    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.

    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
