After former Dallas Cowboys defender DeMarcus Ware wins a ring in Super Bowl 50, here’s why Cowboys fans should be proud.
There’s nothing about DeMarcus Ware you can really hate. Probably the only thing to hate about him is the fact there is nothing to hate.
The guy is a world-class citizen; a great ambassador to the game of NFL. He is a hybrid player, one of the best ever to play his position.

And now, this former Dallas Cowboys member is a Super Bowl champion.
It’s easy to be a little envious, perhaps hateful if you will, about Ware’s new success. Sure, he left. He became a free agent, taking his talents elsewhere. And Dallas fans dislike the fact he skipped north to Denver.
But he wanted to stay. He wanted to be a Cowboy for life. He became a Bronco, choosing to sign outside the NFC East.
The problem was that the king of general managers in Jerry Jones had handicapped our salary cap, forcing the team to be decisive and frugal with their coin.
Ware did what he had to do, and there’s no faulting that.
Ware may have earned a ring as a member of the Denver Broncos, but his heart is sealed inside the star. He’ll end his career with praise and honor, but more importantly, he’ll retire as a Cowboy.
Going back to his departure, as a fan, it’s to simple to spit and wash your hands clean of his number 94 jersey in your closet. He’s done with us, so I’m done with him, you say.
I am candid about my feelings on this blog when one player leaves for another squad (read: Jason Hatcher).
But this situation is different. Ware is different. It’s like seeing one of your own “make it” and that he will always be one of us.
Ware was a first-round selection who was destined to produce big things. Former head coach Bill Parcells saw it. The city saw it and embraced his talents and charisma.
It just wasn’t meant to be in Dallas, in the end, but that’s okay. Ware’s fingerprints are now all over the Lombardi Trophy, trapped in time and part of history, which is to say — can never be erased.
And while he squares himself now as a world champion, no Dallas Cowboy fan should be angry about his new status. One of ours made it.
This should make you happy.
I know I am.
