After turning to Twitter to tell people he feels that the media is biased towards Aaron Rodgers, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s brother, Tad, is back at it again. This time Tad went after Cowboys legend Dez Bryant, a man who spends a lot of time tweeting since his retirement.
After Dallas again failed to make the NFC Championship for the first time since1996, Cowboys fans and the entire NFL world are searching for answers and trying to place blame on whoever they can.
We can now add Bryant to the list of many people who are questioning Prescott’s abilities and wondering if he can truly be the franchise quarterback Dallas needs. As is usually the case, many eyes fall to the quarterback when a team continually fails. That’s part of the challenge of leading a team.
Bryant said that wide receiver Amari Cooper wasn’t the problem. Instead, he thinks the quarterback needs to call up former Cowboys QB Tony Romo to learn about how to better read the defense. Bryant later replied to his first tweet, saying that “if you know football, you know I’m not bashing” Prescott. Tad didn’t seem to agree.
Dak Prescott’s brother starts a Twitter feud with Cowboys legend Dez Bryant after making suggestions for the QB
Despite the fact that Bryant stated his tweet was not a diss, Tad was furious. He called out the former Cowboy by saying it’s not like he and Romo won so many playoff games together, suggesting that his brother doesn’t need Bryant’s or Romo’s advice. Burn. The two went back and forth for a while. If you are bored and need something to do, I highly recommend going through the thread on Twitter.
Bryant snapped back by sending out a tweet saying, “I never said nothing bad about Dak… I’m on the internet analyzing like everybody else… you got Pearson talking about dak ain’t no 40min QB and other people ripping Dak.. why wouldn’t he call Romo for help?”
The Pro Bowler has a point. What is the harm in telling a guy to get some pointers? Then, to add fuel to the fire, Bryant shared screenshots of text messages he claims were from Tad (which have since been deleted from Bryant’s feed) asking the former Cowboy to leave him and his brother’s names off his social media feed. Tad claimed the messages were fake and not from his phone number.
Bryant still claims he did nothing wrong and was simply offering advice to Prescott. Regardless, it seems like what really needs to happen here is Dak Prescott and Tad Prescott sitting down and discussing what needs to and doesn’t need to be shared on social media. Tad’s Twitter rants aren’t helping the conversation around his brother at all.
While this nonsense is entertaining, you have to imagine that it’s a PR nightmare for Dak’s team.
