Cowboys first round draft pick Dez Bryant has been assigned the number 88.
This has got some Cowboys fans all in a tizzy. "How dare they give him MICHAEL IRVIN'S number!" "He doesn't deserve that number!" "What has he done to earn that number?" "He hasn't proven yet that he has the right to wear that number!"
What these overzealous Cowboys fans need to remember is that some of us felt that same way when they gave DREW PEARSON'S number to Michael Irvin.
Dez has some mighty big shoes to fill, just as Michael did.
Michael turned out OK. I'll bet Dez will too.
