Dez Bryant endorses tweet saying Cowboys owner Jerry Jones allowed Jason Garrett to waste his prime
It’s safe to say Dallas Cowboys nation isn’t too happy with America’s Team.
The natural scapegoat of the struggle: the head coach.
Long before the season started, much of the Cowboys’ fanbase had called for head coach Jason Garrett’s head. Many reasoned great players wasting their prime under Garrett.
Dez Bryant — one of those presumed players — would have to agree. In response to a list of talented players to not win in Dallas list, Bryant said:
I’m keeping it all the way 100000 right now.. you knew this very early in my career… I’m sorry I’m just stating facts … I know exactly what football is and I know how it suppose to be played… CJ you kinda crushed me with this one because you spoke a fact https://t.co/jmOZn8FTdF

The Tweet Bryant agrees with does not just cover Garrett. The Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones gets a spot on it too, mainly in part because he has failed to fire Garrett despite winning two playoff games since taking over in 2010 (as the interim head coach).
A premier talent for much of Garrett’s tenure in Dallas, Bryant was a dominant force for the Cowboys between 2011 and 2017. In that span, he played in 113 games, tallying 531 receptions for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns in the process.
Despite his dominance as one of the best boundary receivers of the 2010s, Bryant failed to get close to sniffing the Super Bowl in Dallas. Ultimately, they released him in 2018 and have not looked back. Now, Bryant is without a team (after tearing his Achilles), the Cowboys are on the verge of missing the playoffs altogether despite considerable hype in the offseason.
