Dez Bryant’s Rant Has Nothing to do with Dallas Cowboys’ Loss
There are a number of things you can point to and say that’s the reason why the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Detroit Lions; Dez Bryant’s outburst on the sideline was not one of them. No matter what you think about Bryant’s rant, it had nothing to do with the outcome of the game, yet that’s all anyone wants to talk about.
Give me a break.
The Cowboys have much bigger worries than a wide receiver that cares too much about winning. Spare me the thought that Bryant disrespected his teammates or coaches because they all said just the opposite after the game. Bryant plays with a passion that is rarely matched and sometimes that spills over in the heat of the moment, big flipping deal. If the Cowboys win the game yesterday, no one is talking about the outburst from Bryant and everyone is talking about the passion that Dez plays with.
Instead the Cowboys lost and everyone wants to find excuses and reasons why. Bryant isn’t at the top of the list and perhaps if more Dallas Cowboys players had that kind of passion and will to win they wouldn’t consistently lose these types of games. Bryant’s will to win needs to be matched by more of his teammates. Perhaps Bryant didn’t need to explode the way he did but if he backs off, then he isn’t being the player he needs to be. Dez is sick of losing, are there any fans who disagree with him?
Bryant is the best offensive player the Cowboys have and throwing in his direction just six times is unacceptable, and it’s not the first time this season that Dallas’ offense has forgotten about him. Dez Bryant is one of the most dominant players in the NFL and the Cowboys still do not use him enough, so the frustration is understandable.
Dez Bryant plays with passion and it can’t be turned on and off when it suits the Cowboys. When the Cowboys win, fans can’t talk about how much they love his passion for the game and then turn around the next week and complain about that same passion in a loss.
Feel free to disagree with me but give me a player who plays with passion over a player who accepts losing any day of the week.
