View Full Version : Dez Bryant learning disability

According to draftcountdown.com Dez Bryant has a "learning disability" just like Ted Ginn. Im so tired of hearing this, a "learning disability" is just a nice way to say they arent the brightest light in the hall. I know some of you will try to defend both of them but being unable to learn quickly is kinda like the general consensus of calling someone "a little slow"

According to this "learning disability" theory, does it mean there are no dumb people in the world? only people with "learning disabilities"?

If he does have a learning disability (by the way Frank Gore has a learning disability), which at this point is unproven, and he made the Big 12 2nd Academic All-American team that shows some serious work ethic.

This rumor just debunks the lack of work ethic for Bryant IMO.

So now he has a learning disability. What will it be next week, he blew off one of his thumbs playing with fireworks?

You don't have a learning disability. But, you're pretty dumb if you think that being dumb and having a learning disability are one in the same.

Early in high school during his freshman year, after the hellish way he grew up, he was considered to have a learning disability and he was put in special classes. He busted his *** working his way out of those classes, passed his SATs on first try, and has since become 2nd team Academic All American.

There are people criticizing him that are a lot dumber than Dez Bryant.

I'm more concerned about him running 4.6 forties than his academic issues or his abilities to articulate his thoughts.

Not that the little things can't add up, but the speed issue and being a top 15 draft pick don't jive well with me. He is only 6'1.5". He just isn't that special of a prospect.

If he was 6'3" 230 and ran a 4.40, then ya; you could just throw those little issues away, but, he isn't, and he doesn't.

He struggled in school his whole life. If he knew he had a "learning disability" then he should have known to work harder and study more. He lacks intelligence, hows that NOT make him dumb? I bet he doesnt have a "learning disabilty" at all, its probably just a cover up for his poor grammar.

Anyways, why do people accept the "learning disability" and are fine with it? but deny he is dumb? They are both negative

Sorry man, but if you ever played sports in college its pretty much a given you get the grade if you make the team. Of course no player, school, or coach would ever admit to that though.

I did play in college and I had to earn what I got. Maybe it was because it was a small college and not a big program....either way, you're not "given" a 3.0 GPA just cause you're on the team or else everyone would make Academic All-American.

Maybe people don't understand what a learning disability is. Let's take Dyslexia which effects the minds ability to put words/letters in the proper order. It does not effect a persons ability to retain information, it does not effect the persons ability to think and reason, nor does it effect a persons ability to react quickly to situations. It only effects the way they learn.

2nd team Academic? That doesnt really mean anything because hes probably taking easy useless & pointless classes. and thats obvious because hes not graduating. (like most athletes)

If you dont think hes dumb than you must think Forest Gump was a genius. Have you heard the man talk? have you heard/read what players/coaches/scouts say about him? they all say he lacks intelligence.

None of us personally know Mr. Bryant
but all the facts and stories from what we've heard or seen point to dez bryant being a little slow. its hard to find something positive about his intelligence. So I dont understand why you think he isnt dumb

Well you cant really fail a SAT, its not even mandatory. Im guessing since Dez Bryant was in special classes growing up he probably took a "special SAT" I dismiss the 3.0 GPA because like zounds said, those grades are pretty much given to those athletes. plus hes probably taking stupid classes like basket weaving of something, I mean its not like he was planning on getting a bachelor degree. if he had a degree or took honor classes or something then we wouldnt even be having this discussion.

HE DID BUST HIS *** IN SCHOOL....

He had over a 3.0 GPA in college, thats better and more dedication than me and most anyone else who enters college shows...

Most people who enroll in college don't have a 3.0 or better and most don't graduate either.

Yeah, you can. When it comes to admissions standards and getting into the school he intends to go to, they do have minimums and he passed them.

Ignorance of the highest order. There isn't even any such thing.

What is/was your GPA, field of study, and work history to suggest that you know anything about educating people, learning disabilities, and measures of intelligence?

To talk out of your *** about a subject in which you are not qualified is much "dumber" than having trouble with public speaking or having a learning disability.


If you're an educator who specializes in students with special needs and/or disabilities then I stand corrected.

Most big schools require a 3.0 in order to maintain your scholarship, even if you have a full ride on sports - you still have to have a good GPA. Ive seen it first hand - players getting free grades and personal "tutors". I'm not saying this happened to Dez, he could be legit, but its pretty ignorant to say that all these athletes earn thier grades. You can throw around "Dez is smart because he made Academic All-American", but we all know that holds no weight. I honestly dont really care about his leaning disablility, but you cant say the guy is smart.

1. Yes you can fail by getting lower than the NCAA or institutions minimum score and YES absolutely some colleges require the SAT.

