Brian Mitchell sounds off on Dez Bryant
The last few weeks have been tough for Redskins fans, bad losses compounded by a messy front office and coaching situation. But at least on the field, the team has stayed together. In Dallas, that is no longer the case.
Sunday, with his team in the middle of an epic collapse, volatile Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant walked off the field before the game was over. The message was clear: Bryant was done with his teammates, especially after quarterback Tony Romo threw a game-ending interception. Cameras caught Bryant leave the field and head for the Cowboys locker room, and Monday, Dallas head coach Jason Garrett responded:
I understand why to a certain extent, they’re kneeling the ball, the game essentially is over, he’s an emotional guy, we’re all very emotional about what we do. But he needs to stay out on the field and I’ll address that with him today. And just explain why it’s important to do that and he’ll understand.
Garrett's comments came on a Dallas radio station, and he added that Bryant is a good team player who will understand his mistake.
Considering Bryant's early escape coincided with an excruciating Cowboys loss, most Redskins fans would like to see Dez make another early exit next weekend.
