DeMarcus Ware was interviewed by NFL.com while he is in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl and he offered answers to a series of important questions, including the locker room chemistry.
You can watch the entire interview here. But to summarize, Ware says that Terrell Owens was not a distraction for the team, and neither was Adam “Pacman” Jones.
He says the biggest problems for the Cowboys was gelling on offense when Roy Williams came in. Williams and Tony Romo didn’t have enough time together to become productive and that very likely played voodoo on the offensive play calling. Either that, or Jason Garrett was just that bad—and that’s my own addition because Ware doesn’t say it.
The interview is also interesting because Ware is asked about his free agent tag. And he’s likely seeking a $40 million guaranteed contract, which is just monstrous. And he’ll probably get it. At the end, he tells Jerry Jones he loves him and that he’ll lead the defense and help take the Cowboys “to the top.”
Ware also says Terrell Owens will remain a Dallas Cowboys, an issue that fans are mixed on.
So, a week after the Super Bowl, and a month since the Cowboys season ended, we’re still wondering: Where’s the Beef?
What major changes are happening? Dan Reeves, a former Cowboys player and Broncos-Falcons head coach, lasted one damn day in Valley Ranch before he left because of Good Ol’ Jerry. Reeves, who was supposed to help consult the Cowboys on a makeover, reportedly wanted the Cowboys to do away with Terrell Owens, a move that Jerry Jones looks to not be favoring.