2. Yes you are guessing, you can stop right there.

3. Yes you are still guessing....u don't have anything to back up any of your statements.

Charlie Brown, it's fairly obvious you're not a Dez Bryant fan. That's fine, I have posted plenty of doubts about him as well but this may be the weakest argument on the board.

You want evidence of his intelligence. How about this, you show me evidence where his supposed lack of intelligence has effected his play on the field. Prove to me that him being "dumb" causes him to be a bad player and not the best WR talent in the draft (I think most will agree he's the best WR talent in the draft).

As ignorant as it is to say that all these athletes earn their grades with no proof, its equally as ignorant, maybe even worse as it is basically slander, to say that they where handed their grades without any information to back it up.

Actually most schools require a 2.5 GPA. NCAA requires 2.0 to remain eligible. The 2.5 gives them a buffer.

NCAA requirements:


GPA requirement is based on minimum GPA required for graduation.

If minimum GPA is 2.0, then the following standards are required prior to the noted terms:
 Prior to third semester or fourth quarter: 1.8 GPA.
 Prior to fifth semester or seventh quarter: 1.9 GPA.
 Prior to seventh semester or tenth quarter: 2.0 GPA.
 Once student-athlete is responsible for meeting a specific GPA, he/she must meet that same GPA requirement each term until the next benchmark is reached.

he may be taking classes like basket weaving but all the colleges i know also require you to take core classes along with your major. i was an art major but had to take classes like algebra I, statistics, civics, astronomy, human biology, history, etc.....

i don't know about oklahoma state but here in california there is a minimum score on the sat that you need in order to qualify for college. while not the toughest test in the world, you do need some amount of intelligence to pass.

i will give you that he does sound a little slow in interviews but that is not always the true indication of one's intelligence. and if he is a little slow, his 3.0 shows a true work ethic to overcome any deficits he might have.

also, his football iq might be ski high. sometimes people can be smart in some areas while be dumb in others. the brain is a strange thing. like the 4.0 harvard grad who has no common sense versus the street wise kid who can't spell.

Accoring to http://www.sportsuntapped.com/

Welcome to the bigs, kid. Oklahoma State wide receiver and projected first-round pick Dez Bryant has grown tired of the constant criticism being hurled in his direction. After Tuesday’s pro day, in which he forgot the cleats he was supposed to wear, Bryant’s anger came to a head:

“I haven’t did anything wrong to nobody.”

After reading this, an undisclosed source known for being in the know, noted Dez’s sly wit and intelligence. The source also noted Dez’s ease with semantic interplay and was quick to point out – “nobody ain’t somebody!”

Alas it has been determined not doing “anything” to “nobody” is not equivalent to doing “something” to “somebody.”

04-01-2010, 02:19 PM
who's to say whether or not Dez is smart? I'm a college student who transferred from a D-III to D-II school so i have no real knowledge on how athletes are treated at DI. but at the D-III and II levels teams have "study halls", a set time during the week in which they meet as a team and help each other with homework, tutor, get work done. also i know that teachers do help athletes out but not in an extreme way. they may move a c- to a b- if the athlete needs to make the grade to play in a game.

also, if 3.0 was needed to maintain scholarship, we would see alot more DI talents falling through the cracks. Lets be honest, schools have minimum SAT scores, but they are not the be-all, end-all when getting into school. Athletes get the special treatment in this case. Coaches and, in some cases, AD's have a say in who they would like to have at their school.

2.0 is the minimum to maintain. anything lower than that is considered academic probation?(correct me if i am wrong). 3.0 is a B average. if dez did have a 'learning disability' in HS, and maintained a B average in college regardless of class, WHILE maintaining the FULL TIME job of college athlete, props to him.

Then wouldnt hundreds of others make the 2nd team all academic or w.e. if they are all given the grade? I know what goes on, not denying it, but you cant just assume thats the case with Dez.

My apologies for the long reply but I just wanted to clear up a few misconceptions and give my own two cents.

It is possible that he got unlimited amount of time on his SAT's. Students with special classes can get unlimited time on the SAT, ACT, state tests, and regular assignments. This counts for both college and high school. So its also possible he had unlimited time to finish his college courses. Their is no passing score on the SAT so he didn't necessarily pass. Getting a 3.0 is quite easy. I've seeen idiots with 4.0's. It isn't miraculous. Anybody can read of a book and write what they read. Not many people bother to remember what they read though.

A learning disability doesn't make someone stupid. If I cut my ear off am I deaf? Being stupid is having the potential to be smart but not doing it because of whatever reason. Being retarded is not having the potential to be smart. We don't know what type of disability he had and their are many smart people who have learning disabilities. Usually, but not always, these people learn another way then what is "normal."

Their are many easy majors out their and many football players are encouraged to take them so they can focus on football. Cores are not always difficult and many colleges also segregate their football players from regular classes.

