If/when we lose Marshall, I hope we get Dez to replace him. Living in Oklahoma I got to see him play a lot and the dude is a stud. He's not as good as Marshall but he definitely has some skills.

i dont. And thats nothing against Dez. I just dont see the point of replacing a proven young stud with a question mark. Id prefer to use the picks to continue rebuilding the lines and front seven. Teams without great receivers win SB's...teams without great lines dont.

Let's evaluate the logic in this.

We will trade a young proven pro bowl player, for probably a second round pick, because trouble seems to follow him.

We will try and replace him by using our high first round pick on another WR who trouble seems to follow.

In the best case scenario, Dez Bryant becomes the equal of B-Marsh in production.....but there is a decent chance he could be as much of a pain in the ass as B-Marsh is.

Flawed logic....I think Dez Bryant is going to be a heck of a player, but the logic in all of this is flawed.

The things that turned me off Dez are:
-his choice in agent/diva consultant
-seeming unprepared for his pro day (apparently it was like he'd never done a short shuttle before)
-not going all out during his pro day drills
-being seen with Pacman, at all

But I wouldn't call him trouble, and I won't cheer against him because he's been dealt such a brutal hand in life. His mom was 12 (or 13, reports are conflicting) when he was born, and the guy who fathered him was 40 ffs. The fact that he made it to college at all blows me away, especially when you consider that he has a learning disability. I read a good anonymous take on him the other day: "Dez is goofy, but he's not a criminal".

*edit* I can't find the article where I read those ages, hopefully they're right.

I think its all an elaborate plan by McD so that somebody that wants Dez will have to pay a kings ransom for him. I'll be laughing watching it play out!!!!

No way McD would draft Bryant. It's all smoke and mirrors.

This is funny, obviously Peter King has about as much respect for Hosina as we do -

Im not saying we should draft Dez but if we plan to draft Dez Bryant than we better not trade Marshall before the draft, it be better to draft Dez before trading Marshall if we trade Marshall before than we kind of just project our pick to everyone and someone who wants Dez might jump in front of us.

lol Dez Bryant has never had off the field issues with the law, hes a saint compared to Brandon Marshall and hes definitely way smarter than B Marsh.

he was a big 12 2nd team Academic All-American as a sophomore in 2008 so hes not a dumb kid. http://www.big12sports.com/pdf5/3592...B_OEM_ID=10410

And also a rookie is going to get a lot of guaranteed money. Honestly, I would rather give Marshal an 11th pick rookie contract.
