Dez Bryant Is Wrong

Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News writes that Dallas Cowboys first-round wide receiver Dez Bryant is wrong for refusing to carry a veteran's shoulder pads after Sunday morning's practice.

"Since getting drafted by the Cowboys, Bryant has largely done everything right. He was at training camp on time. He's made plays since the first rookie mini-camp through the first three practices of training camp. He has a lot of people salivating about his abilities and what he can mean to the Cowboys' success in 2010.

But he's wrong here.

It's a diva act. It's the result of too much enabling and entitlement. I wrote after the first mini-camp that the rookie was hearing too much praise from the coaches. The coaches can feel like that, but they didn't need to express it publicly all the time. Keep the kid humble, keep him focused and remind him constantly that he has not done a thing in the NFL yet."

Archer's post is a must-read, and not just because I happen to agree with every word of it.
