Stephen Jones made some pretty interesting comments in praising Dez Bryant on Ben and Skin yesterday…
He says he’s not trying to dis Miles, but he is handing the #1 WR job to Dez Bryant based on potential. Right now Dez Bryant isn’t anywhere near being the 2nd or 3rd best WR in the NFL. Why does this team always feel the need to over value the Cowboys players when they speak publicly. All that does is make him look silly. The player he’s talking about had zero 100 yard receiving games in 2011.
Just let Dez do what he’s doing right now. There have been no major incidents with Dez and he seems to be impressing people at all of these offseason practices. The last thing he needs is Stephen going on the radio telling people he’s better than Miles Austin.
Why not just say we are happy with Dez’s progress and we hope he has a breakout season.
Every year this team has the most talent and they are going to win the Super Bowl. This is what everyone starts saying in the Spring. Then by December they are struggling to get a playoff berth and half of these ‘great’ players aren’t doing enough to win those crucial games.
As a fan it gets so tired. The only players on this team who should be mentioned in the ‘top 2nd or 3rd players in this league at that position’ are Tony Romo, Jason Witten and DeMarcus Ware. They have played on an elite level for years now.
I want Dez to be the greatest WR ever to play the game. If he does this the Cowboys are going to win a lot of games. But stop putting so much pressure on him already. These players hear these things. Dez will hear about this from friends. Miles will hear about this from friends too.
Sometimes Stephen does things which tell you he’s definitely Jerry Jones son.
