Well, if Dez Bryant can take nothing else away from the Cowboys’ heartbreaking collapse to the New York Giants on Sunday night, he may have just found a new touchdown dance.
After a 50-yard touchdown reception on a blown coverage by New York, Bryant broke into a salsa dance--which is the trademark celebration of the Giants’ Victor Cruz. After the game, Bryant suggested that we may have not seen the last of the dance--and, he said, its execution was in the making long before kickoff.
“Man, I practiced on it the whole week, I’m not going to lie,” Bryant said after the loss, per ESPN Dallas.
Bryant, who was en route to his car during the exchange with reporters, was then asked if the dance was a nod to Cruz, or a dig at he and the Giants.
“You can look at it both ways,” he said. “I think I’m a little bit more looser than Victor Cruz, so I might just have to steal his dance. I might turn it into a regular.”
Of course, it was all downhill for Dallas after Bryant’s touchdown reception, a fact that he acknowledged in the exchange.
“It would have been so much nicer if we would have won,” he said.
And here, we agree whole-heartedly.
