Roger Staubach says he wouldn’t want Greg Hardy on his team
Legendary Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach has been speaking out against Greg Hardy in several interviews, saying that he would not want the controversial lineman on his team.
Staubach told USA Today on Tuesday that while he still roots for the Cowboys, he does not root for Hardy.
“I’m still rooting for the Cowboys,” he said. “I’m not a Hardy fan.”
Staubach also felt the Hardy isn’t taking the necessary steps to deal with his issues, specifically citing his sideline scuffle with Cowboys coaches.
“I just feel that the reaction that he had on the field, losing his cool with the coach,” Staubach said. “I’m a big Jason Garrett fan, so maybe there’s more that I don’t know about. But what was seen there was not, as a player, you don’t do that. Therefore, it seems like his temper is not under control yet.”
On Wednesday, Staubach appeared on NFL Network’s NFLHQ, and he doubled down on his criticisms of Hardy.
“I don’t know him, and I haven’t dealt with him. As I far as how I feel about it, I wouldn’t particularly want someone on my team that had the issues that he has,” Staubach said when asked if he’d want Hardy on his team.
Staubach is one of the most respected former Cowboys, so this applies more pressure to the franchise with regards to their handling of Hardy. Staubach’s voice joins a rising chorus against Hardy, with other NFL players feeling he got off lightly.
