Dez Bryant makes his presence felt on the field for a change

We haven’t heard much from wide receiver Dez Bryant lately, since the Cowboys slapped a gag order on him.

But the Giants heard plenty, and reporters heard a little in the wake of last night’s win.

Bryant caught four passes for 85 yards, and talked for about five minutes about football only after the game.

This win was very big,” Bryant said, via Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com. “I felt like we prepared well during training camp and we just got to keep the flow going.”

They’re handling him because of the domestic violence arrest involving his mother from this summer.

But the Giants had no answer for him, as a depleted secondary couldn’t keep the ball out of his hands and stop noted playmaker Kevin Ogletree at the same time.

That gave them a confidence they lacked in past meetings against the Giants, including last year’s playoff-killing, soul-crushing loss in the finale.

“I don’t want to say expect [to win],” Bryant said. “I felt like we prepared well. That’s what we got to do throughout the rest of our games, and we feel like we got a good team and we all got each others back.”

If the Cowboys can keep Bryant on the field and focused, they have the potential to have an explosive offense. But those two things have been a greater challenge than the Giants have been.

    Dude had 9 TD catches in 13 starts last season and 17 total TDs in two years. “For a change”? You can count the other NFCE WR’s that have done that or better over the last two seasons on one finger. Can you guess which finger?

    Dez could have a very good year. I think his presence caused coverage to focus on him opening things up for 3rd WR Kevin Ogletree who had 2 TDs.

    Ha right! Wait until they face a team that actually has a starting caliber DB’s. Witten looked scared to make contact and Romo just looked scared all night.

    So happy the Giants lost :) NY Fans walking around with their noses in the air this offseason (Rightfully so) but this just proves that predictions are just that, uneducated guesses based off of popular opinion.

    Go Cowboys!!!!

    Hahaha leave it to a bitter hater to leave the ignorant post of the day. Romo didn’t look scared he looked in charge and that is exactly what he was in charge. Ogletree will have more games like that and the cowboys tonight set the tone for the season by beating the chumps in their house the night their rings were given lol.

    “noted playmaker Kevin Ogletree”? The guy has been invisible before this game… 25 catches for 280 yards in 3 years.

    Romo looked really scared while throwing 3 tds and 300 yards

    Listen to yourself

    I am not a Jenny Jones fan but Dallas handed them a handful when Romo would scramble and hitting his receivers in da slot. Giants could not defend that either playing in zone. Sorry da G-men were not the G-men I know. Congrats to the Cowgirls for their 1st win this season. My keyboard malfunctioned when I typed “Congrats.”

    I think you missed the sarcasm there bud

    Sure, Romo looked scared to the tune of 300+ yards, >75% completion rate, 3 TDs, and a passer rating of 129.5.

    Looks like a few Giants fans are upset… don’t be mad.

    Your team lost, take it in stride like the 2011 champions you were (tongue out smiley face) !!!

    If this guy keeps his head straight he has the ability to be a top 5 receiver in the NFL. Jets fans can deny it but he was killing Revis last year until he got hurt in that game.

    Romo finally stepped up and beat the Giants, The injuries to key Giant defenders played a huge roll also.

    Romo looked scared? So if Romo passes over 300 yrds, 3 tds, 75% completion and a QB rating of 129.5 when he’s “scared”, then I’m looking forward to when he finally gets comfortable and not “scared”.
