Jerry Jones Will Never Stop Covering For Greg Hardy

Before Greg Hardy finally made his return to the playing field — after missing more than a season’s worth of games for beating up his girlfriend and threatening to kill her and throwing her onto futon covered in automatic weapons — he said he hoped he would come back “guns blazing” and then also cat-called Tom Brady’s wife and Blake Bortles’ girlfriend via the circle of reporters around him.

Jerry Jones, when told of the comments, first said, “Oh, dear” and then covered for Hardy, saying that “guns blazing” is just an expression (which, no kidding, but a dumb expression to use at that time and that’s the point) and then pretty much cat-called Tom Brady’s wife, too, like the horny grandfather he is.

Yesterday, Greg Hardy throws a temper tantrum after Dwayne Harris ran back a kickoff for a score, clearly either ticking off or scaring the bejeezus out of everyone he encountered. And Jerry says?

“He’s, of course, one of the real leaders on this team and he earns it and he earns it with respect from all of his teammates and that’s the kind of thing that inspires a football team.”

It’s only been three weeks, so you can imagine how insanely hard this thing is going off the rails before everything is said and done. And Jones and the team are going to circle the wagons for him every single time. Hardy is a human wildfire, and the Cowboys ridiculously think they can control it. Nothing good has happened to the Cowboys since Jerry decided to go all-in on this season and take a chance on Hardy, and that’s probably deserved.
