More than two months remain until the Dallas Cowboys’ and Washington Redskins’ first meeting of 2012, meaning that for the moment, Cowboys’ outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware--like seemingly everyone else--is just an impressed spectator when it comes to the ‘Skins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Ware has spent his entire career in the NFC East, which has long been one of the better divisions in football in terms of quarterback play. With RG3 joining the ranks of the Eagles’ Michael Vick, the Giants’ Eli Manning and of course the Cowboys’ Tony Romo, the All-Pro sees the division getting that much more competitive.
"That lets you know that it's sort of like a new sheriff in town," Ware said, per ESPN Dallas. "You've got Michael Vick, he runs the ball and plays really well, and now in the division you've got RGIII, he does the same thing. He runs the ball, he's really poised in the pocket and can throw the ball down the field and he got a lot of big plays and the division just got a little more stronger."
Fan or not, we fully expect Ware to play tormentor to Griffin III when the Cowboys see the Heisman winner for the first time, on Thanksgiving Day in Arlington.
