Just Saying: Dez Bryant Has Every Right To Get Mad

Dez Bryant shouldn’t keep it in.
Great players lead. They say something. Drew Pearson did. Michael Irvin? You think?
And yet the nation thinks Bryant should calm down. To be reserved. To wait.
No. You don’t wait for a win. You don’t wait for the ball. Winners lead. Winners take.

Dez Bryant shouldn’t keep it in. Throwing temper tantrums are necessary. The best do it.

Great players lead. They say something. Drew Pearson did. Michael Irvin? You think?

And yet the nation thinks Bryant should calm down. To be reserved. To wait.

No. You don’t wait for a win. You don’t wait for the ball. Winners lead. Winners take.

Taking a stroll across the sidelines, outside of Rob Marinelli, nobody on this team is getting mad. Sure, there’s talk about getting mad. There’s people setting up appointments to get mad. And maybe, some actually are mad but only for a few moments. Of course, there’s the “moral victory” talk.

Get the heck out of here.

Somebody on this team needs to infuse some passion. Because the Dallas Cowboys are flat. Pure flat — like the Midwest. Dropping to 4-4 against a Detroit Lions team pretty much pinned down, is embarrassing.

It was a night that Dez Bryant’s miracle catch would be overshadowed by a broken defense and guy named Calvin Johnson.

It could have easily been a Dez Bryant night. But it wasn’t. A stale offense was all that showed up. Who wouldn’t be angry? Who wouldn’t want to show case their talents? Especially with Bryant’s skill set.

Why on earth wouldn’t you exploit the defense with Bryant? Is there some secret ingredient in hiding your weapons until the 5th quarter we don’t know about?

Because it doesn’t work. You use your weapons. You plan around your best players. And Dez Bryant is one of them.

Unfortunately, defenses aren’t the ones stopping the wide receiver. Leave it to your own team to limit the best players.

Just give him the damn ball. Enjoy his signature “X” and smile. Just saying.
