Bad enough you drop the most important pass in the game, but now you are going to cry about a pass interference too? Read here.
The man who was covering him, Ravens cornerback Cary Williams, says the 23-year old Bryant needs to “be a man.”
“I felt like it was a P.I. My opinion,” said Bryant, visibly upset after a 31-29 loss which dropped Dallas to 2-3. “Not saying I couldn’t catch it, because I feel like I can make difficult catches. But I feel like he put his arm around me. I haven’t seen the play yet. But it wasn’t called.”
The play came after a Bryant touchdown catch against Williams with 32 seconds left on the clock, which pulled the Cowboys within two points of tying the game.
Told of Bryant’s claims, Williams, 27, was both surprised and amused.
“I see it as good defense, man,” Williams told USA TODAY Sports. “Dez is a great player, but it wasn’t pass interference. It’s two players going at it. And the referees let it happen. It is what it is, man. I didn’t get my hand in there early, he just needed to catch the ball. I was able to make the play and he didn’t. Kudos to me.

“He needs to step up and be a man. You can’t be a baby about stuff. You’ve got to man up. It’s one on one. Mano-a-mano. I got you. Sometimes you’re going to win. Sometimes you’re going to lose.
“You’ve just got to be a man and accept responsibility, give credit where credit is due. If it was me I’d say, you know what, he made the play and I didn’t. Bottom line. Don’t complain and look for a flag, man.”
Why does make me take the side of Cary Williams on this? Because he’s right. There was no pass interference on the play. If you want to cry with Dez you are an idiot.
