Bernadeau says he needs to play better, not worried about being replaced

Guard Mackenzy Bernadeau has played so poorly that the Cowboys are considering replacing him with backup Derrick Dockery.

Bernadeau, who got a four-year, $11 million deal in the offseason to come over from Carolina, said worried about getter better to help the team, rather than feeling the pressure of getting replaced.

“I feel like I’ve got to compete and do what I’ve got to do,” Bernadeau said. “If I do what I’ve got to do, there’s nothing else to worry about. Unfortunately, I’ve been doing my job, just not to the best of my ability. So I’ve got to get on my track to be the best that I can be and help my team be better.”

Some of Bernadeau’s issues stem from hip and knee injuries in offseason that caused him to miss minicamps and the majority of training camp. His technique and fundamentals have suffered.

But he said he won’t use the injuries as an excuse. He just needs to play better as does the rest of the offensive line.

“We take pride in protecting the quarterback and running the ball,” Bernadeau said. “We have to do our job.”

Another on the long list of poor talent evaluations by this crew led by Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett. Just another reason by the Cowboys will be a 6-10 or 7-9 team. Thanks Jerry and Thanks Jason. Great job.
