I'd rather keep it here instead of the general....for obvious reasons...but his outbursts have certainly created some interesting reactions and comments.

Where do you stand....did it help or hurt the team.

I added the poll to the OP.

For me, personally, I liked to see his passion. Let him speak his mind! Sometimes Romo needs to hear it from his WR's so he pulls his head out of his arse and opens his eyes some. We were stagnant on Offense all first half and up until Dez went off. It lit a fire in the Offense.

Let him speak his mind!

It definitely does NOT help the team. When other players, who are leaders on the team, have to try to calm him down it causes a distraction. He is part of a team and needs to act like it. He needs to STFU and play football.

I've always loved the passion Dez have showen on the sideline. He has looked like he have been a good motivator, and I've always held a lot of respect for him because of that.

BUT, today he lost his temper. He got frustrated. Feeding the media and creating tensions between team mates does not help your team. He should simply have tried to motivate his team and say if you can get the ball to me, I will make the play. By the reactions on the sideline, he didn't do that. Instead he have taken attention away from important things with the upcoming media storm, and likely have created some tension on the team.

- He needs to be mature enough to handle the situation in an appropriate, motivational way and take the more negative things behind closed doors with him cooled a bit down.

Thanks for the poll Tex.

The general forum is a riot. Now there is a thread about Jerry Jones.

Anyway...there is a right way and a wrong way to do just about anything.

I think he stepped over the line a little bit. Not necessarily because it was at Romo..or Witten...or Ware....just in general. Maybe it appears worse because Megatron lit up the stat sheet. His timing of the outbursts make it appear that he is being selfish because he's being shown up. I don't think that was the case tho. He was just pissed and frustrated.

As far as poll options, neither. I personally would've liked him to keep himself in check and express his frustrations differently, but I don't like how he was being used in the game either. The playcalling left a lot to be desired in my opinion.

EDIT - Not that I dislike his passion in other instances.

I am as big a fan of Dez as most of you are and I like that he is passionate about the game and winning.

But that was not a professional way to act at all. He lost his temper today and I do not like seeing that from one of the best players on the team. I hope he will be better from now on, but I was not pleased seeing that from him today.

It's definitely being blown way out of proportion,I'm assuming he was frustrated at the lack of success the offense was having,especially with all the turnovers the defense gave them.

Also,with the way Callahan was running the offense,I'd be frustrated too.

They need a closer at the RB position to do so. We've not had one since Barber's third or fourth year. I clamoured for Eddie Lacy or Giovanni Bernard, both who, as rookies so far, are looking pretty reliable as every down guys. And everyone called me insane, insulted me, and two people even sent me PMs calling me every profane name in the book for suggesting taking either of them early.

But, situations like today, are why I said we needed one of those guys. And here it is coming to bite us in the rear end, lacking a solid every down runner.

The early game frustration was justified. It was ridiculous how little he was involved offensively. The late game tirade was detestable, but not as meaningful as people are making it out to be.

Love his passion, but today's little episode was more temper tantrum than passion. It wasn't about firing up his teammates, it was about him. And, solely him.

I'm curious to see how he handles this coming week. He's going to get rubbed about this by the media.

Agreed, man.

Sure, you gotta get the ball to your top dog. Stafford kept tossing it up to his top dog, and they won the game. Dallas, instead, worked little button hooks and shallow digs and tosses around the side. And they lost. When you have a guy like Dez, Calvin, AJ Green, Julio, etc...you have to just toss it at them and let 'em go and get it! That is what they do, and rule changes favor them greatly in jump ball situations.

But, poor decisions or whatever aside, you don't blow up on your teammates. At least not in the public eye. Save that for the locker room. You don't need to cause the drama of a media madness because you decided to shout on the sideline.
