    DeMarcus Ware No. 12 on NFL top players list; Warren Sapp: Ware needs to be a ‘more demonstrative’ leader

    By Jon Machota / Special Contributor
    jmachota@dallasnews.com


    During his video highlight clip, former Cowboys teammate Martellus Bennett called Ware a “genetic mutant” that opponents can’t do anything about.

    Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway said, “I think the best pure pass rusher would have to be DeMarcus Ware. Ten, 12, 14 sacks, he’s legitimate every year.”

    During the hour-long show to discuss players 11-20 on the list, it was mentioned that Ware has fallen behind Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, the 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, as the best pass rusher in the state of Texas.

    Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp quickly came to Ware’s defense.
    “Let’s not be so quick to anoint J.J. Watt the best pass rusher in the state of Texas just yet,” Sapp said. “When you get to triple digits [in sacks] … and they’re still getting double digits every year, I’m going to wait until he is thrown off the throne and not just dethroned. J.J. Watt’s good but he’s no DeMarcus Ware going after the quarterback, yet.”

    Sometimes you don't fully appreciate what you got, until you aint got it no more.

    Ware & Witten are 2 of those players, they will go down as the best we have ever had and I have been watching the Cowboys for 35 years.

    I thought for being injured, he did an admirable job. He, Dez & Romo are some of the toughest guys on the team.

    I love Jason Witten as much as the next guy, but he's not on the same level as Ware in terms of legacy and how they impacted the game. Barring some sort of injury, Ware will likely go down as one of the 5 greatest pass rushers of all time. LT, White, Smith, Deacon and Ware. He's a generational talent.

    I'm excited to see how he makes the transition to DE. There haven't been many, if any, players who have played at a HOF level at both OLB and DE. Ware has a chance to do that.

    I think he'll do fine as a DE. I think he plays the olb position like a DE anyway. I'm happy to hear that he'll be getting after the qb even more in the tampa 2.

    I'm a huge fan of Ware's, but I don't personally view him as a top 15 player in the league.

    He did an outstanding job considering he was hurt for the 2nd half of the season...

    That was Michael Bennett, not Martellus. Way to go, Jon.

    Only because of the positions that they play. If they made an all-time greatest list right now, there is a good chance that Witten is higher on the TE list than Ware is on the pass-rusher list.

    He's this generations Bob Lilly, Randy White & Charles Haley.

    All had different personalities and responsibilities but they all possessed that same rare "game changing ability" that forced opposing teams to change their philosophies. You're #1 focus has to be stopping all of them or you might as well focus on your next opponent.

    As great as Ware has been, Man to Man, most within the NFL will admit playing OLB has only reduced Ware's sack totals and individual stats. OLB is one of the more complex cerebral positions on Defense & very rarely does a player possess the both the brain, instincts and athleticism to judged in the same way as a DE.
