Rob Ryan: DeMarcus Ware 'best I've ever seen'
He compared Ware to Hall of Fame outside linebacker Lawrence Taylor, a legend Belichick coached as the Giants’ defensive coordinator.
Not even that was high enough praise, in the opinion of Rob Ryan. The Cowboys’ defensive coordinator couldn’t think of anyone worthy of being compared to Ware.
“I mean, I saw Superman I and II but never saw the third one,” Ryan said. “I know Lawrence Taylor is obviously a fantastic player, but the best player I’ve ever seen on defense is DeMarcus Ware without a doubt.”
Ware has led the NFL in sacks in two of the last three years and ranks near the top with seven sacks so far this season. He’s just about as dominant against the run, a combination that leaves the loquacious Ryan struggling to find words to adequately describe the man.
“I mean, you can’t describe him,” Ryan said. “I don’t know how to describe him. In my limited vocabulary, I can’t describe him, so maybe one of you guys can. But he’s outstanding. I mean, it’s ridiculous how good he is.”
