Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is one of the top wide receivers in the league and as a result he has faced his fair share of double coverage throughout the first month of the season. Often times, double coverage can result in a player being eliminated as a factor, but Bryant’s talent is just too great.
When Bryant sets up and sees double coverage across the line, he doesn’t get too worked up and knows that he just needs to do his part and the offense will work out.
“I’m here to play my part,” Bryant said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing. To me, I always feel like it depends on how the game is going. We try to find our strength. For the most part, we go with what we think is going to work.”
There are also times when Bryant is double-covered, but he doesn’t want quarterback Tony Romo to shy away from his direction.
If Romo takes a risk and tosses the ball in Bryant’s direction, he is confident in knowing that he will still be able to make a play and come down with the ball.
“I’m confident,” Bryant said. “I got to grab the ball, man. I’m going to get it. I honestly feel like I will.”
The Cowboys will need that reliability on Sunday when they take on the undefeated Denver Broncos. If Dallas wants to stand a chance at pulling off the upset, they need to light up the scoreboard and Bryant is their best chance at doing that.
