Dez Bryant on Cowboys fans: 'I need to hear them some more'

Friday October 17th, 2014

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant said he hopes the team's home crowd is louder than it has been for Sunday's game against the New York Giants at AT&T Stadium.

The Cowboys are 5-1 and in first place in the NFC East, while the Giants are 3-3 and in third place. From The Dallas Morning News:

“We do need more Cowboys fans there,” Bryant said. “That’s exactly what we need. and we need them to be a little bit louder whenever [New York’s] defense is on the field. I’m not hearing them, I need to hear them some more.

“We need all Cowboys fans and we need them to be as loud as possible to affect the opponent.”

After the Cowboys' last home game, a 20-17 win over the Houston Texans, quarterback Tony Romo indicated he was not pleased with the support he and his teammates received. 

"We played on the road today in that football game," Tony Romo said after the game. "We need to do a better job as a fan base."

Bryant leads the team with 36 catches and 439 receiving yards this season.
