Less talk and more work seems to be the theme of this year’s Dallas Cowboys squad.
Nose tackle Jay Ratliff didn’t talk to any reporters at Cowboys OTAs or minicamp, and said in a radio interview he was hoping for less talk, more action this year.
“We’re not going to sit here and talk about what we’re going to do this year or all the expectations everyone else has for us, I think the attitude for us this year needs to be we’re going to be quiet. To put it bluntly, we’re going to shut up, not say a thing and do our jobs.”
Ratliff’s opinion of this year’s defense
“No one’s sitting there waiting for the ball to come to make a tackle. They’re going for the ball. It’s a really aggressive defense. Everybody seems to have a great understanding of it. Everyone’s on the same page. We’re expecting great things from ourselves.”
Ratliff also added this
“Honestly, we don’t have room to talk,” he said. “The Giants are the Super Bowl champions. They’ve won two Super Bowls in the last five years. We just need to be quiet and do our jobs. Nothing else.”
I don’t know about you but this is the kind of work ethic and leadership the Cowboys are in dire need of. Is it going to turn around a 6-10 team that didn’t make the playoffs last year to a Superbowl contender only time will tell.
