VIDEO: Jim Schwartz Informs Dez Bryant Of Incomplete Pass

In the third quarter of Sunday's game, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had a catch turned into an incompletion after a Detroit Lions challenge. Although the play was originally ruled a catch, it was pretty clear Bryant bobbled the ball and only got one foot down inbounds after he secured possession.

While the play was being reviewed by officials, Bryant got into it with Lions safety Louis Delmas, who is no stranger to trash talk. The two were separated, but Jim Schwartz had some fun with what happened by shouting and motioning at Bryant that the pass was incomplete.

Per Dave Birkett, Delmas said this after the game about what Schwartz did: "Thing about our coaches ... they think they're still players. When the ref ruled it outta bounds, he felt like he was the one defending Bryant."

Schwartz has a certain swagger about him with how he acts on the sideline, and I think both the players and fans appreciate it. His attitude is that he and his players won't take anything from anyone, and the team's play on the field reflects that.
