Last season, DeMarcus Ware led the team with 11.5 sacks and he is hoping to improve on those numbers this season. In the team’s season-opener against the NFC East rival New York Giants, Ware failed to record a sack. However, he did generate plenty of pressure.
But that hasn’t stopped Ware from making an honest effort to get to the quarterback faster this week against the Kansas City Chiefs to ensure that he can get in the sack column.
“It feels different not having a sack, but I had 10 pressures last game,” Ware said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I hit him probably about four times if you really want to talk about that. With me, it’s all about getting even more pressure, getting there a little bit faster. We got there, but me, consistently, I got to get there a little bit better.”
Having Ware making game changing plays is crucial to the success of the impressive new-look Cowboys defense, so if he can use this motivation to perform better on the field it will be a welcomed result.
