DeMarcus Ware vs. Shawne Merriman

After their first couple of years in the league, there was much debate as to whether the Cowboys made the right decision drafting DeMarcus Ware one spot ahead of Shawne Merriman. With Wade Phillips as Defensive Coordinator in San Diego, Shawne succeded greatly in his first 2 years, including a 17 sack season which was shortened by a 4 game suspension after testing positive for steroids. Ware, on the other hand, saw only 19 sacks over his first 2 seasons, but that number has continued to grow into his 4th season, where he recorded 20 sacks over a full season.

Ware has continued to see his popularity and talent rise, whereas over the last 2 seasons, Merriman has been injured and caught on to the LA night life, where he continues to get himself into trouble. (Rumor has it he brings a tape of Lawrence Taylor breaking Theisman's leg around with him, and shows it to girls, screaming "Sex now, or THIS!" see Fig. 1.1)

Then news comes out today of his exploits with one Ms. Tila Tequila :

I'd like to think the Cowboys made the right decision.

Beware of D-Ware.
