Spencer wins award

Cowboys outside linebacker Anthony Spencer has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week. He had five tackles, two sacks, two quarterback pressures and a forced fumble in the Cowboys' 24-0 victory over the Eagles.

DeMarcus Ware won the award two weeks ago after the Cowboys beat the Saints 24-17.

It's great to see Spencer stepping up late in the season. In September/October, he didn't seem to be doing much and I think that was one of the reasons why Ware's sacks weren't coming early. Greg Ellis's presence on the other side made a huge difference. Now, there's pressure coming on opposing QB's from all directions, and back-to-back shutouts are the result.

Way to go Spence! It's no coincidence that Your hard work and subsequent swift rise to prominence parallel the Boyz rise to post season glory. 3 sack masters on one team (Ware, Spencer, and Ratliff) is just too much for other teams to overcome. I've never seen(in 45 years) a playoff team or SB winner have 3 sack masters, 4 super WO's, 3 super backs, 4 top tier DB's, or 5 superstar O-lineman all on the same team at once. Does it scare other teams? You bet!! Use the fear to put playoff opponents on their heels and you on the balls of your feet.
