    Every single thing about the contracts is superior for Alshon than Dez.

    Stats for Both Players on their contracts:

    AAV:
    Alshon - $13m
    Dez - $16m

    Games in 3 years:
    Alshon - 39
    Dez - 38

    Receptions:
    Alshon - 165
    Dez - 150

    YPG:
    Alshon - 54.4
    Dez - 53.6

    TD per game:
    Alshon - 0.513
    Dez - 0.447

    Playoff Seasons:
    Alshon - 3
    Dez - 1

    On the contrary, I believe I'm the perfect person to comment on this, because these contract situations have an almost perfect comparison. Dez's contract was definitively worse than Alshon's. Cost more for less production, less availability, and less team success.

    Dez last played in a game in 2017.

    Are NFL teams so stupid they can't see what you're suggesting, that Dez would be fine as long as Dak isn't around? :rolleyes:

    Dez shortened his own career. He got by on athleticism rather than precision. Once the athleticism began to wane he had nothing to fall back on.

    You obviously haven't figured out that those videos are choreographed for Bryant to always have 2 steps on the defender. He's never been a good route runner but now he is at least in those videos.

    As long as he isn't playing for Dallas.

    I didn’t say Dez wasn’t washed up now. I’m sure his Achilles injury was devastating . Damaged goods now.

    But we released him cause his production with Dak didn’t measure up to the contract we dished out based on his production with Romo.

    I don't. I sum up his career as leading the league in drops, a problem in the locker room and sidelines, a poor route runner and being a one trick pony who sat in 2018 until after week 9 because the saints finally were desperate enough after losing a couple receivers to injury gave him a shot.

    This article really just says just says "it appears" the NFL believes it was a catch, but I think what the competition committee has actually said is that plays like that "should" be completions, so they made the rule read where they will be completions going forward. I think the media chooses to spin it as if the league said the play was ruled incorrectly by the officials because playing it that way grabs the attention of the reader, but I don't think the NFL ever said that.

    John Mara, the New York Giants owner and a NFL competition committee member, said the league unanimously agreed on a new catch rule and that Dez Bryant’s grab should be ruled a completion in the future.

    It doesn’t change anything from the past, but the controversial play ultimately made NFL officials change its rules.


    https://fanbuzz.com/nfl/dez-bryant-catch/

    “I think where we are unanimous [are] plays like the Dez Bryant play in Green Bay, going to the ground, the Calvin Johnson play from a couple of years ago,” Mara told ESPN. “I think all of us agree that those should be completions. So let’s write the language to make them completions.”

    Imagine how different this era would have looked if that was deemed a catch and we go on to championship game.

    It effects Romo’s career moving forward, Garrett’s and probably Dez too.

    Not to mention fans perception of all.

    Good numbers, I will confess. However, the contract extension with Jeffery came in December of 2017, nearly at the end of that season. So I think that including that year in the comparison is inaccurate. To say nothing of the fact that Roseman screwed up by reworking that deal in 2019 and getting your team in deep with a player that nobody wants there, most of all him. I notice that has yet to be addressed by you.

    I never said he was arrested and he was in legal trouble with the stunt with his mother but JJ helped him through that. I really don't even count that or his yelling on the sidelines as a negative. He was losing focus with drops and routes and DB's were getting into his head. He became more of a liability in the end and the frikin media made him into their circus act on Sundays. It was sad and some of it was self induced esp. later on twitter.

    I would not say he is done with the NFL, someone will need a veteran WR.

    And that's why he's avoiding addressing that key aspect of the argument.

    The truth hurts.

    Gotta love the misinformation. If you heard his "rant" on mic'd up it was far from a rant.

    Especially when they open their mouth without thinking it through.

    For the record I would give him a look. I do think the multiple sideline shows and roasting coaches and players out the door, fair or not, hurt him.

    Oh they definitely stood by that the refs seemingly called it correctly at that time but all agreed now that it would indeed have been a catch.

    You just said he was in trouble on and off the field? Now the infamous back pedal.
