Jason Garrett had a chat with Greg Hardy about dumb comments

AP

As it turns out, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett doesn’t think Greg Hardy’s “jokes” are funny either.

Garrett said he had a quick conversation with his defensive end, after his first press conference as a member of the Cowboys included unfortunate gun references, and tasteless cracks about the attractiveness of the wives and girlfriends of quarterbacks.

That’s not how we want to operate as an organization, players and coaches in our organization understand that,” Garrett said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We want to distinguish ourselves with our play, not with what we say. We define ourselves by what we do, not by what we say. Greg understands that now and that’s how we’re going forward.”

And to be honest, Garrett’s words are probably worth mentioning to his boss, who had some equally unrefined commentary when asked about Hardy’s comments about Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen.

“When I saw him marry [Bundchen], Tom went up in my eyes 100 percent,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “She’s very very attractive and it shows what an outstanding individual Tom is.”

Yes, because acquiring the company of attractive women is clearly a sign of character, at least among those who view women as objects.

But as it pertains to Hardy, Garrett said he thought his message was received.

“Yeah, he’s very receptive, very respectful, appreciated my comments,” Garrett said. “Hopefully he’ll handle it the right way going forward.”

Based on past actions, Hardy probably understands that as well as teammate Joseph Randle understood directions to not leap across goal lines with the ball exposed, and Garrett’s likely to have to repeat this conversation as well.

  1. Keep up the good work coach Garrett, your in charge of America’s best daycare for adult boys.

  2. “Yeah, he’s very receptive, very respectful, appreciated my comments,” Garrett said. “Hopefully he’ll handle it the right way going forward.”

    Yeah, good luck with that. You can’t fix stupid.

  3. “Yes, because acquiring the company of attractive women is clearly a sign of character, at least among those who view women as objects.”

    How is that? Object’s don’t give you character? The people in your life, the people you love, life experiences. These give you character. You are twisting words.

  4. Hardy is just very immature, he’s still has the mentality of a 17 year old. I believe he beats women and I believe he abandoned his Bentley in the middle of downtown Dallas because he was drunk. Hopefully coach Garrett can get him to become a big boy.

  5. Hey Coach, if Greg Hardy’s defined by what he does and not what he says then what was the need to have a talk with him in the first place? 😛

  6. Not surprised. Jerry Jones once was very insistent to my then girlfriends sister on his advances towards her…even though he was old enough to be her great grandfather…dude definitely has what we call up north creepy old man tendencies

  7. Um…it is an accomplishment to acquire attractive women but I don’t know about a sign of high character. But it is an a accomplishment. I’m sure you wouldn’t know.

    Also Hardy is an idiot.

  8. Hardy is too stupid to display remorse for what he did to his victim and nobody should expect him to act like anything other than total moron he is in this case. Congratulations to the Panthers for not having to be associated with that POS anymore. Tom Brady is out for blood and the Cowboys are looking at 2-3 when he’s done with them.

    Ever heard of sarcasm?

  10. Hardy is dumber than a box of rocks, whatever Garrett did say to him, passed thru his ears at the speed of light. Also, how can Garrett (with a straight face) profess the high standards of the cowboy’s organization when he has a roster full of criminals????? Too damn funny.

  11. The point is, men don’t “acquire” an attractive, intelligent, rich beyond all comprehension wife.

    She, in fact, acquires you.

  12. Let me start by saying I hate Hardy!!! He should be out of the NFL. But all this over what he said? Is just media stirring up problems. All NFL players say stupid stuff all the time that even looks worse when the media twists it to make it sound worse. Hardy is an idiot, but not because of this last interview.

  13. “…whatever Garrett did say to him, passed thru his ears at the speed of light. ”

    While you are (deservedly) bashing his intellect, let’s agree that sound does not move at the speed of light.

  14. Who cares….lets see what you got Sunday…I’m saying Hardy is a nonfactor as the Pats smash the boys

    A boys fan with clear glasses on

  15. Unless they were to suspend him for a game for conduct detrimental to the team and it costs him money anything Garrett said is meaningless.

  16. How is that? Object’s don’t give you character? The people in your life, the people you love, life experiences. These give you character. You are twisting words.

    Just because you are a character doesn’t mean you have character.

  17. Let’s pay Jeopardy.

    Answer: “We want to distinguish ourselves with our play, not with what we say. We define ourselves by what we do, not by what we say.”

    Question: What is a concept that Rex Ryan will never, ever comprehend?

  18. Well we all know that Greg Hardy and Jerry Jones are idiots. That’s a given. The beatdown is coming on Sunday. I just wish Jerry could be on the field for a few plays…

  19. The comments were not dumb, they were ignorant. There’s a big difference.

    A bigger problem is Jerry Jones singing Hardy, pretending he didn’t do what he was charged with doing, yukking it up about the “guns blazes” phrase, and doubling down on the Giselle comments with his own foolish statement about his opinion about Brady improving when he found out he was dating her.

  20. Yep. Sunday’s contest is worth the wait. I doubt the ‘Boys will say much of anything stupid after that game – they’ll be too busy occupied with pain and studying the script for the “damn, we lost” press conference.

    Thanks for keeping it all entertaining, Cowboys.

  21. You are kidding yourself if you don’t see Jones worrying that the Patriots are the second highest valued franchise in the NFL and have continually made up ground on the Cowboys on and off the field. Why did Jones support Goodell when he clearly doesn’t care about “the integrity of the game”? He is looking to protect his perceived perch at the top of the NFL.

  22. The coach has it right to say they want to be know by how they play not what they say. Jerry Jones will continue to undermine this path to winning with his constant jabbering and falsehoods. He has placed enormous pressure on Romo for years without considering the effects of failure over the long term. Tony is tough but reckless, Jerry is just reckless.

  23. Garrett went on to say, “Hey, this week we activated a couple criminals, so we gotta keep ’em in our crosshairs, you know, make sure the house don’t catch fire. Our team goals are still out there – if we wanna be Prom King and get the Prom Queen, we gotta go grab her.”

  24. If people have such big problems with the NFL and how they handle their players, then stop watching, buying and supporting. Hardy is smart enough to make millions doing something he enjoys. The money comes from all of us, including the one’s complaining about Hardy.

  25. Yes, because acquiring the company of attractive women is clearly a sign of character, at least among those who view women as objects.

    HAHA, – How about them COWBOYS!!!

    From the top on down, Jerry & Hardy: Dumb & Dumber!!

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    If you want to get technical, when the sound waves are converted into information in Hardy’s brain it becomes electromagnetic energy. This means that it does, in fact, travel at the speed of light.

  27. Well at least Garrett made an attempt. Unlike the moron Jones who only added fuel to the fire. I guess it just shows that being stupid and being rich very often come together.

  28. If Garrett has to have a talk with Hardy when he says something stupid, how does he have time to coach?
