The Prisoners

Oct 14, 2012; Baltimore, MD, USA; Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) fails to catch a pass for a two point conversion as Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams (29) defends in the fourth quarter at M

In the television program, Rick and his crew have taken control of a prison yard as their base of operations. The prison was perfect, a large space, fenced in and easily defensible. One problem with the prison was the inhabitants. Most of the inhabitants of the prison were already “Walkers” which are quickly dispatched and quarantined. There were also prisoners that survived, which is where we compare the show to the football teams. The Cowboys legal issues begin and end with one guy, Dez Bryant. Bryant has had issues with the rules from his college days where he was suspended for an entire season for meeting with Deion Sanders without NCAA clearing. The troubles continued in his rookie season when he and his posse were escorted out of a mall by security. Then this past preseason he was accused of assault and battery. The charges were dropped by the assailant, his own mother. Bryant has another connection to the prisoners from Walking Dead because the leaders of the prison group tried to take down Rick in an attack from the “Walkers.” Bryant has shown, this season, a perpetual ability to undermine his leader, Romo. Whether it is dropping a two point conversion to tie a game, or misreading a hot route resulting in an interception, Bryant has continuously found ways to let the team down in the same way that the prisoners turned on Rick. The Eagles have their own issues with the law, only this comparison is a little more obvious. They have a convicted dog fight promoter who spent time in federal prison as their quarterback. The comparison is just too easy to avoid. Vick has also been blamed for his team’s struggles this season. Vick has turned the ball over every way possible, fumbles and interceptions, usually resulting in points for the other team. The survivors and the football teams have former prisoners hanging around their group and some of those prisoners are plotting against their group trying to make it on their own.
