FRISCO, Texas -- After every game, the calls grow louder from segments of Dallas Cowboys fans, asking their team to re-sign Dez Bryant.
When Bryant or his route-running coach, David Robinson, puts videos on social media of the three-time Pro Bowl receiver working out, fans yearn for the days of old when Bryant was averaging 91 catches for 1,312 yards and 12 touchdowns from 2012 to 2014.
Those days are gone, and the structure of the Cowboys' offense has changed dramatically from that era, which Bryant acknowledged in a tweet this week.
Don't look at this as a negative.. teams have different schemes https://t.co/yR3toQ5X55
As the Cowboys’ passing offense struggles, the committee of receivers that has been called on to replace Bryant has taken the brunt of the criticism as the absence of Bryant makes Cowboys fans' hearts grow fonder.
What they fail to remember is Bryant was part of last season’s slide into the abyss for the passing game, which has continued in the first five games this season.
