DeMarcus Ware never said anything to Tony Romo about the bobbled snap in Seattle.
“I didn’t say anything. I never did at all,” Ware said Thursday at Valley Ranch.
The Cowboys’ outside linebacker was in his second year when the Cowboys lost the NFC wild-card playoff game at Seattle.
“To this day, I saw the play and forgot about it,” he said. “Some days, you’ve got to know what a player is feeling and don’t bring it up, let that fuel you for the next season.”
Ware is one of nine Cowboys players left from that game, including Romo and the long snapper, LP Ladouceur, tight end Jason Witten, defensive linemen Marcus Spears, Kenyon Coleman, Jay Ratliff and Jason Hatcher, and receiver Miles Austin. Hatcher and Austin were rookies.
“I think when you think about our team, especially with all of our guys coming together, you grow each year from adversity, you build character from that,” Ware said. “It’s where we are right now. We’re the veterans of the team, and all of those adverse times when we’re younger mold us to where we are now.”
Ware didn’t say anything then. He’s not going to say anything now.
“No, I’m not going to do that,” he said. “We don’t want anything negative going into this game. It’s old.”
