Jones: Cowboys, Bryant working on him being more impactful late in games

 

Wide receiver Dez Bryant only missed one game last year but everyone knows he was limited throughout the season because of a deep thigh bruise he suffered in the season opener.
Bryant has admitted as much and owner Jerry Jones understands as much.
Still, according to Jones that doesn't fully explain Bryant's penchant for disappearing late in games. Whether it was because of a lack of conditioning or lack of concentration, Jones said those are things Bryant and the Cowboys are working on this offseason because he needs to be a factor when it matters most late in games.
“Well, I know that he did deal with that throughout the year," Jones said of the thigh bruise. "I don’t know that it impacted some of the things that he needs to work on, and we need to work on as a coaching staff, to get him the ball and get him into plays. When he would lose concentration in the last part of the game, I don’t know if that was because of conditioning. I suspect it could’ve been. That’s not be critical, but I suspect that, rather the injury had anything to do with that or not, those are the things that we’re working on so he can be more impactful in the latter part of the game and we can do the kinds of things we need to do to get him the ball. Now, Miles Austin being out there is going to help that tremendously.”

Not you have to articles was so good, later to focus on.

Actually sir, maybe you need to get over the fact that everyone is both entitled to and has a right to express his or her own opinion....

A good manager empowers his staff to do the respective jobs without stepping all over them.

This team needs one voice speaking on matters of coaching and that would be Jason Garrett. They often contradict each other publicly and create the impression that this ship is truly without a rudder.

Jerry is the General Manager. He manages the team in all aspects. You guys need to get over it and get your head in the ball game.

Excellent site ... L'homme et les produits frais ... que, pour la grande poste ... maintenir sur le détachement cet article ... Ressources, comme il est mentionné ici est très utile pour moi! Je suis un lien vers cette page sur mon blog. Je suis sûr que mes visiteurs à trouver utile.

Jerry is saying what I've been saying for the last two years. In not so many words Jerry had a coachspeak moment. He said one thing. But what he meant to say was Garrett has to do a better job of putting Dez in the best position to succeed and Romo has to get this guy the ball more. There's nothing wrong with Dez that Garrett AND Romo can't rectify. Get this guy the ball!! Even Jerry is saying this. And you guys and gals thought I was making all this up!...lol.

" Jones said of the thigh bruise. "I don’t know that it impacted some of the things that he needs to work on, and we need to work on as a coaching staff..."

Jerry, you ARE NOT a part of the 'coaching staff'. Please stop commenting on coaching matters and let your Head Coach be the 'voice'. Your voice does not belong here.

Jerry Jones is already making headcoaching decisions?
