    no its not. when the rules change, then its a different game. its no secret that DBs have been limited in what they can do, to allow the pasisng game to florish, which leads to more scores, which is what the league wanted.

    pure footbalists will watch football and even enjoy a defensive game. you want to lure the fringe football fans, then you need more scoring and in essence that's what the NFL has done.

    Are you talking about the same quarterback who has targeted Dez 33 times this season?

    Only two less targets than Witten with 35.

    Oh and Orton targeted Witten 4 times so that makes Dez Romo's #1 so far.

    It's not a lame excuse the game has changed since Pearson's prime years in the 70's and Irvin's prime years in the early 90's. Pearson entered the league 37 years prior to Dez and Irvin entered the league 22 years prior to Dez. Comparing receivers stats from different era's is very misleading because the NFL is so pass happy now.

    It's the same when comparing QB's numbers from different era's. The NFL is a different game now because of all the rule changes that have helped open up the passing game. You never saw receivers with 100+ catches 30 years ago or 5000 yard passers.

    I am pretty sure if you compare his stats to Calvin Johnson, Cruz, and others they'd be pretty close. Its just because he wears 88 and is a Cowboy that we want to criticize him. Compared to a lot of other first round receivers he has done quite well.

    You have to be kidding. Good lord.

    Dez has been an abject failure and embarassment on multiple levels. As it stands, he is a monumental bust given the kind of impact the team needed in the first round of that draft.

    He doesn't deserve to mentioned with real NFL receivers like Johnson and Cruz.

    I am pretty sure you are wrong. he is not at that level. he has not dominated as yet. maybe a game here or there. but a 4 game stretch? or for a full season.

    Dez has two measly 100-yard games in his career, and one of them was last week, which was one of his worst games to date with three drops and misread that led to a pick-six.

    There's some stats for ya.

    LOL what? Cruz didn't even play in the 2010 season and he has 200 more yards than Dez, 1 less TD, averages over 3 yards per reception more. How many 60+ yard games does Cruz have? 14 Dez? 16. So you are comparing 2.25 seasons from Dez as a starter to 1.25 seasons from Cruz.

    Dez is going to be alright. We haven't seen the best of him yet.

    Still, with all that said... Pearson still has more yards on less catches.

    Keep in mind also he missed a year of football before coming here so he was behind other wr's coming out. He will be fine, FIX THE LINE and get some real coaches and he will be great!

    They'll probably be saying.. "Man, Dez had a great year."

    Unless you expect him to drop 3 passes a game.

    I don't think you can really judge Dez until our offense isn't constantly one dimensional/predictable. Can't really maximize his potential against man coverage or take advantage of play action when no defense respects your run game.

    In the passing games defense, when your offense poses absolutely no threat to move the ball on the ground - defenses have you playing right into their hands in long down and distance situations. Forcing your QB to throw the ball in tight windows, forcing your receivers to routinely see 7 and 8 guys in coverage. Makes everyone's job that much harder with no balance.

    Throw in the penalties and miserable o-line play, it's amazing they're able to move the ball as well as they do.
