According to ESPN’s Mike & Mike radio show, Mike Greenberg said that the Dallas Cowboys defense has recorded a sack 12% of the time with Greg Hardy on the field. He also said that they haven’t recorded a sack 5% of the time without him on the field.

“He’s a good player and makes the Cowboys better,” Cris Carter said on the show. “I have a problem with the blatant disregard of the coach on the sideline and the follow up interview after the game.”

If you’re not aware, following the game against the New York Giants, reporters went to Hardy for a comment either about the situation with the coach, or his altercation with star wide receiver Dez Bryant on the sideline.

However, he would say “no comment” each time that he was asked a question.

Head coach Jason Garrett said that Hardy was trying to encourage his teammates when he got into a confrontation with special teams coach Rich Bisaccia. However, when he went on 105.3 The Fan yesterday, he said otherwise.

“That was just a situation that oftentimes happens on a sideline where guys are trying to encourage and inspire other guys on their team,” Garrett told the station. “He was fired up and wanted to make sure that the special-teams unit was going to get the job done. Sometimes those things happen. It wasn’t exactly the right time and place as we’re getting ready to go out on the field. We got that conveyed and communicated, and we all moved on.”

Hardy began the season with a four-game suspension that came from a domestic violence incident. Originally, he was going to receive a 10-game suspension, before it was downgraded.

The Cowboys presently have 13 sacks on the season. Jack Crawford and Hardy presently lead the team with three sacks each. Tyrone Crawford and Anthony Hitchens have two each, while Sean Lee, Ronaldo McClain, and Demarcus Lawrence have a sack each.
