Dallas Cowboys Must Utilize Dez Bryant

Andrew Weber USA TODAY SPORTS

Dez Bryant is the Dallas Cowboys best option at wide receiver. Tony Romo and the rest of the Cowboys’ offense must find a way for the superstar receiver to get the ball more often. Bryant’s last 100 yard receiving game came at the then struggling Philadelphia Eagles. Over the past three games, Bryant has had a declining number of receptions. Despite his touchdown against the Chicago Bears, two receptions for the receiver people were at one time this season considering as the, “best” in the league is not going to cut it for Bryant and the Cowboys.

Things in the NFL can change in a hurry and they have for Bryant.

It’s been a tale of two seasons for the Cowboys eccentric receiver. Bryant has gone from being an absolute nightmare for defensive coordinators to barely being in the Cowboys game plan. With the way offensive coordinator B ill Callahan is utilizing Bryant, he’s become a ghost on the field at times and the game against the Bears is a prime example. With the Cowboys’ defense unable to consistently stay healthy or get stops, it is up to the offense to win the remaining three games and sneak into the playoffs. Bryant can dominate a game when given the chance, and he has proven this during several games this year. Whether it be a quick wide receiver screen or returning punts, anytime the ball is in Bryant’s hands good things happen for the Cowboys.

With the defensive problems that the Cowboys have, the offense is going to have to carry the team going forward. DeMarcus Ware is still not quite himself, Sean Lee is battling a number of injuries, and the secondary continues to let receivers get behind them on a regular basis. Without Bryant producing at a very high level a yet another once promising Cowboys season is destined to be washed away. Bryant and the Cowboys’ offense must step up and lead the Cowboys going forward or it is going to be yet another disappointing Cowboyless postseason for Cowboys fans.
