Sean Lee says Cowboys aren’t too ‘Hollywood’ and if you’re distracted it’s your own fault

The Dallas Cowboys locker room was often referred to as a “country club” and that was a reason for their poor performance. Now there are comments that the Cowboys failing to live up to expectations is because playing in Dallas is too “Hollywood.”

Cowboys defensive leader and linebacker Sean Lee responded to those criticisms on Friday on KRLD-FM.

“I think we have an unbelievable opportunity to focus on football here,” Lee said, via the Dallas Morning News. ”We have everything you could want to focus and become the best football player you can be. If you’re distracted or you have lost focus, it’s your own fault.”

The Cowboys take on the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, that means facing former teammate Jay Ratliff.

“Jay played unbelievably hard when he was here. He’s a great football player. He’s a guy who on Sunday you wanted to battle with, because he played extremely hard, and I’m wishing him the best. I hope he has a great career going forward and has a lot of success, so there’s no hard feelings when it comes to that.”

Lee was still avoiding a straight answer when asked about playing the Bears.

“I feel really good. It’s been tough. I’ve been lucky to have a bye week. I’ve been out for about four weeks, but I’ve only missed two games, and I’ve put a lot of hard work into trying to get back and try and miss as few games as possible … This was a game I was looking forward to getting back to and playing.”
