Greg Hardy was obviously a big topic of discussion heading into this week's Eagles versus Cowboys game. New details and photos detailing Hardy's domestic assault incident were revealed to the public on Friday. Despite the report, the Cowboys stood by their continued support of Hardy and allowed him to play against the Eagles on Sunday night. Hardy finished the game with one sack, but the defensive end ended up on the losing side yet again. Dallas is now 0-4 in games Hardy has played this season. Maybe Hardy isn't as good as some believe after all. At least, that's what Lane Johnson seemed to suggest after the game.

In his first NFL career start at left tackle, Johnson did a pretty good job of dealing with Hardy.
But Johnson wasn't the only player to rip Hardy. Eagles starting center Jason Kelce also weighed in:
"I’m glad he didn’t have a good day. It's a joke a guy like that is able to play this quickly." @Jkelce #Eagles #Cowboys #Hardy— Marcus Hayes (@inkstainedretch) November 9, 2015
"3 people I have zero respect for in this world. People who hit women; who molest children; rapists." @Jkelce #Eagles #Hardy #Cowboys— Marcus Hayes (@inkstainedretch) November 9, 2015
The Cowboys fell to 2-6 on Sunday night by losing to the Eagles in overtime. Their season is now effectively over since no NFL team has ever made the playoffs after starting with such a poor record.
