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,

The final 10 names on the NFL Network's list of Top 100 Players of 2012 were revealed last week and Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware landed at No. 6.
Ware, who placed at No. 12 in 2011, said on the unveiling show that, "You're never happy until you're No. 1."
But that doesn't mean Ware didn't feel honored to be chosen as the second-highest...
Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware told the Dallas Morning News that he agrees with owner Jerry Jones, with the fact that their window to win a Super Bowl is closing.
“I feel like from my standpoint, we’re a better team than we were last year, and it’s going to show on the field,” Ware said. “Jerry saying that the window’s closing, I’m with Jerry....
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...
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. Needing just half a sack to tie Mark Gastineau’s 1984 record of 22 quarterback...
For years, and despite two championships for New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, many pundits have argued that Dallas Cowboys signal caller Tony Romo is the cream of the crop in the NFC East. However, after only a few short months with Big Blue, tight end Martellus Bennett strongly disagrees with that assertion, and anxiously awaits his time on the field with the two-time...
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.
Bennett, now with the New York Giants, had nothing but praise for his new quarterback, Eli Manning, in a recent interview on the Newark Star-Ledger's website, nj.com. But in doing so, he took an indirect shot at Romo and his...

The 2012 season is about two months away, and it's a perfect time to rank NFL players by position. A combination of factors such as stats, overall performance, etc., determine where players are ranked. Analysis will be added very soon, I just wanted to get these rankings done first.

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”...
