The Daily Shoutout: Dez Bryant

Posted on: September 12, 2011 3:10 am
OPENING HIT: The great Dez Bryant. The spectacular Dez Bryant. The foolhardy Dez Bryant. The Dez Bryant that could one day be the best wide receiver in football. The Dez Bryant who sometimes seems like he could burn out tomorrow. It was all there on Sunday night against the Jets.

Bryant had two huge catches against the Jets, one for a spectacular touchdown. But he also ran wrong routes. He worked hard on some plays, jogged a handful of other routes when the ball wasn't going his way.

He was tough and gutsy playing through cramps but he was also stupidly hot-headed. He instigated a series of arguments with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis and Revis responded in kind. But Revis was smarter. He goaded Bryant into shoving him right in front of a game official. The official didn't fall for it but if it that had happened before one of the more gullible officials it could have meant a penalty.

Bryant beat both of the Jets' corners, easily at times, and New York's corners are the best in football. That's how good Bryant is. And he can get better. Just as long as he's smart.

ONE MORE THING...On the Jets. One of the narratives floating about after the Jets game was that New York was lucky to beat Dallas. One aspect about the Jets the team doesn't get credit for is that the Jets make their own luck. They forced Tony Romo into a game-killing interception because of a defensive call they initiated that confused Romo. This is what the Jets do. They force teams into mistakes and they're probably going to keep doing this all the way to the postseason.

Why are the biggest in the NFL always - ALWAYS - wide receivers?!? T.O., Keyshawn, OchoCinco, Crabtree, Plaxico, and so on, and so forth. All divas. All big mouths. All trouble makers. But why this position exponentially more than all the others?

Jets are one of the more overrated teams in the NFL. The Lions would have one last year if it wasnt luck for the Jets and the Cowboys should have won yesterday for same reasons.

Yes but your failing to understand that Romo fumbling at the 1 yardline WAS lucky for the Jets and the Jets didn't MAKE that luck it was Romo's stupidity that made that tournover happen and consequently won the Jets the game! Sure the block punt was on and they made that block happen! And sure they picked off Romo during the Cowboys seemingly game winning drive at the end of the game. But if Romo takes a hook-slide like ALL QB's are supposed to do or simply throws the ball away, the Cowboys could have least gotten a fieldgoal and they would have been trying to run out the clock not throwing a pick there! The Jets were outplayed! Plain and simple! It reminds me of a quote a while back made by the Arizona coach Dennis Green - "they are who we thought they were!" "and we let'em off the hook!" That is exactly what happened here! They couldn't block the Dallas front 4 and they could not stop the Dallas offense at times! I do think that the Dallas play calling leaces alot to be desired and I just hope it don't improve by the time they play the Pats lmao!

I agree with it not being Luck. Plain and simple Dallas DOMINATED NEW YORK for most of the game. Yes it appeared a FG and it was over. Romo made at least 1 bonehead move. If DEZ ran the route wrong well sorry u dont get a pass. Read your defense. I played High School ball and know that. But the fumble going in for the TD is just guts trying to win a game for your team. I would take Romo over Sanchez anyday. because even if Sanchez play 100% no mistakes. He cant touch the ability Romo has even with a mistake.

Well Freeman is confusing me now..I thought it was Romo's fault that the Jets won and that HE made the stupid decision to throw that ball...Now he backtracks and says the Jets "make" their own luck, forcing Romo's mistake. So which is it Freeman? is Romo, as you first claimed, the stat machine that fails miserably whenever the mental pressure takes hold in important situations or is the Jets defense this "make-their-own-luck" reinvention of the saints D two years ago, forcing QBs to make bad decisions because of their great play? 

I dont think you can write an article blasting Romo for failing in the clutch and then write another article, pointing out how lazily parts of the game were played by one of the main receivers, and then adding that the Jets aren't lucky that Romo made the mistake, they forced it...So is it his fault or the defense playing well? It can't be entirely both ways...
