    Finally, there has been push back from the Cowboys regarding defensive end Greg Hardy’s controversial comments about New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s wife.

    Coach Jason Garrett said the situation was addressed with Hardy immediately following his interview on Tuesday when he made the comments.

    “Well we just addressed it immediately,” Garrett said. “That’s not how we want to operate as an organization, players and coaches in our organization understand that. 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 (inaudible) going forward.”

    Hardy created a stir Tuesday when he met with the media for the first time since signing with the Cowboys last March. Among the more notable comments Hardy made centered on Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen.

    I don't either. The first time I heard someone question it, I thought I must have missed something.

    yeah, it was seen as him objectifying women and given he "is clearly an abuser", he should not be discussing women.

    It is silly but that is the new firestorm. Leonard Little killed a guy and less was said about him than Greg Hardy.

    If he wasn't a Cowboy we'd be all over this guy right now but we're so desperate for something positive on the football field we're blind to this dude's weirdness.

    Not saying I'm not glad he will be on the football field wearing a star I'm just saying with his previous issues it isn't surprising that there will be backlash when he says something a little off kilter.

    I don't get why this story starts with the word "Finally..."

    Non issue, for sure. A guy can't say another man's lady isn't beautiful? She's a supermodel, not a peace corps volunteer.

    I don't think it is a big deal but glad Garrett spoke to him about it. I guess I would rather see players talking about opposing players not their family or wife. Keep it somewhat classy.

    Everybody including Hardy himself knew much scrutiny there would be in his return this week. Given that he just lost an entire season of his NFL career to allegations of domestic violence, the smart play would have been keeping his comments constrained to the game against NE.

    He chose to diverge off that path and talk about the opposing QB's wife and her sister.

    If nothing else, I think we learned Hardy isn't the smartest tool in the shed.

    Naw if he wasn't a Cowboy I would not care, not comment and would be too busy worrying about my daily life and struggles.....but that's just me and my hustler mentality

    The big deal is the media using hyperbole to make a story out of nothing.

    I agree that I wouldn't care either way, either. But I can't help but feel that if was signed by the Eagles or Redskins some on here would fine some fault in his statements. It's all just a matter of perspective I guess.

    Like I said what's the big deal? He was clearly joking about Brady's wife and her sister. He said he hopes they're at the game. Maybe he's hoping that they see Hardy knock him around and rough him up abit. People as usual are just taking what a player says completely out of context.

    I have seen and heard much worse. Having said that, it's Greg Hardy. Anything he says will be turned if at all possible. It's good that Garrett has tried to get ahead of it.

    Really? The PC in the media is sickening.

    Garrett wants them to distinguish themselves with their play on the field....So when is that suppose to start happening?
