Ravens corner to Dez Bryant: Step up and be a man

October, 15, 2012
BALTIMORE -- Dez Bryant's complaints about pass interference on Sunday's critical failed two-point conversion didn't go over well with Ravens cornerback Cary Williams.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant says the loss to the Ravens is disappointing but it's still something to build off of.

In fact, Williams responded by challenging Bryant's manhood.

“He needs to step up and be a man," Williams told reporters in the Baltimore locker room after the Ravens' win. "You can’t be a baby about stuff. You’ve got to man up. It’s one-on-one. Mano-a-mano. I got you. Sometimes you’re going to win. Sometimes you’re going to lose.

"You’ve just got to be a man and accept responsibility, give credit where credit is due. If it was me, I’d say, you know what, he made the play and I didn’t. Bottom line. Don’t complain and look for a flag, man.”

Williams had tight coverage on the play, a back-shoulder fade similar to Bryant's touchdown on the previous snap, but it's not as if he deserves credit for denying Bryant. The ball bounced off Bryant's chest, a pass he should have caught.
