What separates the Cowboys from the NFL’s elite teams? One player on the roster thinks it’s leadership.
Dallas defensive end Jason Hatcher said in an interview with Deion Sanders on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM that he isn’t sure who the leader in the locker room is.
“Dude, I’ve got to be honest with you: That’s a good question,” Hatcher said, via the Star Telegram. “I really don’t know. It’s just another thing we really need. . . . We don’t have that. We’ve got the talent. We’ve got everything we need [except] a Ray Lewis. When Ray Lewis speaks, everybody listens to him. A guy like that, we really don’t got that. I think we definitely need somebody like that.”
Hatcher, who has spent his entire six-year career with the Cowboys, said he believes there’s a lot to like about the future of the franchise. Just as soon as someone steps up and starts leading the team.
“So once you have that, you’ll be good,” Hatcher said. “We’re still looking for it.”
