On DallasCowboys.com, the headline read, “NFL East: How Far Ahead Is Dez Of The Other WRs?”
I didn’t know if this was a trick question or an audition for the show “Who Is Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?”
Well if I have to ask that question then maybe I do not know football! I believe my 21 month old daughter can answer this question.
Of course, Dez Bryant is comfortable ahead of the other division receivers. Yes, he has great competition in the division.
But none of them are better than Dez Bryant or requires the double teams!
They don’t come close. Only DeSean Jackson will see a double team. Maybe Victor Cruz.
But the Cowboys shut down Jackson last year or at least held him in check with their awful defense.
Dez Bryant requires constant double teams but he constantly puts up big numbers. And he constantly puts up yards after the catch (YAC).
Only the top five receivers in the NFL can do that. By the way, Dez Bryant is a top five receiver.
Should I mention his individual stats, 93 receptions, 1,233 receiving yards, and 13.3 per catch, 13 TDs, and a Pro Bowl to boot.
Here is the caveat. Bryant was ranked the 25th best player out of the NFL’s top 100 players.
DeSean Jackson was ranked 63rd and Pierre Garcon rank was 80. Victor Cruz, Riley Cooper, and Jeremy Maclin did not make the NFL’s top 100 player’s list.
Do I need to say anymore?
Dez Bryant is best WR in the NFC East.
Now that should have been the headline!
