    Orlando Scandrick Talks Cowboys’ Disappointing Season on FOX Sports

    For better or worse, the Cowboys don't even need to play football to be all over national TV. I guess it's just part of being the one and only . For the second consecutive week, Fox Sports had a ' player on set for Fox's “Undisputed.”

    Just a week ago, Brice Butler made waves with some controversial comments that failed to make him look like a “great teammate.”

    This time, Fox's guest was Cowboys' Cornerback Orlando Scandrick. Unlike Butler, I really think we should give Scandrick credit for being a very good teammate, and acting like one on his TV appearance.

    Throughout the segment, it feels as if Orlando is being tricked into saying something against his teammates. Skip Bayless and start bashing on 's performance and the fact that he should be replaced.

    Of course, this is the kind of stuff fans in are thinking about. Heck, I really wouldn't even mind if Dez isn't wearing a star next season. However, I really disliked Butler's comments when asked if he would've done a better job if given the same opportunities as Dez.

    Scandrick's responses were awesome though. When asked if he would defend Dez, he didn't even hesitate.

    “I don't think he's lost any confidence. He's one of the most confident players I've ever been around. I think it can all be fixed. I think he just needs to get back to work and get back to the basics.” – Orlando Scandrick on Dez Bryant.

    Scandrick also answered questions about what went wrong with the Cowboys this season by pointing out the fact they lost one of their best players because of a , and some injuries. But he also said what's been in our minds for a long time. When asked what was the biggest reason they struggled, he said some painful, yet truthful words: “We played some bad football against some very good teams.”

    Later, he was asked about how 's absence affected the , he insisted they didn't step up. At the end of the day, the NFL is a league in which you can't be that dependent on a single player.

    Sean Lee is an awesome player, but I think we'd all like to see this defense be a little less dependent on him.

    Scandrick even had to defend .

    Dak was highly criticized after a sophomore season in which he struggled, alongside the entire team. But in the words of Orlando, we should “give him time.” Dak had a lot on his plate, but he made a lot of progress for the Cowboys.

    Orlando Scandrick's time in Dallas may be coming to an end, especially with young guys like and taking over. He's signed through 2019, so who knows; maybe we see him wearing for a bit longer.

    “It's always a possibility.” – Orlando Scandrick on potentially not returning to Dallas next season.

    Even still, it's nice to see him support his football team and his friends on a show which featured a non-starting Cowboys' taking shots against his team. Orlando Scandrick deserves an applause.
