Dez Bryant Thanks Fan For ‘Dez Caught It’ Comment in Obituary
Dez Bryant couldn't agree more with a comment in a fan's obituary posted last week.
According to 24-7 Sports, Dez bryant is praising the fan that had the mention that "Dez did, in fact, catch the ball" in his obituary about the controversial "no catch" ruling in the 2014 NFC Divisional game against the Green Bay Packers that kept the Cowboys from advancing to the NFC Championship.
In a story I wrote about yesterday, Robert Clyde Drew's obituary mentioned the infamous no-catch, which all Cowboys Fans, including this one, believe was the wrong call.
Dez even posted the obituary on his instagram page with the caption "R.I.P. Robert Clyde Drew.. You are exactly right #dezcaughtit "
But the NFL will never live down that mistake which Drew had written in his obituary.
The NFL even made it worse when Gene Steratore, the official that made the call about the "no catch," ruled in Super Bowl LII this past weekend that Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught a catch for a touchdown in the same form that Dez did and said:
"He caught it. Took three steps to establish himself as a runner. He dove and the ground jarred the ball loose."
Funny, that was exactly what happened to Dez Bryant in 2014, so it is probably a good thing that Drew did not see that play which helped the Cowboys' arch rival Philadelphia Eagles win their first Super Bowl in franchise history.
