07:15 AM ET 10.02 | Yes, Dez Bryant may have been targeted a team-high 36 times this season. But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his son, Stephen, the team's executive vice president, believe Bryant should get more opportunities even when he's covered by more than one defender. "I do think sometimes he's going to win the battle even if he's doubled," Stephen Jones said Monday on KRLD-FM. "He deserves those shots." His father echoed thoughts on Tuesday during his KRLD-FM radio segment. "He can make that catch with two people on him," Jerry Jones said. As for Bryant, he professes he doesn't care about the number of chances he gets each week. "It's not about me," said Bryant, who has made 23 catches for 282 yards and four touchdowns. "We got too much talent on this team. That's the great thing about it. Everybody can make a play."

I think all his surgeries has made him even more delusional. Did he truly believe the way the team is built they would make the playoffs? PLAYOFFS!!!

So, they're giving Romo the green light to throw into double coverage? Is that what they're saying? And next week, they'll throw him under the bus for making bad decisions.

I wonder how many GMs with JJs record (who also don't happen to own the team) would have been fired by now.

Regarding that comment he made about "any of 500 coaches" could coach this team...

Wonder if he would be willing to make the same claim about General Managers?

Maybe JJ and Son should have him over for dinner a few days a week then.
