    Michael Irvin: "I truly will talk to Dez about this. You can't go after the quarterback. I have never gone after Troy [Aikman]."
    Michael Irvin: "I truly will talk to Dez about this. You can't go after the quarterback. I have never gone after Troy [Aikman]."
    Michael Irvin said he talked to people in the #Cowboys camp. Dez Bryant doesn't have a problem with Witten or Romo. "He wants the football."
    Michael Irvin: "Guys are telling me that [Dez Bryant and Tony Romo] were embracing on the bus ride and going to the plane talking about it."

    Michael Irvin would emote on the sideline but he was always careful not to involve Troy Aikman. Says he will advise Dez do same

    By all accounts I've read Ware, Witten and in particular Romo are like big brother/father figures to him (because he never had one) - so yeah deal with it but lets not act like this is the issue. Anemic offense is issue #1 and I go straight to Garrett and his offensive system, and now Callahan and his play calling. Still feel like everything is a comeback route. If Delmas drops down and remove the slant from Dez, shouldn't that open up things behind him?

    I'm not going to fully blast a defense (just like 80%) when their entire d-line is gone, they held them down in points until the 4th. You know those yards would have gone down had our offense been able to hold the ball at least a little bit. 2 big plays is not an offense. Even on that one to Dez - that was a pretty risky throw - I'm sure people would be going nuts had it been picked off.

    Wise advice from Irvin. Dez took it too far.

    And bash me if you want but loading up a big F yeah to the TV camera means he is representing the team poorly.

    Romo handled it great like a leader. Didn't lose his cool when everyone else was, kept playing, and got Dez the ball. Garrett took them both out of the game in the last two drives and gave his backup RBs and horrible defense the game to win or lose.

    It looked like he went the lightest on Romo and he (Romo) said it was fine. The bigger story should be what happened between Dez and Witten/Ware. That looked like it got ugly.

    I wasn't surprised by Dez' actions. And I'm really not too worried about it.

    He's made big strides, but he's got growing up to do. This wasn't a TO rant. This was just uncontrolled immaturity that is still well-placed.

    And the team knows this. Romo, Witten, Ware.....they'll talk to him, he'll apologize, and they'll move forward just fine.

    I think he went after Romo pretty hard. It was not a good look.

    That will lose a lot of games for you. He needs to stop, and he will.

    That's not fire or passion. That's just being out of control. Notice he wouldn't even sit in the huddle for the design of the final play. He had lost it. He was useless by then.

    I agree with this. Not the end of the world. But it needs to be explained to Dez that he has to pick and choose his spots to go public with his rants and F bombs to national TV.

    I don't really have a problem with it at all, but if I did it would be how he went at the coaches, Dooley in particular.

    He went off on Romo too, it's just that Tony seems to be the type to sit there and take it whereas Witten wasn't having any of it.

    Yes. If your emotions get so far it of control that you can no longer play effectively, it's a problem. And I agree that it will get corrected, just not sure why so many fans want to sweep it under the rug.

    The team puts up with it because he's really good, but at some point in his career there will be a drop off in skill and they will ship him off with the quickness for acting up

    It was big brothers scuffling with a little brother. Dez was furious over what he saw taking place on the field and he wanted his teammates to know he has no intention of being apart of such an act of disgrace to the star. Everytime the ball was thrown Dez's way something good happened and he wanted to put the team on his back and win the game. Garrett and the OC didn't allow this to happen.

    Some of you don't understand that this is Dezs life work and some people take pride in what they devote their life to. He's a 24 year old and he was the key to a victory yesterday, yes we chose to ignore him for large stretches of the game.

    He shouted at a few people on the sideline, he didn't burn down an orphanage. People need to settle down.

    Listen to Dez's interview on DC.com. That is a man that is all about team. I re-watched the heated exchanges again and they're even less of a big deal than when I saw them live. Can't blame him for losing his cool a little at the end. I've never played team sports, but I would imagine that having a guy like that on your team with so much love and intensity towards the game would be inspiring, if anything.

    I could care less what Dez said. He was right. It's about time someone said it. I don't care who's toes he stepped on. I'm sick of this mediocrity year after year and it never stops.

    Inspiring until it goes too far, sure. I love Dez's passion but there is a point where one can go off the deep end.
