I'm not even sure he's that good of a talent. People always point to his mental stuff and sure it's a problem... He's like JaVale McGee. More of a physical talent than actual football (or basketball for McGee) talent. He has more problems than what is in his head.
He might be a dumb ass, but he is without question "good"
he was great today, made some really clutch 3rd down catches, and then of course the punt return that won the game...
really anyone that claims he "isn't good" either doesn't watch him play or just hates the Cowboys...one or the other, because he makes amazing plays
Yeah however for every amazing play he makes he makes an equally bad play due to a mental lapse, bad route resulting in a INT, dropped pass, etc. I'm not suggesting he's not a great talent or ineffective and this thread is obviously a gross overreaction but he definitely is overrated to a certain extent. He's had 1 career 100 yard game receiving. For a guy as talented as he is, with a QB as good as Romo thats really disappointing.
He's a great talent but there are a lot of great talents in the league. What seperates you is your work ethic, your preparation, your ability to adjust, to be able to play in weeks later in the season when you get banged up and are not 100%. Other than the talent he's lacking in a lot of other areas.
-first of all, WHO IS RATING HIM HIGH?...in order to be overrated you have to be rated high, no one is dumping him in next to Fitz and Calvin and all that.
-second, it is still early in his career, outside of Randy Moss and couple others no one jumps into the NFL and blows up with 1,500 years right off the bat. This is his 3rd year, and I expect him to have monster games, but it is still early in the career of Dez Bryant.
-third...he was drafted LATE in the first round...should I name off the WRs that were picked higher than him in the last few years that have done less?
