While We're Cleaning House: Greg Ellis, Pack Your Bags
He's unhappy? Yep, must be the off-season.
Among the Dallas Cowboys' many problems, let's address this one this afternoon:
Terrell Owens and Greg Ellis are captains. Let that sink in a second while I remind you that any team that annoints me-first guys as locker-room leaders is fatally flawed.
We all know T.O.'s agenda. Now, Ellis is at it again.
The other day on 105.3 The Fan he was commencing his annual off-season bitch-fest. In recent years he's complained about his contract, the team's commitment, his position, his role and his everything other than the fact that he's been around forever and never won diddly-poo.
Now? Back to the part about his role.
Seems poor-poor-pitiful Greg doesn't like that Anthony Spencer gets more snaps. Thinks he's mis-used, under-utilized and general prevented from being an All-Pro by the Cowboys' meanie coaching staff.
"Do I think that creates a distraction for guys when they feel like certain players aren't used correctly?" Ellis told Ben 'n Skin. "Yes, I think it does. I think it affects our team. I don't have to throw T.O.'s name into it, because he's a man who can speak for himself. But just my own personal experiences from last year, I'd say 'yes'."
Boo and hoo. Here's a tip: 1. Shut up. 2. Play better. If you need counseling, call the Rangers' Michael Young.
I know Spencer's been shaky on the field and off, but would you guys be sad to see Ellis go?
Betcha a nickel by the time training camp rolls around Ellis somehow finds enough peace and contentment to miraculously drag his 34-year-old body out there to back up Specner with another mediocre 6-sack season.
