Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant threw an epic temper tantrum for all NFL viewers to see during Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. The tirade happened at the end of the 3rd quarter after QB Tony Romo threw an incomplete pass on the 3rd down.
The Cowboys ended up kicking a field goal to take a 13-7 lead, so it’s puzzling as to why Bryant felt the need to dress down both receiver coach Derek Dooley and Romo. He stood by his antics when asked about them afterward, reports ESPN.
“I’m the nicest person off the field,” Bryant said. “When I’m on the field, even when I look angry, it’s still all good passion. It’s all good passion. I feel like that’s what we need. I’m going to remain the same way.”
Owner Jerry Jones agrees with the fiery WR, saying, “It’s not a negative for our team. Matter of fact, when he started that as I saw timing-wise, we started playing better on our offense and the defense didn’t hear it. They were out on the field. It’s not an issue.”
The Cowboys ended up losing 31-30, bringing them to a 4-4 record for the season.
