Dallas linebacker DeMarcus Ware says the difference between the Cowboys and the Super Bowl champion Giants is less about talent than it is about togetherness.
Asked on NBC Sports Talk to name what the Cowboys need to do to take the next step toward the Super Bowl, Ware brought up the Giants and said he noticed that the Cowboys’ NFC East rivals came together as a team when they needed to last season. Ware thinks the Cowboys could learn something from that.
“I really don’t like to talk about the Giants, but their team camaraderie, where they had the adversity right at the beginning, and then all of a sudden, it really kicked in,” Ware said. “The last maybe eight games, the blood sweat and tears really kicked in, the guys started feeling it and they had that swagger about themselves.”
Ware said that for the Cowboys to emulate the Giants, it’s going to need to come from the players, not the coaching staff.
“It’s not on the coaches at all, it’s all about the players,” Ware said. “It’s just being there for the man beside you.”
