Dez Bryant Says He’s On The Same Level as Calvin Johnson
Physically, it is all there for Dez Bryant.
Still has some mental breakdowns, occasional drops and emotional outbursts, but from a sheer talent perspective, I don’t disagree with him.
“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 said Johnson’s run-after-catch ability and the way he attacks the ball in the air are especially impressive. However, asked what Johnson could do that he couldn’t, Bryant paused for several seconds before answering.
“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.
Dez is up there with the elite wide receivers in the NFL and he’s right, you want to have the mentality of being the best. He has the talent to be not just one of the best receivers, but best players in the NFL, if he just keeps his head on straight.
