CBS- Many coaches say the trip to London is a business trip, but that appears not to be the case for the Cowboys’ WR Dez Bryant. Bryant acknowledged he did go out and party Friday night and broke curfew.
If there is a team in the NFL where you can get away with going out a couple nights prior to the game, it is the Dallas Cowboys. Let's be real, the person that runs that team is Jerry Jones. Half surprised pictures of Dez and Jerry doing blow off twin hookers haven't surfaced yet. Who cares if Jason Garrett enforced a curfew? Nothing he says matters. He probably told Jerry about the curfew and then Jerry patted him on the top of a head like a little boy and told him to go script the first 15 plays.
Did the Cowboys front office really expect Dez Bryant to go to another country and not party his dick off? The closest that guy has been to leaving the country is the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. Of course he went out. Who wouldn't go out? You made them fly to fucking London to play the Jaguars, of all teams, on a high school quality field. Doing body shots off a foreign broad was the only part of that weekend to look forward to. I probably would have went on a 36 hour bender then puked on Blake Bortles' shoes during the coin flip. Some teams just aren't worth getting a good night's rest.
Seriously though. The NFL is all about parity, correct? They should make every single team that plays the Jaguars or Raiders play drunk. Like their only curfew is they can't be back before 4am. Make sure they are dry heaving on the field. That's how you give every team a chance. When a team plays Jacksonville at home they should ship them off to South Beach on Saturday night and pick them up and take them directly to the game Sunday morning. That's how you separate the contenders from the pretenders. If you can't beat the Jaguars after a couple cocktails then you deserve the loss. Pretty fucking funny that Dez just readily admitted that he went out. Like "yeah? so? you know we're playing the Jaguars, right?". The only reason this story isn't a big deal is because the Cowboys won, and the Cowboys won before they even took the field.
