Dez Bryant gets a lot of criticism. Especially from local Cowboys homers who think picking a wide receiver in the first round is a bad choice. While their might be some truth to that statement, Dez Bryant is a top-tier wide receiver. It’s also true Dez Bryant has made some bad decisions in life, and in the NFL.
Today, Bryant and the Cowboys went into Detroit and looked poised to come out with a win. Instead, due to some late game heroics from Matthew Stafford, the Cowboys ended up losing, 31-30. Everyone knew Bryant was fired up about this game due to the “matchup” between himself and Calvin Johnson. What they didn’t expect was Bryant to get fired up at the Cowboys.
Bryant got himself together enough to catch a 50-yard touchdown pass later in the game. Bryant also exploded later in the game. When asked whether he was being too passionate, Bryant later said:
“You can’t,” Bryant said. “There’s no such thing as being too passionate. You have to have that to win games. I’m sorry. If anybody disagrees with that they have a serious problem.
Because CowboysFan and sycophant CowboysBroadcaster has likely never played a down of football ever, they won’t understand this. This happens all the time in the NFL. I am amazed when analysts talk about it as if it never happens. Troy Aikman, one of my least favorite broadcasters pretends like he never exploded on the sidelines. I’d like to see Aikman talk that out with Barry Switzer.
