The NFL has released video of a portion of Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant’s animated sideline discussion during Sunday’s loss at Detroit, and the video shows Bryant trying to fire up Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
As Bryant, Romo and Cowboys receivers coach Derek Dooley discussed how to attack the Lions’ defense, Bryant expressed confidence to Romo.
“We’re the best in the NFL on that,” Bryant told Romo. “We’re the best in the NFL.”
The video released by the NFL doesn’t show everything Bryant said on the sideline and doesn’t include what appeared to be a heated exchange with Cowboys tight end Jason Witten near the end of the game. But based on the available evidence, Bryant appeared to be trying to pump Romo up.
