I’m hoping Jason Garrett means one of Dez Bryant’s Cowboys teammates should have removed him from the locker room area, because you can’t just end all the interviews and kick the reporters out.

Garrett conceded that the Cowboys organization and Bryant handled his locker room tirade poorly, referring to it as a “teaching moment” ” before going on to say that "100 percent of our guys do things the right way about 98 percent of the time,” according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

“Well, to me, it’s a great teaching opportunity for us as coaches and a great learning opportunity for Dez and really for our whole football team,” Garrett said. “That’s what we’ve tried to do is use it as an opportunity to get better.

“Dez shouldn’t be in that situation. If someone is going to incite him, just remove yourself from the situation.

“We didn’t handle that situation the right way. Dez didn’t handle that situation the right way. We have to understand the world that we live in, and we’ve tried to make that abundantly clear to him and to our football team.

“Again, we’re going to use this as an opportunity to get better and handle those situations going forward.”

Garrett’s comments at his Friday morning news conference, came less than 24 hours after Bryant went bonkers during a profanity-laced rant against the media about what he perceives to be unfair treatment.

Bryant only calmed down after Garrett removed him, so maybe that was his point.
