Was just reminiscing about the X factor and wanted to post his highlights to remind everyone of his greatness. His light did not shine for as long as we wanted it to, but when he was at his best he was an absolute monster. Think he's doing well after football too which is great to see. Watch, enjoy.

Dez was largely a product of Romo, just like Miles Austin, Laurent Robinson, Patrick Crayton, Sam Hurd, and others.
Dez was an athletic freak before he broke down. He and Romo were great together but he would have dominated in his prime regardless. Jumping over DBs and winning jump balls all day was him not the qb.

All receivers are a product of the quarterback

Romo was perhaps the perfect QB for Dez, and he definitely elevated his game.
But let’s not get it twisted, Dez was several tiers above those other receivers in terms of talent and how high his ceiling was.
Dez was an absolute monster.

Dont discount his talent, how dare you compare him to those guys, he is light years more talented than those others. Romo knew how to use Dez, but Dez was largely a talent on his own.

Then why did he immediately become unusable when Dak arrived?

Yes, he was better than those others I listed, but he was still a product of Romo.

I forgot how good he was once he had the ball.

Unfortunately, one in a long line of talented players whose career wasted under the ownership of the cryptkeeper. And counting. They all deserved better. Will the 30 year rebuilding plan be on schedule...? that remains to be seen.

X factor for what? We didn’t win anything while he was here. Just another thug!

Romo said during a broadcast that Miles Austin was the best WR he ever played with. Austin was very much a more athletic Hines Ward, if it wasn't for the injuries, his route running skills would have kept him in the league for a long while. Sadly, those hamstrings weren't made for ball.

For some reason, I run into Dez a lot around my neighborhood. He's a friendly guy and seems happy.
