Dallas Cowboys fans are divided about Tony Romo and his role as quarterback. Some blame him for the woes of the franchise with his interceptions and turn overs. Other’s find faults elsewhere within the organization whether it’s the offensive line, or Jerry “General Manager” Jones.
But nevertheless GM Jerry Jones gave Romo a new 6 year $108 million dollar contract. Some fans, most fans maybe, groaned with frustration. He got more guaranteed money than every player in NFL history, except for one: Tom Brady, 3 time Super Bowl Champion.
The Cowboys have a defensive leader in DeMarcus Ware, one of the best, if not the best, playing his position in the NFL.
“I feel like everybody is deserving to whatever is given to him, but at the end of the day, to me it’s put up or shut up,” Ware said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m just being straight-up honest with you. Get out there and be productive, and that’s with any player. Whatever they get, they’re deserving of it. You just got to get out there and play and I know he can be and will be the quarterback that is going to be the quarterback that is going to take us to the next level.”
Ware said all of this on Sirius XM NFL Radio on Thursday. He maintains his support oddly at the end, but still tells him it’s time. DeMarcus Ware has had his leadership questioned just like Tony Romo. He has been accused of being to quiet and not vocal enough. Maybe this is him expanding his role as a leader, maybe he is fed up.
