The end of the Packers/Cowboys game yesterday was a complete disaster for Dallas. Green Bay played solid defense, Tony Romo did what Tony Romo does best, and Dez Bryant walked off the field before the clock hit :00 and looked like a crybaby while doing it. And as it turns out, that's because he was a crybaby at the end of the game.
Earlier today, a bunch of reporters caught up with the Cowboys wide receiver to talk about him walking off the field prematurely. And he apologized for it before explaining why he couldn't bear to be out on the field with his teammates.
"I was wrong," he said. "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."
Bryant also reiterated that he was not upset with any of his teammates and that he didn't want them to take him leaving the field the wrong way.
"Whenever I'm out on the football field, it's all about the team," he said. "I'm a team guy and that's what I think about and that's what I focus on. I extremely, extremely apologize for leaving, but my teammates and coaches understand. I am a very emotional player."
Obviously. But yo, if Tony Romo can sit on the sideline without shedding a tear—and we know he's shed plenty of them behind closed doors during the course of his career—so can you, Dez. So please stop doing things at the end of games that make you look like a crappy teammate.
