moosehead said:Pro Bowl 1st 3 seasons in the league, lead the league in tackles in 2 of the 3 yrs he played and was 2nd in 08. Won the Butkus Award last yr for the leagues best LB. I may be a bit of a Homer, but for a 3 year stretch there has been none better!

PRO BOWLS mean nothing. It is a fan vote and ocne you are in chances are you will be voted in for awhile
moosehead said:I think Ware is by far and away one of the best defensive players in the game. That being said kinda hard to compare him to Willis as he's a Rush LB in a 3-4 scheme. He'll never come close to Willis' tackle numbers or pass defense numbers ie pass break ups or int's. But Willis won't ever touch DWare's sack numbers or qb pressure numbers. It really is an apple or oranges debate with those 2.
moosehead said:He's not really a LB though, he's basically a DE. How many plays is he in pass coverage? I bet less that 5 a game! P.S.- that was me agreeing with ya
