    Rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant showed more of his skills with four catches for 50 yards against Houston. His rawness also showed.

    In the second quarter, Bryant ran a pattern to the outside of cornerback Kareem Jackson instead of breaking to the inside, as coverage dictated. That allowed Jackson to shove Bryant out of bounds, making him ineligible to catch the football. In college, a receiver can return to make a catch when he is pushed out.

    Bryant said he knew the NFL rule.

    "He's learning as he goes," Wade Phillips said.

    Regardless of the raw technique, h showed some incredible physical skills. There was also the matter of a missed PI call. I see so much upside. Hard not to be excited about Dez.

    If that's "raw", I can't wait to see a polished product. This kid is going to be unreal if he stays healthy.

    Starting to more pleased with my choice of a Dez jersey over a Felix jersey. Wanted to get a Felix jersey, but after they drafted Dez, I was undecided. When my friend was at the pro shop, she called and asked which won I wanted. I went with Dez.

    I hope Michael Irvin is reading this because I propose a new reality show for him this offseason. Instead of "4th and Long" it should be titled "1st and Goal" and it should feature the Cowboys young WRs going against the young DBs, effectively as an unoffical traininc camp for the likes of Dez Bryant, AOA, and the other young WRs and DBs on the team. If you want to see these players polished, I say give Michael Irvin, Bill Bates and Coach Joe a crack at them and they'll shine like diamonds.

    it's already exciting watching him. you know he's going to explode soon.

    and what makes it even better is that he's humble. it's so fun to root for guys like romo, witten, austin -- and, now, dez -- instead of having to apologize for boneheads like brandon jacobs, desean jackson or albert haynesworth.

    He has the physical tools. No doubt. Let's hope he also has the mental strength and the discipline to be one of the great ones. I'm hoping the Broddaus(sp?)' report of him not spending the time to learn the playbook while he was injured aren't true.

    It seemed like Romo was not at all afraid to throw it up for Dez to field the ball. If true, that confidence will make us very hard to stop. With Romo able to buy time and Dez able to come down with most contested balls, or drawing a PI call, this offense will be awesome come playoff time.

    Don't forget that Romo went to him on the 4th down play that they converted for a first down. That meant something to me.

    He is a phenomenal talent. It's going to be fun watching him mature and begin to take over.
