Cowboys’ Stephen Jones calls Dez Bryant leaving the field a bad decision

Dec 15, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) speaks with head coach Jason Garrett before the game against the Green Bay Packers at AT

The Dallas Cowboys found a way to lose to the Green Bay Packers after taking a 23 lead at the half and still leading 36-24 at one point in the fourth quarter. Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant left the field early and explained why.

“I was wrong,” Bryant said, via Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com. “It didn’t have anything to do with my teammates. I just, . . . I couldn’t watch Green Bay kneel the ball down on the field after a tough loss like that.

“I was very emotional. I cried when I got into the locker room. I didn’t want to show that stuff on the sideline.”

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones was asked about Bryant’s actions during his weekly Monday appearance on KRLD-FM 105.3.

“Obviously he was frustrated as a lot of us were when that last interception came,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. ”Obviously it wasn’t a good decision on his part. He readily admits that and let the heat of the moment catch up to him. Dez is a fierce competitor. When we threw that last pick it was probably pretty much determined that they could kneel it out. But it wasn’t a good decision on his part. I think he was the first to admit it.”

    That’s it? A bad decision?

    On any other competent team in the known universe, Bryant would be benched or fined for his selfishness, or both.

    But the most omnipotent powers running this clown show that is Dallas Cowboys football choose to call Bryant’s petulance ” a bad decision.”

    This is the problem, folks. Absolutely no discipline anywhere on this team!
