After bringing down Michael Vick four times in last Sunday’s 34-7 loss to the Eagles in Philly--arguable the only real bright spot in that game--DeMarcus Ware is just 2.5 sacks away from overtaking Jim Jeffcoat as the franchise leader in terms of sacks.
But with Dallas sitting at 3-4, Ware isn’t all that interested in discussing the bit of history he’s poised to make in the coming weeks (or, at the rate he’s going, days).
"I don't even think about [it]," said Ware, per ESPN Dallas. "You're going out there and playing hard and giving it your all with the opportunity that you got. Just make sure you take advantage of them, that's the way I see it. There are not too many missed opportunities because they're many years I missed a sack or I missed a play. But this year, I'm I'm not missing those plays cause I know what it feels like to miss those plays and I'm not going to miss those plays."
Ware is currently second in the NFL with 12 sacks (he trails Minnesota’s Jared Allen), but he’s more focused on Seattle--and the idea of a season-changing winning streak--than any individual statistical achievement.
"I'm thinking about Seattle because we need to win this game because if we get some wins under our belt you never know where we end up at the end," Ware said. "Green Bay was 8-6 when they won the Super Bowl. If you get a little burst, things get to clicking you never know what happens."
