As we continue to post grades for the 2013 Dallas Cowboys we move on this week to the Wide Receivers. Next week we’ll look at the Tight Ends.
Without a doubt the most exciting player in Dallas is WR Dez Bryant. Not only is he electric when he gets the ball in his hands, but he can make more people flip flop than a chef at IHOP flipping pancakes. Remember the ridiculous commentary that compared Justin Blackmon with Bryant? You don’t? Well, here for your reading pleasure is the very commentary courtesy of one of my all time favorite Quarterbacks, Warren Moon. I say that with no sarcasm whatsoever, I truly admire the guy.
“He’s (Blackmon) a beast, isn’t he?” Moon said. “He’s like Dez Bryant with all of his brain cells. He’s a guy that has all those skills that Dez Bryant has, but he’s not the knucklehead that Dez Bryant has turned out to be with Dallas. And a much better route runner than Dez Bryant is, but a very tremendous talent.”
Fast forward from that comment to today. Who is a beast? Who is the better route runner? Who is the better weapon? Who has more skills on the football field? Who is the tremendous talent being talked about in the same breath as Calvin Johnson as the best in the game at the position? Who is the guy with brain cells? Who is the knucklehead?
