04:10 PM ET 09.09 | Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant suffered a leg injury late in the game on Sunday night against the New York Giants, but he was healthy for a large portion of the game and still failed to fill up his stat sheet. Bryant finished the game against the NFC East rival New York Giants with a mere four catches for 22 yards, but quarterback Tony Romo explains why he was unable to get Bryant the ball as often as he had hoped - he wasn't going to force it. According to Bryant after the game, the Giants had planned to take him out of the game completely, which consisted of constant double and triple-teams from the New York defense. Instead of getting upset about his lack of production, he was simply happy to see the team get the win.

Oh by the way the Giants lost.

That last sentence in the article is the most pertinent.

Doesn't matter how many catches pr yards Dez accumulates as long as the Boys are winning and nobody is needlessly killing team chemistry by pulling a Mike Wallace.

Right on, Dez. Keep up the good work.

And my fantasy TE, Witten, scored 2 TD's.

Mission accomplished

That doesn't last long in the world of football. You have to find a way to produce, statistically, or your next contract will suffer.

If he continues to mature mentally as well he will do great things.

I don't care about Bryant's contract.

I am a Cowboys fan. I care about the Cowboys winning.

Dez can worry about his money. Not my problem.

Hey Wallace! Are you catching any of this?

He will get his catches soon.
