Dez Bryant doesn’t care what the critics think

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant had a productive game in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens, catching 13 passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns. But afterward he was criticized by Ravens cornerback Cary Williams, who says he’s tired of Bryant begging for flags every time he loses a one-on-one matchup.

For his part, Bryant says he doesn’t care what Williams — or anyone else outside the Cowboys’ locker room — thinks.

I don’t care what anybody thinks,” Bryant said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I only care about what my coaches and what my teammates think. That’s the only thing that matters. Don’t nobody else understands what’s going on. Only this organization.”

Whether Bryant cares or not, some of the critics have valid points — Bryant has had some big drops this season, including a dropped two-point conversion pass late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 31-29 loss. But Bryant also deserves credit for leading the Cowboys with 34 catches for 364 yards this season. He’ll have fewer critics if he has more two-touchdown games like he had on Sunday.

    Dez needs to stop being a baby. If he didn’t have a boneheaded play every week, maybe people would bash him so much. Never have I seen a player so enabled like the Cowboys enable this idiot. Word to Dez, you’re not that good.

    Did Dez Bryant and Jermichael Finley get separated at birth?

    Guess what, Dez? The fans don’t care about what you think, either. They care about whether you and the team produce. Period. Cowboys fans are like those of almost any team–if you win and produce, they’ll tolerate the rest of your act, but if they don’t and you don’t, you’re fair game.

    I love how he used a push off to set up his touchdown catch and then complains for a penalty on the very next play where there was 1/2 the contact of the first.

    lol, i’d worry about your teammates. They & Jerruh are most likely thinking that he’s not dependable, questionably conditioned, a crybaby, spoiled, unwilling to accept responsibility, lazy and another off the field problem waiting to happen.

    Oh wait, everyone already thinks that.

    “I only care about what my coaches and what my teammates think. ”

    Because his teammates think it was just awesome that he dropped the the 2-point conversion that would have tied the game?

    Such a painful way to lose that game yesterday. I just hope that Garret and Co. don’t lose this team. They fought and clawed to get back into that game only to have a second Herm Edwards-esque clock management snafu (in the past 2 years) cost us the game.

    Dez. You are not a very good receiver. Hope you can sling french fries. You’ll be out of the NFL next year. Even the Cowboys eventually fall out of love with their toys.

    Don’t worry Dez. It’s not all your fault. Your offensive line stinks, so does your owner/gm, head coach, and quarterback. Time management? Really? That’s how Dallas loses games? I mean, coach and quarterback have to work together to manage a game. So Dallas fans, if you want to see a good receiver make a clutch catch, a competent head coach and pro bowl quarterback time manage a game and WIN – watch the end of the Falcons game yesterday.

    He obviously cares about what everyone else thinks because he tried to cover his ass when he dropped an easy catch for 2pt conversion to tie the game by crying foul to the ref and begging for a flag.

    A guy who doesn’t care would have simply run off the field and explained to his team that he didn’t get it done because he didn’t.

    It’s not his fault he’s overrated.
    He doesn’t even make the ratings.

    Nice hands Dez!!

    Dallas is a circus and Dez is the biggest clown in it.

    In the last seconds of the game the Cowboys had 22 seconds to run a play and then call timeout… BUT the Cowboy wideouts were A) too slow getting back to the line, or (in Dez Bryant’s case) B) Too busy complaining to the refs as the seconds ticked off the clock. The Cowboys have no one to blame but themselves for the loss yesterday. No excuse to have 22 seconds on the clock and not get a play off. Stop looking for flags and FOCUS.

    “Don’t nobody else understands what’s going on. Only this organization.”

    His English professors at Oklahoma State must be so proud.

    Hey man I’m just glad Dallas didn’t lose because Jason Garrett iced his own kicker this time.

    Tell me if they had another timeout left it would have surprised you if he did.

    Dude is garbage.

    Maybe he’s been watching old Cowboy film. Michael Irvin committed offensive pass interference on every play for about 10 years and got into the HOF.

    Could’nt agree more

    He sounds intelligent. I’m sure he won’t be broke 5 years after he’s done playing.

    The Cowboys and Dez have a “get-right” game against my hapless Panthers this week. He might have 10 TDs against our secondary. As much as I hate to say it, expect big numbers from Romo, Whitten, Bryant, Austin, and the RBs.

  19. openseason51 says: Oct 15, 2012 2:03 PM

    Dez Bryant is bad for Dez Bryant. He is not that good or he wouldn’t drop passes. He has his own agenda and thinks he should own the team. The problem with the Cowboys is their owner. Stay out of the player selection, let professionals do it for you. Then the Dez Bryants are traded away. Jones go find an oil well to drill or something and leave the team alone. The only rings Jone’s has was when he didn’t really try and run the team.

    Dez is the Felix Pie of football — tons of talent and incredible athletic ability, but he just can’t put it all together on the field.

  21. NakedCowboy! says: Oct 15, 2012 2:24 PM

    Dez is a very good receiver who is liable to have 2-3 brain farts every week… don’t blame him alone for cowboys loss… there is plenty to share all around and Jason garret has to take most of it… clock management and getting the play in was awful…

  22. musicman495 says: Oct 15, 2012 2:25 PM

    The Cowboys should title their highlight film from yesterday’s game, “Running the Two Minute Drill in Four Minutes.”

  23. f00sballfan says: Oct 15, 2012 2:25 PM

    There’s a reason WR’s have the stereotype of being prima donnas. Exhibit A ^

  24. blahblahblah1313 says: Oct 15, 2012 2:27 PM

    “Don’t nobody else understands” . Please tell me that is a typo…

  25. rubicon202 says: Oct 15, 2012 2:45 PM

    Dez digs the hole even deeper for himself…

    -Cowboys fan

    In due time Dez Bryant will end up like TO, Chad Johnson and Plexico Burress. Out of football and broke and with no way to earn a living. Hopefully some former Cowboy will be able to reach him and open his eyes.

  27. bartman1156 says: Oct 15, 2012 3:35 PM

    Dez should bring that up at his next mensa meeting.

  28. ceschatz says: Oct 15, 2012 3:43 PM

    how is this any different than every other wide out in the league?

  29. materialman80 says: Oct 15, 2012 3:51 PM

    Dez is the new T.O. He thinks he’s ALOT better then he is…..

  30. bbwasright says: Oct 15, 2012 11:10 PM

    He probably ought to care about what the refs think too. Has noone ever read him the story of the little bot who cried wolf?

  31. wakiash says: Oct 16, 2012 9:10 AM

    Free Dez Bryant and Dan Baily. The Cowboys organization is just a pretender.
