DeMarcus Ware vs. Mike Martz

The Dallas Cowboys know that Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz isn't exactly a max-protection guy. He likes to line up with four wide receivers and let his quarterback fend for himself, as Jon Kitna knows all too well. That means that Cowboys All-Pro outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware might not see as many double-teams as usual. ESPNDallas.com's Tim MacMahon says that Ware's looking forward to Sunday for that very reason.
"Any offensive coordinator needs to worry about protection because we've got a lot of guys coming -- me, Bradie James, Keith Brooking, Anthony Spencer,” Ware said. “That's what we do. We're a really good pass-rush team. We're going to be coming."

Those are pretty strong words coming from the normally mild-mannered Ware. Something tells me that he recently watched the 1993 instant classic, "Tombstone" with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer playing Wyatt Earp and an extremely pale Doc Holliday. Some of you will recall what Earp said to Ike Clanton, a member of the infamous Cowboys gang, toward the end of the film: "You tell 'em I'm coming ... and hell's coming with me, you hear?"

Earp would later lead the Americans to an improbable hockey win over the Russians.
