I’m not gonna exert 500 words into a post about that ridiculous $55,000 dollar dinner the Cowboys hung on Dez Bryant the other night. With the economy still sagging and millions of families struggling, that’s the last thing anybody wants to hear about right now.
Instead, I do want to keep the spotlight on Dez, but I’d rather talk about what a great start he is off to in his NFL career.
Despite the occasional rookie mistake, Dez Bryant now has at least 50 receiving yards in each of the Cowboys’ first three games.
Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett calls it a significant accomplishment, but cautions that he still has a lot of work to do.
“He’s got a lot of steps to take. He’s transitioned well for a guy who missed most of training camp. To be able to perform as well as he has been very impressive.”
I agree with Garrett, and I look forward to watching Dez Bryant blossom into a future playmaker for the Cowboys and one of the NFL’s brightest stars.
Bryant has nerves of steel, thrives under pressure, and had oftentimes flashed his game-breaking speed and elusive moves.
“He’s not bothered by game situations,” Garrett said. “He embraces them. He loves to play, and he can make plays. We’ve tried to give him an opportunity to do that, and he has stepped up and responded.”
That’s the kind of story and the kind of quotes I would rather read regarding Dez Bryant… But that’s just me.
