The Dallas Cowboys lost in dramatic fashion, and is usual with the Cowboys, it wasn’t with out drama. Dez Bryant threw not one, but two sideline temper tantrums and was seen yelling and arguing with teammates. The second one was directed at Jason Witten, and DeMarcus Ware stepped into to restrain Bryant.
“We were talking about the game,” Bryant said, via the Dallas Morning News. “It was a critical situation that we were talking about. It was all playing football.”
“My passion is always positive. I’m not saying anything wrong. I’m not saying anything bad. It’s all positive. I’m expressive on the field and off. Even when I look angry, it’s all good passion. I feel that’s what I need. I love this game. In order to win you have to be passionate about this game. You have to let that dog come out and put it all on the line.
“I’m trying to win a ball game. That’s all it was. This is a team full of talent.”
Then Bryant was asked if he went too far, or was too passionate.
“You can’t,” Bryant said. “There’s no such thing as being too passionate. You have to have that to win games. I’m sorry. If anybody disagrees with that they have a serious problem.”
Fire and passion are good. There is a right way and wrong way to display it however.
