Dez Bryant has come full circle, and many are expecting him to have a season for the ages. One man who is extremely confident in Bryant, Michael Irvin, knows a lot about the expectations placed on the No. 88 for the Dallas Cowboys. Irvin truly believes Bryant is destined for greatness, and said Wednesday on “NFL GameDay Season Preview” that Bryant will take the league’s Most Valuable Player honors in 2013. “I’m telling you, man you gotta see this dude now, this dude understands football,” Irvin said with his usual flair. “I gotta say it, I never thought he had the capability of understanding the game the way he understands it.” Bryant will have a monster year, but Tony Romo will win MVP before Bryant.  No wide receiver has ever won MVP, and if the Cowboys have the season I expect them to, then MVP will go to Romo.
