Dez Bryant says he can do anything Megatron can

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had a break out season last year, and an extremely strong finish to the season. Heading into this season, the Cowboys were looking to build upon that success and expand Bryant’s role in the offense. His performance has put him in the discussion of best wide receivers in the league along side Calvin Johnson, but Bryant isn’t comparing himself to anyone.

“Truth be told, I don’t compare myself to nobody,” Bryant said Monday during an appearance on 103.3 FM ESPN in Dallas. “I think Calvin’s the best at what he [does]. I think I’m the best at what I do.”

Bryant praised Johnson’s abilities but wanted to make one thing clear.

“I believe I can do whatever he can do,” Bryant said. “I think it’s just a pride thing. When it comes to football, just being on the field, it’s a mindset and having a mentality. I honestly believe when I’m there, I’ll be feeling like there’s nothing I can’t do. Whatever the coaches ask me to do, I’m going to do it.

“I always feel like there’s more. I think that’s just a mindset you’re supposed to have.”

Johnson has been hurt this season so it is unfair to compare their stats for this season. Johnson missed a game with a knee injury.

    Even though I agree that Dez is having a beast of a year, he cannot do everything that MegaTron can do, which is stay humble and get your job done on the field. The Lion’s offense is built around Calvin Johnson, where as the Cowboy’s offense is built around Tony Romo. When Dez achieves “Optimus Prime” levels (pulling from the Transformers for those that don’t know), only then can his claim of “anything you can do, I can do better” is legit.
