    Has Dez Braynt finally turned the corner? Can we expect Pro Bowl seasons for the next 3-5 years?
    Too many good WRs in the NFC -- Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Victor Cruz, Larry Fitzgerald, Crabtree, Roddy White and Julio Jones -- to make that kind of pronouncement. Turned the corner? Yes, he did that in 2012. He's clearly their best offensive weapon. Perennial Pro Bowl pick? That's too hard.

    Greetings Tim - Are there any players coming back from the injured list who you think will make the team and perhaps solve some of the Cowboys' depth problems this season?
    Yeah. A guy named Sean Lee.

    Sorry Timmy. You sound like you're itchin' for a job with Espn with garbage statements like that. Dez has the opportunity and ability to be a lot better than Crabtree, B. Marshall, and Cruz.

    The mindset seems to be there for Dez. Not good for the rest of the NFL.

    Crabtree finally got recognized this season after how many years in the league?

    He already has a job on ESPN. I think he's a regular on Around the Horn...or at least he used to be.

    Dez showed this year he can play just as good as all but two those guys. Because I am pretty sure he was close in stats with everyone but Marshall and Megatron.

    Pretty much a popularity contest. Hating on the Cowboys seems more prevalent than ever.

    Give me a break Cowlishaw. I would take Dez over ANY of those receivers except Johnson of course. Besides we all know that the Pro Bowl is a complete joke. So much anti-cowboys bias, it aint even funny

    Dez grew up this past season. The thing with his mom interrupted the first part of the season, IMO.

    But, when that was worked out, he looked like he needs to wear #88. Broken finger and all.

    He's not far off. There are a lot of really good WRs so some are going to be left out. Similar to QBs. In the NFC, Dez and Romo are likely going to be snubs at their positions. Even as other players drop out.

    Irvin was chosen to 5 probowls and his contemporaries were better than the names Cowlishaw just mentioned. It's all up to Dez, he has all the talent in the world.

    If Dez continues to grow and continues to lock in and keep his head right the sky is the limit for this kid. If he continues to do what he did last year he'll pass by all those names that were mentioned except Calvin Johnson.

    Other than Megatron I don't think there was a name on that list that Dez can't be as good as or better.

    I'm sorry not to sound like a homer but I take Dez over Cruz. Cruz has the luxuary of playing in the slot most of the time. As Roddy White said, "The big boys play on the outside."

    What absolutely makes me laugh is the rush to judgment that Cowlishaw was saying those guys were better.

    Okay, now get over your Cowboy homerism and look at what he did say.

    There are a LOT of good receivers in the NFC and because of that fact it will be more difficult for Dez.

    Not that Dez won't hang up great numbers, but the cadre of receivers is diluted with so many that can be big players for a season.

    It's just amazing how you guys start to cry over a point he was not making.

    I don't think he was putting him ahead Dez. I think he's just saying that, with that much talent, it's hard to say he'll be among the best 3-5 players every single season, especially if he misses any amount of time during a season.

    The good thing is this. Whether he makes it or not, IF this message board is arguint that he got robbed then that means he did his job for the cowboys. Whether he makes it or not doesnt really matter.

    Rein in them horses. If the measuring stick is this message board's angst signaling he had a good year, that is more than a little thin.

    Just read the replies by people from this board railing on the author because they misunderstood the point he was making.
