Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware was the only member of the Dallas defense to sack Chicago’s Josh McCown in Monday night’s embarrassing, 45-28 loss to the Bears, but it came in the fourth quarter--long, long after the game was out of reach for the visiting team.
After the loss, Ware said he expected more of himself.
On Tuesday Morning, owner and general manager Jerry Jones agreed with Ware’s evaluation, offering up some criticism of his star defensive end.
“I don’t know, as far as evaluating where he is at his talent level as it regards to age,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, per 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.”
Through ten games--he has missed three due to a thigh injury--Ware has 30 tackles, six sacks and an interception.
