Demarcus Ware was the ultimate person on and off the field. He may not have won a Super Bowl in Dallas, but he was basically the only reason our defense was relevant from 2005-2013. If you would’ve taken D-Ware off of that Dallas Cowboys defense then it would’ve been more drastic than taking Sean Lee off the field for our current team. That’s saying a lot because everyone already knows we have a struggling defense, but especially without Sean Lee.
In D-Ware’s 9 years with the Dallas Cowboys he set records and became one of the most likeable players in the league and in the state of Texas. While in Dallas, Ware totaled 117 sacks. Yeah you read that right, 117!!! D-Ware is #1 on the Dallas Cowboys sacks list with this insane number. He has 22.5 more than the next nearest Cowboys, Jim Jeffcoat, who played for the team for 11 years and only had 94.5 sacks. DeMarcus Ware is also ranked 9th among all Dallas Cowboys in tackles with 442. One last category that Ware ranked first among all Cowboys was forced fumbles with 32. This was 12 more than Greg Ellis. The numbers that D-Ware put up while in Dallas were absolutely insane.
Many of you may be wondering why in the world D-Ware came back to Dallas to sign a 1-day deal to retire as a Dallas Cowboy when he won a SB in Denver. I believe he came back because he has a legacy here. You will not find a single person who will argue with the statement that DeMarcus Ware is one of the greatest Dallas Cowboys players of all-time. It’s simply a fact. Many people believe he should be remembered as a Denver Bronco because he won a Super Bowl with them. Unfortunately, the Broncos never got to see the great D-Ware we watched in Dallas for 9 years. Ware won a SB with Denver and we are all so happy for him because he deserves it, but that does not mean he can’t be remembered as a Cowboy too. Although he didn’t win a SB with the Cowboys, D-Ware will always be one of the greats. Just like Tony Romo, DeMarcus didn’t always have the best team around him in Dallas, but they will both be remembered and honored in Dallas forever.
