Not long after Dez Bryant was praised by us and nearly everyone else for his amazing touchdown catch on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, he was flipping out on everyone on the Dallas Cowboys sidelines.
Bryant had a major meltdown and began yelling at Tony Romo and many of the Cowboys coaches late in the third quarter. Bryant only had 2 catches for 22 yards including the touchdown to that point, so it’s possible he was upset that he wasn’t being targeted. However, Bryant did give Romo a hug after the Cowboys scored on a 60-yard touchdown to make it 20-10 in the fourth quarter, so maybe all was resolved in his mind.
Between his freak ability and polar behavior, he reminds us a lot of former Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens. Bryant later scored on a 50-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter to put Dallas up 27-17, so that probably made him feel a lot better.
Below is Bryant’s meltdown in GIF form, which really makes him look like a ranting lunatic:
Later in the game, Bryant was at it again. He was furious that the team blew a 30-24 lead in the final minute and was confronted by teammate Jason Witten:
