Rod Marinelli: 4-3 defense will ‘aid’ DeMarcus Ware

On Thursday, Cowboys defensive line coach Rod Marinelli, who had been defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears the last three seasons, said he thinks the new 4-3 scheme will give DeMarcus Ware a chance to be even better, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

“I think it’ll aid him a little bit, because your takeoff is better,” Marinelli said. “Your keys are a little more consistent with what you’re doing. That’s my opinion. I see him, I mean he’s an elite rusher right now. I just think the more opportunity he has, doing the same things every day, every week, the repetition, which allows you to become even faster. The sky is the limit for him, I believe.”

The Cowboys struggled mightily to force turnovers last season, finishing with 16. Marinelli’s group in Chicago didn’t have a problem in that department, leading the league with 44.
