Dez Bryant on sideline yelling: ‘I don’t give a f— who films it’
Dez Bryant was his typical animated self on Thursday night as the Dallas Cowboys put a beating on the Chicago Bears. At one point early in the fourth quarter, he was seen screaming at his teammates on the sideline.
Had Dan Bailey not just kicked a field goal to give the Cowboys a 38-13 lead with 12:35 remanning in the game, you might think Bryant was furious. He wasn’t.
Bryant was simply urging his teammates not to give up in the fourth quarter, and he doesn’t care how it might have looked on TV.
“[Expletive] no, I do not care,” he told reporters, via Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News. “Because I know I’m not doing anything wrong. They don’t know what’s going on. I can’t care less. They ain’t on no sidelines. Nobody’s on the sidelines with us.
“The only thing they’re waiting for us to do is take an L so they can talk a bunch of [expletive] about us. ‘Oh, the same old Cowboys in December.’ C’mon, man. Ain’t none of that. We’re going to take advantage of what we need to take advantage of.”
“I don’t give a [expletive] who films it,” Bryant added. “That’s the truth. That’s the truth. That’s how I feel. As long as we get the W, that’s the only thing that matters. Put that [expletive] down. … Put my whole cuss words in there. I meant that. We’re trying to do something big here. That’s the only thing that matters.”
He’s right. Whether the fans or media approve of Bryant’s behavior means nothing as long he is on the same page with his teammates.
As some have noted, Tom Brady going F-bomb crazy during a loss to the Packers was seen as a display of passion. It’s the same thing when Bryant does it.
