The bizarre billionaire owner and general manager of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, said on Monday that unhinged wide receiver Dez Bryant needs to remain strong throughout the season and stop fading down the stretch.
“What I want him (Bryant) to do is, and we want to do, is be able to do that all year long, all game long. That hasn’t happened,” said Jones, 69, who controversially purchased “America’s Team” from H.R. “Bum” Bright for $140 million in February 1989. “He’s disappeared at the end of some ballgames, and then we haven’t had him because of injury in the season.”
Jones, who has overseen three Super Bowl championship squads in the “Big D,” claims the 6-foot-2, 218 pound Bryant is performing well and believes the troubled ballplayer can help him get “some glory hole.”
“This season, he’s really in top shape,” said Jones, who, despite character concerns, gambled on Bryant with the 24th selection in the 2010 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State University. “I’m glad to see, it’s exciting to see him make those plays.”
The 23-year-old Bryant, an absolutely menacing physical force who can overwhelm defenders with his strength, size and speed, has never been pinched by the fuzz with anything that sticks.
Still, the former star in Stillwater, who has caught 108 passes for 1,489 yards and 15 touchdowns in 27 games, has a propensity for violence and thuggish behavior and is notorious for missing treatments and skipping team meetings.
Unfortunately for Jones and Cowboys fans, with the exceptions of 2003, 2007 and 2009, Dallas has been an atrocious organization since the late-’90s.
However, Bryant is such an extraordinary talent that, with the proper mindset, he could help will Dallas deep into the month of January.
If Dez Bryant truly dedicates himself to the Cowboys and the sport of football, Jerry Jones could finally again grasp “some glory hole” this winter.by
