Dez Bryant walks off field with 1:21 left in game

Dez Bryant walks off

Dez Bryant, being the great team leader that he is, skipped out on his teammates and walked off the field with 1:21 left in the game during the Dallas Cowboys’ 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Bryant was justifiably upset after Tony Romo was intercepted for the second possession in a row, but he cleared off the field and went into the tunnel before the game officially ended.

Everyone on Dallas’ sidelines had to be upset with the team for blowing a 26-3 halftime lead and 36-24 lead with under eight minutes left, but only Dez walked off early. I’m not sure why he can’t stick around with the rest of his guys until the end.

Shortly after the game ended, Bryant sent a tweet to address his actions:

There really is no excuse for this from Bryant. You win as a team, you lose as a team. And if you’re a team player, you don’t walk off the field because you’re disgusted.

    This guy has no concept of team. Tasteless. The team lost-not Dez. Surprised that he didn’t have any fumbles. He needs to grow up.

  • Jay Brewer

    Maybe Dez needed a joint. Didnt see Pats owner holding press conference after their game.

  • RocDude

    He had to leave to beat traffic… and his mom.

  • Joseph Nimee

    Of course it had to do with your “teammates” or you wouldn’t have left Tony stranded after his pick. A real teammate would have gone to the QB and supported him. What a tasteless disgrace! Good thing you don’t play for the Chicago Bears.. you do that here in Chicago and the team might run you off!
