They way i was taught was that as a DE you forced everything inside and if you were unblocked you took a straight path to knocking the QB on his ass. Problem nowadays is they'll flag you if you hit them after they've handed the ball off.
Its funny because I was thinking this last night, and I'm not sure if it's the coaches fault or Ware's fault but you always force everything back inside. I played OLB my Jr year and CB my Senior year and you were ALWAYS taught to just take the outside guy and force it back inside to the front 7.
I don't care what kind of scheme they are running thats pretty basic stuff.
