Dez

This is my first try at this, so please be gentle. Never mind the sideline "discussion" in Detroit, I want to discuss the football player. I don't think no one on this team works as hard as Dez Bryant. I am not saying no one on this team works hard, but Dez has shown it as far back as OTAs. I know eyes, and that is where I saw the fire. Don't get me wrong, I also see it in a few other players, but none shines as bright as Dez. We all know football is not everything. Most of these players are the breadwinners for their immediate and extended families. Football is a well-paying job. Winning is relative. If you do your job well, you get paid more whether you win or not. (THIS IS WHY I DON'T LIKE POSTING because some Yahoo is going to make a comment about a quarterback's won/loss record-I know, but a good QB on a bad team can still get paid). Back in the day, a playoff check made a difference. Today it's the new contract. There is no doubt in my mind that every player wants to win. Also there is no doubt in my mind they want to get paid. Many people saw Dez on the sidelines and thought TO. Owens knew the cameras were on him, Dez was oblivious to them. HE JUST DID NOT WANT TO LOSE AGAIN. Whether Dez is considered a fierce competitor or an idiot depends on his team. His teammates rallied around him in the media. Will they rally around him on the field? The only reason I am bringing up the name LeBron James is because everyone on the planet knows him.(THIS IS WHY I DON'T LIKE POSTING-How can you compare Dez to LB, he plays basketball, he's won championships).I just want to make point. James was raked over the coals for not shaking hands after a loss.He had played heart out and the emotion got the best of him. The same happened to Dez. What I seen in Dez's eyes was not selfish but a burning desire to win, not for himself, but for his teammates his coaches and for Us. His life is his motivation. This kid grew up in a Hell most of us could not fathom, and many people would like to send him right back just for a byline. Football saved his life, football is his life.This young man has channeled all his pain and past mistakes into this game.So if he's a little emotional about it, it's fine by me.
