I was not down for the Cowboys doing the HBO Hard Knocks show back in the spring. I just thought it would be a circus and an unneeded sideshow. I saw the first episode and I thought the show was tastefully done.
I was happy to see head coach Wade Phillips get some positive air time. He is a good guy and he really is a good football coach.
The part they showed about Jason Witten being a family guy is true. His wife Michelle is a good person and they are a really loving family.
They got it right on rookie Martellus Bennett. He’s a guy you have to stay on. Sometimes I got the feeling he didn’t want to be out at practice or have to put in work after practice.
He has talent, but I wonder when the light will go on for him. Talent is not enough in the NFL. If he can mix hard work, drive and passion with his talent, he will become a Pro Bowl player.
