Greg Hardy declares Panthers “a nameless, faceless opponent”

AP

Greg Hardy has seldom helped himself by talking this year.

But at least he didn’t make things worse when asked about his coming game against his former team.

Via Todd Archer of ESPN.com, Hardy wasn’t biting on questions about Thursday’s game against the Panthers, when asked after the Cowboys beat the Dolphins.

Just a nameless, faceless opponent,” Hardy said. “Next game. Got to stay focused.”

Asked if he had friends there, he replied: “Which team?”

Asked how he kept it that way, he replied: “Just stay in the game with my teammates. Got a great bunch of guys. And focus on the next game.”

The Panthers drafted Hardy in 2010, and eventually paid him $13.1 million as their franchise player in 2014. Of course, they only got one game for that money, after he was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list following his arrest on domestic violence charges.

He has 4.5 sacks in six games with the Cowboys, since coming off a four-game suspension.

While he might want to keep it low-key, he also has to know he’ll be the focal point of a Thanksgiving day game, and not fueling the fire now might be the smartest thing he’s done in months.

    Hardy: Worthless, talentless player right now.

  5. He might have a point. Name three guys on that team other than Cam Newton and Greg Olsen. Carolina’s good, but hardly stocked full of household names.

  6. Hardy is a giant distraction for that team. That’s the way Jones likes it though. Jerry – not all press is good press, contrary to your personal belief. Sacrificing your respect for a few sacks just doesn’t seem worth it to many.

    They beat a questionable Miami team today, but they have their hands full against Carolina… The Giants are the team to beat.

    They have little room for error.

    Priceless….

  8. I dont care what Hardy or any other cowboy says, I just cant wait to see them get trounced on Thursday so we can stop hearing about how they have shot to win the east. The boys arent catching the Giants.

  9. How nice it will be as families gather around the TV to all watch and learn about the man who got to skip going to jail in exchange for giving his female victim which he beat up a large sum of hush money.

    Greg Hardy is the new face of the NFL on Turkey Day, everyone will be talking about what he did off the field.

  10. Yes!!! PFT almost went the day without a Greg Hardy post yet bam, there it is. Thanks guys! I’m already looking forward to see what Monday’s Hardy post will be about.

    It’s “deflategate” all over again where there was the daily (or two or three) posts about that crap.

    I’ll say this about Hardy…the guy seems like a piece of garbage but the smear campaign by this site is beyond pathetic.

  11. “America’s team, LooL! What joke the Cowboys are!”

    LOL!

    I would bet ANY amount of money that the Cowboys have been a FAR more successful franchise than whichever irrelevant, crappy team YOU root for.

    It’s why you’re commenting here and whining about our America’s Team moniker.

    Most valuable sports franchise in the WORLD, so you can call them the World’s Team if you want.

    Bow down and kiss all 5 rings, jealous peasants.

  12. He’s not wrong….it’s irrelevant who cowboys play. They want to win and prepare to “win the game”. Whether a team is 9-0 or 0-9 you prepare to win the game.

  13. Isn’t that the same thing he called his ex-GF before he domestically brought violence upon her?

    Can’t we stop covering this POS?

  14. Every time you report on this turd, you’re condoning what he did to that woman.

    Why don’t you do with him what you do with the Redskins and just stop reporting on his name?

  15. I see your 5 rings, and raise you 6.

    Dear Greg,
    Please break Cam’s collarbone and beat his stupid ass with it.
    Signed,
    NFL fans of teams people have actually heard of

    Jonathan Stewart
    Ted Ginn Jr.
    Luke Kuechly
    Kurt Coleman
    Devin Funchess

    Best learn these names real well, you going to hear a lot of them over the next 8-10 weeks

  17. Dear Steelerssam,

    Thank you for the hate, especially considering this article has nothing to do with your team. I guess you have heard of the Panthers. Also appreciate how much class/respect you have for wishing injury on a player when your QB has been falling apart this year.

    Sincerely,
    Good luck making the playoffs

    —————

    By “household names” you must be referring to households that don’t watch football.

  19. Well..the panthers may be a nameless, faceless team as hardy says..but I suppose that is better than being the current face of domestic violence in the NFL.

  20. He finally said something that didn’t cause a headache and a facepalm.

    Maybe a light bulb went on when he noticed that the rest of the locker room began to grow tired of his act.

  21. If everybody hates this guy so much than why do people keep sticking a microphone in front of his face? We’re a fascinating society

    Here we go again with people saying that Carolina doesn’t have a lot of big-name players. They’re a well-balanced team and play great together. I can ask you the same question about Seattle’s team the past two years. Anyway, challenge accepted: Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis, and Josh Norman. Their defense is good.

  23. Carolina has 11 players currently on pace to make the pro-bowl this year… Just think if they were in a market that (as Steeler fan previously said) “that people have actually heard of”.

  24. If Mike Remmers can go 1-on-1 with JJ Watt for a whole game and make him a non-factor, I’m sure he can do the same to Greg Hardy.

    KEEP POUNDING!
