The Rob Ryan-Jason Garrett experiment might end before it gets a chance to really begin, if cornerback Frank Walker is right about the immediate future of Ryan.
The veteran cornerback, who played for Rob’s brother Rex in Baltimore, was asked in a recent interview if he believes that the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator would some day become a head coach in the NFL.
“Oh, absolutely,” Walker responded, per the Dallas Morning News. “Probably next season.”
Which would obviously be good for Ryan, and bad for Dallas, considering that the Cowboys are ranked fifth in total defense in the NFL this season, after three weeks. Beyond that, as we knew of both the Ryan brothers before Rob ever came to town, players simply love to play for the guy.
"You know what, man, playing with his brother, Rex, they're split images of each other,” Walker said. “They're both fun, they're great guys and the way they interact with players it encourages players to rally around them and always want to make them look good. You get a lot of good play out of players."
