Dallas Cowboys’ Dez Bryant says his “time’s coming”

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant didn’t have quite the season opener he had dreamed off. Against the New York Giants, who doubled teamed him frequently, he caught only 4 passes for 22 yards. His longest reception was 7 yards.

In an emotionally charged win over the New York Giants, who had never lost in the Cowboys’ new stadium before Sunday, the offense was carried by receiver Miles Austin and tight end Jason Witten.

“I promise you, my time’s coming,” Bryant said, via ESPN Dallas. “When it comes, I’m going to take advantage of it.”

Some might have said that time was the second half of the 2012 season when he burst onto the scene. In that final 8 game stretch he caught 50 passes for 879 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Nevertheless Dez Bryant can’t continually blame poor performances on double coverage. That is the kind of attention you get following a season like he had in 2012. Double coverage is just a part of his future as an NFL player.

“That’s the world he’s going to live in for the rest of his career,” head coach Jason Garrett said.

“I have to execute,” Bryant said. “I have to get open and see where it goes.”

Bryant should be somewhat used to beating double coverages, he drew a lot in college.
