By now, we all know that Greg Hardy is a walking piece of utter filth passing itself off as human. If we didn’t know that from the account of his abuse, then we know from the pictures. And yet, he still has defenders. Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson are not among them.
Speaking about Hardy, Kelce had this to say post-game:
“There are three people I have zero respect for in this world. It’s people who hit women, people who molest children, and rapists … I’m glad he didn’t have a good day. It’s a joke a guy like that is able to play this quickly.”
Lane Johnson, on the other hand, critiques Hardy’s effort:
“I’ve faced better. … When things aren’t going well he’s a guy that shuts it down.”
I don’t believe in fate or karma. But with the Panthers being 8-0 without Hardy, and the Cowboys being 0-4 with him, it’s almost like there’s some overwhelming force of good out there that can’t stop Jerry Jones from paying him but can stop him from winning.
Meanwhile, what did Hardy have to say?
Hardy, who was not available for interviews when reporters entered the Cowboys’ locker room Sunday night, clearly had no desire to share his thoughts in the wake of his team’s defeat. A team official retrieved Hardy’s white Ferrari and backed it up through the tunnel leading out of the stadium, all the way to the locker-room entrance, so that he would have as little exposure to the media as possible.
Long after the room had been closed to reporters, Hardy emerged, walked gingerly to the passenger seat and entered the vehicle, before being driven off into the North Texas night.
