If you need to an avatar to encapsulate the Dallas Cowboys' offensive woes this season, look no further than Big D's franchise wide receiver, Dez Bryant.

Once one of the top receivers in the league, Bryant has yet to eclipse 100 yards in a game this season and is averaging a career-low 10.9 yards per catch. On Thursday, Dez wasn't even targeted in the first half -- he finished with three catches on five targets for 37 yards in the blowout loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

His stats and game tape tell the story of a wideout in decline -- Bryant, 29, is in his eighth season -- but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones sees something else from his marquee receiver.