All of this can point to him being stupid but we honestly have no clue about his academics. I think he is just another thug that likes to talk a certain way. It does not have anything to do with playing football but may cause problems in his character. Something I hated in his interview was when he said that character has nothing to do with playing football. That to me is clearly stupid but everybody has those moments I suppose.

My way of seeing it is he took special classes in high school and did well enough on his SAT without the extra time and then got out and took an easy major like most of the other football players. He ain't smart but he isn't stupid.

As for if I think this can harm his chances of being selected? No way. Unless he is mentally retarded then he shouldn't have a problem in the NFL. The only thing that can harm his chances is saying crud like owners shouldn't consider character when drafting someone.

According to draftcountdown.com Dez Bryant has a "learning disability" just like Ted Ginn. Im so tired of hearing this, a "learning disability" is just a nice way to say they arent the brightest light in the hall. I know some of you will try to defend both of them but being unable to learn quickly is kinda like the general consensus of calling someone "a little slow"

According to this "learning disability" theory, does it mean there are no dumb people in the world? only people with "learning disabilities"?

That's not fair, Ted Ginn is borderline retarded, and by all accounts it seems that Dez has done well academically. Is he Myron Rolle? Hell no, but the again find me another football player who is?

Dez has plenty of other red flags that raise concerns.

Well, I don't believe it is a learning disability at all. Only 'true' learning disabilities are going to be in kids with down syndrome and 'physically' handicap children. In these 'so-called' dumb or slow people, its not that at all.

When someone is 'distracted' by life's problems or under 'unusual' stress that the 'normal' kid isn't usually under in this society, that will reflect on what many will mistakenly call 'learning disabilities'. Test scores will be low or assignments won't be done...etc.

Then, you also have those who are socially popular and become disinterested in the 'boring' studies and become preoccupied with the fun of social life that they can also be mistakened for having a 'learning disability'.

Of course, you also have those who are lazy and like the 'easy' stuff and become preoccupied with video games, tv, SPORTS, etc...which Dez Bryant could fall in.

But another not too obvious part that will and I believe very commonly skews data. And that is a 'strong willed person' of a 'different culture' than the kind our public schools promote. Which I believe can very well be what Dez Bryant is in.

In America there are many sub-cultures within the culture that many who only grow up in a school system and not too aware of the culture differences around them may not know anything about.

In these cultures, like any, there are 'weak willed' people and 'strong willed' people. A weak-willed person can easily be transformed and become conformed to a different culture being promoted by the school system. But when one is a strong-willed person then he/she will find it much harder to adapt, change, and be reprogrammed, if you will, into being transformed. Those people can find it unwilling to change likes and dislikes and find it harder to find interest in the way the school system teaches and not study as much or so forth.

Outside of down syndrome and physical handicaps, I really don't believe the hype that the industry of the modern western psychiatry labels everything. Especially when mental issues outside of physical problems are debated every day among experts anyways. JMO.:rimshot:

d_yankee,

You should study the human brain more. There are lots of things that can go wrong in the brain that can cause learning disabilities. Electrical impulses can be short-circuited or overloaded, chemicals can be lacking or too prevalent. It's never a case of either the brain works or it doesn't.

You should try to be a little more empathetic & knowledgeable.

he definately has bad grammar and doesnt sound smart when he talks but who the hell knows. Ive only seen him in interviews and it sounded like he was trying to process his thoughts after being asked questions (about the suspension) and they werent coming out of his mouth very well, but at least he was thinking about what he was saying...i guess...

Well, if you actually read my post you would had known that I said 'other than physical handicap...'. Should actually try to read the post and be knowledgeable before making unfounded statements.

Those electrical impulses you mentioned react to our decisions and emotions and can then bring a rebound affect on the same. When someone does something to someone and they get either happy or upset it was the act that caused the soul to react emotionally that sends the electric impulses to activate the body in a certain way, not the other way around.

You're talking like if chemicals are the cause of someone getting mad because someone called them a name or something.

Nevertheless, this had nothing to do with the point of my post, you just took it and went apples when I was talking about oranges. Touche.

According to this thread no one thinks anyone in the world is dumb

Yeah, you can. When it comes to admissions standards and getting into the school he intends to go to, they do have minimums and he passed them.



Ignorance of the highest order. There isn't even any such thing.



Also very, very naive.


wow you are crazy if you really think Dez Bryant worked his butt off in high school in the special class and got a full ride to college because of his grades and his SAT scores. Im sure he could have scored a 500 (which is really low) and still get accepted because of his athletics, that happens all the time.

You really think someone who was in special classes gets free rides to college because of their miraculous SAT scores? they were going to accept him no matter what because of his athletic talent. so him doing good enough on the SAT doesnt justify. you are very naive bud.

This thread should be locked. Those who started it and keep it going are engaging in rank speculation that borders on the offensive in it's mockery of those with learning disabilities.
