NFL Monday morning hangover: Reviewing Week 8

Another Sunday has come and gone, but before you head off to your job or class or grave  — hey, I dunno what your Monday has in store for you — make sure to review the three big stories that are now essential to your life.

Dez Bryant’s tiffs with teammates
Cameras caught Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant yelling at teammates Tony Romo and Jason Witten on the sideline, so expect to hear a bunch of chatter this week regarding Bryant’s personal character. A laundry list of topics will be covered: Is his brand of fiery, non-wavering Resolve the type of kick-in-the-pants that can help Dallas turn the Tide on their disappointing season? Is Bryant just a prima donna who will drive a wedge into the Dallas locker room like some sort of wedge-driving maniac, hellbent on driving wedges left and right into places that shouldn’t be wedged? Does he not understand that, while we do live in a world where Google and Twitter can transform from product names into verbs, he is not technically required to yell when asking his teammates if Shout can get the stains out of his jersey? Debates must be had!
