Michael Irvin is one of the top three receivers in the history of the game in my opinion. Irvin was strong, tough, vocal, and a born leader.  He worked day in and day out to be the best he could be for the Cowboys. Irvin might be the best wide receiver to wear the #88 in NFL and Cowboys history, but that could all soon change.  Dez Bryant is a beast, and a different type of athlete. Irvin visited the Cowboys this week, and told ESPN Dallas that he wishes he had the talent like Dez Bryant, and went even further, saying he used to pray to have that type of talent. “Not many. Not many in my whole life, period. I ain’t talking about now, I’m talking about in my whole life that had that physical gift, that ability that he has to go up and catch any pass. He can catch any pass. The ability to run by people, the ability to catch a short ball and run around you, through you, however he needs to get there – he has that ability. “He has the ability that when you see him, you go back in your prayer closet and you go, ‘God, why didn’t you give me that?’ Because I’ve said that: ‘God, if only you’d have given me that. Are you serious?’” Irvin was asked if he thought Bryant was more talented than him? “What do you mean? I look at him and say, that’s what I used to pray for. I used to pray for that! I used to pray, ‘Why didn’t you give me this?’ Absolutely! “What I was great at we can teach. We can teach thinking through the game, consistent route running. We can teach [that]. What he has, you can only hope and pray that God has blessed you with it. That’s the difference.”
