Rob Ryan took some guff for putting Sunday night’s loss to the Eagles all on his shoulders. Some folks, apparently, think it’s unbecoming of a defensive coordinator to do that. But head coach Jason Garrett doesn’t have a problem with it, as he made clear in his comments on Monday.
"I think one of the things we talk about as an organization is having the right kind of people in your organization as coaches and players and everybody involved in our football operation," Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "When you lose a game there are two ways to go. You could say it's somebody else's fault or you take responsibility, accountability for what your job is within that ball game and I think we had a lot of guys who want to take responsibility and be accountable for what they did or didn't do in the game and Rob is certainly one of them.
“I think we have a number of players who have the same approach, a number of really good players who have the same approach said the same kind of thing to me today."
This sort of approach certainly makes sense. And considering the beat-down the Eagles gave the Cowboys on Sunday night, we can’t blame Jason Garrett for not blaming Ryan for taking the blame.
