The Dallas Cowboys are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bears. The defense struggled to stop the Bears offense allowing them to score on each of their possessions, except the final won when they took a knee to run out the clock.
The Cowboys failed to generate any kind of pass-rush really, and that had some people wondering about whether defensive end DeMarcus Ware’s lack of production was because of age or injury. Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones had an answer.
“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.”
