A sampling of Ryan's comments:
» On Belichick: "You know what's funny? We have conversations. We talk about baseball. We talk about anything. I personally like Belichick. And I have more respect for Belichick than any coach in this league, as you guys know. But again, I still want to beat him. And the fact that he's in our division -- I'm paid to beat him. ... They lost three games last year, two to us."
» On Brady: "One day, I expect him to roll out one time and just launch a ball at me and take the incompletion. That's what I worry about. I do like to play with him a little bit. But what a great quarterback."
» On his brother, Rob Ryan, the new defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys: "I always say this to him, and I believe it: I think they'll be second in the league in defense this year."
