Facing DeMarcus Ware of the Dallas Cowboys would be a daunting thought for any offensive lineman — the former Troy standout has taken quarterbacks down 94 different times since the Dallas Cowboys took him in the first round of the 2005 NFL draft.
Ware's form is even more impressive when you look at it in high resolution, which Red Bull recently did with a video showing Ware getting around an offensive lineman (who resembles Arizona Cardinals left tackle Levi Brown in his pass-blocking principles):
Yep — it's all there. The inside step to the outside spin, the dip-and-rip, and the sack. That was the "Anatomy of a Sack," and we'll see how the Miami Dolphins deal with what Ware brings to the field on Thanksgiving Day. Ware already has 14.0 sacks this season, leading the league and putting him just behind the pace to break Michael Strahan's single-season sack record of 22.5.
He'll be going up against former Cowboys tackle Marc Colombo, who I call "The Bagboy" in a Gruden-esque fashion (because he gives up a lot of sacks — geddit?), so that number could go up quickly.
