Drew Pearson weighs in on Dez Bryant


It seems like everyone is weighing in on the Dallas Cowboys loss to the Detroit Lions. Former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin said he’d talk to Bryant about it. Drew Pearson said Bryant could channel it better and find a better time to display and express his frustration.

With the game on the line and scrambling to figure out what to do isn’t the time.

“There’s no question you got to channel it differently especially in that part of the football game when everybody is scrambling around trying to figure things out and do what’s best to win the football game,” said Pearson, via ESPN Dallas. “At that point, whether its frustration or begging for the football, which we’ve all done in critical situations in games on the sidelines. It just wasn’t the right time.”

“I don’t know if he pushed Dooley away, but he put his hands on him,” Pearson said. “You don’t show anybody up. It was perceived he was showing up Romo and Garrett at that time. You can’t do it at the wrong time. That’s why we’re talking about that now instead of losing a tough football game as opposed to a defense that gave up 623 yards and 24 points in the fourth quarter. If we’re talking about that and not what really cost us to lose that football game, to me it appears to be a distraction and that’s what Michael is talking about you got to challenge it at the right time.”
