Is Dez better in some sets that Meredith or Smith? Of course or we wouldn't have signed him, but remember folks, we didn't sign Calvin Johnson.


So what do you do when you have Thomas, Watson, Bryant, and Kamara all running routes?

Is this a trick question? The same thing you did when Thomas, Watson, Smith, and Kamara are running routes. Did other teams not cover Smith or Meredith, and somehow Drew couldn't find them, and now all of a sudden they will have to cover Bryant?

Come on. I am happy we are trying to win now. I think we will see more of the sets we saw when Graham was here, with Dez in the "Graham" spot would be my guess, and I think he can help us. Meredith doesn't fit our system or he's not as good as we thought and Smith is gonna take some more time to develop so this move makes us better. I think Dez can help in a lot of sets, but as I said earlier, we didn't sign Calvin Johnson.

Re: Dez Bryant Signing With Saints

Bryant is a lot stronger than Smith is; especially in the red zone... Go ahead and throw one on one coverage at him and watch Drew feast on the back shoulder and jump ball throws

You pray to the deity of your choice and prepare for the worst.

I really think people are discounting the talent of Dez Bryant. He won early in his career because of athleticism. He admitted that he needed to focus more on his route tree and all reports said he took all the proper steps to improve it. Hes no slower than Michael Thomas. Thomas gets open because he runs routes. Bryant is more than capable of learning how to run routes in order to create separation.

No we didn't sign CJ but we did someone who's more likely to be a mismatch for a #3 CB or safety than what we have.

And Sean is all about matchups. He'll find a way to get Dez involved when the matchup can be exploited.

Re: Dez Bryant Signing With Saints

I am sure SP had the straight up expectations talk....

When Drew throws your way he throws your way, don't ask for more passes

Anything that has the remote look of locker room cancer, your out

There is no "I" in team and Thomas is the star here

Much of his production with Romo was based on 50/50 jump balls. Brees throws the ball to the open man, and to the man he trusts. So it'll be interesting to see if he and Dez can develop to the point where Brees is willing to either throw Dez open, or throw a 50/50 ball like he used to do with Graham and trust that his guy is the only one to come down with it.

SFIAH
Brees does a better job than most at connecting with receivers who ARENT open. With his accuracy He is a master at throwing into coverage and placing the ball in a tiny space where only his target can get it.

I can't say 100% that he'll come here and dominate. He might be Adrian Peterson 2.0 for all we know. But the chance that he will is enough to tickle my pickle

Re: Dez Bryant Signing With Saints

This is a 3rd down and Red Zone move

The lack of a deal this year may well have adjusted any issues with thinking he's number 1. I like this move
