Did coach Schwartz have verbal match with Cowboys WR Bryant?

The Lions are fired up.  And it’s the coach who has the most fire.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz was on his high horse and had some choice words for Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant following a challenge he won that reversed a potential big-play reception by Bryant.

The play came with under four minutes remaining in the third quarter of Sunday’s 34-30 impressive comeback victory over the Cowboys. Bryant made a diving snag along the sideline on a 34-yard pass from Tony Romo, however, he struggled to keep control as safety Louis Delmas came in for the hit and knocked him out of bounds.

The play was initially ruled a catch, but Schwartz challenged it and won. Bryant started voicing his disgust over the ruling by the Lions bench, and Schwartz was caught on camera firing back at the wideout while signaling incomplete pass.

“Coach Schwartz was so into the game that he actually thought he was the one out there defending Dez Bryant,” Delmas said Monday.

On Monday, the Lions coach insisted on proceeding to further the exchange partaken with the talented Cowboys pass catcher:

“I don’t think Dez Bryant had a catch after about midway through the first quarter,” Schwartz said.

When you’re 4-0, I guess you can say anything you want because the unblemished record backs it up, right?
