    “My mentality is, I have my own expectations, I know what I need to do to be successful and help this team be where we need to be, Lawrence said. “It don’t matter what everybody else’s expectations is, it’s about the team.”

    The Boise State product took it one step further when asked to clarify those expectations. Ware, now the Cowboys’ franchise sack leader, began his career with eight sacks as a rookie. Lawrence said he expects to do better.

    “My expectation is to go out and get 10 sacks, 10-plus sacks – whatever coach needs me to do,” he said. “I really don’t think coach really cares about the numbers, he just cares about us doing our assignment and job, really.”

    I like what I'm hearing out of Lawrence so far. I sure hope he turns out to be a Cowboy great.

    If he goes out there and gets 10 sacks it'll be a good start.

    8+ would be a stellar rookie campaign.

    8+ would be defensive rookie of the year numbers if he played in another uniform.

    I think he's going to be very good and I like his confidence. I'm hoping Lawrence and some others bring nastiness/attitude to this defense. I think he'll get 8+ sacks and quite a few pressures.

    If he's going to, we'll start hearing about him being unblockable here in the next week or so. It's what we regularly heard about Ware, anyway. Anything less than 'unblockable' and I'm tempering my enthusiasm for an 8+ sack season.

    I really can't envision him not beating out Mincey unless he is horrid against the run. Ware was thrown into the fire...

    He's very unlikely to get 10. But he's also just talking about expectations. Personally, I'd rather have him put a big number out there publicly, and then have to work his butt off to cash the check his big mouth just wrote.
