Ravens’ corner tells Dez Bryant to “man up”
Baltimore Ravens cornerback, Cary Williams took a shot at the Dallas Cowboy lighting rod receiver, Dez Bryant after Sunday’s game. Dallas, which lost to Baltimore in a thrilling game 31-29, had a chance to tie the game with a two-point conversion with 32 seconds left in regulation. Bryant, who had just caught a touchdown to pull the Cowboys within two points the play prior, failed to catch the two-pont conversion pass. Afterwords, Dez has some things to say about the play that took place.
“I felt like it was a P.I. My opinion,” said Bryant, visibly upset after a 31-29 loss which dropped Dallas to 2-3. “Not saying I couldn’t catch it, because I feel like I can make difficult catches. But I feel like he put his arm around me. I haven’t seen the play yet. But it wasn’t called.”
Ravens’ corner Cary Williams immediately responded back at Dez Bryant:
“I see it as good defense, man,” Williams told USA TODAY Sports. “Dez is a great player, but it wasn’t pass interference. It’s two players going at it. And the referees let it happen. It is what it is, man. I didn’t get my hand in there early, he just needed to catch the ball. I was able to make the play and he didn’t. Kudos to me.
Then Williams decided it must be Bryant’s lack of maturity for saying he was interfered. You know, because no other wide receiver in the league complains for pass interference calls.
“He needs to step up and be a man. 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.”
