Champ: Matthew Stafford for his game winning drive and leaving only :12 seconds on the clock. Stafford also had some help from Calvin Johnson who had 329 yards receiving. Chump: Dez Bryant for comparing himself […]
When I saw Dallas owner Jerry Jones enter the Cowboys dressing room on Sunday afternoon, I was geeked that I might have a chance to talk to him.
Sunday’s Lions-Cowboys game was exciting. Not only was there a dramatic, improbable comeback by Detroit to win the game 31-30, but there was also one of the best receivers in the NFL conducting a sideshow on the Cowboys sidelines.
Calvin Johnson himself seemed a little shocked at the numbers he put up Sunday.
Matthew Stafford’s 1-yard lunge over a pile of linemen with 12 seconds left and Calvin Johnson’s 329 yards receiving lifted the Detroit Lions to a 31-30 comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Sometimes, wide receivers and quarterbacks don’t see eye to eye.
“I think a lot of people took it the wrong way,” Bryant said. “Clearly, I said there was no comparison.”
He stands by his refusal to compare, but he also continues to dance around conceding that Johnson is the best.
“I believe I can do whatever he can do,” Bryant said, prompted to list what Johnson can do that Bryant cannot.
It all started when fourth-year Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant apparently would not concede that Detroit Lions superstar Calvin Johnson would be the best target on the field when the teams meet Sunday.
