Dez Bryant had arguably the worst game of his career in the Cowboy's 21-12 loss to Seattle on Sunday. Bryant lost a fumble in the second quarter that led to Seattle's first touchdown and then dropped a pass in the third quarter that deflected in the air for an interception. That killed a Cowboys' drive and the turnover led to another Seahawks' touchdown. His sideline grumbling and decision not to face the media after the game didn't help. "There is a storm brewing," Joe Buck said on the broadcast as Fox cut to a shot of unhappy Bryant on the bench. Peter King of Sports Illustrated/The MMQB wasn't impressed. "I suppose as the curtain draws on Dez Bryant's eighth NFL season, it's too late to say, Grow up, Dez," King wrote in his weekly column. "He's 29 years old. Against Seattle, he was pouty about not getting the ball, and when he finally caught a Dak Prescott pass, he fumbled it away to the Seahawks. "If Dallas is going to retool after this season, I'd seriously consider starting with this head case." King wasn't alone in the sentiment. WFAA's Dale Hansen was among those advocating for the Cowboys to ditch Bryant. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones supported the receiver in a Tuesday radio interview.
