The Dallas Cowboys young wide receiver, Dez Bryant, said it best himself earlier this week on Twitter:
“I see I have to be extra careful about what I say.”
Bryant tweeted this after he made several comments during an radio interview comparing himself to the Detroit Lions‘ wideout Calvin Johnson earlier this week. Although he later retracted those statements and clarified himself, the damage was already done. Johnson got the message loud and clear. And Megatron let his performance speak for him in Sunday’s last minute win over the Cowboys, 31-30.
Johnson had a record setting day with 14 receptions for 329 yards and a score. Dez finished the day with three catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns. Not a bad day for Bryant, but nothing like the dominating performance by Johnson. Ladies and gentleman, there is no comparison. Not right now anyway.
But Bryant words not only sparked Johnson, they also could have done damage to the Cowboys’ sidelines. Several times during the game, Bryant was spotted yelling at coaches and teammates. Specifically, quarterback Tony Romo, head coach Jason Garrett, and tight end Jason Witten.
