Bryant criticized for leaving field before game is over, but Romo is understanding: 'It's not fun for any of us'

Dez Bryant left the field before the game was over, drawing criticism from two national analysts.

But quarterback Tony Romo shrugged it off.

“It’s an emotional game,” he said. “You get to the end there, obviously, it’s not fun for any of us to lose a football game. It’s not an enjoyable process the way it ends, no matter how it ends. It’s always tough emotionally. So, it is what it is.”

During the review that resulted in an overturned call that awarded an interception to the Packers, Bryant walked to the sideline and unbuckled his chin strap.

“You cannot do that,” NBC Sunday Night Football analyst Tony Dungy said. “I’ve got a problem with that, as a coach, as a teammate. That is something you just cannot do if you want to be a leader on that team.”

Fellow analyst Rodney Harrison said, “I’m very disappointed. I love him as a player, but he’s got to grow up and be more accountable to his teammates.”

Bryant, who had 11 catches on a season-high 17 targets for 153 yards and a touchdown, declined to talk to reporters.
