Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones was forced to answer questions about DeMarcus Ware after a embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. At the heart of it was whether Ware’s lack of production was from injury or age.
“I don’t know, as far as evaluating where he is at his talent level as it regards to age,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “He’s a remarkable athlete. That shouldn’t be the case at all. He should actually be in the prime of his career, candidly, strength-wise, explosion-wise. That’s one of the things we got to, I think, count on is him having more impact in the game as he moves away from his injury.
“He’s feeling better and we should be able to count on better production from him.”
Ware then address the issue himself.
“Health wise, I’m fine, I feel good, I was running around out there, I didn’t get tired,” Ware said, via ESPN.com. “At the end of the day I haven’t been playing like the DeMarcus of the past and I got to get back to that.
“It’s December (and) people always say the light turns on in December and you set yourself apart from everybody and I got to get back on track with that.”
