Jason Kelce: It’s a ‘joke’ that Greg Hardy is allowed to play
Like many others, the Eagles are not big fans of Greg Hardy. And after Philadelphia defeated the Dallas Cowboys on an overtime touchdown Sunday night, several players were not shy about expressing their feelings.
Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson called out Hardy for being a quitter. Center Jason Kelce was even more animated.
“There are three (types) of people I have zero respect for in this world,” Kelce said, per Marcus Hayes of the Philadelphia Daily News. “It’s people who hit women, people who molest children, and rapists. I’m glad he didn’t have a good day and …
“I don’t know. I think it’s a joke a guy like that is able to play this quickly.”
Hardy had three tackles, a sack and a quarterback hit, but he didn’t really make any game-changing plays. It’s clear the Eagles’ offensive line felt extra motivated going up against him, and it may have paid off.
The Cowboys have been heavily criticized for signing Hardy, and things got worse when a lengthy report uncovered some photos of the injuries his ex-girlfriend suffered during a domestic violence incident. It’s only human nature to want to see Hardy fail after reading some of the details, and you can’t blame some of the Eagles players for feeling that way.
