Dez thinks Cowboys are 'unbeatable,' pros easier

The Cowboys are currently 2-3. They're a tremendous disappointment thus far in 2011, and have some, ahem, trust issues, but, as we talked about on the most recent podcast, Dallas dealt with a tough schedule through the first five games and are just now getting healthy, setting them up as a sleeper to make a run in a wide-open NFC East.

Unless Dez Bryant decides to blow their cover by saying ridiculous things. Like, for instance, that the Cowboys are "unbeatable" and the "pros is much easier" than college football.

"I like to keep my personal goals to myself," Bryant said during a recent interview at the Dallas House of Blues, via the Dallas Morning News. "As far as the team, I like our chances. I feel like, it may sound crazy, I think we are unbeatable."

Yes, the obvious counterargument is that the Cowboys have already lost. Three times. But apparently it doesn't count in the L column if you beat yourself.

"I think the losses, we lost those games ourselves," Bryant continued. "I feel like once we get back in that meeting room and regroup, and we learn from our mistakes, the sky's the limit."

This is very, very true. The Cowboys don't have issues with the people that are on the field for them, insofar as athletic skill and raw talent is concerned. They're fielding a team that's capable -- on paper -- of winning the Super Bowl.


But, as Bryant points out, the Cowboys make silly mistakes. Like giving a Tom Brady and the Pats the ball back with 2:43 left in a game at home and down less than a touchdown. Or like insulting NFL defenses by saying that it's easier to play receiver than in college.

"I really think the pros is much easier," Bryant said. "The reason I say that is because in college I didn't see too much man, too much 1-on-1. I always got double-teamed and a lot of zone coverages. When I see that one-on-one in the league, my eyes get big. I start visualizing what I'm going to do after the play."

OK, real quickly: why is it that people can't delineate between statements that are "team-oriented" and "silly"? Because surely Bryant doesn't think NFL defensive backs are no good, and surely he understands he only gets a ton of one-on-one looks because there are other good receiving options on his team. Surely he gets that. Right?

Look, Bryant was saying these things on an episode of Inside the Huddle, a weekly FSN show which is filmed at the Dallas HoB and co-hosted by Miles Austin and Tashard Choice. It's a relaxed environment in front of Cowboys fans, and no doubt he felt comfortable saying some outlandish things to his teammates. (See for yourself here -- spicy quotes begin at 13:43.)

Additionally, Choice is the one interviewing Bryant. So Bryant didn't look at TMZ, pound his chest and scream "we are UNBEATABLE!" -- he's just telling a teammate in front of a bunch of Cowboys fans (albeit with a camera rolling) that he thinks Dallas is really good.

The problem is those darn cameras. Dez needs to realize that they're usually running whenever he or someone on the Cowboys says anything.

I love Dez! Now if the Cowboys can back it up I'm a happy fan. Otherwise it doesn't matter what he or anyone says. We will see who's hoisting the VL trophy in February. Right now theres a lot of teams that could. Green Bay looks beastly and seems to know how to win in any situation, but that can change. That's why they play the games. A little drama is good.

Hope this don't back fire on his team, i recently recall Vince Young calling the Eagles the drea team, it sure is not lookig like that. As for the Cowboys they have the potential to be a good team not that hard to be better than the Dolphins and Seahawks.

How many hypocrites do we have in here!?


Vince Young says, "Dream Team" and the media and stupid fans run wild with it. It turns into the punchline of every weak and boring joke people can come up with. Dez says his team, which isn't even .500, is "unbeatable" and it's cool.

Until Tony Romo's brain works in pressure situations the cowboys will always be beatable.  Combine that with the fact that maybe 3 or 4 percent of the players you play against in college are good enough for the nfl, and it is clear that Dez might need to go back to the drawing board on these comments.

Will someone please shut up Dez Bryant. 2-3 doesn't equal unbeatable. Looks more like you lost more than you win. Dez just pay your bills and pull up your pants. Running your flap is not working for you. You gte a back up QB this week so don't blow it.

What excactly is the big deal? I think he said that the Cowboys have beat themselves in their losses. You hear that stuff all the time, 40 yrs ago you didn't hear people freakin out if Bradshaw said the Steelers were unbeatable.
The sad thing is the guy hasn't really done diddley in the NFL. Guys like Bryant, Moss and Ocho talk and/or whine more than the work at their craft. Bryant might have the worst conditioning for a starting skill position in the NFL. That's why he should shutup and do some sit-ups.
