That hit Sidney took at the end of the CHI game on his game-winning catch looked pretty sacrificial. This is also the same Sidney that has to be held out of practice because they're afraid he'll hurt himself with how hard he's trying. If he's going to be a malcontent, he's certainly taking a roundabout way of getting there.
I'm glad you said this, because this is the first word that comes to my mind as well. I have seen NO evidence to suggest that Sidney gives ANYTHING less than 100% of himself to the team. Sure, he's shown some frustration after failed plays where he was open, but I've never seen anything to suggest that represents a pattern of me-first behavior. Those 'silent tantrums' you keep referencing are something I believe I remember, and they tended to be plays which resulted in no gain, an incomplete pass, a sack, etc, where Sidney was open and wanted the ball. Never once saw him upset about not getting the ball when it resulted in a better play than if he'd been targeted.
