08:02 AM ET 09.19 | An outstanding training camp seems not to have carried into the regular season for Dez Bryant, who had appeared to lay the groundwork for his best pro season. [In Week 2,] Seattle's big, physical corners gave Bryant fits, holding him to three receptions for 17 yards in the Cowboys loss. He was targeted seven times. "I thought at times he did a good job," head coach Jason Garrett said. "Other times, he didn't win on enough routes." ... "Everything's hard. But at the same time, if you keep battling, if you win on some of those routes, you have opportunities for bigger plays. You just have to keep fighting, keep competing throughout the ball game. At times he did that, other times he didn't."

And yet we had (im)posters on here the other day telling us how wonderful a receiver Dez is.
Now your hometown newspaper is telling us what a disappoinment he is.
Hmmmmm. Who will I believe?

for the most part T.O. was productive on the field so I see no similarities.

In a few years, you'll see him at an urban Interstate off-ramp with a sign, "Will punch your momma for food."

or go into the 'family' business.

Same storey from last week ......overrated Dez.

I wonder if this no-alcohol, no-partying, lights-out-at-10 lifestyle is turning him into a better citizen but a lousy football player. Taking away a guys swagger isn't always going to produce a champion.

He's not equipped for that job.
