I started three threads on the topic of exploring the option of trading Demarcus Ware months ago. I was laughed at, called a fool and an idiot and had my threads locked for no reason time and time again. My rationale of trading Ware (even though he is great statistically) for a higher impact player/draft picks based on the needs of the team in the longterm was shot down by most of you guys because he is a "Cowboys All Time Great."
Well, Ware dropped off and declined finishing this year with 11.5 sacks (ranked #11 in the league) and clearly showed last night why he is a liability in run support getting embarrassed time and time again being out of position. His disappearing act at the end of big games and critical offsides penalties throughout the year are definitely getting old. Not saying that Ware was the cause of the loss last night, but he sure did contribute to it. The skins purposely ran to his side last night time and time again.
Jerry Jones can continue to hold onto his "stars" (some who are overpaid-Ware, Witten, Romo, Austin) and cart them out there every year and continue to accept mediocrity (and it seems that some of you guys are happy with that). Or he can bring in someone to make real football decisions and clean house by bringing in some young hungry blue collar guys who wants to play sound fundamental football. The current crew of players is not working and has not worked for the past few years. Why continue to hang on to them, screwing your franchise by letting them get older, decline and continue to get paid? Now these guys are just getting older and more injury prone (Witten, Austin,Ware).
And the first football decision to be made in my eyes is trading Demarcus Ware for first round draft picks.
