Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant made waves again with his sideline behavior. This time he left the field early after the Cowboys let a 23 point lead disappear and losing the game. Bryant explained it by saying he didn’t want to be caught crying on the sidelines.
“There’s no excuse for it,” Madden told Rich Gannon and Adam Schein on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via the Dallas Morning News. “Because he’s such a good player, we’re all going to make excuses for him. What he did was wrong.”
They asked Madden what he would’ve told Bryant and his response was simple, yet effective: “Get your butt back here.”
“There are some things that you let go, and then when things go poorly, you can’t pull them back,” Madden said. “Dez Bryant has been in and out of the doghouse and I don’t know if they ever got him straight. They were a little lax on him when he first came in as a rookie. Maybe they let him do things they shouldn’t have, things that they have to live with now.”
