      I always liked Novacek maybe he can help the kid. At the end of the day, however, no matter how much help or restrictions or advice or counseling or whatever he gets, there is only one person who can change his behavior and that's him. I personally have nothing against the kid. I don't necessacarily feel sorry for him. I have my own problems. BTW, back in the day when LT was playing and had his issues, I didn't feel sorry for him either. I thought he was an idiot off the field (and apparently still is) especially when he dropped out of rehab and decided to "rehab on the golf course". But, like alot of people I was (and still am) in awe of what he did on the field. he was the best defensive player ever (IMO) and no one has come close to doing what he did (on the field). but I was never someone who idolized or looked up to athletes as role models. They're generally (with some exceptions) not the best source of that. My hero was always my dad and even though he's been dead for 7 years he still is.

        Right and I don't think most people have anything against Bryant either. Maybe they have something against the way the media has portrayed him.

        I've seen people with real problems. They'll only change when they want to change like you've said. Bryant doesn't have 'real problems', but he's taking steps toward eliminating the small incidents that get blown out of proportion and getting better on the field. He wants to change-- He's taken that initiative himself, and I don't doubt that these guidelines are part of that. Whether or not he'll stick with it will remain to be seen, but the guy gets no credit. He's also not a bad guy either. He reminds me so much of kids I went to high school with in the same situation but just did not have the talent. Not bad guys-- they just didn't have the direction.

          Blackmon just went to the same school as Bryant. Doesn't have nearly the talent Bryant does and also has 2 DUI's.

          Dez Bryant was arrested once (blown out of proportion) and had a scuffle with an annoying rapper once who was heckling him at a night club.

          Other than that? He had lunch with Deion once and forgot his cleats at his pro-day (this is why he was labeled trouble in the draft by the way).

            the kid has been given a golden opportunity to play in the NFL and at a marque team like the Cowboys. Maybe this will turn a light on in his head and change his attitude and consequently his life and career. If not.....he will just be another wasted talent. I applaud the Cowboys for at least trying to help the kid. Maybe it will work.....and maybe it wont.

              Oh come on man youthink I meant that literally I was just saying what Warren Moon has said but since your a big stats guy, all I hear from Cowboy fans is if he does this and if he does that this guy can be great come on dude really this guy doesn't even have over 1500 yards in two year Cruz had that in one how many times are you guys going to stick up for this ****** bag I'm serious you can find more nfl ready talent out there I would rather start the kid with the dreads on you team. Iknow it was against the Rams but I just don't think Bryant is worth it. Trust me I was so pissed when they cut Plax I thought the Giants should keep giving him chances but it worked out better for the Giants just to get rid of him Trust me Bryant is not worth it.

                    Please. Just because it wasn't a TD (because of a penalty) it still shows you the athletcism.

                    http://www.thescore.com/buzz/article...beast-td-catch

                    There's one that counted. Happy?

                    No, Dez Bryant's production has not matched Cruz's. That's neither here nor there. Bryant's upside is massive, and the results will eventually come.

                      Hey there's nothing wrong with wishful thinking man I still think Bryant is overrated and the #'s back me up if he has another 800 receiving this tell me you still want him there and is he has over 1200 yard this season ( since you guys are so high on him) then I will eat crow. Everyone that is a wr has a highlight reel even jerome simpson has one and look what has happened to him clearly the bengals get the point more then the cowboys do.

                        True, everyone does have a higlight reel. Although with Dez there are many reels. His yardage production was down, but he still scoes TDs. He's a threat anywhere on the field and this entire offseason, he has been busting butt to get even better.

                          Look we can go on forever about this I say this is his "prove it year" the Cowboys made it clear that they are going to back him so well see I hope for your sake he does live up to his hype but to me even if I was a Cowboy fan I wouldn't want him that other kid with the dread looked real good he impressed me a lot all I'm saying.

                            Right, this is a prove it year with Dez. Although I must say, Bryant hasn't been bad but he hasn't lived up to expectations yet either... well, expectations from common fans at least. IMO he's right on track.

                            Still, nonetheless, this year expectations are up there and he's got to live up to them. I think he will, but he will have to prove it for sure.

                              Everyone here sympahized with LT because he needed help
                              For the record I have no sympathy of LT or Dez. Both men have the means to deal with their problems, means that many addicts and troubled individuals don't have. And people can spin either story however they want to because of their love of the teams, but anytime a grown adult needs supervision just to live their life, they aren't really an adult, and that honestly is really sad.

                              Yeah Bryant had a hard life growing up, a lot of football players had hard lives growing up, yet they managed to get their life on track and live as functioning human beings without the need to be babysat by their employer. I understand that Dallas, has an investment to protect here, but honestly this is nothing short of pathetic.

                              Your a grown man start acting it, you shouldn't need someone there watching you telling you not to put you hand in the cookie jar again.

                                Many people, inluding Cowboys fans, share this same sentiment.

                                Personally. I think that's too easy of an answer. It's irresponsible to tell someone to be a man when they don't know how.

                                On a separate note, would it change your opinion if these rules weren't even thought up by the Cowboys, nor are they being enforced by them?
                                Would your opinion change if these rules were recently confirmed as false and embarrassing to Bryant?

                                I thought these rules were odd (Bryant doesn't go to strip clubs and he's not a big drinker) and now there's been confirmation from Jerry that the Cowboys didn't set forth these rules and confirmation from Bryant's advisor that these aren't even the rules that he's set forth for himself.
