10:25 AM ET 11.08 | "Potential" is a word I hear often when scouts are evaluating high school talent going to the college level. Once you are at the college level, "potential" doesn't get you drafted. Results get you drafted. In 2010, 23 NFL teams passed on a chance to draft a barrel full of "potential" with Dez Bryant, and the Cowboys got stuck holding the check. If it weren't for Randy Moss, the Cowboys wouldn't be in this situation. Jerry Jones, upset with himself for passing on Moss (like many other teams did) because of character issues snapped at the bait, and were caught in the Dez Bryant trap ??? hook, line, and sinker.

Hey, I said exactly that in one of these Dez-related threads a couple days ago. Almost word-for-word.

You hang in there Jerry and keep thinking you know all about football players, and thanks for all the Cowboy haters out there that you are not giving up your GM position.

He's doing okay at the moment. Cross your fingers and hope for the best.

You've been plagiarized.

Plenty have... it's not like this blogger is plowing fertile ground.

Dez just needs coach to kick him in the butt once, twice, but not three times, that will make him a lady.

Dez Bryant is a million dollars worth of talent with a ten cent head. In a recent poll Dez was voted "Most likely to be Rae Carruth II."

For every Randy Moss in the draft there are 10 Dez Bryants.

The Cowboys are not the only ones left holding the check. I drafted him in my fantasy league, let???s just say he has not started for me since week 3. I???m looking for a sucker to trade him to

Dez Bry-Can't is floundering, and this surprises people? Wasn't it JJ that signed Alonzo Spellman?
Enough said.

Hey Dez runs like a gazelle. Holds onto the ball like a pitt bull. Has more moves than "mitches beyonce". and he puts it all on the line for the Dallas fans, week in week out.
OK so that's what he believes.

The Cowgirls again!!!

Unless this guy gets some help with his issues he will most likely be homeless and living under bridges in ten years.

Another "Dez Bryant Doesn't Get It" thread. I guess they're running out of Tebow stories.

I didn't even see this thread yesterday. I liked it better when we had only four or five useless stories to navigate every day.
