05:42 PM ET 10.18 | Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is quietly turning into the No. 1 receiver Jerry Jones had in mind when he drafted him in the first round in 2010. "He continues to become a better receiver, and he's continuing to work at it really hard and he's continuing to get better," Tony Romo said. Bryant has 200 yards and two touchdowns in his last two games. He has been targeted 28 times during that span, compared to just 11 for Miles Austin.

Much higher than I expected, I honestly thought it'd be around 15.
If he stops being so immature and desappearing he's going to be a superstar

Dez Bryant has the stink of Jerry Jones all about him. They are of the same stuff, when it comes to placing a high value on superficial tinsel and and being oblivious to steadfast character.

They had better beat Carolina... or they are screwed for 2012.

Dez Bryant is only one of the key players on the team, not the only one, they all have to rally around each other, too much finger pointing!!!

A real wordsmith. I'll bet your wit is matched only by your charm.

I'm not a big Dez Bryant fan, but I've got to admit he had a good game against Baltimore, and he gave fits to one of the better defenses in the NFL.

One more catch on a ball he should have had and the 'Boys would have sent it to overtime. This is a team that's inconsistent, but not as bad as their record.

But Otis, you continually bash Jerry Jones.

However, you do it with class, with panache and with eloquence.

I never figured you for a Jerry Jones fan Otis. I have to admit, I do blame Jerry for the demise of the Cowboys winning traditions and trash him at every opportunity.

I give him credit as an owner. As a GM, he sucks. There is no question about that.

I maintain only that if they drafted better, they would be fine. I lay that at the feet of Jerry. Better scouting will take care of that.

I still remember how bad it was under Bum Bright. I give Jerry credit for changing that. He didn't have to hire Jimmy... But he did.

I will take Jerry over 80% of the other owners in the league. He's no Mike Brown or Bill Bidwell.
