Since Rob Ryan took over the defense, we’ve begun to look forward to Fridays for reasons other than the promise of happy hours and the end of the work week. Because Friday is the day that defensive coordinator Rob Ryan speaks to the media, and for the most part, he always says something interesting or amusing. Today was no exception.
Ryan theorized Friday that he was the reason that Jerry Jones might be “scared” of the Eagles, following a 34-7 beat-down at the hands of Philly back in October which (obviously) saw a pitiful performance from Ryan’s defense.
"Well, I think I made him scared the last time," Ryan said, per the Dallas Morning News. "He saw that matchup and went, 'Oh my god, I'm scared to death.'"
But while he’ll acknowledge the ugliness of that last game, Ryan is looking forward to getting another shot at the Eagles.
"It was a travesty out there," Ryan said. "But again, we didn't have a very good plan out there. We do have the ultimate mulligan here. This is for all the marbles. We're excited about the opportunity. We've put ourselves in a great situation. Our defensive players are jacked up and ready to go... We're excited about it."
