Despite what Warren Sapp says, if DeMarcus Ware were an ant, he could probably find a picnic. That was an interesting analogy by Sapp. In actual application it’s completely illogical. An ant’s job is to find food. I think we can all agree on that. When you see ants marching in a line to scavenge food, they are following a pheromone put out by a scout ant. Any scout ant that is as good at its job as DeMarcus Ware is at his is one prolific ass ant.
DeMarcus Ware might be the best in the world at getting to the quarterback. Mr. QB Killa wasn’t half the QB killa that Ware has been since he came into the league. In addition, off the field, Ware is a class act — adopting children and such. However, since he doesn’t scream and yell, folks like Sapp will always accuse him of being a poor leader. Tony Romo has had the exact same tag slapped on him by Sapp for precisely the same reasons. But, constant vocalization has never been the requirement of a leader. Not to mention, Sapp never played with either player. How does he know? Anything he’s been told off the record is one sided hearsay.
Yesterday, Ware — almost on cue — spent a great deal of time working with rookie Tyron Smith. Ware was teaching him the tricks of his trade. What better way to learn than to be taught by the best pass rusher in the NFL? Seems like a fine example of leadership to me.
Maybe if Ware didn’t pose for pictures like this first example below and did more things like the second example, he wouldn’t have his leadership skills questioned. I’ll take the first photo. —
