PLAYERS: Dez Bryant
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Jacksonville-jaguars

In an interview with Jarrett Bell of USA Today, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked about Dez Bryant’s off the field problems.  Jones said that Bryant had to show the people around him that he’s serious about changing his life.

“Dez needed to show his constituents that he was serious, and meant business,” said Jones.

Jones was then asked if Bryant would still be a part of the cowboys if they didn’t institute the so-called “Dez Rules.”

“That’s a fair question, but I don’t know the answer,” Jones said. “But let me say this: To be on the Dallas Cowboys, he needed to show that he was serious about altering his lifestyle.”

Dallas Cowboys need to be weary of Leon Washington

When the Dallas Cowboys take on the Seattle Seahawks, there will be a lot of focus on shutting down the Seahawks offense. After a rather vanilla game plan last week vs. Arizona, Dallas will look to take advantage of rookie QB Russell Wilson and force him into mistakes. They will also likely stuff the box full of run stoppers to try and account for Marshawn Lynch. Lynch represents...
