Unlike some of his more publicized teammates, safety Gerald Sensabaugh made it clear Monday that he would answer every question about the Cowboys' 0-2 predicament. Only a few Cowboys made themselves available to the media. Many hid outside the locker room and others simply grumbled when approached.
But not Sensabaugh, who didn't mince words.
-- On current team frustrations: "It’s real frustrating. … I think it’s too much hype around here, you know what I mean? The Super Bowl is here. Everybody’s talking about the Cowboys in the Super Bowl. We ain’t won a damn game yet. I don’t even want to hear nobody talking about the Super Bowl. Really, can we just talk about the next game? There’s too much hype.
"There’s a sense that you can just show up and win. That’s not the case. That never happens. I don’t care who you have on your team. You don’t just show up and win. You have to go out there and fight and battle. I’m tired of hearing about the damn Super Bowl. I don’t care where it’s at. I don’t know, that could be one thing. When people just expect you to be good."
-- On the need for leadership: "We’re grown men. What can this guy tell me to make me a better football player? How do you go about that? What do you tell a guy? It has to come within yourself, too. If you’re really and truly dedicated to getting the job done, you’ll get the job done. Put it that way. If you’re dedicated to getting the job done, you’ll get the job done at all costs – risking your body, playing through injuries, you’re going to get the job done if you’re dedicated to it."
-- On the need for a players only team meeting: "A meeting is not going to do nothing. You just have to make plays. That’s how I feel about it. Talking is nothing. You have to show what you can do out there on the field. We are grown men. What do you have to give grown men a speech? We’re grown."
-- On the talent on the roster: "You look at the roster and we look good on paper, we look like crap on the field."
