Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones told reporters this week that, by his estimation, Dez Bryant’s three-touchdown performance in the 38-27 victory over the Eagles on Sunday night was the best of his young career--and perhaps it was.
But both head coach Jason Garrett and Bryant himself believe he still has a ways to go before he reaches his full potential.
“There is so much room for improvement,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “The way you get better is you come to work every day. It’s important to him. He loves it. And he gets well-coached. He gets coached hard.”
Bryant went to his first career Pro Bowl last year, and with 79 catches, 1,148 yards and 13 touchdowns on the year, certainly looks poised to return in 2014.
“I learn new things and things just become easier by the day,” Bryant said. “It’s almost kind of scary to me just because of the fact of how much I love the game, not only myself, I want my teammates to be great.”
