Lane Johnson calls out Greg Hardy for being a quitter
As if losing to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday weren’t already bad enough, Greg Hardy had the defeat rubbed in his face in the form of some trash talk from a rival.
The Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys 33-27 in overtime, and Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson called out Hardy.
Lane Johnson on Greg Hardy: "I've faced better. … When things aren't going well he's a guy that shuts it down." #Eagles

Hardy did have three tackles including a sack and two quarterback hits, but it wasn’t enough as his team’s defense came up short and allowed Sam Bradford to throw a 41-yard touchdown pass in overtime that ended the game.
The Cowboys received a ton of criticism for signing Hardy, and matters became even more magnified on Friday after photos were released showing the alleged physical damage the defensive lineman inflicted on his former girlfriend. Hardy may have four sacks in four games since being cleared to play for Dallas, but the team is 0-4 in that span. A lot of people feel that is justice for the team signing him. Johnson was probably just happy to beat him and rub it in afterwards.
