Denver Broncos pass rusher DeMarcus Ware is one of the best players at his position in the history of the league. He deserves a Lombardi Trophy to be added to his resume…
DeMarcus Ware hadn’t ever even been to a conference championship game before last Sunday. Now, he’s preparing for the first Super Bowl of his career, perhaps the one and only. Obviously, he’s taking time to soak it all in…
Ware is one of the most deserving players in the NFL of a Super Bowl title, if there are any. Ware has been a dominant pass rusher from day one with the Dallas Cowboys, and after getting cut by Jerry Jones and signing with the Broncos, he has seemingly discovered a fountain of youth and is playing some of his best football, when healthy.
Case in point, Ware led the Broncos with seven hits on Tom Brady this past Sunday, doing literally everything in his power to make sure the Broncos won the game. He will have to do much of the same in 10 days if the Broncos are to defeat the likely NFL MVP Cam Newton and his Carolina Panthers.
One of the best competitors in the league, Ware has set the example both on and off the field in his 10 plus years in the NFL. He came to Denver in 2014, which might have been the best thing to ever happen to Von Miller, who has always looked up to Ware.
With two of the best pass rushers in the league, the Broncos have been racking up the sacks. Ware and Miller helped lead the Broncos to the highest sack total in the NFL over the past two seasons, and gave them one of the most potent weapons the NFL has ever known.
When you have one-on-one matchups with Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware on the edges, it makes life very difficult for opposing quarterbacks.
Despite having the designation as a ‘cap casualty’ in Dallas, the Broncos knew that when Ware hit the market, it was an opportunity to add a rare player with a specific set of skills that could help get their team to exactly this point — within one victory of their third Super Bowl title in franchise history and one win from cementing Ware’s legacy as not only one of the best to ever rush the quarterback, but a champion of the game.
