More Long Term Success? AJ Green or Dez Bryant?
 
I assume the majority is going to say AJ Green. Anyone think differently? :confused:

If he keeps on maturing and keeps his head on straight Dez could become the second best WR in the NFL behind Calvin

I'd say its a toss up really

TheBurg 01-09-2013 09:37 PM

I think Dez is extremely physically talented, like Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald. I do think there is a tier above that, which is where AJ Green is chilling. Meanwhile, Calvin Johnson is in his Penthouse Jacuzzi.
That's my evaluation talent-wise, and AJ has his head screwed on better in the first place.

Dez for sure - AJ still has problems catching the ball.

pierrethomasfan 01-09-2013 09:38 PM

Yea that's a close one

Dez doesn't? Asdfgjhgdkgjgr

yankeesfan24 01-09-2013 09:40 PM

card value, Dez will always be above AJ because of the market he plays in

I think Romo is the better QB right now... *takes cover*

Seriously though, one of a WRs biggest benefit is their QB and I don't think Dalton is even close to Romo. Romo might be a choker, but he puts up pretty good stats consistently.

Both AJ and Dez are beastly, but Dalton will need to keep getting better.

TheFrenzy 01-09-2013 10:32 PM

Well, given that Romo is the ultimate tease and is in his contract year, that means the Cowboys will make it to the Super Bowl, lose, Romo will the big contract, and Cowboys fans will be stuck with mediocrity for 5 more years.

So given that, I'd Dez will peak higher hobby-wise and then fade, but Green has more potential to build a HOF career with sustained success.

Is this a serious post?

ccrab1984 01-10-2013 12:21 AM

Green all day!!! In the playoff game against the ravens the o didnt start moving until aj green was targeted

The Madbacker 01-10-2013 12:26 AM

Romo is the better QB, Dez is the better receiver.

FreeMan12406 01-10-2013 12:50 AM

If his mental stability and football IQ don't catch up with his talent and athleticism, Dez Bryant won't make it but a couple more years.

do you watch football? Dez has the best hands in the NFL

chrismiller81 01-10-2013 04:34 AM

Hecks no Aj green is a super stud with a good head on his shoulders.

But if it does, he's going to be dominant

barberromo2008 01-10-2013 05:50 AM

I would say Dez because of who is playing behind the center. Think of how Jerry Rice had Montana and Young throwing to him, Moss and Brady, Harrison and Peyton, etc. Yes, AJ is a solid player, however Dalton may not be the answer, just like Romo is hopefully not the long term answer for the Cowboys.

[QUOTE=hugh;3994729]do you watch football? Dez has the best hands in the NFL[/QUOTE]

Except when he doesn't. Dez is very similar to Terrell Owens - he makes great, big plays, but he will sometimes drop passes a high schooler would be capable of catching. He makes enough spectacular catches to make you forget his higher drop rate.

My nickname for him earlier this season was F***face McStonehands.

deltapi1049 01-10-2013 10:25 AM

Dez Bryant could have 3/4s the career of AJ Green and still be worth more. Cincy is a black hole of hobby collecting.

That being said, most WRs are barely worth anything after their RC, so there's that.

as well as any modern day RB once they hit 30. However the answer to the question of the thread I would say Dez. I think he will always be surrounded with more talent.

Ray27Ray52 01-10-2013 11:22 AM

Am I in some sort of parallel universe where an inferior receiver is considered to be better than another? I just can't quite comprehend how anyone could think Dez Bryant can touch AJ Green. I took the liberty of looking up each of their stats.

Dez 41 games 200 catches 2871 yards 27 TD's
AJ 31 games 162 catches 2407 yards 18 TD's

AJ trails Dez in every category however Dez has played in 10 more games then AJ. I don't think it's that far of a reach to say that AJ would surpass Dez in every category except for possibly TD's if they played the same amount of games.

guru 01-10-2013 11:25 AM

A.J. Green is a better WR, and will be better going forward.

Dez has too many off the field issues to over come for my taste.

Clarka3 01-10-2013 11:47 AM

both are good players when they're on and have a QB that's on their game as well.

Dez has the better frame and height and AJ has the better speed and hands. both will be good if they can keep everything together and their teams don't implode around them. Right now, slight edge to Green because he has a lack of off-field issues.

Lets go off just this year then, when Dez seemed to get his act together and clicked with Romo.

Green's stats
97 Receptions 1350 Yards 11 TDs
Dez's stats
92 Receptions 1382 Yards 12 TDs.

Throw in that stats wise Dez was the best WR in the game during the 2nd half of the year not named Megatron. They are both freakishly good. Assuming all of his issues are out of the way I'd probably take Dez though.
