Dez Bryant doesn't fire back at Detroit coach
By Tim MacMahon
IRVING, Texas – Dez Bryant chose not to respond to Lions coach Jim Schwartz’s day-after jabs at him.
Bryant and Schwartz got into a heated discussion after the Cowboys’ receiver made a jugging catch down the Detroit sideline during Sunday’s second half, a play ruled an incompletion after a replay review. Schwartz rubbed it in with an exaggerated incomplete signal from the sidelines, along with some choice words, and didn’t stop there.
Schwartz threw a couple of jabs on his radio show the next day, remarking that he didn’t remember Bryant catching a pass after the first quarter and adding that he’d never seen a receiver celebrate an incompletion so much.
Bryant laughed when the comments were relayed him, but he opted to take the high road.
It’s a safe bet, however, that Bryant would love a chance to see the Lions again in the playoffs.
