Hard to tell, looked good in the highlights LOL.... Im thinking 1000 yards 8TDs.
I agree that Blackmon is extremely strong and physical. Reminds me a lot of Anquan Boldin in that regard. But you must not have seen many receivers in your life if he's the most physical you've ever seen.
In other news, Dez has his first catch on the night.
For those for Dez... this is some pretty good evidence:
BTW: It was ruled incomplete...
I'm glad that play happened tonight. That's the type of play I'm talking about. There are intangibles to athleticism that can't be measured. Dez has it more than Blackmon. Again, not taking anything from Blackmon, just part of my opinion in the Dez v. Blackmon debate.
Also, that was ruled incomplete, but it was not reviewed because the entire play was called back for holding. If it was just the catch, I think it would have been ruled complete on review.
Nonsense. Even if you think he landed in bounds (he didn't), it was illegal touching and wasn't going to count.
Blackmon was the better player for OSU. One of the best players we've ever had, at any position period. But you can't roll out measurables to prove he is Dez Bryant's athletic equal. He is not, but few are. You can say he was, at least in college, a better football player. He's a spectacular athlete with great determination and willpower.
I am betting he will be an overall better pro than Dez, but he isn't as good an athlete. Dez does things humans should not be able to do.
This is about as good as the debate can be framed. I agree with pretty much all of it. I still have hope that Dez can get his head right and if it happens, he can be an all time great.
That is unbelievable.
Good summery. I will add that JB has much more the determination and willpower. He is also a bat chit crazy athlete. I think thats somthing we all can agree too.
That may be a little generous, but certainly not out of the question. A.J. Green had 1,057 yards and 7 TD's last season, but it's going to take remarkable improvement from Gabbert for Blackmon to match that.
I don't know about more willpower while dez does seem to be a bit stupid with his decisions sometimes his passion and or willpower to play the game in unrivaled
Logo is in the way, so unable to see if he was even in bounds.
As I describes it: "how the hell did a human just do that????". That's Dez.
Now that you are 'oohing and aahing' over Dez... Present Blackmon:
Feel free to fast-forward to 1:20 if you want...
I'll disagree. This is actually the worst kind of argument because their situations were simply different. Dez was more important to making Zac look good than most give him credit for. He also played in a pass second offense and had a pretty good NFL tight end that he shared catches with, so you can't compare the numbers. If Dez is never on our team who knows what happens? Hell, Larry Fedora may still be a coordinator without Dez making him look good, and I think most of us like where we are now offensively better than where we were with Fedora.
In the post you replied to, i was not comparing the two.
How is that a joke?
I swear, Noven, sometimes you just throw sh*t out there without any backup.
Throw in some logic, reason or balloon animals to prove your point, will ya.
