He will be lining up at right defensive end wearing a white uniform and Cowboys blue No. 94. He will be large at 6-foot-4 258 pounds and he will be fast having run the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds during a combine test before his rookie season. Let's put those numbers together again — 6-4 258 4.5. They add up to freaky. He has the durability of iron having never missed one of the 132 games his Dallas Cowboys have played since he entered the league in 2005 as a man of Troy as the No. 11 overall draft pick. He is already the Cowboys' all-time sack leader and ranks 17th all time in the NFL with 115 — four this season. He is DeMarcus Ware the greatest and baddest of Cowboys. This guy Chris Clark is your life. Come Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas Clark the Broncos' left tackle will be lining up against one of the NFL's all-time best pass rushers. "He'll be on my side" Clark said. "He's been a good player for a long time. Actually he's a great player. He's still playing at a high level. Just got to prepare and get ready for guys like that. Playing with high intensity is a must for me." Clark was late to football later still to the Broncos' starting lineup. The youngest of eight brothers and sisters Clark grew up in New Orleans doing a little bit of everything but playing organized sports. His father Lawrence operated a forklift on the riverfront loading and unloading cargo from the ships. Adele was a stay-at-home mom. To the baby of the family a strong influence was Lawrence Jr. the next-to-youngest brother. "I didn't even like football" Clark said. "But he started playing and he kind of forced me into it because I became bigger than him. I didn't like it at first but I just grew to like it and now I love it." Clark didn't put on pads until he was 15. Now he's a 6-foot-5 305-pound blindside protector of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
