Much has been made over play calling in Dallas this offseason, but for Dez Bryant the playbook and plays are the same, it’s the intensity that is different.
He says offensive coordinator Bill Callahan brings a certain mentality that is more focused than coach Jason Garrett, the former play caller.
“To be honest, it doesn’t feel any different,” Bryant said, via the Dallas Morning News. “It still feels like the same Coach Garrett’s system, and I think that’s really what it is because I’m running the same exact plays and everybody else is, too.
I think the only thing that’s changed is the intensity level he’s been bringing every day in practice.”
Bryant has been a standout at the team’s OTAs and he credits going against cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr for upping his level of play.
“I’m not trying to put any pressure on my boy Mo or my boy B-Carr, but I’m telling you, they’re two of the best cornerbacks in this league,” Bryant said. “And the reason why I get better each and every day is because of them. And I just want y’all to know that and I want them to know that. I think they already know that.”

Over the next several weeks, I want to do what I attempt to do every summer, which is to take a good look back at the previous season.

But, I usually have enough time for that at Training Camp and with the preseason...

Chris Christie once again crossed party lines and probably lost more than a few future New Jersey votes in the wake of his latest switcheroo.
