Dez Bryant Is No Vincent Jackson?July 9th, 2013
So you must choose sides for a football team and you’ve got to pick between Dez Bryant and Vincent Jackson. Joe thinks it’s a freakin’ no-brainer that Jackson should be the choice, yet Joe’s pick isn’t the norm.
The gurus at ProFootballTalk.com assembled an esteemed panel of about 40 NFL analysts, including former Bucs Anthony Becht and Shaun King, along with olive oil-lapping, popcorn-munching, coffee-slurping, homeless-mistaken, fried-chicken-eating, oatmeal-loving, circle-jerking, beer-chugging, cricket-watching, scone-loathing, college football-naïve, baseball-box-score-reading Peter King, of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports Fame, to pick the top-100 players in the NFL.
Players ranked 51-75 were released yesterday, and the gang of experts collectively ranked Bryant above Jackson.
54 Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle, Lions
55 Cam Newton, quarterback, Panthers
56 Dez Bryant, receiver, Cowboys
57 Gerald McCoy, defensive tackle, Buccaneers
58 Marshal Yanda, guard, Ravens
59 Roddy White, receiver, Falcons
60 Vincent Jackson, receiver, Buccaneers
Joe is somewhat speechless. Jackson is just a better football player, and he’s no diva.
Joe also sees Ndamukong Suh continues to be a step ahead of Gerald McCoy, just like they were in the 2010 draft. Joe can see both sides of that argument.
