Ware should have had it all the way.
Wow....did you even watch Harrison play this year? They wouldn't have been anything NEAR the defense they were without him and he absolutely was the best defensive player on the Steelers this year. What did Ware do other than get a lot of sacks? Just look at their stats side by side and just see how much better across the board he was:
Ware: 84 tackles, 20 sacks, 6 FF, 2 PD
Harrison: 101 tackles, 16 sacks, 7 FF, 1 INT, 3 PD, 1 Safety
Now on top of that, you look at the fact that Harrison did this in 15 games where Ware had 16 and it's even more impressive. If you add in what his averages were to his final stats he would have had 107 tackles and 17 sacks which would give him just 3 sacks less but 23 more tackles. No one on the Steelers team even comes close to having the kind of impact Harrison had and no one in the NFL did either.
