Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant described his passion as "all positive" after his sidleine confrontations with Romo and Witten during Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Bryant offered no apologies, saying his intense passion is critical to giving the Cowboys the best chance to win. He said he isn't concerned if the sideline outbursts look bad to outsiders. And I agree.
Maybe some people would prefer he just sits on the bench and stews or stands on the sideline in silence. Then again, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning don't act that way when they think their team is in the process of blowing a game they should win. So what’s the big deal? I’ll leave you to speculate on that one..I’ll keep my opinion on that to myself. Whatever the reason, pictures and, highlights and instant reactions on what Dez did on the sidelines yesterday will dominate media and fan conversation over the next few days.One sideline scene the cameras COINCIDENTLY didn't catch came after one of the Bryant-screams-at-Romo sessions. The Cowboys took the field and scored on three plays, the big one a 60-yard touchdown to Terrance Williams. Bryant wasn't targeted once on the series.
And guess what he did…he went and gave Romo a hug. But you won’t hear much about that.
Dez has called it his “passion” not his “anger” that he was expressing on the sidelines. And I accept that explanation. Hell he is the only one I’ve seen show some passion on the offensive side of the ball. Even the coaches looked monotone at times when they should be ripping someone a new one. I’m speaking about the offensive group..I know our defense has passion (they may be lacking in other areas but passion is not one).
