Ware Feeling Good, Eyes "Real Bowl"

IRVING, Texas --DeMarcus Ware is honored to be representing the league and the Cowboys with a sixth consecutive Pro Bowl trip.

That said, he wants a trip to Indianapolis, too.

"It's about making the real bowl," Ware said with a smile.

To make the playoffs and have an opportunity at a title, the Cowboys must do a better job Sunday containing Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Three weeks ago at Cowboys Stadium, Manning threw 47 passes without a sack and tallied 400 yards with two touchdowns in a 37-34 Giants victory.

"He was getting the ball out quick. He's an elusive guy," Ware said. "You've got to sort of give him credit. He did really well with avoiding the rush. We've got to change some things up, get some more pressure on him if he's going to pass the ball that much."

Ware, who is a half-sack off the NFL lead with 18.0, did not practice Wednesday. Neither did fellow Pro Bowler Jay Ratliff. They have been dealing with a neck stinger and a rib injury, respectively, and monitoring their practice workload.

"I'll be out there tomorrow," Ware said. "I feel great. I was just taking a little time off, me and Jay, to sort of recoup and get ready for this game."
