Sideline snit by Bryant not an issue for Garrett

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett did not take issue with the way Dez Bryant reacted on the sideline in the team’s loss on Thanksgiving to the New Orleans Saints.

The rookie first-round draft pick from Oklahoma State had a meltdown of sorts on the sideline during the frustrating loss. Dallas made a furious rally to take the lead late in the game only to choke it away. Garrett said the outburst wasn’t directed at a teammate or a sign of frustration that he was not getting the ball more from quarterback Jon Kitna, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“I don't see that as a negative,'' Garrett said. ``With any player, you want to make sure they're focused on the task at hand, but he's such an enthusiastic, passionate guy. In no way was it to me, and I don't think to the offensive guys or anybody on the team, a distraction.”

Bryant has been one of the very bright spots in a season gone bad. He’s made 44 receptions for 547 yards with six touchdowns and looks like he will be a fixture in the offense for years to come.
