A good cry later, Bryant attributed his over emotional state to his desire to winning, something that former Dallas Cowboys defensive back Deion Sanders agrees with, suggesting Bryant is the only player on the roster who has any passion:
“He is the only guy on that team that plays with that kind of passion. The only guy,” Sanders said on NFL Network’s “NFL GameDay Highlights. ” … At certain times he shows immaturity. (However), you can’t want the passion, mental toughness and aggressiveness on the field but not want it off the field.
I’m not sure I’d go that far, but the point is understood. I don’t think anybody has ever questioned Dez’s desire when he’s on the field as the guy plays with an enermous motor.
Still, outbursts like Sunday simply can’t happen.
