.

    As good as Ware is we would all be shocked by how little we would get for him in a trade. It would be dumb to do it and wouldn't help the team with the awful players our coaches would pick......

    The cap hit for trading him would be roughly the same as the cap hit for keeping him. That isn't the reason why trading him would be stupid.

    I would try a new a coach before I trade our most feared player.

    Thank you, I have been thinking this very thing since last season, and I've been voicing that opinion after we lost to seatlle

    :banghead: I can not believe that someone would post the most dumbest thing I have ever read on this website. There is no way that the Cowboys would part with Demarcus Ware:bang2: Jerry Jones has done alot of things that most fans do not agree with but he is not that crazy to trade Demarcus Ware!!!

    Can I get an example of how "little" you think we would get for Ware in trade?

    Just curious...

    The guy is smart and he did predict all your reactions

    "A lot of Cowboys fans are probably angrily shocked at such a statement"

    Now i am not saying this is a good or bad idea..an idea that can be done or not...but you all need to take off your fan glasses and look at the overall benefit of the Dallas Cowboys....

    Haven't you learn anything from the 89' trade?

    I actually don't think this is that bad of an idea. I mean does it really hurt just to listen to offers? Just cause you listen doesn't mean you have to commit
