Dez Bryant Talks Sideline Blowup and Calvin Johnson
By: Jeff Riger
Sunday’s Lions-Cowboys game was exciting. Not only was there a dramatic, improbable comeback by Detroit to win the game 31-30, but there was also one of the best receivers in the NFL conducting a sideshow on the Cowboys sidelines.
Dallas receiver Dez Bryant was seen yelling on the Dallas sidelines multiple times during the game on Sunday at multiple people. From Tony Romo to Jason Witten, Brant seemed to be getting in the face of everybody and frankly it was pretty amusing.
“The discussion we had basically not only with him (Romo) but everybody else, just in critical situations, in the game, how like man, our defense, they stopping them, we have to put up points and all that kind of stuff” Bryant said about his discussions with his team mates.
Bryant was passionate about being passionate and that his words Sunday should never be perceived as negative.
“My passion is always positive, it’s always positive, it’s going to remain the same way. I’m not saying anything wrong, I’m not saying anything bad, it’s all positive, that’s just what it is. I’m the nicest person off the field, when I’m on the field, even when I look angry, it’s still all good passion” Bryant said.”
So what about the fans that might think Bryant is causing a distraction on the sidelines?
“That’s your problem, that’s all y’all’s problem” Bryant said
