Mailbag: Tony Romo's Impact On Dez's Career?

Since no one has picked Dez up yet after a down year, I was wondering if anyone has thought that it was Tony that made Dez a better player?

- GREG JOHNSON / MARIETTA, OH

Bryan: There is no question that Tony Romo not only made Dez Bryant a better player but Jason Witten, DeMarco Murray and Miles Austin, as well. One of Romo's single most impressive traits was his ability to bring out the best in his teammates through his own play. Those 8-8 teams that lacked enough talent could have easily been 5 or 6 win clubs if not for Romo at quarterback. He made every one better, including Jason Garrett. 

David: There's no doubt in my mind that Romo made Dez better, and that's not a knock on Dak Prescott. The two played a different style of quarterback, which makes sense given that they were on opposite ends of their careers. Dez probably needs a quarterback with a bit more veteran savvy and a bit more pinpoint accuracy. That's why I'd love to see him get a chance to play with an Aaron Rodgers or a Drew Brees.

What's your gut telling you on these wide receivers? Will the ones who play during the regular season come from this group or is a late pickup or trade likely?

- JEFF PARSONS / AMARILLO, TX

Bryan:They will ride with this group until proven wrong. If they have success it was a bold move. If they fail, we're likely to see a new coaching staff and the front office making plans in the draft to correct the problem. I am leaning on giving this group a chance especially with Michael Gallup competing for a starting spot. 

David:Barring injury, this is going to be the group. The Cowboys are sky high on these guys, and it's going to be fun to see if they're right or wrong.
