He earned it but Ware was more deserving

Ware is the Jordan of our defense. Spencer our Pippen.

Injured or not Ware was the top priority of opposing offenses, not Spencer.

I would agree. Ware was still seeing double teams even with one arm. Unreal really.

Good for Spencer and his family. He is going to get paid. Hopefully not by us though, as it always makes me nervous when a guy is pedestrian his whole career and then decides to give it his all when money is on the line. This looks like a classic case of "eating the carrot" once he gets a big contract. I'll take my chances with a young draft pick.

I swear Spencer could donate all of his career earnings to charity and this board would still hate him.

I'm not surprised he did well this year when it's a contract year/audition for other teams. He earned his bread this year until he gets his money and back to the way he was before.

Ware - despite numerous injuries throughout - was as good or better in every facet of the game than Spencer with the lone exception being MAYBE defending the read option ( Ware struggled but Spencer wasn't very good either )

Except its purely perception that he's been "pedestrian" and solely based on sacks while ignore pressure, run and pass defense. The only difference between this year and the last 2-3 is that 4 or so pressures turned into sacks which could have everything to do with having a split second longer due to better corners

How'd Ware even get brought up when he earned a Pro Bowl trip anyway?

Did he? I missed it apparently. Haven't really paid attention but thought he was overlooked. Maybe that was the all-pro list

That being said - how the frick did Eli make the Pro Bowl after his abysmal season - while solid the first few games he was absolutely terrible the second half. Nearly the mirror image of Romo
