PLAYERS: Dez Bryant
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Tim Brown knows a thing or two about pass catching in the NFL. He was a 1987 Heisman trophy winner, 9 time Pro-Bowler, and voted to the NFL 90’s All Decade Team, so when he says you have to take care of the body, he’s referencing Dez Bryant and his physical style of play. Brown was a guest on Fitzsimmons & Durrett on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM and talked about Bryant's style of play may be too reckless. Bryant plays one speed, hard and fast, and his body could eventually break down. Brown says the key to longevity is understanding when to fight for the extra yards, and when to be smart. In 2012, Bryant played with a broken finger that required surgery at the time he injured it, however, risking further damage he played the rest of the season before having any procedures done. Brown thinks Bryant should bring it down a notch, for his own overall health. "They have to talk to him about preserving himself for the full season, man, because they need this kid on the field all the time. But he takes himself out of the game by doing some of the things he does. He's trying to do good. That's the bad thing. I mean, that's the hard thing about this: It's not like he's doing dumb plays. He's trying to make something happen, but sometimes you just have to be a little smarter about how you go about that because you can certainly put yourself in a position that you end up hurting the team instead of helping," Brown said, via ESPNDallas.com. “This guy scares me so much,” Brown said. “I’m just talking about the way he plays the position. It’s like a kamikaze. He is so physical and so out of control at times. The problem with that is that when you’re dealing with a guy who is 6-3, 6-4 who has a pretty large frame, it’s almost impossible to protect this guy if he is not going to protect himself.  You have to figure out, ‘How can I play this game for 16 weeks or 20 weeks or whatever, and be healthy week in and week out.’ Is it possible? Absolutely it’s possible. But I have to smart about when I fight for yards. When it’s one guy fight. When it’s two guys, maybe not. When it’s three guys, man get your butt down.”   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
