PLAYERS: Tony RomoDez Bryant
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo claims that wide receiver Dez Bryant is maturing and has gotten much better since he was a rookie a few years ago. “Dez has come full circle from where he was a couple of years ago,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We go by catches whether or not someone has a good game as fans or as media, sometimes. But when we watch the tape, we go by how he blocked, did he get open? The coverages are going to dictate who’s going to get the ball. But does he run his route right? Is it precise? Is he quick in it? “He’s come 180 degrees, almost full circle where he basically gets to a point where he understands the game. Let’s say he started off doing it 70 percent when he first got here. Then he got to 85. He’s really close to being a guy where it’s 100 percent. You got to go through some things sometimes but he’s a kid that wants it, that works hard, and he’s got a really bright future.” I’m sorry but I completely disagree with Romo, Dez has lacked the focus to be a great receiver since coming into the NFL.  Until I see him stop making boneheaded plays, he’ll be a underachiever to me.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

It turns out...
