Found July 02, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
DeMarcus Ware is one of the premier sack artists in the NFL. He has amassed 99.5 sacks over his seven-year career, and his career-high is 20, which is 2.5 sacks shy of Michael Strahan’s single-season record. Jared Allen had 22 sacks for the Vikings last season and recently said he thinks 25 sacks is possible. He even cited Ware as a player who could do it. “With that coming from Jared Allen, who had 22 last year, the sky’s the limit,” Ware told Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News in response. “I’ll also flip it back on him, and say, he can do the same thing, and also, Jason Babin. They’re playing really well. But it’s all about how the season goes. If it’s more of a passing season, we’re probably going to have more sacks.” More passing plays in the NFL has created more opportunities for sacks, but I still think 25 is going to be really difficult to reach unless the NFL goes to an 18-game season. Both Ware and Allen were on pace to break Strahan’s record midway through last season,

Ranking the Top 12 Quarterbacks Going into 2012: Where Does Eli Manning Stand?

You hear the debates all the time as to who the best quarterback in the NFL is right now, whether a quarterback is "elite" or not, and why a quarterback can or can't be considered a "franchise" signal caller. New York Giants' Eli Manning was one of the most polarizing candidates for the debate going into last season. Last season, after Manning won his...

A Lot of Sack: Jared Allen and DeMarcus Ware Should Learn Their History

Conspiracy theorists and New York Giant haters can kvetch and moan about it all they desire, but it won’t change anything.   On January 6, 2002, the last day of the 2001 regular season, Michael Strahan took possession of the NFL’s single-season sack record after a controversial sacking of Brett Favre.

Bennett feels Romo was playing favorites

Now that he's no longer second fiddle to Jason Witten, former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett apparently thinks Tony Romo is playing out of tune.

But in doing so, he took an indirect shot at Romo and his...

Michael Irvin and Michael Vick Warn Rookies That Your Friends Will Turn On You

Specifically with the Michael Vick case I saw it happening even before it happened. Vick was trying to protect the homies and the homies turned on him. Vick was a professional NFL quarterback, he didn’t have the time or knowledge to run a Dog Fighting enterprise, it was a hobby he left for his crew to attend to. But, it was Vick who spent the most time in jail while his “friends”...
