Dallas Cowboys defensive end Jason Hatcher delivered some unintentional controversy a few weeks ago when he was asked to name at least one leader on the roster.
"Dude. . ." answered Hatcher before admitting that no one came to mind.
That radio interview on Dallas' "Ben & Skin Show" has served as the basis for a larger discussion regarding who's running the show at Valley Ranch. I believe players such as Jason Witten, Tony Romo and Jay Ratliff exhibit leadership qualities, but it seems Hatcher is looking for something more. The name he kept dropping, Ray Lewis, has been the heart and soul of the Baltimore Ravens' defense for years.

Now comes word that as the team struggles to create cap space, the team has handed the franchise tag to LB Anthony Spencer. His 2012 salary will account for $8.8 million of said cap space.
Keith Brooking has been viewed as one of the vocal leaders in the Cowboys locker room since signing a three-year deal with the team in 2006.
So to no surprise, Brooking didn't agree with Jason Hatcher's comments about the Cowboys not having any leaders.
"It's easy when you're 8-8 and things don't go your way to say we don't have leaders," Brooking...

When Hines Ward was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers this week everyone mentioned his strengths, first on the list is his ability to block downfield. I think that his ability to block downfield along with his sure hands makes him a perfect fit to play with Tim Tebow in Denver. Tim Tebow has his weaknesses
